Katherine Grace McNamara (born November 22, 1995 in Kansas City, Missouri) is an American actress. Following a few minor roles with Disney, she became well-known for playing young Action Girl roles, notably Clary Fray on Shadowhunters, Sonya on The Maze Runner Series, and Mia Smoak on Arrow.

Tropes associated with the actress and her works:

  • Action Girl: As Sonya in The Maze Runner Series, Clary in Shadowhunters (though she starts the series as an Action Survivor), and Mia in Arrow.
  • Big Bra to Fill: Inverted. Clary of The Mortal Instruments wishes she wasn't flat-chested. Katherine however is quite well-endowed.
  • The Cast Show Off: For the TV film Contest, she provides a tie-in song called "Chatter". She also performs a song in Little Savages.
  • Dawson Casting:

    • Downplayed in The Maze Runner Series. While she was a few years older than her character, she was technically still a teenager (19 years old) and the age gap wasn't that large compared to many other teens who were played by actors in their twenties.
    • Also downplayed in Shadowhunters, thanks to Age Lift. In the pilot, Clary celebrated her 18th birthday, while Katherine was 20 at the time.
  • Dye Hard: She is naturally brunette but currently known as a blonde (though in her breakthrough role as Clary, she dyed it red).
  • Playing Against Type: Before Shadowhunters and The Maze Runner had her in Action Girl roles, she normally played the Alpha Bitch or very rarely the love interest.
  • Star-Making Role: Shadowhunters marked her transition to respectable adult roles.
