Kathy Burke.


Whether she is “woman in doorway” in an advert for The Guardian or the beaten, brutalised, near broken Valerie in “Nil by Mouth”, Kathy Burke is never anything other than honest.

The characters she plays are never anything less than a version of some part of herself.

It is that honesty that allows her to be the vulgar, fragile Linda La Hughes and say the most outrageous things like; “I ain’t a pussy person. When people look at me they don’t think cat, they think dog.” and have us laugh and want to reassure her simultaneously.
