AN AYR girl has left such an impression after a recent trip to Hollywood that a leading Disney coach is coming to Scotland to scout more talent.

Rachel Gilchrist, 12, was selected to take part in a prestigious training opportunity in LA earlier this year where she performed and filmed in Hollywood.

During her training Rachel worked with Wendy Faraone, who is an acting coach and director of Liv and Maddie - a popular Disney show.

Wendy is the go to acting coach in Hollywood, called upon by many casting directors, agents and managers and is renowned for delivering results and helping actors book more roles.

She has worked with some of the biggest stars on the sets of the most popular kid’s shows on television.

Her coaching credits include Sonny with a Chance with Demi Lovato and the smash hit Hannah Montana with Miley Cyrus.

Wendy has decided to come to Scotland, to continue to work with Rachel and give acting workshops for more Scottish talent.

This is the first time Scotland will have hosted any workshops like this.

Wendy said: "I can’t wait to work with Rachel again and do a workshop in Scotland for the first time."

Rachel said: "I am so honoured that Wendy is coming to Scotland and that I have helped make this happen for all the other talent in Scotland.

"Working with Wendy is amazing.

"She brings so much energy and enthusiasm to her workshops and she taught me so much about on camera work."

The workshops will take place at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in, Glasgow on Sunday August 21 2016.
