On the Couch with Kate Cole

Kate Cole oncWho is Kate Cole?
I’m an actor.

What would you do differently to what you do now?
Nothing, other than to work out how to earn more money.

Who inspires you and why?
People who are great at what they do.

What would you do to make a difference in the world?
Try to be kind.

Favourite holiday destination and why?
New York. Because, it’s New York!

When friends come to town, what attraction would you take then to, and why?
I’d take them to see a play at Red Stitch Actors Theatre, to a bar in the city, and I’d go to Carlton to Cinema Nova and for pizza at DOC.

What are you currently reading?
Nothing. I’ve been consumed with Grounded so I can only seem to watch tv series.  If I could manage to read at the moment, it would be 2 books written by friends who happen to be excellent writers, both young adult novels, As Stars Fall by Christie Nieman, and The Haunting Of Lily Frost by Nova Weetman.

What are you currently listening to?
My Grounded pre show playlist. Lots of ACDC and 80’s rock.

Happiness is?
Being employed as an actor.

What does the future hold for you?
I’m an actor, so I have no idea.
