Kathleen Robertson Facts

  1. She was a child star in Canada before she shifted to Hollywood.
  2. She began taking acting classes at the age of 10 and had roles in local theatre productions.
  3. Kathleen has recalled that she loved to write from the time she was a child, her interest covering everything from articles for journals and short stories to scripts, and that writing always used to be her outlet whenever she would feel antsy, emotional, ecstatic, or unhappy. When she turned 20 years old, she began to worry that a backup might be required for her acting career in the future and chose writing to be her alternative option.
  4. Kathleen has stated that she has been lucky to have a very good experience of getting older in Hollywood that has been far from the usual idea that acting roles dry up for women as they age. She has pointed out that some of the best roles of her career have come her way later in her life such as her landing the role of Kitty O’Neill in the political drama TV serial Boss (2011–2012) when she was 38 years old. She went on to appear as the police officer in the crime drama television series Murder in the First (2014–2016) after attaining the age of 40 due to her ability to essay strong, resilient women, leading her to realize that she would not have got such opportunities to play the incredible roles if she was in her 20s.
