Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Katie: I went to New York for Fashion Week and girls showed up waiting to see me. It's funny because there's a group of girls who I actually recognize because they always show up. It's nice and I'm like, 'Hi girls! I recognize your faces!' It's just like a feel-good experience.

    • Katie: I was a freshman and auditioned for the school play. Freshmen usually never got cast. I was the first freshman to be actually given a legitimate part and it was that feeling of 'Wow! I broke the system!'

    • Katie: I try to keep myself in what I'm doing and focused on character stuff, as opposed to getting wrapped up in worrying or being nervous. It won't benefit me, in any way, to focus on that.

    • Katie: I ended up meeting my manager because my sister was a receptionist at a management company. My manager is actually my same manager that I have today. That's how it started. I worked my way.

    • Katie: When I was younger, playing piano and guitar were all things that I wanted to do for a short period of time, like any kid.

    • Katie: There is definitely something that has to be said for me liking the action, Lara Croft type stuff. I really want to explore that side of me.

    • Katie: My hair's been every color. My hair's been all over the map.

    • Katie: It's nice when your dad can be your friend.

    • Katie: I wanted to make a name for myself.

    • Katie: I try mainly to just focus on character and what my character's point of view is, with each person, and try to figure out story.

    • Katie: I loved being on stage. I was in elementary school when I started, so I couldn't say that it was about the building of characters.

    • Katie: Greg Berlanti, David Nutter, Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim are the people I wanted to work with. They're smart, they're funny, they're cool, they're edgy.

    • Katie: I love heels... whoever created heels is amazing!

    • Katie: Attending ComicCon for 'Arrow' was so much fun! Seeing the fans excited gets me excited and feels really good.

    • Katie: My style during the day is very casual - boyfriend jeans, T-shirts, Converse, Uggs, whatever. At night, I love heels and thigh-highs, I like something fresh and new, and I'm not afraid to push the envelope.

    • Katie: I was in theater when I was in elementary, middle school and high school. I didn't know it would be an actual profession for me. I didn't think of it as a reality.

    • Katie: I'd like to think I'm actually a nice person in real life.

    • Katie: To me, giving back is so important. It makes others feel good which then in return makes me feel good.

    • Katie: (About what she looks in a boyfriend) I have to be with someone with a good personality and a good sens of humor! I like to laugh a lot! It is really cool when someone is different than everyone else!

    • Katie: Every year my grandma would take me to Disneyland. It was a special time for just the two of us and no one else. I think I was about 3 when I first went and continued until I was maybe 12. It was our day and I especially remember the "Electric Parade". It was so much fun and my grandma has always been very special in my life.

    • Katie: I like A&F also…..My favorite jeans are Rock and Republic but I used to wear a lot of Frankie B. I like surf stores like Vals Surf and board clothes too.

    • Katie: (About her most memorable moment while filming Supernatural) In the second episode, I'm at a diner and I put ketchup on my plate. I'm supposed to put a big load of ketchup on my plate. So, I'm squeezing the bottle and on about our third take...I think someone had unscrewed the top to play a joke on me because all of a sudden ketchup flies all over me and all over plate! I had just started on the show and everyone was laughing. It kind of broke the ice for me to make me feel more welcome on the set. It as kind of embarrassing, but it was fun.

    • Katie: I've done thrillers and I've done a horror movie and definitely want to do an action movie, more than anything.

    • Katie: (on whether coming from a family of actors is an advantage or a disadvantage) At the end of the day I still have to go in there and audition like everybody else. They're not going to hire you if you suck.

    • Katie: (on working with the cast of Supernatural) It's been really great! They're really talented actors and such sweet boys. They really make you feel welcome and they are goofballs. It's been really fun! I've had a great time.

    • Katie: I don't like people who are fake.

    • Katie: (on her favorite thriller) I really like Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the old ones and the new ones.

    • Katie: I used to baby-sit but never by myself. I always brought a friend with me, one of my girlfriends, and we'd baby-sit together. Because it was scary. It freaked me out to be in the house like that, watching the kids.
