This young lady’s full name is Katherine Grace McNamara, but she is usually just credited as Katherine McNamara. Her friends and family tend to call her Kat, Kitty, or even Kittykat.. When she was younger, people sometimes called her Genius, but she’s just really not a fan of it.
Kat is a Winterchild - she was born on the 22.11.1995 and is therefore only a few months away from the big 25. In her 24 years she has achieved a lot more than others her age and she is proud of it. Fun fact: She also shares her birthday with actress Scarlett Johansson, who also plays one of the most famous redheads in movie history!
WE'RE NOT IN KANSAS ANYMORE
She was born in Kansas City, Missouri, and, unlike most Military Brats, didn’t travel around the world, living in different Military Bases, but grew up in Lee’s Sumit, Missouri. In 2011, a year after she graduated from High School, she moved to Los Angeles. She has had her current house for about 3 years now and is currently busy renovating it, especially her kitchen, which is her favourite part.
"My name is not little girl!" is probably one of Katherine’s favourite sentences she ever got to say as an Actress. She started her acting career on the stage in Kansas City, and has since then been on Broadway, worked on different movies and tv shows, and even wrote and produced some songs. Her most famous roles are Clary Fray in the Shadowhunters TV Series and Mia Smoak in the DC-Verse series Arrow. When she isn’t busy working, she spends time on her education - Kat finished high school at 14 and graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Drexel University at age 17. In 2015 she was studying for a Master of Science degree in Applied Economics from Johns Hopkins University, and then in 2017, she enrolled in an online master's degree literature program, also at Johns Hopkins University.
Kat doesn’t talk about her lovelife. Ever. No matter how hard her fans and the media are trying to link her to different men, or even women, in the instance of Dove Cameron. The truth is that she’s single and hasn’t had a boyfriend since 2016 when she broke up with Pierson Fode. Fans have since then tried to link her to costars, like Dominic Sherwood, Will Tudor, or even Luke Baines, but Kat only sees them as friends. So the world will have to continue on guessing if the Redhead is actually seeing someone or not.
TWO CAN KEEP A SECRET
Well, well, well, if it isn’t the consequences of her own actions. During a rather euphoric night at the People's Choice Awards Afterparty in 2018, Kat drank a bit more than a well behaved girl should and obviously had to pay the price. When she woke up the next morning, she was in a Hotelroom that wasn’t hers, in a bed next to no other than her former Costar Matthew Daddario. The actress can’t remember what happened, how she got there or what terrible mistake led her to lie in bed next to a married man, but a very foggy memory of her and Matt kissing keeps popping up in her head. The actor doesn’t seem to remember anything, and Kat doesn’t really know what to do with all the guilt she feels.
