Katharine Isabelle

Canadian actress Katharine Isabelle got her start in film and television acting when she was only eight years old. It was during that time in the late '80s, that Isabelle began appearing in minor roles in films shot in and around Canada, including "Cold Front," "The Last Winter," and "Immediate Family." By the '90s she began guest starring on popular television shows as well, like the crime series "MacGyver," the science fiction show "The Ray Bradbury Theater," as well as a 1998 episode of "The X-Files." Isabelle's breakthrough role came in 2000 when she was cast as the lead in "Ginger Snaps," a horror movie about bloodthirsty werewolves. Horror proved to be a genre in which Isabelle prospered, and in the years to follow she appeared in several more horror movies, including 2003's "Freddy vs. Jason," 2004's "Ginger Snaps: Unleashed," and 2008's "Ogre." By the late 2000s, however, Isabelle started appearing in more dramatic shows on American television. In 2009 she guest starred on the acclaimed Showtime drama "The L Word," as well as the CBS legal drama "The Good Wife." By 2011 Isabelle returned to acting on Canadian television shows. That year she landed a recurring role as Danni on "Endgame," a crime drama about a genius chess player.
