Stop, Start Continues

StartTV_My_Start_Story_part_2_010

The Start TV network has posted some additional items on their website referencing Kathryn.

The channel is very much focussed on women in and around the media.  All but one of the main shows they broadcast is female lead.  Only Early Edition starring Kyle Chandler (Catch-22) gets a look in, and he’s relegated to the appropriately middle of the night slots.  Cold Case gets televised back-to-back in mid-afternoon double.

First up is a brief article previewing a series of pieces celebrating women in TV ahead of the Emmy Awards, which happens on Sunday (22nd September).  After a quick recap of Kathryn’s career (so far) they link back to the interview we covered here back in July.  Not surprisingly that interview was not a complete transcript of the conversation which took place, and they have been holding bits back for use in these extra items.  It ends with this quote:

“I never really looked at Cold Case as an overnight success. I feel like I had 13, 14, 15 years of being an apprentice or a journeyman. I never underestimate the small steps in learning to become an actor.” After a pause, she added, “or learning how to do anything in life.”

Next is a much longer feature covering ten women, including Kathryn and Tracie Thoms (Kat Miller in CC), that work in and around TV.  There are actors, producers and writers.

I assume that Start TV will continue to post pieces like these in the future and I will endeavour to highlight the ones involving Kathryn when they do.

Kathryn’s Start Story

StartTV_My_Start_Story_part_1_010

Sit down children, and then I’ll begin…

Remember the surprise selfies (selfi?) posted by Tracie back in March?  Well in case you don’t you can view that post HERE.  It was clear the photos had something to do with the new female-centric US television network Start TV, currently broadcasting Cold Case daily, and I hoped we would hear about it later.  That time has finally arrived.

Start TV has published Kathryn’s My Start Story article.  It details Kathryn’s early life performing in her family’s gospel group, The Morris Code, through her introduction to movies and getting the role of Lilly Rush in Cold Case.  There are quotes from Kathryn throughout and a couple of short video clips as companion items.

I urge you to read the full article HERE on the Start TV website.

Of course Tracie was there too and you can read her My Start Story HERE.

It wouldn’t be KM UK without some images and in this case we have some nice HD (720p) screencaps from the two video clips in the Gallery, and we have small versions of the videos for completeness.

Have a good weekend.

Jeremy Meets The Standard

jeremy_ratchford_001_430x180

The Standard being The St. Catharines Standard newspaper from the area of Ontario, Canada, that Jeremy Ratchford (Nick Vera in CC) hails from.  Jeremy is from Kitchener, which is around 60 miles from St. Catharines, which is just a long stone’s throw away from the famous Niagara Falls.

Normally I wouldn’t reference a newspaper interview like this but The Standard has published Joel Rubinoff’s interview with Jeremy, which is part of a series of interviews with significant locals involved in the arts and entertainments sector, in which he mentions Kathryn several times.

From the transcript Joel and Jeremy had an interesting and entertaining chat a little outside the normal brief career summary, refer to thing they are known for, tell us about your latest project, celebrity interview.  I’ll leave you to read the whole thing HERE on The Standard’s website.

On KM UK we’ll focus on the Kathryn references.  First up Joel asks about Jeremy bringing up 3 boys.

Joel: Kathryn Morris, your “Cold Case” co-star, has four-year-old twins. Do you confer with her about child-rearing?

Jeremy:  She and I talk all the time about what’s best for the lads. Five boys between us. She hooked us up with a summer camp last year. My eldest did community service to apply to his high school credits and my little men did ‘vaulting’ on horses.

Joel:  Series pitch: Jeremy Ratchford and Kathryn Morris play former cop show co-stars who live near each other and discuss parenting issues.

Jeremy:  Might work as a podcast?

I know we’d all listen to that!  It is nice to learn that the ex-workmates are in regular contact still.

Next up are some less than predictable ideas from Jeremy in answer to one of the few more predictable questions:

Joel:  If “Cold Case” came back today, how would it be different?

Jeremy:  Kathryn would be the head of the FBI. Thom and I would have a P.I. business called “Private Eyes Are Watching You,” with our jingle provided by Hall & Oates. Danny would have given up his cop life to follow his dream of organic magic. Tracy becomes the first female police chief of Philly. John — after an undercover operation — grows his hair out and plays bongos in a touring Grateful Dead cover band. Somehow we all reunite to discover if Elvis is still alive.

Head of the FBI is not currently the sort-after job it was back in 2010.  Did we ever see Scotty (Danny Pino) show an interest in magic.  And what’s organic magic?  Making free-range carrots disappear?  We definitely want to see John (John Finn) as a serious ‘Deadhead’ and the team reunite to find Big Foot :-)

Thanks to Joel and Jeremy.

Yes, I’ve noticed the Catharines/Kathryn thing :-)

New York Comic Con 2017 New Video + Updates

nycc_video_008_024

An important aspect of KM UK which I hope all our readers appreciate is the fact that no story is truly closed off.  We could return at any time to an item covered before.  KM UK is constantly on the look out for new and updated content to bring you.

And so we go back to the New York Comic Con event from early October last year for something new and a couple of updates.  Kathryn was at the event to promote the upcoming TV show Reverie.

First up is a video of the Reverie panel, where the key cast and crew discuss their project in front of an audience, by Mynda Bullock which has recently become available.  You can watch the full video recorded by Mynda on YouTube HERE.  Kathryn’s part starts about 10 minutes in.  A small copy of just Kathryn’s segment, as video 8, is in the KM UK Gallery HERE (there are some screencaps from it too).

In the complete piece each of the cast (Sarah Shahi, Dennis Haysbert, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Jessica Lu, and Kathryn) and writer/producer Mickey Fisher and writer Tom Szentgyorgyi get to talk about Reverie.  They describe their role and share some feelings about the show and its meanings.

The audio is not great quality so I’ll try and describe what Kathryn says.  She is asked by the interviewer (sorry I don’t know who it is) about her character being, essentially, the villain of the show.  Kathryn’s response is to say that her Department Of Defence employee has a lot of mystery and that the writers have created a show with a lot of emotion as well as being futuristic.  She adds that despite her work Monica Shaw is human and even the bad guys have light and dark aspects, and that was very important to her attraction to the role.

To further gild this lily (see what I did there?) we have a couple of photos from the same NYCC event updated to new and improved super size.  Catch them (numbers 6 and 38) in the Gallery HERE.

Reverie is due to start on May 30th.

Kathryn’s A Minx For Lynx

nycc_video_007_035

A couple of weeks on from the New York Comic Con we still seeing content released from it.

nycc_video_007The latest is a video of Greg Bernard of Entertain Lynx putting a few questions to Kathryn Morris and Jessica on the red carpet.  The two ladies, ‘Jess and Kat’, were promoting the upcoming TV series Reverie.

It’s all a bit of silly fun.  Jessica is clearly a bad influence on our Kathryn as she drops the ‘b’ word :-)  We don’t get to learn much about the show except that Kathryn’s DoD staffer Monica Shaw bullies Jessica’s software engineer Alexis Barrett.

Watch the video in full on YouTube HERE.

A small version of the video and a set of HD screencaps are now in the KM UK Gallery.
