Kate brings it home for those wanting a crack

The Newcastle Herald

18 July 2005

WHILE Kate Ritchie has never herself experienced being a "struggling actor", she does know how tough the business is.

The 26-year-old has played Sally Fletcher on Home and Away since she was eight years old.

"Within the industry, there's not work for a lot of the talent out there," she said.

"There's a lot of talented people out there with something to offer that don't get the chance. I've had a lucky run, I have been employed for all this time."

In a bid to help fellow actors looking at cracking the industry, Kate has thrown her full support into star search Crack the Big Time.

Crack the Big Time gives people aged from five years and up the chance to audition in acting, modelling or singing categories.

All entrants are judged by professionals within each industry, with Ms Ritchie and fellow cast member Ray Meagher (Alf Stewart) among the judges for the acting component.

All entrance fees will go directly to the Mayumarri Healing Centre in the Hunter Valley, which helps survivors of childhood trauma.

"It's a great opportunity and especially if you want to put yourself out there," Ms Ritchie said.

"Any chance you get, grab it with both hands . . . you will be doing it for a good cause as well as helping your career."

For more information about how to enter Crack the Big Time go to www.crackthebigtime.com.au where you can download an entry form.

Entry forms are also available from any branch of the Greater Building Society, Charlestown Square, with entries closing August 10.
