Kat Graham zal 3 juni een nieuwe album uitbrengen in samenwerking met Glaad genaamt ‘Long Hot Summer’. Hierbij zal ze ook op tournee gaan en op 3 augustus optreden in Amsterdam.

Partnering with GLAAD, Kat Graham announces new album, LONG HOT SUMMER, out June 3rd, with a global PRIDE Tour to follow.

After experimenting with a variety of musical genres, from 2017’s disco-tinged Love Music Funk Magic to the experimental NFT album Toro Gato, Kat is going back to her roots with LONG HOT SUMMER. Before joining the hit television series, The Vampire Diaries, Kat got her start in LGBTQ+ nightclubs in West Hollywood, performing self-produced dance-pop records. With sweeping pop synths over aggressive 80’s beats and co-produced with Jean-Yves “Jeeve” Ducornet, Kat is ready to give the community that first embraced her a dance-pop album focusing on liberation, self-exploration, and acceptance.

“Going back to dance pop has always been an era that I started but never finished,” says Kat. “Especially in partnership with GLAAD, I am beyond excited to celebrate the LGBTQ Community and bring awareness to this incredible organization. We are going to bring the house down!”

As a member of GLAAD’s Atlanta chapter and a longtime supporter, Kat will kick off a world tour in June to help raise money for the organization.

Volgens de laatste berichten zou Kat tijdens haar afgelopen vakantie in Mexico ten huwelijk zijn gevraagd, zelf heeft ze er op social media nog niets over los gelaten.

Kat Graham (32), vooral bekend van haar rol als Bonnie Bennett in The Vampire Diaries, is verloofd. De actrice gaat trouwen met regisseur Darren Genet (35).

“Vreselijk verliefd”
Darren Genet deed het aanzoek volgens People tijdens hun vakantie in Mexico. Daar waren ze vanwege zijn verjaardag. Graham is ‘vreselijk verliefd en kan haar geluk niet op’, zou een bron aan het Amerikaanse tijdschrift hebben verteld.

Het stel begon in 2017 met daten. Hoewel Darren Genet ook als regisseur betrokken is geweest bij een aantal afleveringen van The Vampire Diaries, is dit niet de plek waar het stel elkaar heeft ontmoet, schrijft People. Wel zou dit op ‘een set’ gebeurd zijn.

Ryan Phillippe (Crash, Flags of Our Fathers), Kat Graham (Cut Throat City, How It Ends) and Jim Gaffigan (American Dreamer, Troop Zero) will topline Collide, a thriller from Vertical Entertainment, TPC and Robert Ogden Barnum, which recently wrapped production.

The film written and directed by Mukunda Michael Dewil (Retribution, Vehicle 19) is billed as is an edge-of-your-seat, noirish thriller where three interlocking stories hurl towards an explosive end. It follows an ensemble of characters whose paths intersect over the course of a single evening inside an L.A. restaurant.

David Cade (Lansky), Dylan Flashner (The Card Counter), Drea de Matteo (The Sopranos), Aisha Dee (The Bold Type), David James Elliot (Heart of Champions), and Paul Ben-Victor (Daredevil) round out Collide‘s cast. Barnum and Lucas Jarach produced the film, with Daniel Baur, Luke Daniels, David Gendron, Russell Geyser, Rich Goldberg, Peter Jarowey, Ali Jazayeri, Joel Michaely, Rick Sasner, Greg Thompson and Viviana Zarragoitia exec producing. Vertical plans to release it later this year.

Demi Moore & Margaret Qualley To Star In Universal/Working Title’s ‘The Substance’; ‘Revenge’ Helmer Coralie Fargeat Directs Her Script
Collide is the second film to be fully financed by Vertical and TPC following Spencer Squire’s Abandoned. Barnum also produced that horror pic, which will likewise be released later this year. In addition to Collide, the longstanding relationship between Vertical and Barnum has produced the theatrical and digitally-released films Body Brokers, Lansky, Drunk Parents and The Neighbor.

“As an ensemble piece, I knew even if I did everything else right on Collide it was only really going to work if I got that right cast. So, I’m really grateful to my producer Rob Barnum and Neely Eisenstein, our casting director, for helping me get the actors I needed for this,” said Mukunda. “It’s such a strong cast and they’ve been able to really bring these complex and compelling characters to life.”

“Collide is our second foray in this endeavor with Rob and TPC and we are incredibly proud of the progress of our partnerships thus far in creating a streamlined process for fully financing projects,” said Vertical Entertainment Partner Peter Jarowey. “With this now being Vertical’s sixth collaboration with Rob, we trust his eye for storytelling and know that between the film’s gripping script and phenomenal cast, it will shine on screen. We look forward to continuing to build upon our financial model with TPC and for others to see its potential for success.”

“Given the shift in the indie film landscape over the years, TPC has adapted to focus more of our time forming meaningful partnerships with experienced producers looking for a one stop shop solution,” added TPC President David Gendron. “We manage the financials so that filmmakers like Mukunda can devote their time to honing their craft, perfecting their films and bringing them to the big screen.”

Dewil is represented by UTA; Phillippe by Gersh, MGMT Entertainment and Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern; Graham by 3 Arts Entertainment, WME and attorney Roger Goff; and Gaffigan by UTA, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Schreck Rose Dapello.

Kat is gecast in de nieuwe Netflix film ‘Love In The Villa’, deze zal ergens in 2022 wereldwijd te zien zijn op de streammingsdienst. De opnames beginnen volgende maand in het italiaanse Verona.

The Umbrella Academy star Tom Hopper and Kat Graham are set to star in Netflix’s Love in the Villa. Mark Steven Johnson will write and direct, with Margret Huddleston and Stephanie Slack producing through their Off Camera Entertainment banner. Johnson will also produce.

The film follows a young woman who takes a trip to romantic Verona, Italy, after a breakup, only to find that the villa she reserved was double-booked, and she’ll have to share her vacation with a cynical (and very good-looking) British man. Production will start this month in Verona and the film will premiere globally on the streamer in 2022.

“Now, more than ever, people need some love and laughter in their lives. Everyone seems so divided these days. But in the end everyone wants the same thing — to love and to be loved,” Johnson said. “That’s what movies like Love in the Villa are about.”

Hopper recently finished shooting Season 3 of The Umbrella Academy reprising his role as Luther. On the film side, he was recently seen opposite Ryan Reynolds in The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard and also has Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City bowing later this year. He is repped by Management 360, Gersh, Waring and McKenna and Jackoway Austen .

Graham’s past credits include Operation Christmas Drop, Cut Throat City and All Eyez on Me. She is repped by APA and 3 Arts Entertainment.

Kat heeft een interview gehad met Daily Pop over haar nieuwe identiteit Toro Gato, bekijk het interview hier.

Kat Graham is gone—meet Toro Gato.

The former Vampire Diaries star debuted her true identity during E! News’ Daily Pop on Aug. 31.

“I think that we as entertainers have this identity that we have to give to the public and be presentable, and I think sometimes we forget our core and our truth,” Toro Gato exclusively explained today. “As our artist, I want to explore that with this Toro Gato project and this entire NFT collection. I wanted to kind of dismantle my former identity.”

The “SWIM” singer continued, “I actually bury myself in one of these films. So this is a new version. They say it’s the alter ego but I actually think the more and more time I spend in this space, I think Kat is the alter ego and I am becoming the West African, the ruler, the monster, that’s not scared of anything that can show up without shoes on. I think that’s really fun, and a terrifying place to be.”

Toro Gato embraced her tribal ancestors and collected different garments that “represent who I am as a woman and where my ancestors are from.”

Gato noted, “In this Western, vey American-ized world, I think that sometimes it can look like a spectacle, but you will see that it’s not actually a costume,” she opened up. “What we’re wearing is a costume.”

And don’t expect there to be anything unnatural about Toro Gato. “I don’t think Toro Gato wears wigs,” she joked. “I just wanted to annihilate this idea that we needed to be a certain way to be accepted, that we need validation, and I hope that people can see that and find their own monster or creative outlet.”

The name Toro Gato shows the duality between the two egos, according to the artist formerly known as Graham.

“Toro Gato shows the light and the dark sides, so you know when you get really really angry and you’re scared of that monster and you don’t want to let that side out? Like, this is that version of that,” she said. “Gato is maybe the peaceful side, and both sides can exist. It’s showcasing the subconscious mind and the conscious mind.”

Toro Gato concluded, “I think with everything we’ve all experienced with COVID and quarantine and finding our truth, that is just kind of birthed it. I’ve been working on this since 2016 and I didn’t want to come out like this. I think a lot of it was the pandemic, a lot of it was looking at young Black girls crying after watching me celebrate my ‘fro and seeing that there is something really cool in truth.”

Watch the full interview above to meet Toro Gato ahead of her live presentation of “SWIM” on Sept. 8 to celebrate both her birthday and her “death day.”

“SWIM” is available now and the upcoming visual EP, TORO GATO: PART I will drop Sept. 10 and be available as an NFT exclusively through YellowHeart.

Kat heeft haar nieuwe single ‘Swim’ vandaag uitgebracht onder de naam Toro Gato.

“Toro Gato: Part I” is the debut visual and music album by Toro Gato (Kat Graham). From the live string quartets paired with the haunting and fearless raw visuals, Toro Gato plants a flag in this new unchartered territory. Some of the original music production by Kat Graham was created over a decade ago for friend David Blaine’s specials. *You must use a desktop to purchase and redeem these assets.

Toro Gato, which translates to “Bull Cat” in Spanish, was chosen by Graham and Darren Genet to show both the light and dark parts of the subconscious and conscious mind, as well as the recognition of one’s shadow self. Genet, who directed all of the films, was crucial to the evolution and creation of Toro Gato.
