The Studio for Professional Actors, Pamela Sheehan Decker


Jillian Shea Spaeder

"My role on Disney XD's

WALK THE PRANK requires good improvisation. I can honestly say that I would not have gotten this role without the improv skills Pamela taught me from the very beginning. Her coaching really helped me start my acting career." ~Jillian

Jillian is cast as Bailey in Disney XD's new series Walk the Prank. The single-camera comedy, premiering Wednesday, April 6—mashes scripted comedy with a hidden-camera element, where the four main characters play pranks on actual unsuspecting bystanders. The pranks are inspired by the gang's own school and home life in the series, and are filmed for the kids' online show-within-a-show, also titled Walk the Prank.

"Some of Pamela's best qualities is her flexibility and her ability to listen and relate to children. She is organized and focused. Children seem to have fun and feel excited about their work with her. She is an asset to the acting and teaching sector." ~Ramona Gwynn (Lexi's mom)

Lexi WON "Best Actress in a Play" for her portrayal of Helen Keller in The Media Theatre's " A Miracle Worker." An amazing accomplishment at any age, let alone for a 13 year old! Lexi also won Best Actress in the entire Philadelphia region in a role where her ONLY line was the word "water" at the very end of the show! Just goes to show the number of lines you have has nothing to do with it!

Question this month: My child has been acting in  school plays and really loves acting on stage. How can The Studio for Professional Actors  help him move onto bigger roles and theatres?


"Pamela was able to teach JD valuable tools about acting, and work with him to perform at a very top level.  She was instrumental in connecting and relating with JD to teach him the skills to become a better actor.  Since meeting Pamela, JD has landed several lead roles in major theatre productions in the Philadelphia area, including Young Patrick in Mame, opposite Andrea McArdle, and Michael Hobbs in Elf at The Walnut Street Theatre.
