Katharine Ross Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jan 29, 1942
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Actress Katharine Ross was trained at the San Francisco Workshop, barely completing her apprenticeship before landing leading roles on television. She made her TV debut as a spoiled teenager implicated in a fatal auto accident in Are There Any More Out There Like You?, a 1963 installment of the NBC anthology Kraft Suspense Theatre. Ross was Oscar nominated for her second film role as Dustin Hoffman's amour in [[Feature~V20431~The Graduate~thegraduate]] (1967). After successfully teaming with [[Performer~P104390~Paul Newman~paulnewman]] and [[Performer~P107758~Robert Redford~robertredford]] in [[Feature~V7672~Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid~butchcassidyandthesundancekid]], she became mired in a series of steadily worsening films. She staged a comeback as Francesca in the 1985 nighttime TV serial The Colbys. At that time, Ross was married to actor [[Performer~P21648~Sam Elliott~samelliott]]. Together, Ross and Elliot scripted and starred in an above-average Western TV movie [[Feature~V10701~Conagher~conagher]] (1991). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
