Katherine Waterston is a British actress who was born on March 3, 1980. She’s had a luscious film career, appearing in Michael Clayton, The Babysitters, Being Flynn, Night Moves and Inherent Vice.
Katherine’s mom is a model and her dad is Sam Waterston, an Oscar nominated actor. Her brother is a director, Graham Waterson, and her sister, Elisabeth Waterson, is an actress as well. Even her half brother, James Waterson, is an actor! SMH. None of these kids wanted to do something different? There’s virtually no way all of them are genuinely talented.
KW doesn’t have a mirror above her bathroom sink, which makes for better mornings, she says. That’s insane. She also doesn’t watch movie trailers and does not like critiquing films with the media because she doesn’t want to impart her opinion onto others.
Moving on, the rising star takes acting pretty seriously. She’s earned a BFA in Acting from NYU! She began acting in plays in 2007 and continued to grace stages for years.
Waterson is on her way to becoming a household name, and fast. She will play Steve Jobs’ first wife in the upcoming biopic, “Steve Jobs.” Sidenote: How insane is it that another movie is being made about Steve Jobs, but this Steve film will actually probably be pretty amazing. How embarrassing for Ashton Kutcher!
Critics are enamored with Katherine’s performance in the upcoming film, Inherent Vice. According to The Huffington Post, “Her grace, focus, and composure on screen are something many major film critics have pointed out. But what we also saw live & in person was someone that was clearly genuine, humble, and incredibly committed to her craft.”
