Commander Falconer: Cate Nunn
Cate has been acting and directing in Oxford for the past 10 years. Past roles include Blanche duBois (A Streetcar Named Desire), Beatrice (Much Ado About Nothing), Goneril (King Lear), Jane Bennet (Pride & Prejudice), and Elvira (Blithe Spirit). Directing credits include Sense & Sensibility, Collaborators, Measure for Measure, Blue Stockings and Twelfth Night. This is her first sci-fi role since playing a killer Communist space-robot in a school play, and her first time trying to act using just her voice and not her face, which has been a fascinating learning curve! She’s loved taking on the prickly, harried character of Falconer and is absurdly attached to her imaginary eyepatch.
