Kathryn Gallagher, 29, was born on July 23, 1993, to her parents, Peter and Paula, in New York City. She’s the second child born into the Gallagher family, and has an impressive resume. Not only is she a Tony-nominated actress, but she’s also a Grammy-winning singer! In 2020, Kathryn was nominated for a Tony award for Best Featured Actress in a Musical in recognition of her performance in the Broadway musical Jagged Little Pill. The musical kept her busy for eight days a week until the abrupt shutdown of Broadway due to the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. Interestingly, her father was also nominated for the same category for a performance in the same theatre 35 years prior, according to an Instagram post he shared in October 2021.

Kathryn also appeared in the hit Netflix series You, starring Penn Badgley. And she used her musical talents on the soundtrack for the 2012 movie Thanks for Sharing, starring Mark Ruffalo and Gwyneth Paltrow. Her most recent single, “Read It In the Paper”, was released on July 1.
