Head Acting Coach

Yure Covich

For 20 years I have been a professional actor and acting coach. I have worked with actors, directors and casting agents on numerous stage, television and film projects, within Australia and internationally.

Recently I have had the pleasure to work as an actor with Melissa McCarthy on the Netflix Series, God’s Favourite Idiot. For 2023, I’ll be appearing in the ABC series The Messenger, and in the Australian Crime Drama, Last King Of the Cross for Paramount Plus.

About Me

Actor, Teacher, surfer, and dog lover…

” I had an unconventional start as an actor. I began as a roof plumber. But once I started acting, I didn’t stop…”

Growing up in Western Australia, as a teenager, I completed my trade and was building sheds in the Pilbara desert. But something else was calling. My first audition was at The Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts. It went so badly, they told me to go back to roof plumbing. Years later, that same auditionee congratulated me at my opening night of my first performance at The Sydney Theatre Company.

After graduating from The National Institute of Dramatic Art, I went on to develop my craft as an actor, performing for the Sydney Theatre CompanyBelvoir StDarlinghurst Theatre Coand The Old Ftizroy Theatre. Feature films I’ve had fun on are Red Dog, Wyrmwood and Event Zero.
