Personal Description

A fresh, young, starry-eyed NYC actress, Katrina is yet un-jaded by the unmerciful New York City acting scene. She recently made her regional theatre debut in New Century Theatre's production of KONG'S NIGHT OUT as a farcical Ann Darrow. She has worked on GUIDING LIGHT and is soon to appear in her first independent film, CONFLICT OF INTEREST. A recent graduate of Smith College (Denton Snyder Acting Award), Katrina trained in classical acting at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. Other credits include Hilary Davenport in GOLDEN GIRLS, Hermione in A WINTER'S TALE, Olivia in TWELFTH NIGHT, Richard II, Lady Wishfort in THE WAY OF THE WORLD, The Fool in KING LEAR, Lily Trillium in DELICIOUS RIVERS, everywoman in FRESH AIR, The Actress in SEVENTEENTH NIGHT, and Rosencrantz in ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN. She is currently acting and directing with TheatreVision/Playtime off-off-Broadway.
