Katherine Waterston Age & Family

Katherine Waterston was born on March 3, 1980, in England. Coming from a family of artists, she is the daughter of American actor Sam Waterston. Quite naturally, she turned to an acting career and studied at the Tisch School of the Arts in New York.

She inherits thanks to her model mother and her father’s taste for Hollywood glitter. This is none other than Sam Waterston, an actor known to the general public for his role in New York Police Judiciaire, and rewarded throughout his career with a Golden Globe for best actor, an Oscar nomination as well as several Emmy Award. Suffice to say that her children have something to look after, and Katherine will not be the only one to follow suit: her sister Elizabeth and her brother James also become actors.

However, no special treatment for this “daughter of”, Katherine also goes through theater school, and she studies acting in New York. While starting a promising career on the boards, she appeared in the political thriller Michael Clayton in 2007. The same year, she won the first role of Babysitters, where she played an uneventful teenager who set up a disguised prostitution ring behind babysitting.

From then on, projects became more important, like Inherent Vice (2014) where she shared the bill with Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, and Owen Wilson. She then plays Chrisann Brennan, one of Steve Jobs’ girlfriends, in the eponymous biopic released in 2015.
