MEET THE CAST…
KATE HACKETT – @hackettkate
Kate is an actress, writer, coach, and private tutor (pshew!). Her mom says she is also “very funny, Katy”. She wrote Classic Alice as a vehicle for herself to showcase her ‘smart and nerdy side’ as well as provide a female-positive series that not only shows women in a positive light, but also shows them making interesting choices. You can read a little more about her adventures in writing CLASSIC ALICE here.
Kate Hackett is an up and coming actress in Los Angeles, California, known for a quick wit and an ability to dig deep emotionally. She has been acting since she was four years old, all the way back in Maryland. She grew up doing musicals (she sings!) and other straight plays, but made the transition to film when she attended Boston University for college. Kate has worked on many independent films and commercials and has produced, starred in, and written her own content. She is fully trained in the Stanislavski, Adler, and Meisner techniques (see resume for schools) and has both studied and performed at UCB, Upright Citizen’s Brigade, in Los Angeles and with Jackson’s Onus, an awesome improv troupe. Kate loves dramatic acting, but is equally versed in comedy. Kate & Joe Just Want to Have Sex, which she wrote and stars in, reached over 230,000 views in six short months AND it is performing in the Hollyweb Film Festival.
TONY NOTO – @TheTonyNoto
Tony Noto saw Braveheart and decided to do exactly that. And by that, I mean swing swords at Englishmen with his face painted blue. After he was done saving Scotland, he graduated with a Film and Theater degree from the University of Texas and moved to Los Angeles to bring his gentlemanly charm to Hollywood. Tony is often referred to as a young mischievous Matthew McConaughey with the intensity of Michael C. Hall. Currently, Tony studies Human Behavior with Candace Silvers, granddaughter of Phil Silvers, who has worked with and coached Chris Evans, Gary Oldman, Brad Pitt, and Josh Radnor. Tony also has studied all four levels at Upright Citizens Brigade and has blended his training to develop the smart ass hero who you love to hate. Or hate to love, you choose. As well as acting Tony is a sword fighter and does fencing and stage combat in Burbank at Tim Weske’s Swordplay LA. You read that last sentence correctly. Website IMDb Facebook
