Oscar winner Natalie Portman has signed up to advise wannabe actors on honing their craft as part of a new online masterclass.

The Black Swan star will share her unique approach to acting as part of the $90 (£68) class.

"Acting is a joyful experience. It's the act of empathy and play," the actress said. "You should be free to be creative, try new things and make mistakes. That is how I learned.

"In this class, I'm excited to share what I've pieced together over 25 years as an actress - things that have worked for me, things that I've seen work well for others, and things I figured out myself."

In her MasterClass, Portman will "share her many approaches to acting for the screen" and "teach students how building a character map" - a technique she finds useful as she's understanding a character's journey.

The star will also show students how to work with the director and camera to "create stronger performances", and she'll also help aspiring actors perfect the "fine line between taking direction while bringing your own ideas to the table".

During the classes, Natalie will use her own case studies from Black Swan and Jackie, explaining how she researches characters for both historical and fictional roles, how she builds the physicality and the consciousness of the character and how she defines the "voice and nuances of dialect for different roles", while demonstrating training exercises with her dialect coach.

Australia to wait for global digital tax

Australia to wait for global digital tax Australia won't tax the revenue of online giants such as Google and Facebook until a global consensus is reached on the best way to do so. Australia has decided against introducing its own digital services tax, opting instead to wait for global agreement on the best way to handle the revenue of online players, including Google and Amazon. The choice comes after business groups and others warned the federal government against creating its own tax for the digital economy, in their responses to a discussion paper.

Natalie Portman (born Neta-Lee Hershlag; June 9, 1981) is a film actress , producer, writer, and director with dual Israeli and American citizenship.

Natalie Portman has launched her very own online acting masterclass and we want in. Natalie even has a whole list of awards to her name, including the Academy Award for Best Actress for her appearance in Black Swan, so anything she can teach us is going to be pretty incredible.

"Natalie is thrilling," said David Rogier, co-founder and CEO of MasterClass. "She approaches each role with a ferociousness and artistry that simply make her one of the best actresses of her generation - and she's done it without formal training. Her class dives into the craft in ways no other class has done - teaching you how to create the career you want and to understand everything from character mapping, to dialect, to responding to your sets to green screen acting. The class will blow you away."

Portman joins the likes of Christina Aguilera, Samuel L. Jackson, Dustin Hoffman, and Steve Martin, who have also fronted online MasterClasses as part of the 14-year-old programme.

MAFS' executive producer Tara McWilliams also addressed the reports, describing them as 'ridiculous'. 'The brides and grooms are not hired actors,' she said.
