More about the low profile socialite Kate Mara


Here is some more about Kate Mara's acting career:

Since her 1997 television debut, Kate Mara has managed to appear in almost two dozen films and television shows. The actress, who was raised in Bedford, New York, kicked off her acting career at an exceedingly early age when she starred in one play after another at a variety of theater camps and after-school programs. Kate made her professional debut at the age of 13 in an episode of Law and Order, and followed that up in 1999 with small but pivotal roles in Random Hearts (opposite Harrison Ford) and Joe the King (opposite Ethan Hawke).

Appearances in several sitcoms and one-hour dramas followed -- including Ed, Nip/Tuck and Everwood. But it wasn’t until Kate landed a key role alongside fellow newcomer Aaron Stanford in Tadpole (2002) that both viewers and critics sat up and took notice of the up-and-coming actress. Kate cemented her star status with her electrifying turn on the fifth season of the hit Fox show 24 as analyst Shari Rothenberg (affectionately dubbed “New Edgar” by fans of the series). At the top of this hard-working actress’ pile of credentials is three high-profile films: Zoom (2006), with Tim Allen, We Are… Marshall (2006), with Matthew McConaughey and The Shooter (2007), with Mark Wahlberg.

She graduated from Fox Lane High School early by a year and went on to guest star on numerous television series, including Madigan Men, Ed, and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
