Katie Boland

Actor, Author

Chosen by Elle Canada as one of the top three Canadians to watch and by the Toronto International Film Festival as one of their inaugural “Rising Stars” in 2011, actor and writer Katie Boland divides her time between Los Angeles and Toronto. Acting professionally since the age of nine with over 45 roles to date, Boland’s credits include Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master, Atom Egoyan’s Adoration, Daydream Nation and Terminal City as well as four recent films: Ferocious, Looking is the Original Sin, Sex After Kids and Gerontophilia. Boland’s literary debut, a collection of short stories entitled Eat Your Heart Out, was released by Canadian publisher Brindle & Glass on April 2, 2013. Boland is also currently featured in the hit CW and CTV2 period drama Reign as Clarissa, a strange young woman who hides in the shadows, and whose past is a tantalizing puzzle that will reach out to change the lives around her in ways no one suspects. Boland recently co-created, co-produced, wrote and starred in edgy web series Long Story, Short, available now on KoldCast TV, and launching February 15, 2014 on Hulu.
