CQUniversity Theatre student Katie Clarke has deferred her studies while she seeks opportunities with an agent and manager in Brisbane.
With her growing status as a karate world champion, Katie is hoping one day to become a martial arts film star, like her idol Jackie Chan.
Meantime, her CV includes the ability to take on roles as an actor, dancer, extra, model, presenter, singer, stunt performer or vocal artist.
Katie recently won gold in the under-20 division of the WKC World Karate Championships held in Lithuania, following her victory at under-18 level two years earlier.
Despite copping a cracked rib during a bout, the trip to Europe was a resounding success. You can LINK HERE to hear an interview about the competition.
Katie is also training for a national karate championships in Melbourne later this year and a world cup event in Melbourne in May next year.
Having grown up in Mackay, Katie enrolled for the Bachelor of Theatre at the Central Queensland Conservatorium of Music on Mackay Campus.
Early in her course she managed to snare a lead role in a production of Mighty Foods Versus The Pirates, performing for thousands of school kids across multiple performances.
Katie hopes to continue with her Theatre degree once she's had the chance to explore opportunities through her agency, as she has a passion for acting.
