I have worked in the Australian professional performing arts industry as an actor, director, and occasional playwright since 1972. In this capacity, I continue to use my stage name Kate Wilson – which also happens to be my family birth-name.
I have also been an educator for most of my career and use my married name Kate Foy as an academic. I do this to honour the support and encouragement given to me by my late husband, Murray Foy during the time I was engaged in study and research for my PhD. I could not have completed this work without his love and encouragement. He died before I completed my dissertation but, when it was done, I dedicated it to him and used my married name as author and in my capacity as an Associate Professor and arts advocate.
In 2020, the Actors Benevolent Fund (Queensland) presented me with the Alan Edwards Lifetime Achievement Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Performing Arts in Queensland.
