Katie Appreciation Thread #2: "The woman I am is shy and awkward and wants to stay in her bedroom and cuddle her dog and drink tea and read books"



K A T I E M C G R A T H
[January 03, 1983; Actress]


B I O G R A P H Y
Katie McGrath is an Irish actress. In television, she is best known for portraying Morgana on the BBC One series
Merlin (2008-2012), Lucy Westenra on the British-American series Dracula (2013-2014), Sarah Bennett in the first
season of the Canadian horror anthology series Slasher (2016) and for her role as Lena Luthor on the American
superhero series Supergirl (2016). Her film roles include Lady Thelma Furness in the drama film W.E. (2011), Jules
Daley in the Christmas movie A Princess for Christmas (2011), Zara in the science fiction adventure film Jurassic
World
(2015) and Elsa in the epic fantasy film King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017).

McGrath was raised in Ashford, County Wicklow, Ireland, by Paul, who works with computers, and Mary, who works
for an Irish designer. She has two older brothers, Sean, an online media manager, and Rory, who is a post-production
producer. She studied the International Baccalaureate at St. Andrew's College before graduating from Trinity College,
Dublin with a degree in history with a focus in Russian history.

Katie did not intend to make a career for herself in the acting profession, studying History at Trinity College, Dublin.
Upon graduating, she became interested in fashion journalism and worked for lifestyle and fashion magazine, Image.
After this, her mother's best friend, an assistant director, helped get her a job as a wardrobe assistant on the series
The Tudors (2007). Whilst working on the production some of the staff suggested she tried acting. A cast driver on the
series passed her a list with the actors' agents on it, so she wrote and sent photos to them.

Success followed with McGrath made her debut in the TV film Damage (2007). She also won a small role in the
aforementioned The Tudors (2007).

Q U O T E S
“I am really terrible when it comes to guys. Inside I just see myself as this overweight tomboy with funny-coloured hair and bad skin. I was really
big until I left college and I started to lose all the weight. I don’t know how big I was exactly. Let’s just say when I stopped fitting into
a size 14, I stopped counting. Because of that I always saw myself as ‘the friend’ rather than the one that guys wanted to talk to.
I was very awkward and guys were always just my mates.” x

One of my best friends has a daughter who’s eight, and I really wanted to do something where she could watch it and it could be good for her.
I wanted to do something that is good for a young teenage girl and that I could be proud of. I wanted to say, “This is going to be good
for you. You will see strong, capable, wonderful, intelligent, smart women, to show you that everybody can be
a million different things and still be a hero.”

"Working crew made me realize that the actors are a very small part of a very big machine, with each part being vital to make the show work.
It so important to remember that it's not about you, it's about the show, and working crew hammered that point home to me."

"I play women I wish I was, not the woman I am. The woman I am is shy and awkward and wants to stay in her bedroom and
cuddle her dog and drink tea and read books and never leave because the outside world is scary."

"I loved every minute of working in wardrobe. But I love being an actress so much more. I don't think I was very good in costume,
so it's better that I prefer being an actress."

"I used to say, ‘After Merlin I’m never going to work again. I’m going to give it all up and make cupcakes for a living.
I’m going to be crazy cupcake lady."

"I grew up in a small town in Ireland and didn't know any actors. I never thought it was a viable job.
It wasn't until I was on 'The Tudors' that I realised it was a possibility."

“I wasn't born an actress, but I was certainly born dramatic!”
