Zeta’s family came from a modest background, so it was not easy for them to manage these extra expenses. One lucky day changed their life completely to what it is today! It was in the 1980s when her parents won a whopping jackpot of £100,000 in a bingo competition which allowed them to pay for Catherine dance and ballet lessons.

 

Thereafter, Catherine participated in various stage acts and gained a local media attention where she won a title of junior star. She then joined a dance troop and took various trips to London where she auditioned roles in theatre and her journey to become an actor began.
