Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Katie McGrath was an actress born in Ashford, County Wicklow, Ireland. McGrath attended school at St. Andrew's College before obtaining a degree in history with a focus on Russian history from Trinity College, Dublin. Originally, McGrath aspired to work in fashion journalism, taking a job at Image magazine, before becoming a wardrobe assistant on the racy medieval drama "The Tudors" (Showtime, 2007-2010). A fellow crew member thought that she would do well with acting, so McGrath took a chance and sent her headshot out to Irish agents. Before she knew it, she was being cast in such projects as the five-part Queen Elizabeth II docudrama "The Queen" (Channel 4, 2009), the fantasy adventure series "Merlin" (BBC One, 2008-2012), and Madonna's controversial Wallis Simpson biopic "W.E."
