Who does Katherine Rose Morley play in The Syndicate?

Katherine plays confident Keeley in the BBC One drama.

Along with the other co-workers, Keeley is always scrabbling to get the cash together to pay off her debts.

However, her luck turns when she checks her lottery ticket and is ecstatic when the machine says she’s won some money.

But she soon discovers that she had won a whole lot more than Frank the shopkeeper told her.

The ticket has been stolen and she’s determined to track it down and receive her winnings.

She told the Notion website: “It’s a show I’m just really proud of.

“I think it’s absolutely what everybody needs right now. Just pure joyful escapism.

“It’s just really good fun and it’s got such heart and it’s full of dogs! So, I’m hoping it’ll bring a lot of joy and smiles.

“That’s what we all need right now. Just a good bit of fun.”

How did Katherine become famous?

Born in Liverpool in 1989, Katherine starred in a school play and was bitten by the acting bug.

She joined local theatre Everyman and Playhouse Youth Theatre, and then moved on to the Guildhall School Of Music and Drama in London.

Not only that, but Katherine has also studied in Beijing, China and Pisa, Italy.

She got her big break in Sky One’s Christmas drama series, Little Crackers in 2012 , and then went on to star in Channel 4’s gritty period drama The Mill a year later.

Did Katherine appear in Last Tango In Halifax?

In 2013, Katherine landed a role in Last Tango In Halifax.

The Sally Wainwright series was a huge hit and starred the likes of Sarah Lancashire, Nicola Walker and Derek Jacobi.

For five series, Katherine played Raff’s girlfriend Ellie, who we first saw heavily pregnant.

She told The Sunday Post about the show: “It was only my second or third job after drama school and to this day, sitting round the table with Sarah Lancashire and Derek Jacobi, I feel like I’ve won a competition.

“I joined the series when I was 23 or 24, so it’s taken up a lot of my life. It’s so well-loved and such an education for me.

During her stint on Last Tango In Halifax, she also appeared in Vera, Thirteen (with Jodie Comer), Call The Midwife and Moving On.
