I’m so excited about this role, says Katie, and I can’t wait for people to see my work. My character is cool and tough and a total badass. What I love most about Rebecca Sutter is that she’s not your average damsel in distress!
I graduated from NYU with a degree in Acting. I also studied at the Stella Adler Conservatory of Acting and at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London.
My first professional audition was for a national commercial. My first professional acting job was on an episode of Law & Order, followed by a recurring role on The Good Wife. In 2010, I made my Broadway debut as Helen in Spamalot and later starred as Roxie Hart in Chicago on Broadway. It has been amazing to see my career grow exponentially since then.
