Midlands Spotlight - Northampton actress Kate Fenwick

By midlandsmovies, Nov 22 2016 10:02PM


Midlands Movies is pleased to showcase the work of local actress Kate Fenwick who has recently thrown her support behind Screen Northants.


Screen Northants is a Midlands social enterprise screen agency for Northamptonshire and works both as a production company as well as creating community films for children in need and develops young stars. They have recently released an Indiegogo crowdfunding video (see above) which stars a host of regional talent.


One such local talent, who also hails from Northampton is actress Kate Fenwick who has recently starred as a student and gang member in BBC One’s Waterloo Road, the British television drama series set in a comprehensive school.


With a range of accents used in appearances as diverse as Macbeth at Alias Theatre and Dream a Little Dream at The University of Northampton Kate has also been involved in musical theatre in her career.


Kate actually began her acting career from the age of 11, when she joined theatre companies around Lincoln and before long moved forward after finding a passion for stage and screen.


“This gave me a drive to start developing my skills set which lead me to my training at The School of Arts, University of Northampton. I enjoyed all aspects of training including modules on post-modern theatre, trestle masks, clowning and on-screen acting”.



When she started out, Kate played Little Inez in Hairspray and Fizzy in Bugsy Malone at the New Youth Theatre. More recently, Kate played a variety of roles in the stage version of Anthony Burgess’ A Clockwork Orange (made infamous by the Kubrick film of the same name) at The Royal and Derngate – the theatre in the centre of Northampton’s Cultural Quarter.


With a variety of different experiences Kate has also worked with Murder Productions who deliver interactive dinner theatre experiences where guests sit down to a 3-course meal with actors playing roles in a murder mystery night of fun and investigations.


Graduating from the University of Northampton with a BA in acting in 2015, Kate hopes to move into more Midlands film and movie projects and is looking for collaborative like-minded actors and filmmakers to work with.
