Katherine is a regular guest included in your convention ticket. You will be able to buy additional photos/autos and meet and greets. Announcements will be forthcoming.
When Katherine was little, dreams for her future were split between being a star basketball player in the WNBA and “the voice of the Disney characters”. A proud Canadian, Katherine is an actor, producer and most recently a director. She studied at the prestigious George Brown Classical Theatre School and fell in love with the intricacy of film acting soon after graduation. She has a strong love for comedy performance and studied improvisation at the famous Groundlings Comedy School in California.
She has numerous television credits to her name in both in Canada and the USA. Most known for her role as Officer Nicole Haught in The SyFy Network's 'Wynonna Earp'. She has additionally appeared as sorority dictator, Jacqueline Gill, in 'The Scarehouse', starred alongside Bollywood superstar Jacqueline Fernandez in the psychological thriller 'Definition of Fear' and recently completed filming on feature film, 'Girls Night Out', starring alongside Mackenzie Mauzy ('Into The Woods', 'Bold and the Beautiful'). In the fall, she joined the cast of CBC's new half hour comedy, 'Working Moms', helmed by showrunner Catherine Reitman.
Although acting continues to be her focus and first love, Katherine’s newest endeavour is directing, finding it the perfect marriage between her acting roots and business brain. Katherine had produced 7 short films. Most notably her comedy short, 'Issues', was named one of the top three Canadian short films of 2013 by Television critic Richard Crouse. Through her production company, Kit Media, she developed 'Issues' into a television show that was optioned by Edyson Entertainment. She has two projects currently in post-production, 'Cannonball' and 'Dissecting Gwen', the latter of which she is currently adapting into a half hour comedy for television.
