We were casting the pilot for What Would Trejo Do? and we had a big problem. We had looked at a hundred famous and not-so- famous actresses looking for someone who could co-star opposite action star Danny Trejo. But, the shoot was looming and no seemed right. The character had to convey sweetness, yet be tough and do drama and comedy with equal dexterity. Literally, I was ready to call the shoot off. And then, Katie Wallack walked through the door. At once she conveyed a loopy comedic vibe with great timing ala a young Goldie Hahn but at the same time she could go deep and instantly become serious in a Julianna Moore manner. She was totally facile at switching between funny, sexy, powerful and confused on a very tight schedule that allowed little rehearsal.

My work with Katie on Restitution was inspiring, to say the least. I have never worked with a more professional, committed, detail-oriented actress in my life. To me, Katie's process seems to be rooted in the character's motives which, in return, leads to very strong choices. As a director, her choices and input makes her extremely helpful to the creative process. Add the fact that she speaks with such a succinct, clear voice and can keep up the emotion take after take makes her a dream for directors. I look forward to working with her again!
