The 40-year-old actress plays a journalist in the movie surrounding the true-life case of Amanda Knox, a student who was convicted of the murder of Meredith Kercher several years ago.
“The script was not what I was expecting. Playing a bright woman is always a relief. I try to change tack often between big splashy action movies and smaller independent films,” Kate told The Telegraph. “You won’t see characters called Amanda Knox and Meredith Kercher. It’s certainly not a judgement of innocence or guilt – it’s more about the people who created the media circus surrounding the case.”
