Kate Walsh Interview At The Monte-Carlo Television Festival
MONTE-CARLO, MONACO - We sat down with Kate Walsh at the 2009 Monte-Carlo Television Festival last week and discussed her career and her hit ABC television series "Private Practice". Kate plays the character Dr. Addison Montgomery on "Private Practice", and the series is a spin-off from the extremely successful series "Grey's Anatomy" in which she played the same character. "Private Practice" has been on air since it first premiered on the ABC network on September 26, 2007, and it was recently announced in April of this year that ABC would sign-on for a third season of the show.
At the Monte-Carlo Television Festival, Kate Walsh spoke of her great affinity towards U.S. President Barack Obama, and about how she felt it was her duty, given the state of politics at the time, to come forward and give him her support during the run-up to the Election. She gave Obama her personal endorsement throughout his campaign for the Presidency because she believed he was the right man for this time and someone who was going to make a positive difference within our world.
Since 1996, in addition to appearing on television and filming many episodes of "Grey's Anatomy" and "Private Practice" and starring in television movies, Kate Walsh has appeared in over sixteen feature films including recent movies like "Bewitched", and a to-be-released 2010 film called "Legion". About her personality - she appears very kind and genuine, yet also someone with a head on her shoulders who isn't affraid to mince words if she feels its warranted. In September 2008, she was elected as a governing board member of the Screen Actors Guild by her peers, and she is a vocal proponent of the rights of performing artists.
