Biography - Kate
Kate Isitt trained at the Arts Educational School, "which involved
a rigorous three years method training. I never intended to be a comedy
actress. I thought I would get stereotyped as a classic stage actress."

in which she played the glamorous but prickly secretary Alison: "I was
incredibly lucky that that put me on the map as a comedy actress."
