What's more, according to Variety, Kate was cast by Sia via Instagram, after the singer saw an Instagram post of the star singing.

In the film, Kate rocks a very different look, having shaved her hair for the part of Zu. The movie was made back in 2018 and at the time, the actress caused a sensation after stepping out with a shaved buzzcut.
