Who is Katie Findlay?

Katie Findlay was born on 28 August 1990, in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, and is an actress, best known for her work in the television series “The Killing” in which she played the character, Rosie Larsen. Other notable shows she’s been a part of include “The Carrie Diaries” and “How to Get Away with Murder”.

The Net Worth of Katie Findlay

As of early-2020, Katie Findlay has a net worth estimated to be over $1 million, earned through a successful career in acting spanning just a decade.

She’s worked on numerous television projects, and several feature films during her career.

Early Life and Career Beginnings

Katie grew up in Windsor, and at a young age developed a love for ballet. She trained and performed as a ballerina for over a decade until a back injury forced her to quit the art. She was also experiencing a lot of concern over the damage her feet were getting due to consistent strenuous training.

In 2010 she ventured into acting, and did several Canadian television show pilots before landing her first guest role in the series “Fringe”.

During the same year, she had a guest role in “Psych” and was then cast in her first recurring role the following year. The show which would help raise her popularity was “The Killing” which she was a part of for a year. The show is based on the Danish series “Forbrydelsen”, and follows the story of homicide detectives and their investigations on murder cases. The show ran for four seasons, though she was only a part of it during its inaugural season as a murder victim.

The role helped her gain a few more projects, including a two-episode role in the show “Stargate Universe”.

Continued Acting Work and Recognition

In 2013 Findlay worked on the film “After the Dark”, playing the character Bonnie, the science-fiction film featuring her alongside Sophie Lowe and Rhys Wakefield. During the same year, she appeared as Maggie Landers, a main role in the series “The Carrie Diaries” – the show aired on The CW, and is a prequel to “Sex and the City”. It is an adaptation of the book of the same name written by Candace Bushnell, following the story of Carrie Bradshaw during her junior year in high school.

The show aired for two seasons before cancellation. Following that, she gained even more fame as she was given another main role in the show “How to Get Away with Murder”. The show which aired on ABC follows the story of a law professor and five students as they become involved in a murder plot, and stars of the show include Viola Davis, Alfred Enoch, and Jack Falahee. The show has gained a lot of critical acclaim for the performance of its actors, with Davis becoming the first black woman to win the Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.

Findlay was demoted to a guest role for the second season, and then left the show afterward.

Recent Projects

Katie then returned to feature films, gaining a role in “Premature”, a comedy film starring her alongside John Karna and Craig Roberts, which follows the story of a high school student stuck in a time loop which always ends with him ejaculating prematurely. Afterward, she portrayed Mary “Stormer” Phillips in the film “Jem and The Holograms”, a musical film starring Aubrey Peeples and Stefanie Scott.

It is inspired by the animated series “Jem” but the film effort did not prove fruitful at the box office, bombing with only $2 million takings on a $5 million budget. She then returned to television, working for three episodes of “The Magicians”. In 2017, she was cast as one of the main characters in the third season of “Man Seeking Woman”, airing on FXX and following the story of a man who finds himself in unusual circumstances on his quest for love.

The third was the last of the show which was inspired by the short stories called “The Last  Girlfriend on Earth” written by Simon Rich – it was canceled despite positive reviews. She’s since been cast as the recurring character Lisbeth in “Nancy Drew”.

Personal Life

It is known that Findlay is single, and that she prefers to keep this aspect of her life away from the media. She has a mix of Scottish, English, Chinese, and Portuguese ancestry.

She is very close to her fraternal twin, and the two often go on adventures together. She loves to play video games in her free time with her brother, and the two also travel together.

During her free time, she supports several charitable organizations. She does a lot of local events with Canadian actors to benefit charities and other institutions.
