Katie Jarvis

Katie was cast in her first film role after being discovered totally by chance by the casting director of Fish Tank, having an argument at a train station in Essex. Cast in the central role of troubled teenager
Mia, Katie rewarded the filmmakers’ leap of faith with a performance of wit, sensitivity and intensity – one that captures all of the contradictions and complexities of adolescence, and has garnered her rave reviews.

The film was screened at Cannes this year and it received an incredible reception, with all reviews picking out Katie’s amazing performance.
