This was her first on-camera role anywhere, which isn't bad for a girl of 17. She had a solid secondary role in this Hallmark production, which I watched on TV years ago before buying a VHS copy for my Kate collection. I don't think this one will make it to DVD, unless Hallmark TV wants to release a collection of their made-for-TV movies.
Kate was enthusiastic when performing the role, but not overdoing it. She was the daughter of one of my favorite quirky actresses, Judy Davis. Kate's role required her to fall in love with a German soldier, a definate no-no since her mother was part of the Resistance.
After Kate finished this movie in the summer of 1990, she was off to Oxford's New College, where she immersed herself in studies for two years. She acted in school productions, where she met her first boyfriend. It wasn't until her second year that Kate landed the part for "Much Ado About Nothing," which she filmed during summer 1992. By that time, she wanted to explore the world, and wound up in Paris for her third year at Oxford.
That year, Kate made the very obscure "Marie-Louise" (filmed 1993, released 1995) and eventually decided that university wasn't in the cards for her. She wound up in Spain in early 1994 for the filming of "Uncovered," and after that didn't go anywhere, she landed the part of Flora Poste in the BBC production of "Cold Comfort Farm" in fall 1994.
Etc., etc....and all not bad work for someone who was only 21 by the time filming began in London for "Cold Comfort Farm."
