Added DiffLines:

* ActorSharedBackground: In the series ''Strangers'', her character's mother worked in Hong Kong for years. Katie's mother likewise was a Hong Kong businesswoman before moving to the UK (although in-universe, the father has never been, and Katie's was likewise a Hong Kong native).


Added DiffLines:

* CareerResurrection: Katie took a break from acting after ''Film/HarryPotter'' wrapped, and went to college for a few years. She then returned with the miniseries ''Run'' and ''One Child'' - receiving critical acclaim and being named a Breakthrough Brit of 2014 by BAFTA.

Added DiffLines:

* AbilityOverAppearance: Cho is implied to be English in the books (her favourite Quidditch team is a Tutshill one, which is in Gloucestershire) and the audio books give her that accent. In the films Katie uses her natural Scottish accent. She actually said that at the audition, the casting director asked if any girls were from Scotland, and she was the only one.
* TheCastShowOff: She demonstrates that she can switch between English and Mandarin in ''One Child''.


Added DiffLines:

* FakeBrit: She uses an English accent in ''Strangers''.
* FakeNationality: Technically. She's second-generation Chinese, having been born in the UK, but has played many Chinese characters.
* IAmNotSpock: She is still known as Cho Chang to a lot of people. But she has won acclaim for her other roles, so time will tell.
* TomHanksSyndrome: Distanced herself from ''Harry Potter'' by starring in the gritty miniseries ''Run'' - where she plays an illegal immigrant who has to pay debts to a smuggling ring. There's also her role in ''One Child'' - about a murder investigation.
* WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings: Jealous fan girls attacked her for kissing Daniel Radcliffe on screen - even creating 'I Hate Katie' websites. Likewise photoshopped nude photos were created, terrifying her. As a result, she quit acting for a few years.


* OneOfUs: Fan of ''Film/KickAss'', Russian constructivist art, and photography.
