NEXT ON CASTLE



6x20 "That 70's Show" - April 21, 2014
When construction workers find the body of an infamous New York mobster who disappeared in the seventies, Beckett and Castle try to solve this three decade-old Mafia hit. Unfortunately, their only witness is a man who thinks it’s still the 1970’s, so to uncover what he knows, they must play into his delusion, and party like it’s the last days of disco.

Biography

Back Forward Home

Stana Katic was born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada to a Serbian father and Croatian mother, who both immigrated from Croatia. Her father is from Vrlika, and her mother is from the surrounding area of Sinj. Katic later moved with her family to Aurora, Illinois. She spent the following years moving back and forth between Canada and the United States. After graduating from West Aurora High School in 1996, she studied acting at Chicago’s Goodman School of Drama. She has four brothers and one sister.

An articulate polyglot film actress, Stana perhaps best speaks to the inevitable lure of brains and beauty combined. Whether in film, on television or in new digital media, this busy yet down-to-earth actress, who happens to have a passion for archery, also has the skill to hit a bull’s eye in every role she takes on.

Stana currently stars in Castle, playing intense NYPD Detective Kate Beckett who becomes the muse for crime thriller novelist Richard Castle. Katic also recently landed a role in the feature film CBGB, which will offer an inside look at New York City’s famed punk rock nightclub of the same name. She will play Genya Ravan, a music producer and former lead singer of the 1960s rock band Goldie & the Gingerbreads, and will star alongside Alan Rickman, Rupert Grint and Joel David Moore. Katic’s feature film work includes the upcoming film Big Sur, about writer Jack Kerouac’s life after he wrote On the Road. In the film, she portrays real-life legend Lenore Kandel — a San Francisco poet who played a pivotal role in the cultural revolution of the late 1960s. Katic was seen in last year’s Polish Brothers’ film, For Lovers Only, shot in Paris and in the spirit of French New Wave. Also in 2011, she was seen in The Double, playing Amber, a prostitute who leads Richard Gere deep into the Machiavellian world of Washington politics. Other feature credits include roles opposite such major stars as Daniel Craig (Quantum of Solace), Morgan Freeman and Greg Kinnear (Feast of Love), and Samuel L. Jackson and Eva Mendez (The Spirit).

Beyond brains and beauty, Katic also has brawn, being a natural athlete who plays multiple sports and often performs her own stunts. In addition, she sings; producers used her alto-mezzo soprano voice for the sultry theme song in the movie of the week, The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice, in which Katic also starred.

In 2010, in an effort to create a greater sense of community in Los Angeles and “to make Los Angeles its better self,” Katic started the campaign The Alternative Travel Project (www.alternativetravelproject.com), which encourages everyone, everywhere – but especially in car-centric Los Angeles – to go car-free for just one day. The campaign was so successful it started a movement with people from across the globe writing, tweeting and blogging about it. She hopes someday to see all studios in LA linked by public transportation and cycling routes, and connected to LAX and Burbank airports.

Katic’s commitment to her craft has caught the attention of industry A-listers and earned her the respect of her peers. Her goal is to fashion memorable characters so compelling that audiences lose themselves in the story for a transcendent moment that will reverberate long after the movie’s end.

Katic currently resides in Los Angeles, speaks five languages and holds dual citizenship in the United States and Canada.
