Kaycee Moore

Kaycee Moore had only acted in live theater before starring in Killer of Sheep and Bless Their Little Hearts. In 1984 she went back home to Missouri for a few months to help her mother start up the Kansas City chapter of the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America., Moore ended up staying on, acting as Executive Director after her mother’s death in 1990. In 1991, filmmaker Julie Dash, wowed by Moore’s performance in Killer of Sheep — particularly the improvised scene in which she is yelling at the characters Smoke and Scooter on the front porch — cast Moore in her 1991 film Daughters of the Dust. After filming, Moore returned to Kansas City to continue her work fighting Sickle Cell Disease. In 1994, she shared the screen with Isaac Hayes and Martin Sheen in the Kansas City independent film Ninth Street, adapted from a play of the same name. She continues to work at the Kansas City SCDAA as a grant writer and has finished a screenplay entitled Track 14, a historical drama about the Kansas City area.

  1. Kaycee Moore’s performance in ‘Bless Their Little Hearts’ was absolutely phenomenal. That kitchen scene was fantastic. I wish she was got wider acclaim for it!
