Having informed me that she’s in “Transformers: Dark Of The Moon”, I get a tingle of excitement having Canadian TV/Movie actress KATHLEEN GATI on this blog. In a fun and crazy role as a Russian bar owner/bartender, it’s a given that Transformers fanboys will be looking out for her as they so often do, dissecting every piece of morsel related to the upcoming Summer Popcorn Blockbuster. Well-known in Eastern/Central Europe, audiences have been in awe of her many emotionally-charged onscreen displays for quite some time. She’s currently gracing the 33rd Moscow International Film Festival where her movie “Visszatérés” aka “Retrace” is making its premiere on June 26th. It’s a bittersweet story set in Romania during Ceausescu’s grim regime that has KATHLEEN’s character revisiting her homeland only to discover tragic events. In addition to being a multiple award winning actress, KATHLEEN is multi-lingual and has the magical European allure thanks to her Hungarian roots. Best remembered as the First Lady of Russia Anya Suvarov who has Jack Bauer as an ally on “24″, she’s also been impressing in a slew of hit shows including “The Mentalist”, “NCIS” and “Covert Affairs”. When she first started out in the biz, this was what she noted: “I played a few hookers in my day, because I was always a little ‘voluptuous’” referring to her small part in the cultish “Frankenhooker”. I came across her photo with Tim Roth whom she worked with on an episode of “Lie To Me” and she’s every bit an Über Striking beauty.
KATHLEEN is on the throbbing pulse of entertainment and with those sultry blue eyes of hers, everyone should be in awe of her. Head on over to the KATHLEEN GATI OFFCIAL SITE for a glance at the stellar career and life of this consummate thespian. While she’s often a Bodacious Blonde, KATHLEEN went jet black for the recent indie “The Future” that premiered at the LA Film Fest 2011. Check her out as Dr Straus, the vet dispensing sage advice to Miranda July (playing Sophie) about her adopted cat in the trailer (above). The Sundance fave “Little Birds” sees her part of the fantastic female powerhouse cast of Leslie Mann,Juno Temple and Kay Panabaker. She continues to be influential in a plethora of mediums including Broadway, along the way accumulating a body of work that’s as mesmerizing as she is…:)
