Mini Bio (1)
While in NYC, Kitty was asked by numerous directors to act in films, and she declined most offers citing music as her main interest, but when Richard Hell, with whom Kitty was singing back-ups on recordings like "Don't Die" by Richard Hell and the Voidoids as the Neon Boys, asked Kitty to read for the part of Marcie in Susan Seidelman's "Smithereens", explaining that Susan had already read over 250 girls for the part, Kitty accepted, read, and was hired on the spot to play the wife of Richard Hell's character. She agreed to act so that she could provide the music for "Smithereens". After Kitty's acting was so well-received, and "Smithereens" was chosen as the very first Independent Film to be honored at the Main Competition of the Cannes Film Festival as well as in many other world film festivals, Kitty became known first as an actress, although her music continues to be her main inspiration and career.
Kitty Summerall's iconic "High Times Magazine" cover was issued between covers of Mick Jagger and of Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Acting in two more films, "Special Effects" and "Perfect StrangersP (and in other more independents, not listed here), Kitty Summerall began to focus again on travel and music, lived on several continents and explored many types of music. Kitty will be performing in New York in the coming months, and her new music will be available soon.
