Kathleen Robertson started out wanting to be a dancer and at first took dance lessons. That’s when she started to think that she just might want to be an actor. She started taking acting classes when she was ten and had roles in local theater productions. Her early career brought a few movie roles, but later, as a teenager, Robertson went through a period where she was extremely self-conscious and didn’t like the attention her career had brought. But all of that changed and she matured and now she can’t think of doing anything else. She is probably best known for her role as Clare Arnold in Beverly Hills, 90210. She played the role of Hildy Mulligan in 32 episodes of the series Murder in the First. A five-time Canadian Screen Award nominee for Best Actress, Robertson’s first nomination came for her starring role in Torso, playing notorious Canadian murderer Evelyn Dick in the grizzly 1946 true story. Next came her nomination as a struggling single mom who undergoes a “falling down”-style mental and physical breakdown in Last Exit; and most recently for her portrayal of Colleen Howe, controversial wife to hockey legend Gordie Howe and the first female agent in sports history, in Mr. Hockey. Robertson received a Leo Award for that performance.
