Biography

Katherine Evelyn Cassidy was born in Los Angeles, California on November 25th, 1986 to former model Sherry Williams and singer David Cassidy. She did not do any professional acting until after graduating high school, though she did performed in local theater, and participated in many other extracurricular activities as well. Growing up, her hobbies included playing piano and guitar, singing, dancing, cheerleading and gymnastics.

In 2002, Katie recorded her father's 70s hit, "I Think I Love You," while being filmed for VH1's TV documentary, Bubblegum Babylon. On the show, David Cassidy publicly criticized the 15 year old's decision, saying that he was disappointed that she didn't wait until later in her career to record his classic song.

By 2004, Katie had moved on to modeling, working with names like Abercrombie and Fitch and Guess, and then was cast as Zoe on the television series 7th Heaven in 2005. Several movie credits followed, including Click (2006), Black Christmas (2006), and Taken (2008). Katie spent a year working on the CW TV series Supernatural (2007) before taking on the roles of Trish Wellington on Harper's Island and Ella Simms in the remake of Melrose Place in 2009.

Quotes

  • "At the end of the day, it doesn't matter who your parents are. Sure, it does help you get into a room, but at the end of the day, you have to be able to deliver and you have to be talented because they're not going to hire me because my dad is David Cassidy, who was famous in the 70's. I have to go into those rooms and give it my best and work really hard."
  • "In the second episode [of Supernatural], I'm at a diner and I put ketchup on my plate. I'm supposed to put a big load of ketchup on my plate. So, I'm squeezing the bottle and on about our third take... I think someone had unscrewed the top to play a joke on me because all of a sudden ketchup flies all over me and all over plate! I had just started on the show and everyone was laughing. It kind of broke the ice for me to make me feel more welcome on the set. It was kind of embarrassing, but it was fun."
