Katherine McRae

Actor, Director

Katherine McRae’s first acting role was as a child, in an adaptation of Katherine Mansfield story The Doll’s House. Thirteen years later, she was part of the main cast on TV's The Marching Girls, before her first movie, Send a Gorilla. After winning acclaim on stage, she became a regular on Shortland Street in 2006, then moved into screen directing — including Go Girls, Nothing Trivial, and short film Abandon Ship

I have to admit that I'm a drama junkie. I have always loved it and I can't give it up, so I guess I'll just keep on acting and writing and directing New Zealand stories. Katherine McRae
