Katharine Isabelle Murray was born in Vancouver, British Columbia in 1981 to Graeme former Art Director on Movies such as the Fog (re-make) and TV series including The X Files, and Gail, an amateur writer. Katharine's brother Joshua is a former child actor turned magazine editor of American Teen Idol; since resigned.
Aged 7, Katharine persuaded her mother to allow her to audition for a role in Cousins (1988). she won the part, and acted alongside Ted Danson.
her break through performance came many years later in the Canadian horror movie Ginger Snaps, which went on to spawn both a sequel and prequel. 'Ginger Snaps Unleashed' and 'Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning'. (2003 The movies were shot back to back on a very limited budget, and as Katharine didn't want to do them, she had to be talked into doing them, and gained the concession that she could ride a horse in the final movie of the trilogy.
Following Al Pacino's advice (when appearing alongside him in Insomnia (2001), Katharine made her stage debut in "This Is Our Youth" with Marcello Cabezas and Jason Lewis in Toronto. Unfortunately the revival of the play was a critical flop and her performance was panned by the self-same critics.
2008 found Katharine once again working with her friend Emily Perkins in the straight-to-DVD 'Another Cinderella Story', and in 2009 alongside her brother Josh in his self-penned (and directed) short film 'Favourite People List'. The film was submitted for entry to all the major film festivals but was sadly refused by all.
