Kate Walsh Talks Kentucky Derby, ‘Private Practice’ Finale, And New Movie

Kate Walsh is a busy lady these days! She attended the Kentucky Derby, has a season finale coming soon, and a movie deal in the works!  Walsh, clad in a Max Mara dress paired with a belt and pumps by Sportmax, hosted a suite for Mott’s Garden Blend at the 137th Kentucky Derby yesterday.  An enthusiastic Walsh said,

“It’s such a massive American tradition and I’m excited to get to participate in it. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do.”

Walsh is ecstatically awaiting the season finale of her hit show, Private Practice, which is set to air sometime in May on ABC. She plays the role of the spunky doctor, Addison Montgomery.

Walsh explained,

“I feel like this is our strongest season yet. This show just keeps getting better and better. The last new episodes for the season are just so strong – and very dramatic, crazy – there’s a lot in store. So I’m really excited about them.”

In movie news, Walsh was pretty tight lipped when discussing her upcoming movie deal. However, she mentioned that the film is a “coming of age story” adaptation derived from a well known novel. Hummm….
