Trivia and Quotes

Quotes (10)

  • Katherine: My best friend growing up really put the bug in my ear about acting. We created this one hour-and-a-half improv play when we were 10 or 11 and performed it at the library. We just played off each other so well and had the best time doing it and the funniest part was, we wound up having packed houses, other people loved it too. So I thought, maybe I can graduate from the library and actually do this for a living. I couldn't imagine anything else that I would enjoy more.

  • Katherine: My biggest challenge is trust, and really believing that trust, in letting things just happen personally and professionally and trust with myself. But I'm getting better at it.

  • (On her favorite feature) Katherine: I like my hands. Nice long fingers. Strong. They serve me well.

  • (On the roles she chooses as an actress) Katherine: I like stories that are not normal, everyday lives. I don’t personally seek them out, but they find me.

  • Katherine: What I find very attractive, what I find sexual, are people who are unapologetic for who they are and comfortable with themselves. And I think with those two things sexual energy does come out because you're not hovering or censoring yourself, you're just being who you are. And being who you are is a very attractive quality in a person.

  • What Kate likes about her character Shane from The L Word: Katherine: I liked the way my character, Shane, was first introduced. You get introduced to her through this sexual action, and I thought that was so cool and just kind of summed up what she enjoys and who she is, to a certain extent. She's a complete sexual being and the great thing is that she doesn't apologize for it. It's just who she is. We rarely see women be able to do that on television.

  • Katherine: I think my comparison with Shane would be a loner. I always got the impression that she wasn't scared to be alone. She enjoys it. I can relate to that.

  • Katherine: Stage is about imperfections and working with them, whether it be from you or the audience.
