Interview with Kate Barton
This week we caught up with actress Kate Barton who is playing the title role of Ellie in Ellie & Starlight the Musical.
What inspired you to become an actor?
I grew up watching all the old Hollywood movies such as Carousel and Top Hat and initially I wanted to be an actor so I could work with Fred Astaire! As I got older I did regular youth theatre and realised that acting gave me a freedom and form of expression that was not always possible in real life.
Can you tell us a little about your training as an actor and what it involved?
Playing Ellie will no doubt be a challenging role to take on. How do you plan to tackle the part?
