A NORTH-East born actress is celebrating after her first self-written feature film caught the attention of cinema lovers at film festivals around the world.

Katharine Lee McEwan’s Solitary has gained recognition at several independent film festivals since she finished work on it last year.

Last month (April), the film kicked off The London Independent Film Festival at the Genesis Cinema where it went on to win the Best UK Feature.

The actress, filmmaker and producer’s career has been based in Los Angeles since she left her hometown of Redcar in 2002 to train at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute after completing a summer programme.

“As well as acting in the film, I wrote and produced it, so I’m very proud,” she said, speaking from her Los Angeles home. “It is very gratifying when something that you make gets recognition and especially when it is in your home country.”
