Katherine comes from a family where the good and bad times of the entertainment industry are underestimated, according to Town&Country.

"I don't know how that idea could have gotten into my head any other way than from having some awareness that my dad was an actor."

In a 2016 interview, Katherine revealed that working in the blockbuster films — "Fantastic Beasts and How to Find Them" and "Alien: Covenant" — is game-changing, The Sydney Morning Herald reported.

"You always feel like you are getting away with something and it can't possibly be right, there must be some kind of mistake," she said.

The actress added, "I think on these last two, because they were such big films and they meant so much for my career, in a way I had that feeling less, because I probably would have had a nervous breakdown if I had really considered what was happening in my life."

Katherine likewise shared that she discovered her acting aspirations at a young age.

She recalled, "One of my earliest memories was when I was three, going to this full-length mirror in my parents' bathroom and saying into the mirror, 'You are going to be an actress.'"

She added, "And it's almost like it wasn't my own voice but was something that just came out of me. I don't know how that idea could have gotten into my head any other way than from having some awareness that my dad was an actor."

Katherine was born in Westminster, England, in March 1980. She studied drama at New York University's Tisch School for the Arts.
