Kate trained at East 15 Acting School. On leaving drama school Kate made her west-end debut as the female lead in a play based in the 1950’s “Recipe for a Perfect Wife” at The Charing Cross Theatre. This was closely followed by roles at The Battersea Arts Centre that include; Kleopatra Maximova in “Dying For It” and Lady Macbeth in “Macbeth”. Kate also toured with various Theatre companies; in Italy (Rizzo, Grease, Lengua Senza Frontiere) and in Wales (Vestra, Sleeping Beauty, The Panto Company). Kate has also undertaken roles in various short films, most recently playing the female lead in Keeaun Jones’s latest short film “Surveillance”. Kate recently combined her acting and music skills and played Bob Dylan in a “Sold Out” series of shows that celebrated Bob Dylan’s 15th studio album “Blood on the Tracks”.

"A great actor and singer! AND lovely to work with!" [ITV/POTATO PRODUCTIONS]
“Like Edith Piaf and Judy Garland all wrapped up in one!” [Helen Lederer]
“A change of pace ensues when Ethan Loftus and Kate Thomas take to the stage as Lenny and Ange, the two achingly working-class terrors from Doug Lucie’s Progress. In a difficult scene, both performers bring their characters to life emotionally, creating a palpable tension during their short time on stage.” [The Stage]
“A scene from The Priory by Michael Wynne provides wonderful casting for Frankie Meredith and Kate Thomas as Laura and Kate. Meredith imbibes Laura with a wide-eyed, innocent quality that juxtaposes beautifully with Thomas’s well-judged, insecure Kate.” [The Stage]
