Kate Mara Introduction
Chances are you remember her face, but not her name, as Kate Mara has appeared in dozens of TV shows and movies, including Fox's 24 and the Academy Award winning Brokeback Mountain (2005) (Anne Hathaway, Michelle Williams).
Kate Mara Life Story
Mara's career started early, after she watched a musical in New York. She was bitten by the acting bug, and her mom sought an agent for the then 14-year-old Mara. After loosing out on a part for Homicide: Life on the Streets, Mara found limited success on shows like Law and Order and Everwood. She also appeared in four episodes of Nip/Tuck (Kelly Carlson) in 2003. A few years, and guest appearances on various TV shows later, Mara landed a small, but pivotal role in Ang Lee's Brokeback Mountain, playing Heath Ledger's grown daughter Alma Jr. This helped her get a recurring role on 24, playing one the hottest computer analysts ever.
She has since been seen in We Are Marshall (2006) and the Mark Wahlberg thriller Shooter (2007). She will next be seen in movie The Open Road (2008). She also starred in the movie Zoom alongside Tim Allen.
For sports fans, it's interesting to know that Mara's great-grandfather on her father's side founded the N.Y. Giants, and her family still owns the team to this day. Growing up, she would frequently sing the national anthem before home games. Her great-grandfather on her mother's side, founded the Pittsburg Steelers. So who does Mara cheer for? "I can't answer that," she said.
