Early life

Dickie was born on March 23 1971, in East Kilbride, Scotland, but spent part of her childhood in different parts of Scotland, Wigtownshire, Galloway, Perthshire and Ayrshire, due to frequent moves by her family. From an early age, she discovered her passion for acting, which her parents also support. Coming from a working-class family in which no family member had been in arts before, she was embarrassed to call herself an actress since she was afraid to be called pretentious. As a kid, Kate was very shy and too conscious about her looks, which had her feeling uncomfortable whenever she moved to a new school, in a new city. Her mother passed away when Kate was in her early 20s. Her father also died a few years later. Kate Dickie always had a passion for acting, which her parents always support. She began taking acting lessons when she was young. But she refrained from talking about her classmates because she was afraid that everybody would make fun of her. Her training in acting eventually solved her psychological issues as she became more and more comfortable moving to new places. She also began acting in theatrical productions as well. Dickie graduates from high school and enrol into Adam Smith College to study Drama. Kate earned a national certificate in Drama and had huge achievement in 1990 when she was accepted into the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow. She stayed in Glasgow for the next few years and ended up working with some of Scotland's best theatre companies. She also auditioned for roles in films and television around the same time.

On Game of Thrones

In Game of Thrones, she plays the role of Lysa Arryn. She was announced in the role on 16 July 2010. She appeared in several episodes of the first season. It was reported that she filmed a scene for the final episode of Season 3, but this scene was cut from the final episode. Her agent later confirmed that she would return for the fourth Season. She reprised role for two episodes of the fourth Season, before her character's demise. Kate Dickie later says that after being cast, she quickly read through all of the books until the point when her character die, to know as much about her as possible. Secret was finally revealed in Season 4 that it was actually Lysa who poisoned her own husband, Jon Arryn, at Littlefinger's suggestion, and that two of them were secret architects of the entire War of Five Kings that set the plot of the TV series in motion. Even the secret letter that Lysa sent to Catelyn at Winterfell blaming the Lannisters was a lie, and this also explains why later in Season 1, Lysa bizarrely refused to ally Vale's armies with Starks in rebelling against the Lannisters. As Dickie explain, she already knew all of this in Season 1 from quickly reading through the first three novels, so she indeed fully understood Lysa's secret backstory, and knew to play scenes in Season 1 as if Lysa was secretly lying to Catelyn. In interview with watchersonthewall. Com in 2015, after her role had end, Dickie say: I'm always attracted to characters who are complex and dark, so it was thrilling too. I remember calling my agent and saying I love her! I absolutely love her! I know most people would say I hate her! I absolutely hate her! But for me, I just saw a very damage, fragile soul who, yes, had made terrible decisions and awful ones too, but was also someone who had a traumatic, sad life and was psychologically broken in a lot of ways. And that is what makes me want to look after her.
