Toronto – August 9, 2013Actress Kate Drummond stars as lead female Anna Grímsdóttir, better known as Grim, in the highly anticipated Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist, available Tuesday, August 20, 2013 on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Nintendo WiiU and PC.
Starting in 2002, Splinter Cell has grown to become a series of award-winning action-adventure stealth video games based off novels by Tom Clancy.

Recently, Kate was honoured to endorse Gamers for Sandy Hook, a campaign raising money for the Sandy Hook PTA to help them rebuild their community. As a former teacher and member of the video game industry, this initiative was close to Kate’s heart. Kate created a video addressing the tragedy and asked for financial support for those affected. In response, a Splinter Cell fan was so touched by her video, he donated $500 to the cause.
