Kate was on Popcorn With Peter Travers this week to promote Megan Leavey! Before the interview even began, Peter stated that this is the performance of Kate’s career, to which she hilariously replied “This is actually the perfect review, I will leave”. Kate explains that many aspects of the script attacted her to the project, like the fact that the story was about a female in the military, which is specially rare. The beginning of Megan’s journey sounded relatable to her, seeing as “she didn’t really know what to do with her life. […] Everyone can relate to that”. She describes Megan, her character, as a “kind of weak human who finds her voice, and finds her strength through joining the Marine Corp and also through finding that she’s really quite gifted at dog handling and forming this bond with this incredible canine Marine”. The video is about 20 minutes long, so they talk a lot more about the film. In my humble opinion, it is definitely worth the watch.
Kate recently sat down with UPROXX and took part on their 20 questions questionnaire series, naming the best concert she’s ever attended, her first celebrity crush, the most frequently played song on her cellphone and more. Read them all below.
