ABOUT KATHIE BARNES (ACTRESS)
Other favorite theatre roles include Agnes in “Dancing at Lughnasa” (Beverly Hills Outlook Award – Best Actress nomination), Cora in “The Dark at the Top of the Stairs”, and Deeny in “The Old Neighborhood”. Also, Emily and The Wife in “Bradbury X 2” (Valley Theatre League Award – Best Actress nomination) produced by Ray Bradbury’s Pandemonium Theatre Company.
As a member of Ray Bradbury’s extended family, she was asked to read a passage written by Ray at the “Ray Bradbury Read” in Los Angeles in August 2016 along with Joe Montegna and others. She has also been privileged to bring to life some of Ray Bradbury’s other exquisitely written characters, including Blanch Hillgood in “The Day It Rained Forever” and Helen Loomis in “The Swan”.
Other interests include Saving the Tiger – and anything to do with tigers. A lifelong dream came true in 2016 when she went to India and stayed on Tiger Preserves, living with and tracking tigers in the wild.
She notes that Dr. Mary Walker is truly a hero and she is touched and honored to portray her.
