Kathryn Susan Morris (born January 28, 1969) is an American actress, best known for her lead role as Detective Lilly Rush in the CBS series Cold Case.

Career[edit]

Morris’s first role was a minor one in the 1991 tele-movie Long Road Home. Several other small parts followed, including a bit part as a psychiatric patient in the Oscar-winning As Good as It Gets. Her breakthrough role came as Lt. Annalisa “Stinger” Lindstrom in the television series Pensacola: Wings of Gold in 1997 for two seasons.[2] Morris continued to work in films (notably ones directed by Rod Lurie) and had a brief stint on the Xena series in 1999 as Najara.

After seeing her in the film, The Contender (which DreamWorks distributed), Steven Spielberg cast her in two successive films. Her scenes as a rock star in A.I.: Artificial Intelligence, which required Morris to take intensive singing and guitar lessons were cut by the director, which was particularly agonizing for her. In Minority Report, she portrayed the tormented wife of Tom Cruise‘s character.[3][4]

In 2003, Morris won the lead role of detective Lilly Rush in the CBS dramatic series Cold Case. She also appeared in the 2004 films Mindhunters and Paycheck, opposite Ben Affleck, and more recently as the journalist wife of Josh Hartnett in Lurie’s drama Resurrecting the Champ (2007). Morris appeared in the film Cougars, Inc. which was distributed in 2011. In 2012, Morris landed the starring role in The Sweeter Side of Life, a romantic comedy, as Desiree Harper. The 90-minute film premiered on the Hallmark Channel on January 19, 2013.[5][6]

Personal life[edit]

Morris was born in Cincinnati, Ohio.[4][7] She grew up in Windsor Locks, Connecticut with her parents, Stanley, a Bible scholar, and Joyce, an insurance agent,[8] and five siblings before moving away. From age 6 to 17, Morris and her family traveled the southern ‘Bible Belt‘ as a gospel group called ‘The Morris Code’. The group was mainly made up of Kathryn’s father and three (out of five) of her siblings.[4]

She attended two colleges in the Philadelphia area, Northeastern Christian College and Temple University. After studying theatre in high school, she was involved in a hit-and-run collision while on her way to her first acting gig, a Japanese music video based on the musical Grease. She still made it to the gig and that’s when she knew she was going to be an actor.[8]

At one point in 2002, she was engaged to financial advisor Randy Hamilton.[8]

On April 8, 2013, Morris announced that she and her partner Johnny Messner were expecting twins. She gave birth to twin boys, Jameson and Rocco,[9] on August 21, 2013.[10]

She is known for her roles as Kaitlin Cooper in the Fox teen drama The O.C., Agnes Andrews in The CW series Gossip Girl, Aqua in Kingdom Hearts, and Thea Queen in Arrow.

Early life[edit]

Holland was born in Los Angeles,[1] to cinematographer Keith Holland and actress Darnell Gregorio-De Palma. Her mother was remarried to director Brian De Palma from 1995–97.[2] She grew up with two sisters: Brianna Holland (b. 1988)[citation needed] and Piper De Palma (b. 1996).[citation needed] Holland attended Palisades Charter High School for only six weeks because her career was taking off and school peers were dismissive of her acting pursuits.[3]

Career[edit]

At age seven,[4] Holland played at her stepfather’s neighbor’s house in The Hamptons, New York. The neighbor, Steven Spielberg, was filming home videos and told Holland’s parents, “You’ve got to put her in front of a camera.”[5][6][7] Upon returning to Los Angeles that September, Holland signed with Ford Modeling Agency at age seven,[7][8] and immediately booked a shoot for Burberry.[8]

The following year, 1999, De Palma took Holland to a theatrical talent agency.[7] Since then she has appeared in many national commercials. During 2001 when Holland was ten, she worked alongside her cinematographer father in Ordinary Madness. She was even slated to co-star in the 2005 Fox series The Inside with fellow model Rachel Nichols, but left the show when writer Tim Minear was brought in to overhaul it. She played the role of Kaitlin Cooper on The O.C.;[7] initially as a recurring character in season 3, but then as a regular in season four.[9]

In December 2007, Holland was cast in the independent drama film Garden Party, playing the role of April, a troubled teenage aspiring model who tries to make it in Los Angeles. In September 2008, The CW announced Holland would appear in three episodes of the second season of the teen-drama television series Gossip Girl, created by The O.C. creator Josh Schwartz. Holland played the role of a rebellious 16-year-old model[7] who befriends and creates havoc for Taylor Momsen‘s character. In March 2010 Holland made a one-off return in the 16th episode of the third season, “The Empire Strikes Jack,” which aired March 29, 2010.

In May 2010, Square Enix announced she would be voicing Aqua in the PlayStation Portable title, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, which was released on September 7, 2010 in North America.[10] That same year Holland starred in her first major studio film in the apocalyptic thriller film Legion playing the role of a bratty teenager.[11] She played teen-temptress Janice Heddon in the film Straw Dogs, a remake of the 1971 film of the same name. The film opened in September 2011.

In February 2012, Holland was cast in The CW action-adventure series Arrow, which is based on the Green Arrow comic books, where she plays Thea Queen, the sister of Oliver Queen.[7][12][13]

In the film Tiger Eyes released in April 2012, Holland starred as Davey Wexler.[7][14] The film was based on the 1981 novel of the same name written by Judy Blume.[7][14][15]
