    About me

    BIOGRAPHY

    Katharine has been performing on stage and screen since the age of four. Her professional career took off upon arrival in London in 2007, where she worked in theatre and film for three years. Highlights include critically acclaimed roles in a musical-comedy stage adaptation of '8 Women' in which Katharine embodied the ''charisma of a young Brigitte Bardot'' [A. Waites, Remote Goat, 03/06/08], followed by her ''brilliant comedic acting'' [A. Walker, Artsphere, 21/11/2009] as the contrasting roles of Nina & Elena in 'Susanna', as well as two seasons in the Australian Shakespeare Company's production of 'Lady Chatterley's Love'. Screen work has most recently included roles in feature films 'Crime & Punishment' (January Films), 'How To Rob A Bank In Ten Easy Steps' (MadSav Films), and 'We Need To Talk About Kieran' (Big Dream Productions). Katharine has also appeared in several independent films including A Single Guy (Daniel Johnson Films), which premiered recently at the Detroit International Film Festival. Katharine also developed her Presenting portfolio in the documentary series Caught Short (Argentum Films) for Channel 1st.

    Katharine has been fortunate enough to train with the best in the business in Melbourne (VCA), London (RADA), and Los Angeles (Bernard Hiller Acting Studio). Masterclasses in Los Angeles have allowed Katharine to work with top casting director April Webster (Lost, Desperate Housewives), and world-renowned improvisation coach Cynthia Szigeti (Friends), as well as performing for directors Andy Tennant (The Bounty Hunter, Hitch) in London and Brett Rattner (Red Dragon) in the US.

    REVIEWS

    'Equus' by Hilary Binks for You're Dripping Egg 12 January 2013

    "Katharine Innes embodies the cool seductiveness of magistrate Hesther Salomon brilliantly"

    'Equus' by Chris Baldock for Theatre People 11 January 2013

    "...Katharine Innes whose Hester was the most truly creditable and real performance of the night. There was less acting and more naturalism, clearly showing what experience and focus can achieve."

    'The Last Drop' by Andrew Dodds for Melbourne Theatre Perspective 1 December 2012

    "I thought that The Last Drop was by far the best piece of the first half. Performer Adam Ward was terrific in his role as the quirky male character, as was Katharine Innes as the female character...The Last Drop was clearly a cut above the rest in the first half"

    'Nine Types Of Ice' by Andrew Dodds for Melbourne Theatre Perspective 5 December 2012

    The accents were a feature of this piece. For I only found Katharine Innes and Hana Vraniqi to be consistent...I was impressed to see that Katharine Innes was performing in yet another production within "Short + Sweet Theatre - 2012."

    Both Katharine ("Susan Blankstaff") and Hana Vraniqi ("Sue Jasperson") were able to show a great deal of range with their dialogue, which could have had the tendency to be a wash of grief and sadness."

    '8 Women' By Aline Waites for Remote Goat 3 June 2008

    ''...Particularly impressive is Kate Walsh as Chanel, the mysterious cook who sings an extremely poignant song "So not to live alone" with enormous pathos and expertise and Katharine Innes has the charisma of a young Brigitte Bardot as the sexy maid Louise…''

    '8 Women' by Julia Shipperly for The Camden New Journal 5 June 2008

    ''...The confrontations between Gaby (Sylvia Andon) and her sister Pierette (Jenny Mortier) and nurse Louise (Katharine Innes) get the winning laughs, as the characters' overbearing sexual personas clash and egos rail for supremacy over the household…''

    'Susanna' by Ali Walker for Artsphere 18 November 2009

    ''...moments of brilliant comedic acting from Clare Buckingham and Katharine Innes ...''
