Che Walkers odyssean journey reminds us, in a world of 'alternative facts', that we have been here before...
Devin McGregor Ketko (Maxine) is a classically trained Stella Adler alum hailing from Dallas, Texas. She boasts an abundance of theatrical credits and brings to each character a fierce physicality and deep-rooted respect for character and script analysis. This year, she debuted the character of "Rose" at the world premiere of "COMFORT" by Jesse Pimentel at the New York Summerfest. Her most recent leading role in the film THUNDERS about the life and death of famed Johnny Thunders of the New York Dolls is slated for worldwide distribution in 2019.
Devin's obsession with character and quest for sociological understanding are thoroughly searched in Che Walker's "WOLF CUB".
