Bio: Acting

Kat is a skilled and diverse actor who has been described as "spontaneous and versatile”, and whose characters are said to be "multi-textured" and "deeply vulnerable". She has performed on stage and screen in both dramatic and comedic roles.

 

Kat’s film work has been shown internationally and afforded her the opportunities to work formally and informally with numerous stars and up and comers from both sides of the camera and audio booth. Kat’s work in feature films includes Dirty Singles (2014), I'll Follow You Down staring Haley Joel Osment Erol and Gillian Anderson (2013), The Conspiracy starring Aaron Poole and James Gilbert (2012), Small Town Murder Songs starring Peter Stormare, Aaron Poole, Jill Hennessy and Martha Plimpton (2010) and This Beautiful City (2007).

 

Kat is a graduate of Acadia University's Theatre Program, the Second City Conservatory, and an alumna of the Impatient Theatre Company. She continues to hone her craft through several of Toronto’s acting studios, the bulk of which was spent studying Meisner with John Riven.
