Kate is an actor. And a writer and producer. She recently created and produced the series called Dropping the Soap that can be seen on Amazon. Her other acting credits include Doubt, American Crime, Gilmore Girls, Grey’s Anatomy, The Mindy Project, The Mentalist…all the shows you love. She was in the scene where Denny got his heart transplant on Grey’s. Say no more. I’m a fan.
She produced Dropping the Soap in part to get exposure doing comedy. Which she did. Jane Lynch is in it too by the way, along with a lot of other faces you will recognize.
She gives a lot of great advice about producing and about acting. For acting – know your place and be a good guest. If you are invited to a dinner party, bring a lovely bottle of wine, don’t lug in the entrée. And when producing, ask. Have good material, and they will show up.
And all the real networking happens at school.
