Katy Parrott 

Filmaker/Medic

Katy is a Wildlife & Expedition Filmmaker based in Bristol, UK. She read Biology and went on to complete a MA in Wildlife Filmmaking.

In May 2016, she was part of the first team to trek the length of the Bulgarian Rhodope Mountains, traversing over 400km of wilderness with 30kg of kit each. She gets no bigger kick out of life than when pushing her limits. Out of 1000’s of applicants she was selected as a ‘recruit’ for the BBC2 series Special Forces: Ultimate Hell Week (series 2) – which aired Jan - March '17.

At 5’3’’ and a former Deputy Head Girl, Katy is an unlikely ‘action woman’, but her success in the series inspired her to join the Army Reserves. She is now a fully trained soldier and is about to embark on her front-line Combat Medic training for an infantry unit, making her a real life ‘Our Girl’.
