I’m a Cornish actor, writer and voiceover artist who lives in London.

Latest News

Little Blue Lines (Kate’s radio play about miscarriage and the mental health issues surrounding it) is currently going through the commissioning rounds at Radio 4. She is developing the stage adaptation and hopes to have a first reading in October during Baby Loss Awareness Week. She has everything crossed that she will get to share it with an audience one way or another soon!

She is in the process of setting up a home recording studio so do get in touch if you can put it to use!

Kate had a ball playing a demonic imp and Inge in the Doctor Who audio drama Ravenous 2, which was the Big Finish Christmas Special and had great reviews.

Recent audiobook highlights include The Lost Witch by Melvin Burgess (which she got to record in a studio overlooking the beach in Cornwall!), Dear Agnes by Håkan Nesser (love skandy drama!) and another exciting read by Holly Seddon, Love Will Tear Us Apart.

She also recorded some corporate voiceover in the summer for Cisco Webex.

Kate sings in the soul funk band Clapping For Strangers, and made her first appearance on the alto saxophone this summer. Honk honk!

 

About Me

I was born and bred in Cornwall and abandoned the big sea for the big smoke at 17 to train at Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art, London. Twenty years later (and despite only achieving ‘commended’ on my Dip. Acting) I am delighted to still earn a living acting, recording voiceovers and writing drama.

My theatre credits range from an adolescent boy, to a Shakespeare heroine, to a Cornish maid; whilst on TV I have played a drunken witch in Casualty, been shot and killed in Holby and played a number of Mothers in Doc Martin.

I regularly record audiobooks, you can listen to excerpts of some of them on Amazon. In 2015 the recording of The American Lover (a collection of short stories by Rose Tremain that I contributed to) was named one of the twenty best audiobooks of all time!

I love to travel and have performed all over the world. I play the clarinet, alto sax, ukulele and classical piano and sing in the soul funk band called Clapping For Strangers; for audio clips of me singing, see the bottom of my voice reel page.

I am currently writing a radio play about recurrent miscarriage and I continue to develop my solo theatre show Blondes Prefer Gentlemen about an obsessive fan of Marilyn Monroe. You can watch the trailer here.

Aside from acting I enjoy anything outdoorsy that gets my heart pumping, snowboarding, diving, meditation and running around after my little boys, Gillan and Arty.

Please refer to the contacts page should you wish to get in touch, I’d love to hear from you!
