023: Kat Stewart

The Blank Canvas Podcast

Episode 23 of The Blank Canvas with Kat Stewart. Making a career in the performing arts is notoriously challenging but in this case the cream has certainly risen to the top.  Kat Stewart's searing performance as Roberta Williams in the iconic first TV series of UNDERBELLY, planted her into our collective consciousness. Kat received both the 2008 AFI Award for Best Lead Actress and the 2009 Logie Award for Most Outstanding Actress. Whether comedy, drama or anything in between, the incredible performances and accolades have followed ever since, however Kat is probably best known for her AACTA Award winning portrayal of Billie Proudman in the TV phenomenon - Offspring. Aside from being a lovely human and charming conversationalist, this is an inspiring career change story; Kat completed a degree in marketing and arts and was working as full time publicist for publisher Penguin Books. Unable to shake the acting bug from some university theatre she dabbled in, she studied acting at night after work for 3 years, eventually getting her confidence up to taking the plunge into that arena. "There are some people that have just driven by an innate self-belief, I'm driven by a lot of self doubt, but it means that I work really hard because I do think that I can fail at any second. You know, every time I take on a job, I think, oh shit. I don't know if I can pull this off. Every character you starting from ground zero, but in a way that's the greatest thing, the fear and the trepidation is a respect for the task at hand.” Kat’s latest hit TV series is FIVE BEDROOMS which is produced by Hoodlum. Series Two is returning to Network 10 in 2021. https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1830811/ https://www.instagram.com/kat_stewy/ W: https://theblankcanvaspodcast.com.au/ W: https://leerogers.com.au/ SOCIALS Insta: @theblankcanvaspodcast FB - The Blank Canvas Podcast Twitter: @blankcanvaspod THE BLANK CANVAS TEAM Produced by Lee Rogers & Rien MacDonald.

#027 AOS Kat Stewart & Leigh Burger

Art of Surrender

On this episode of the podcast I sat down with Kat Stewart and Leigh Burger from Grappling Technics in Osborne Park, WA. Kat is a blue belt under Leigh and Leigh is a 2nd degree black belt and the owner/head coach of GT. This is also Leigh's second appearance on AOS, so it was a pleasure to get back down to GT for another class and some more rolls with his crew! We had a chat about Kat's journey, how she got involved in jiu jitsu initially and what her expectations were compared to the experience. We also spoke about competition and many other things. We also answered some questions from the listeners too, lol. Enjoy and please follow the AOS instagram and subscribe to the podcast!

Kat Stewart: PR to Award Winning Actor

Freedom Hunters

Kat Stewart is an Aussie household name due to her many stellar and powerful performances in the very best of Australian TV and theatre, which have led to her winning many accolades including AACTA and Logie awards. Kat became known in Australia for her stunning performances as Roberta Williams in Underbelly, and as Billie Proudman in my favourite Australian series, Offspring. When we spoke she had just wrapped up filming the second season of her latest TV show, Five Bedrooms. I talked to Kat about her career, and how she started out working in PR in Melbourne. However there was something inside her that just had to pursue her passion for performing, and so she transitioned her career from PR to acting. It wasn’t an easy road to follow, and Kat was very frank about the challenges that she faced when first starting out in acting. But if you are contemplating a career in acting or in the creative arts, her advice is encouraging. If you have that creative passion burning inside you, you’ve just got to do it. And if you’re in a career right now that you don’t necessarily love, it can always help you as you explore your creative side and turn it into your career.

Kat Stewart // Our fabulous favourite returns for Five Bedrooms

Seize the Yay

I’m sure I’m not alone in having been touched by this woman’s career at some point or another in one of the many stellar roles she has portrayed that have made her an Aussie household name. Kat Stewart is one of our most outstanding actresses winning many accolades for her talents including AACTA and the coveted Logie awards.But as you’ll hear today, despite her immense gratitude for the recognition she has earned, she is the ultimate professional and passionately dedicated to the art form in both TV and theatre and I love her attitude of just putting her head down and getting the job done well. Extremely down to earth and originally from Bairnsdale where my own family is from, she was such a pleasure to chat to and I loved her honesty about not only the fun and glamorous moments but the very nitty gritty parts of forming an acting career.You may recognise her as Roberta Williams in Underbelly or Billie Proudman in Offspring (with many TV and theatre roles in between) but what I’m so excited about is her new show Five Bedrooms on Channel 10. A comedy drama based on the disaster of buying property these days, it focuses on 5 different people who end up at the singles table at a wedding and eventually buy a house together with each episode narrated by a different character. At the time of recording, it was just before the first episode but at the time of publishing, TONIGHT is the first episode led by Kat’s character Liz. You’ll hear more about it in the episode and should absolutely tune in tonight (and all Wednesdays) at 8:40pm!+ See show notes here+ Announcements on Insta at @spoonful_of_sarah+ Subscribe to not miss out on the next instalment of YAY!
