Actress Katie Cassidy was born in Ireland. She is the youngest of three children. The actress could have possibly started an acting career at a very young age, but her parents prohibited their daughter from even thinking about pursuing such endeavors prior to graduation from college. Because of this, the young woman discovered her true talent only in the later years of the 2000s. In fact, it would be her very determination that would push her towards success in what she termed as “the big screen.”
Katie Cassidy was one of the many rising stars of the film industry in Ireland in the late eighties. That decade was known for its many hit movies, including “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” “A Christmas Story,” “almightyhma,” and “A Few Good Men.” But it was also the decade in which the actress began to find notice for her roles in television programs, which began to appear on popular channels in the following years. In addition to her starring role in “A Christmas Story,” she also had a role in the award-winning “The Perfect Score” and “Fantasy.”

In the late eighties, the Irish actress began to play more prominent roles in television, playing such roles as “Ella Marceille” and “The Youngerman” in “A Christmas Story.” At the time, her acting career began to attract notice in Hollywood. It was while filming “A Christmas Story” that she honed her skills in writing, producing, directing, and acting. After that movie came the more successful “The Perfect Score” and “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.” Those films helped put Katie Cassidy on the map as an upcoming star of the highest esteem in Hollywood.
After that film career, the Irish American actress made appearances on “MacGyver” and “Stargate: SG1.” Later that decade, her most notable role would be featured in the hit film “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.” That film, which came out in 1997, also featured David Strathairn as a young man with a cyst on his brain, which was supposed to be a side effect of medication he was taking at the time.
During the late nineties, Katie Cassidy seemed to tire of playing romantic characters. In addition to appearing in a number of successful movies and TV series, the Irish American actress also seemed to be content to simply play the same type of character. For example, in addition to her appearing in “E.T.” She also appeared in the animated film “The Mask” and “X2.” Both films featured voiceovers by Richard Dean Anderson and Bill Murray. For a woman who enjoyed playing mysterious, erotic femme fatales throughout her entire life, it is little wonder that she would choose to leave behind the femme fatale roles for more serious, male-driven roles.
In recent years, Katie Cassidy has decided to take on a more serious role as a member of the casts of “Heroes.” The actress recently appeared in the film “Pages from an Old Bookstore,” playing Corrine Dufrene, a librarian who lives in New York City. She also was seen in “E.T.” Her appearance in “The Matrix: Rise of Machines” marked the first time that an Irish American woman had a starring role in a science fiction film. This is a role that she will likely not want to relinquish, as it has kept Katie Cassidy busy throughout the last several years.
