- she has delved into her past for the BBC’s Who Do You Think You Are,

- lives in Sussex but grow up in Reading,

- when she looks at gossip magazines she often wonders "who the f*ck are those people",

- her parents were both impoverished actors,

- her great-great-grandfather came to the UK from Sweden in 1884,

- Kate thinks it “basically means I’m an immigrant”,

- her great-great-great-great-grandfather, Anders Jonsson, was jailed for stealing potatoes and honey to feed his family,
