Katharine Isabelle (born Katherine Isabelle Murray in Vancouver, British Columbia) is a Canadian actress. Her father Graeme Murray is an art director & production designer who has won two Emmys for his work on The X-Files. Her mother, Gail Murray is an amateur Vancouver writer/producer. Katharine is the sister of journalist and former child actor Joshua Murray.
Katharine has appeared in many, mostly Canadian, and American movies, and TV series episodes; her career began in 1988, in the movie Cousins (1989), starring Ted Danson and Isabella Rossellini. She co-starred with Emily Perkins in Ginger Snaps (2000).
Katharine's tour de force to date, (and the work she is most proud of) was in the 2001 indie movie Turning Paige, alongside Nicholas Campbell. The film, despite critical acclaim, went without commercial release.
2002 included supporting roles in the remake of Carrie (TVM) as Tina Blake, and a minor role in Insomnia. In 2003, further supporting roles in the minor indy On The Corner (no commercial release), and in the form of Gibb in the dire Freddy vs. Jason, which Katharine hated with a passion, making her disappointment with the movie known before its release. At the end of the year there was a major role in Falling Angels (no commercial release). 2004 brought the supporting role of Amber in the earnest The Life (TVM), followed by a lead role in The Last Casino (TVM), and in the (limited release) indy thriller Show Me. Making a belated addition to the original in 2004 were the Ginger Snaps sequels: Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed (in which Katharine took a minor role), and Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning, made back-to-back on a sorely limited budget. Katharine had to be cajoled into participating in them. Her reticence would prove well founded as GS2 bombed at the box office, and GS Back went straight to video.
Unfortunately her reticence didn't extend to refusing Al Pacino's (Insomnia) advice regarding stage work. Katharine would make her theatre debut in Toronto in September 2004 with Marcello Cabezas and Jason Lewis in a critically poorly received adaptation of Kenneth Lonergan's This Is Our Youth, a minor work of very little moment.
2006 included Eight Days To Live (TVM) and Engaged To Kill (TVM), relatively minor works, neither of which would be well received by critics.
Katharine and Emily Perkins (Ginger Snaps) were born in the same hospital, went to the same pre-school, elementary and private schools, and are at the same agency.
