Los Angeles, CA
Ever since she was a child growing up in a rural South Jersey suburb of Philadelphia, Katrina Law had more energy than she knew what to do with. Her mother (being the brilliant mother that she is) recognized this at an early age and enrolled Katrina in a variety of activities ranging from dance and gym classes to karate lessons, soccer practice and voice coaching. She also spent her time cheerleading, participating in track and field, piano (which didn't work out in anyone's favor), trumpet (which only worked out in Katrina's favor) and roller skating. You name the activity and Katrina's mother probably had her try it at least once.
The only conditions her mother set forth were that Katrina had to practice every day at whatever it was she was learning and that she had to make the honor roll with every report card. Katrina kept up with her side of the bargain and when she graduated high school her yearbook was filled with photos of her on the Varsity Track team, Varsity Soccer Team, Varsity Cheerleading Squad and even the Varsity Weightlifting Team. She was also a member of The National Honors Society.
This eccentric collection of interests and activities, combined with her exotic physical appearance usually means that the first question people as her is, "What are you?"
What she is, to answer their question, is a typical small town American Girl. Her parents met during the Vietnam War; her father being a Catholic of German and Italian decent serving in the U.S. armed forces and her mother a Buddhist living in Taiwan, working as a bartender. This combination of cultures, learning to live in harmony under one roof taught Katrina tolerance, patience, understanding, and humor as a child and still guides her to this day.
Katrina attended The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey where she was a Marine Biology major for a year and half, but after getting cast as Cassie in The Chorus Line for Summer Stock Theatre, she immediately went back to school and changed her major to Theatre Arts with the full support of her parents. Her mother's exact quote was, "Thank goodness! I spend so much money on dance and singing and then you go to college for science?!"
Her acting education continued after college in the big cities of Philadelphia and New York. There she not only deepened her understanding of acting as an art form, but she also sharpened her teeth on the business of acting. In New York City she earned her S.A.G. eligibility on the set of Numbers with Nora Ephron and John Travolta and finally joined S.A.G. when she booked a Guest Star on NY's "The Third Watch".
Katrina now lives as a working actress in Los Angeles with her giant white cat, Spencer. She enjoys the many outdoor activities that Southern California offers, from surfing to mountain climbing to snowboarding. It seems that she finally found a city that can keep up with her.
