The charming Australian actress is happily married to Hamish Michael. Like herself, her husband is also into the acting field and is an Australian actor known for his works like "Janet King" and "Crownies."

Almost five years into their marriage, no rumors of conflicts and disputes has touched their relationship. We hope they keep sharing the same love between them in the future.

Kate's First Partner Committed Suicide
Kate might be living a wonderful life with Hamish, but he is not her first love. The 41-year-old was previously in a longtime relationship with a late Australian actor Mark Priestley. Both of them were still in intimacy, and everything seemed to be going well for them.
It was somewhere in late 2007 when the actor began suffering from depression and mental problems. To regain his old self and make himself better, he went through great lengths and expenses, but it did not work out.
On the afternoon of August 27, 2008, Priestley checked into the Swissotel Hotel in Market Street, Sydney, under a name Damien Barker. At around 2 pm, he jumped from the window of the hotel and committed suicide. The police later found his body lying in an awning.
The death of her partner, Kate, "suffered a breakdown of sorts."
The female writer stated:
"Burying your boyfriend at the age of 30 is not something you expect."
Through an interview, Kate later revealed that only a month before the incident, she pleaded with the hospital authorities not to let Mark leave the hospital.
Due to incorrect media reports and news, there is also a major misconception among people that the break up between Kate and the Changi star led him to commit it. The actress revealed it was debilitating dealing with the false media reports.
Mark's funeral was held at Perth's Holy Family Catholic Church in Como, Sydney, on September 04, 2008. It was a sad end and a great loss of a talented actor. It is good to see Kate has moved on from that incident and regained her happiness.
