Become a booked and fulfilled actor while saving years of fruitless hustle

The hybrid group and 1:1 accelerator program for actors who want to level up and have a successful acting career within a full life.


My love, you have been fed outdated and unhealthy narratives about how to achieve success in your acting career for far too long.

I mean no disrespect, but you have simply sacrificed too much of your precious time, money, relationships, well-being and life... to be working less than a quarter of the year as a paid actor.


There is a healthier way... THAT WORKS!

It is possible for you to have success in your acting career by being strategic and technically skilled, whilst you also;

✨ Nurture your emotional well-being

✨ Support yourself financially

✨ Pursue hobbies

✨ Cultivate meaningful relationships

✨ Prioritise rest

This program is your best next move if;


You want to feel autonomous and empowered in your acting career


You are ready to put the work in to elevate to the next level


You want to live a life you love en route to professional success

I'll give you my EXACT framework and strategies that I have used to:

It's time to get un-stuck.

I will personally guide you to step into the spotlight of your acting career; taking you from a stuck, helpless, isolated and out-of-work → to in your power, confident, aligned, and equipped to flourish!

strategy to get you acting now, instead of waiting to act

personalised coaching to help you overcome your blocks

resources to help you keep advancing after the program

A community of actors to support you through it all

This is a holistic program for actors who want to make acting their number one vocation via the most effective all-round career, health, and creative decisions for you.


"The person I was at the start of the program and the person I was at the end are two completely different people." 

Mindset matters most.

The way you think impacts how effectively you manage and navigate your life and therefore your career, so naturally, we have to start there.

Personal success leads to professional success.

It is a journey of action-focused transformation in both your acting career and wider life, designed to accelerate your path to success and integrate the holistic tools you need to thrive, in a healthy and sustainable way long-term.

"Only two weeks after finishing The Booked Club, I booked my first TV role!"


✨The Booked Club✨

Hi, I'm Adele James 👋🏽

I was always worried that I either wasn't doing enough, or was somehow missing something everyone else knew. Especially as a black-biracial actress, from a single-mother, working-class home, who started out in the industry with no contacts and no formal drama school education...

I created ✨The Booked Club✨ because the road to success for me hasn't been easy. I've been where you are. I've felt how lonely it is. How impossible it feels. I've tasted what it is to overcome and triumph!


Your dreams are possible too - I know it. I can't wait to help you grab them with both hands!

This is when Ana and I met IRL for the first time after I watched her perform her West End debut - a job she booked from working with me! 🥹

There's power in community.

Not only can I guarantee you an epic transformation by the time you have finished this program; but you will also graduate into my wider client community once the program has ended, for ongoing support and solidarity as you journey forwards.


Just hit the button below to get started! 💛

Please note: this program is not designed to support complete beginners.


  • When does the program start?
    The next cohort of The Booked Club begin sessions on Sunday 12th May 2024. Sessions run every Sunday evening.
  • How can I join the program?
    Places on the program are extremely limited so that Adele can give everyone the support they deserve, and all places are subject to a free 60-minute application call with Adele first. Applications will re-open in April 2024.
  • Is the program group or 1:1 coaching?
    ✨The Booked Club✨ offers a unique hybrid of weekly group coaching sessions and extra 1:1 support from Adele, throughout the program. Once you graduate, you will automatically enrol into Adele's wider community of clients, for continued complimentary support in the form of live monthly Zoom group coaching calls, access to the client community app to stay connected, and our full archive of resources, and community workshop and Q+A replays.
  • Is this program instructor-led or self-paced?
    ✨The Booked Club✨ consists of a series of 11x live weekly group sessions all led by theatre, film and TV star Adele James, plus 1x live mid-way 1:1 per participant. All of the group sessions are also recorded, however, so you can follow the program at your own pace if you can’t make the group sessions live (previous clients have done this and thrived!). You can also replay the program sessions after graduating the program, via your client portal which you will continue to have access to once the program ends.
  • I'm not based in the UK, can I join the program?
    Absolutely! This program has been designed to support all actors take the reigns on their career no matter where in the world they are based - because in essence we are actually all up against the same things! In fact, our previous cohort included actors from the UK, the USA and Canada; and Adele's client community also has actors based in South Africa, Italy, Amsterdam and Hungary as well! 🌍
  • Do I need to have experience or training to join?
    This program has been designed to best support actors who know for sure that acting is the career they want to pursue - which, respectfully, you can only best guarantee when you have undergone at least some part time training and/or given acting a shot for a little while. We are best positioned to help those via this program who already have some understanding of the industry and therefore what they need help navigating to get unstuck. As such ✨The Booked Club✨ is for those actors who are looking to level up in their careers, not who are looking to get started. If you are totally new to acting, don't worry - we gotchu! You can join Adele's mailing list check out the free Blog + Resources page on our website, or head to our Instagram page where we post free resources and support frequently. When you do have a little more experience under your belt, we would love for you to come back and apply for ✨The Booked Club✨ further down the line! 💛
