Keeping up with Kate
Time for a quick update regarding a fabulous actress, Kate Dickie, star of Sigma's Red Road and the upcoming Donkeys. Kate is a very busy actress, having filmed Outcast earlier this year, and other projects that are now making the news.
Kate will be making a new film for BBC 2 called "Dive," which will also feature Ewan Bremner (Hallam Foe). In the two part drama Kate will be playing a diving coach named Alison. The press release says this of the film:This coming-of-age drama offers a refreshing stance on the subject of teenage pregnancy and the pressures of growing up in the UK in the 21st century.
Kate Dickie can also be seen in films at the Edinburgh Film Festival (although not yet for Donkeys alas) She is appearing in a short film called "Believe" which was directed by Paul Wright. Mr. Wright is one of the directors taking part in Sigma's Advance Party II project, and Colin even noted earlier how good this short film was. The Press & Journal reports "Believe is the story of Lewis, a man recently widowed, who is unable to accept his wife’s death and the reality of life without her, prompting his behaviour to become increasingly distressed and eccentric.
Believe will screen at the Edinburgh Film Festival June 27; ticket info here.
Kate also has a part in a serious drama called "Wasted" that focuses on the life two teen runaways face on the streets. You can see the trailer for this film here. Wasted screens first on June 19
