Kate Madison is mostly known for directing, producing and acting in her Lord of the Rings prequel, 'Born of Hope', released on the internet in December 2009.
Although introduced to performing from the age of four, she took a bit of a hiatus to complete a Zoology Degree but quickly realised that science and academia was not really for her. In 2003 Kate set up Actors at Work Productions as a banner for various creative projects linked mostly to Stage and Film work. Early work was mainly filming theatre shows. At the same time Kate continued to grow as an actor, moving from mostly musical theatre into the world of film. Kate directed her first narrative film in 2005, a short called 'Into the Darkness'. The horsemen was another short film she directed and then of course there is Born of Hope. She has worked on a number of films, experiencing many different jobs behind the camera, including stand in and doubling work on major films like Gulliver's Travels and Harry Potter.
Kate is now looking for new challenges and is currently developing a web series, TV mini series and two feature film projects.
