In late 2012 as the Director of a new children’s television series, ‘Hoopla Doopla’, I was on the lookout for 3 highly skilled circus performers with great acting ability to form part of my cast. This proved to be a very difficult task with over 400 auditionees trying out for the various roles. Most had great skills but were lacking on the acting side. Katie was one of the exceptions. She stood out as a natural comedic talent with amazing juggling skills, and an irresistible connection to the camera” - Mark Barnard Director Ankle Biters Film and Television Drama Director ‘Hoopla Doopla’
