Graduating from The Actors Conservatory in 2010, Kylie has since played a range of interesting roles; everything from a goddess in an August Strindberg play to a crazy Aussie in a Norwegian feature film.
Kylie’s first international feature film, Juleblod, is set to be released in Norwegian cinemas, November 2017. She was fortunate enough to play an Australian in this Norwegian horror directed by Reinert Kiil, complete with eating Vegemite and burping at inappropriate moments. She is supporting some Norwegian acting royalty, including Jørgen Langhelle and Stig Henrik Hoff. Look them up – they are cool cats!
Her base training (Advanced Diploma Stage & Screen) was completed in Brisbane, Australia in 2010 and since then has been lucky to train extensively with acting coaches, Peter Rasmussen and Christopher Sommers, to hone her on screen skills.
She is actively involved in collaborative theatre and has obtained excellent reviews for Anywhere Theatre Festival , Short&Sweet Festival, La Boite Theatre Company, and Brisbane Powerhouse.
Other than acting, Kylie is a medical scientist, a trained journalist and her work has been published everywhere from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) to theatre reviews for AussieTheatre.com.
She is proudly represented by SASS Management.
“Great accents, amusing poses, and demanding leading lady.” – Creative Futures, 2016
“The stand-out was definitely Stephenson. She committed completely to both of her roles, both the actor and the movie character. Her portrayal of them showed the clearest distinction between the two, and she made a great effort as Marilyn to keep the character alive and interacting with the audience.” – Sasha Barclay, Anywhere Theatre Festival, 2016
“Even before I called ‘action’, I knew that she was an extremely talented, passionate and professional actor. Her performance was amazing, she adapted to direction quickly and also made her own choices with the role, which raised the character off of the page and turned them in to a living, breathing person.” – Nick Kelly, IBeaFilmDude – 2015
