Kerry Armstrong is a well respected Actress and Patron of The MindShift Foundation.

Born in Melbourne, Kerry landed her first television role at just 15 in the series Marion before appearing in The Sullivans and Bruce Beresford's AFI award-winning feature film The Getting of Wisdom. Her big break was being cast as Lynne Walker in the initial 44 episodes of Prisoner.

Kerry moved to New York in the early 1980s to study at the Herbert Berghof School and where she developed a successful stage and television career, appearing in the long-running daytime soap, One Life to Live, as well as Dynasty and Murder, She Wrote. Kerry also joined a core of group actors in LA (including Tim Robbins, Helen Hunt and John Cusack) to form The Actors' Gang, an experimental theatre company that continues to tour the world with adaptations of the classics more than 30 years later.

Kerry returned to Melbourne and has established herself as one of the most successful actresses of her generation, including two AFI Awards (for her performance in the much-loved ABC drama series Sea Change and for her leading role in the feature Lantana. In doing so, she became the first actress in Australian history to win the Best Performance by an Actress award in both the feature film and television categories in the same year) and a further three nominations.

Kerry Armstrong also places a great deal of importance on her charitable work and has worked with Childwise, Big hART and the Cure For Life Foundation. Her self-help book The Circles is described as a practical exercise in empowering people.
