Katharine Isabelle

A native of Vancouver, Katharine Isabelle began acting at an early age. Her big screen debut came in Joel Schumacher's critical success, Cousins, starring Ted Danson and Isabella Rossellini, as Rossellini's daughter.

Memorable guest appearances in such television series as The X-Files, DaVinci's Inquest, Smallville and Supernatural followed. American audiences began to take notice of Isabelle after her performance in the teen thriller, Disturbing Behavior, and a memorable turn opposite Al Pacino in Christopher Nolan's suspense hit, Insomnia.

However, it was be her starring role as Ginger in Ginger Snaps and its widely popular indie hit sequels that have given her cult status among genre fans. Isabelle is also a hot commodity on the independent film scene, with starring roles in such films as Falling Angels, On The Corner and Turning Paige.

In 2008, Katharine was the recipient of the Gemini Award for 'Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Supporting Role in a Dramatic Program or Mini-Series" for her role in the critically acclaimed The Englishman's Boy.

An avid competitive rider since childhood, Katharine still counts her two horses among her closest friends.
