Catherine ‘s creativity is reflected in the eclectic credits on her CV including rep, site specific, film and TV. Recently she played May/Mother in Beckett’s Footfalls alongside classical pianist An-Ting Chang. This proved one of the most demanding projects Catherine has tackled which left us in no doubt that she could rise to any challenge. The 'Mother' in this piece was recorded voice -an aged character with exceptional power & gravitas.

Over the last 18 months Catherine has appeared in a number of feature and short films including ‘Where I Belong’ directed by Fritz Urschwitz, playing Glaswegian working class mother Claire Wright opposite Nathalie Press and Mathias Habich and due for release in 2013
