  • Quotes

    • Katie: Bryan Singer is great. He has such a unique directing method, and he's very focused. He can be a lot of fun, and he's good with kids.

    • Katie: (on stunt work in "X-2") It was an eight foot drop to the floor. I started out on my back. They had me lying flat out, totally horizontal with the floor. And then they hoisted me up so that I was just above where the ceiling would have been, but, of course, there was no ceiling. And I was attached on either side of my hips. So I'm lying on my back and they drop me. And as I come down, someone from behind me would pull on the pick on my ankle, which would sort of flip me upright. And I would just land it and get up and run. It was a lot of fun to do.

    • Katie: (on her role in "X-Men: 2") I will be playing Kitty Pryde. Its a fun role, really small. But fun.

    • Katie: (on "Stargate SG-1") The dog O'Neill gives my character at the end of the show was really, really cute. I did not want to give him back.

    • Katie: (on her character in "The Crow: Stairway to Heaven") I think I have the same kind of spunk. I'm very self-reliant, very independent and one of those kids who says I don't need anybody, but I really do.

    • Katie: (on her role in "Augusta Gone") I play Bridget, Augusta's best friend at the reform camp she gets sent to. It was a heavy and intense movie...but the atmosphere on set was brilliant and incredibly comfortable. It was a real privilege to work with the director, Tim Matheson. He really knows how to get what he wants from his actors and from his crew.

    • Katie: (on her role on "Stargate SG-1") Everyone was very kind and made me feel very special, particularly Richard Dean Anderson. He kept trying to make me laugh - and usually did. He's such a great guy. Amanda and Teryl were very sweet, they really did make me feel like part of their family and, professionally, watching them work, I learned so much from them.

    • Katie: I am dealing with it slowly but surely. I had warned all of my friends that I was not going to acknowledge it as my 20th birthday, but that I was going to repeat my 19th.

    • Katie: (about name of role) Oh my. Well, my part originally was very small. I didn't have any lines at all in the script. They just brought me out, I guess, because our director Ken Kwapis liked me in the audition, and just brought me out kind of for fun as a glorified extra. But I was playing soccer and stuff, so I was just pleased to be out there. And I didn't have a name. I was just "Bunkmate." You know, like "Girl #1" or whatever. And once Ken started putting me in more scenes and giving me a few lines here and there, he was like, "Okay, we need a name for you, because we can't just call you Bunkmate." [laughs] And so he was like, "You'll be Jo," which was another character in the book that hadn't been put into the script. So he gave me the name Jo, but we continued to call me Bunkmate just because it was so funny. So I was Bunkmate Jo, and they actually credited me that way in the film, I was happy to see.

    • Katie:I love Los Angeles. I recently did a roadtrip down there with my brother. The people are fun, the climate is amazing, I love the ocean...but no, I just love being in Canada. It's such a great place to live. The people here have such great work ethic, the attitude is fantastic. The majority of Vancouverites tend to have fairly sunny dispositions despite the amount of rain that we get! I really like it here.
