'Kate’s passion for the arts is gleeful, infectious, and clearly reflected in her work'.
It was on one of my first jobs that I had the good fortune to work with Kate Ellis. Film sets are notoriously high pressure and intimidating environments, especially as a young actor. Throughout the six month shoot, Kate’s support was ceaseless and her guidance invaluable to me. As a performer herself, Kate has a truly insightful understanding of actors. In working with Kate, I learned that there is always something more to be discovered, no matter how diligently you think you’ve dissected the material. She has a wonderful ability to make all those around her feel safe and supported. I think that because of this, she is able to push her students further from their comfort zones than they ever thought possible. Kate’s passion for the arts is gleeful, infectious, and clearly reflected in her work. I simply cannot recommend her highly enough and I certainly hope to work with her again in the future.
