Cynthia Bain has been the Owner and Artistic Director of the renowned ‘Cynthia Bain’s Young Actor Studio’ (CBYAS) for the last two decades. She began her career as a young performer at the age of 14 as a Guest Star on the hit show ‘CHiPs.’ Cynthia later earned a Bachelor’s Degree from UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television, and subsequently trained for many years with the legendary acting coach Roy London, while working professionally as an actor. During this time, she discovered her experience and talents were uniquely effective behind the cameras and began directing, teaching and coaching young actors. Many years later, Cynthia and CBYAS are recognized as being preeminent industry experts, coaches, and performance consultants to networks, studios and young actors.
