Executive Voice

Kate Katzman on her journey to Hollywood, finding a true calling in acting

It seems very easy for some people – they go to college and know the area to opt for. Then, they step into higher studies and predict the exact path their life and career will take. On the other hand, many find it hard to navigate that route due to a lot more twists and turns on the way.

Embrace change and adapt

People change their careers, choices, and approach and yet nothing feels right. They often face the trouble of finding the right fit, and then they begin to wonder if there’s something like the “right fit” out there. But Kate Katzman is of the opinion that you don’t just find your true calling easily, you need to make it happen and embrace changes as and when they come. As someone whose life and career has evolved multiple times, she believes that rather than waiting for fate to turn things around, we must challenge the odds that could be blocking us in order to attain purpose in our life and career.

Turn your interests into passions

What started as a fun activity for Kate Katzman turned into a passion. Kate decided to try her luck in acting and enrolled in the prestigious Burt Reynolds Institute for Film and Theatre in Jupiter, Florida. She was trained by the superstar himself, who gave an immense boost to her confidence. After completing her master class, she went on to appear in numerous movies, including ‘Walk Before Mickey’, where she played Walt Disney’s wife, Lillian. In 2019, she was also seen in ‘Santa in Training’ and ‘A Christmas Carol.’

Dedication and effort yields results

This year, Katzman will be seen in ‘Adverse,’ a neo-noir film starring an ensemble cast of Mickey Rourke, Penelope Ann Miller, and Lou Diamond Phillips, among many more. Furthermore, she will also share the screen with Hollywood legends Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, and Tommy Lee Jones in the comedy film ‘The Comeback Trail’ directed by George Gallo. When asked about her projects in 2020, Kate replied, “It was quite an experience rubbing shoulders and keeping up with the big boys in Hollywood. It has been exhilarating and enjoyable while learning a lot more about the craft”. Kate shuffles between Palm Beach County, Florida, and Bucks County, Pennsylvania, with her husband and two children.


Just like Kate Katzman, all need to find their life’s true calling. Some have the fire in them but not enough to do something about it. While some don’t hesitate to change their paths, but sure it’s worth the effort in the end.
