from Dubuque, Iowa--population 57,000 according to the census. Kate is a 21 year-old
Pisces with only three years of New York living under her belt. she says, "I don't
have it all together." Yet, she does have a natural sense of self that is noticed
Kate had just turned professional with the American Shakespeare Theatre in Connecticut--she had the part of Emily in Thornton Wilder's Our Town--when she was spotted and recruited to play Mary Ryan. Her Irish ancestry may have made her a natural for the part but talent was the deciding factor. She plans to do more television in the future, more theatre and movies. One of her great ambitions is to play Masha in Anton P. Chekhov's The Three Sisters.
Sensitivity and talent go hand in hand and sensitivity is one of the most outstanding features of Kate's personality. "If you look at a plant or a face or a flower and think about it," she says, 'You could cry. Joy is painful." Kate can be serious, but she laughs easily and often and is sort of a practical joker, too. She astounded her audience of three during the make-over session by saying, "The Pope is being expelled from the Vatican! Didn't you hear it on the news? There's some new rule!" The beauty editor had not heard it. The hair stylist had not heard it. The photographer had not heard it. Kate burst out laughing. It was clear, then, what she meant by something she said earlier, "If we all recognize our madness we'd be better off." Everyone joined in the laughter and the session began to breeze along after that.
