Los Angeles based actress Catherine “Cat” Healy recently wrote, produced and starred in two short films called The Interview and Vegan and Then Sum, garnering heavy praise on the film festival circuit. Cat has gained multiple official selections, 3 best actor nominations, and a best director nomination for her team from Across The Globe Film Festival. She also received her first Award of Excellence for both comedy shorts from The IndieFEST Film Awards.
“Instead of waiting for someone to hire me for a role that would highlight my strengths, I decided to create my own content and take parts of it to create a comedy acting reel,” Cat remarks. “I thought about themes that made me laugh and extrapolated on them. I could not even imagine one official selection, let alone my first awards for TWO comedy shorts. I am humbled and grateful for these silver linings amidst the strange days we live in. The show must go on!”
As an actress, she has studied with the prestigious Stella Adler Conservatory, Janet Alhanti Studios, The Groundlings Improv School and found success with supporting roles in prime-time television, including “JAG”, the MTV series “Undressed” and Showtime’s “The Cool & The Crazy” starring Alicia Silverstone and Jared Leto. She can be heard on the Netflix series currently in post-production called “Brasoria,” and can be seen in a supporting role in the upcoming heartfelt family drama, “Middleton Christmas,” starring Michael Pare and Eileen Davidson.
She is currently working on her third project, a short adapted from a play called “Anything For You,” written by Catherine Celesia Allen. She intends to take it on the festival circuit too, but it was already in conflict with another production.
