Kathleen Robertson was born in Hamilton, Ontario, and launched her career in nearby Toronto, in the George Lucas-produced Maniac Mansion (1990) and continues to work with prolific producers. She transitioned from David E. Kelleys acclaimed Girls Club (2002) into Farhad Safinias Golden Globe-winning Starz political drama Boss (2011) with Kelsey Grammer, followed by the lead role in Steven Bochcos TNT drama Murder in the First (2014), opposite Taye Diggs, Bates Motel (2013), and The Vatican Tapes (2015) with Michael Peña. Also in development is the series Your Time Is Up -- about a wildly successful, yet deeply troubled, psychologist -- for which she will write, produce, and potentially star as the lead. This marks Robertsons second produced script within a year, coming on the heels of the indie feature Gravity Pulls, in which she stars and co-wrote. Robertson headlined IFCs Gemini Award-winning mockumentary-style comedy series The Business, for which she also serves double duty as Executive Producer. The six-hour mini-series take on The Wizard of Oz called Tin Man, in which she starred as the wicked sorceress sister to Zooey Deschanel, recently garnered the highest ratings in the SyFy networks history, along with multiple Emmy nominations. She most recently starred in the Weinstein Companys Seal Team Six, from the producers of the Best Picture Oscar-winning The Hurt Locker (2008), which follows the hunt for Osama bin Laden. No stranger to the big screen, she starred alongside Academy Award-winners Ben Affleck and Adrien Brody in the dramatic thriller Hollywoodland (2006), a dramatic speculation on the mysterious death of George Reeves, the 1950s TV Superman. Robertson starred opposite Mark Ruffalo in IFC Films sexual drama XX/XY (2002) that was in dramatic competition at the Sundance Film Festival. In direct contrast, she also starred for Keenen Ivory Wayans in the sequel to Dimension Films blockbuster Scary Movie (2000). Previously, Robertson collaborated with writer/director Gregg Araki on the films Splendor in which she starred as Veronica, a girl caught in the middle of a love triangle, and Nowhere, in which she portrayed the overbearing, purple-haired lesbian Lucifer.
