Biography:

Katherine Heigl was born November 24, 1978, in Washington D.C. and raised in New Canaan, Connecticut, with her two older brothers and older sister. Her experience with fame started with her early modeling career. When the Wilhelmina modeling agency saw pictures of  Katherine it was not long before she was working her first modeling job. She appeared in magazine advertisements, and made her television introduction with a small part in a Cheerios television commercial. Modeling was her path to acting. By the age of twelve, she was hired for a small part in the 1992 movie, "That Night", which marked her feature film debut.

After a part in Steven Soderbergh's "King of the Hill",
Heigl was cast as Gerard Depardieu's daughter in the 1994 French adventure film, "My Father, the Hero". Her role as the gorgeous young teen enduring her father's harsh rules was a good opportunity for her to be seen by audiences in a leading role. Trying out an action-thriller movie, Katherine was cast in the movie "Under Siege 2: Dark Territory", as Steven Seagal's niece. 


Once she relocated to Los Angeles, Heigl starred in various independent movies such as "Prince Valiant" and the Disney feature, "Wish Upon a Star". After a role in the 1998 horror thriller "Bride of Chucky", the last film in the Chucky ax-murderer series, and the movie "Bug Buster", she starred next to Peter Fonda in the television film "The Tempest".

Katherine became a regular on the 1999 short lived alien drama "Roswell", an alien series where living among the citizens of the infamous New Mexico city of Roswell are four who are not there by choice. Heigl auditioned for all three of the female lead roles before being hired for the part of Isabel, the character she portrays in the show. During time off while working on "Roswell", she took the opportunity to work on two films, with roles in "100 Girls" and "Valentine" with Denise Richards.

In the spring of 2001,
Katherine made a guest appearance in NBC's television movie, "Ground Zero", but the release was held by the network for two years because of the 9/11 tragedy - it was eventually aired in late 2003. Also in 2005, she was cast next to Johnny Knoxville in "The Ringer", a Farrelly brothers comedy. Then she was hired as Isabella Linton in the MTV rework of Emily Bront's memorable story "Wuthering Heights".

Katherine Heigl's major smash hit has come in the form of the television hospital comedy series "Grey's Anatomy" where she can be seen weekly as Dr. Isobel Stevens working next to the super Doctor himself - Patrick Dempsey as Dr. Derek Shepherd. With all the first-rate reviews and huge following the series has commanded, we know for a fact that her Hollywood star is already bright and on the rise.


One of Heigl's big hits was the Judd Apatow comedy "Knocked Up" (2007) where for fun loving party animal Ben Stone, the last thing he ever expected was for his one night stand to show up on his doorstep eight weeks later to tell him she's pregnant. Then Katherine was cast in the romantic comedy "27 Dresses" (2008) where after serving as a bridesmaid 27 times, a young woman wrestles with the idea of standing by her sister's side as her sibling marries the man she's secretly in love with. 

Katherine Heigl wrapped her year starring with Gerard Butler in the romantic comedy "The Ugly Truth" (2009) about a romantically challenged morning show producer who is reluctantly embroiled in a series of outrageous situations.
