Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

For years, actress Katherine LaNasa was primarily known as actor Dennis Hopper's wife. She met the legendary actor and former Hollywood wild man in 1987 at a diner reception in Los Angeles when she was a professional dancer with the Karole Armitage Ballet company. Two years later, LaNasa and Hopper were married. In 1990, LaNasa appeared in Hopper's film "Backtrack," starring Hopper and Jodie Foster. LaNasa and Hopper divorced in 1992, but by then she was appearing in a number of television shows and movies, although nothing substantial. Probably her most notable guest spot was in a 1995 episode of the popular sitcom "Seinfeld" (NBC, 1989-1998). She continued to rack up jobs, but it was not until the next decade when LaNasa landed her biggest role to date, starring as Bess on the short-lived sitcom "Three Sisters" (NBC, 2001-02). Through the decade, LaNasa's television work blossomed with more prominent guest spots, including parts on "Judging Amy" (CBS, 1999-2005), "Big Love" (HBO, 2006-2011) and playing alcoholic Sophia Bowers on "Deception" (NBC, 2013- ). One of her biggest feature film roles came in 2012, when she played Will Ferrell's wife in the political satire "The Campaign." ...
