Cat Williams is a Donegal native actor and singer based in Dublin. She graduated from TU Dublin (formally DIT) Conservatoire of Music and Drama in 2018 with a First-class honor in (BA) Drama Performance.
Since completion of her training, Cat had no hesitations in getting a jumpstart on her career in both screen and stage in the UK and Ireland.
Cat’s love for theatre led to her appearing on some of Ireland’s favourite stages including, The Peacock Theatre with The Patient Gloria (2018), Smock Alley Theatre with The Half Promised Land (2018), and The New Theatre with Animals (2020).
Following the outbreak of the pandemic and the sad temporary closure of indoor theatre spaces, Cat took to the outdoors with a devised theatre production of Alice in Wonderland (2020) at Murvagh Forest, Donegal.
Other Stage credits include: Hamlet, Cinderella, A Wonderful Life and A Terrible Beauty.
In 2019, Cat’s interest in screen grew when she began working with Kourouna Films in Wales where she played Niamh in The Midnight Court and Other Aislings – Short Film (2019). The Short was selected for the 2020 Still Voices Short Film Festival as well as the Fastnet Film Festival in Schull, Co. Cork.
Other film credits include playing GIRL in Marcus Haugh’s music video Obey (2019), Nephele in Kourouna Films’ The Wanting (2020), and Sunniva in the P.O.C trailer for The Serpent Sword (2020).
Cat is a skilled singer as well as actor, with a history in musical theatre where she encapsulated such roles as Eponine in Les Miserables (Millennium Forum, 2015) and more recently Depris in A Little Heart (Smock Alley Theatre, 2019).
Forthcoming TV credits include Melkorka in Victims of the Vikings – Documentary, due to be shown on TG4 Spring 2021.
