Born Katherine Isobel Murray on November 2, 1981 in Vancouver, British Columbia. She is a Canadian actress and is considered one of the modern "scream queens" after appearing in movies such as the Ginger Snaps trilogy, Bones (with Snoop Dogg), American Mary, and Freddy vs. Jason and TV shows like Goosebumps, The X-Files, Supernatural, and Hannibal. She also played a supporting role in Christopher Nolan's Insomnia.
Her friends and family call her "Katie".
Tropes associated with her works:
- Deadpan Snarker: Many of her characters feature an acerbic wit, most notably the ever-sarcastic Vera Stone.
- Fake American: In American Mary.
- Old Shame: She disliked Freddy vs. Jason. She also had a rocky relationship with Director Ronny Yu. Katherine wanted to play the lead character, but Ronny thought she would be better as the best friend Gibb. However, Ronny didn't tell Katherine that there would be a nude scene. Katherine was very adamant about not doing nudity which caused tension between them.
