Katherine M. Tucker is an Australian screen, theatre and musical actress from the beautiful state of Tasmania, now working in Australia, Los Angeles, USA, and England, UK.
An avid traveller, Katherine loves to be out on location and enjoys travelling to different states and countries for interesting projects; "I seek to find roles and productions that I'm passionate about bringing to life!"
Originally a theatre-trained actor, Katherine has a keen love for Shakespearean and period productions and relishes the intellectual aspects of live theatre. She received training in multiple acting techniques, including Meisner, Alexander, Stanislavsky and Sensory, from various studios around Australia and in Los Angeles. Having also received her Bachelors of Performing Arts from Monash University and performing in various stage productions in Melbourne and Tasmania, she soon became fascinated with the concept of "screen" acting. Katherine auditioned, was offered multiple scholarships to and then graduated with a post-graduate degree from The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Los Angeles. There she gained much more knowledge and experience in acting techniques and the accommodations necessary for movement between the stage and screen respectively.
With a rather broad-range, Katherine has since worked on numerous period and contemporary plays and films as a strong young mother, depressed teenager and charismatic business woman (to name a few). This includes the emotional film 'For Your Protection', about a SWAT Dad trying to close the gap between him and his estranged teenage daughter, Mel, after the death of his wife.
Katherine's favourite roles she's played to date are Velma Kelly (Chicago the Musical), Lydia Bennet (Pride and Prejudice), Helena (A Midsummer Night's Dream) and Mel (For Your Protection).
Katherine M Tucker has just wrapped on A Night On Earth, her second British film in England, UK, where she played a young woman struggling through both a literal and figurative dark night.
Previously, Katherine was pleased to be part of a beautiful story by the name of In Their Eyes, a touching depiction of a woman struggling to care for her mother in the late stages of dementia.
This film was made to create awareness around the disease and the struggles of those suffering, both patients and carers.

"Growing up I performed as a singer in choirs and community productions, but it wasn't until I was 11 years old that I actually acted for the first time!
Of all productions, my first real step into acting was a Christmas production about Snotty the sickly elf who, feeling alienated by Santa's other helpers, tries to ruin Christmas before seeing the error of her ways.
I had originally auditioned for a minor role, but was ask to read for, and then ended up being cast as Snotty. I remember feeling very overwhelmed with the amount of lines I had to memorise, and how Mum and Dad helped me read through the script every night and even recorded it for me to listen to as I slept." - Katherine M Tucker
