Katherine is an actress, writer and producer. Her feature film script was shortlisted for the BAFTA Rocliffe New Writing Competition 2017, and in September 2017 she was selected for a Writers’ Room with the Story Editor of BBC’s Doctors.

Katherine’s acting credits include Anthony Horowitz’s Foyle’s War, Stephen Poliakoff’s Dancing on the Edge, and Ophelia in Tom Stoppard’s Rosencrantz & Guildenstern, directed by Sir Trevor Nunn. As a voiceover artist she works for commercial and corporate clients, and has recorded several audiobooks.

Following professional ballet training, Katherine read History of Art at the University of Cambridge, and graduated from an MA in Film & Television at Falmouth University. While at Falmouth she produced a Grierson-Award shortlisted documentary and a comedy-drama feature film A Bad Penny (currently in post-production), in which she also played the title role.

As a winner of the University Women in the Arts programme, from 2016–18 she is being mentored by leading female figures from the arts industries, including Anne Edyvean (Head of BBC Writersroom), Charlotte Higgins (Chief Culture Writer at The Guardian), Joanna Prior (MD of Penguin Books), and Amanda Foreman (Chair of The Man Booker Prize).


“When you’re filming non-sequentially, it’s so useful to remember John’s 10 tips. They really help actors to key into character motivation and development.”
