On the Couch with Katherine Pearson

Katherine Pearson AAR On the CouchWho is Katherine Pearson?
The Executive Producer of Two on the Night Train and also an actress!

What would you do differently to what you do now?   
Just more of what I do – haha. More acting and producing, full time!

Who inspires you and why?
Emily Blunt – just looking at some of the wonderful roles she’s played recently! And Olivia Coleman.

What would you do to make a difference in the world?
I want to help bring Australian stories to the international stage and screen. And grow our industry here!

Favourite holiday destination and why?
Oh how can I choose? For something close by: I love going to Tasmania, particularly I love visiting my family on their massive farms, riding horses etc. recently I also went to Singapore which I LOVED, I love the heat and I love the food. Later this year I’m going to Japan and Korea too, which I’m sure will be incredible.

When friends come to town, what attraction would you take them to, and why?
I would take them out for dinner in a tiny alleyway in the city. We are so lucky to have so much fabulous food, in any cuisine. So food… and maybe a show? Or a picnic in the Botanic Gardens.

What are you currently reading?
Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari. It’s incredible!

What are you currently listening to?
Lots of French music. I’m loving L’impératrice.

Happiness is?
A long nap after a big lunch, and desert.

What does the future hold for you?
Hopefully more exciting future projects! I have a couple of large shows that I’ve recently filmed in that will be released in the next year, so that will be exciting. And I’m sure I’ll be producing another work in the near future too.

Katherine stars in Two on the Night Train at the Gasworks Theatre: 13 – 22 June 2019. For more information, visit: www.gasworks.org.au for details.
