Katharine Towne Bio & Age

Katharine Towne is a talented American actress who was born right inside Hollywood in California, United States of America. Reportedly born on July 17, 1978, her dad is the famous American screenwriter, actor, and director, Robert Towne. For your information, Katharine’s father Robert was the author of the well-received 1974 American crime film, Chinatown, for which he won an Oscar. Katharine’s mother Julie Payne was also a revered actress.

What is more? As already hinted, Katharine is a grand-daughter to John Howard Payne (1912 – 1989) and Ann Shirley (1918 – 1983) who both had thriving careers in Hollywood. John Howard Payne was a well respected American actor, singer, and playwright who was active between the 1930s and 1970s. As for Katharine’s grandmother Ann Shirley (who had Katharine’s grandfather John as the first of her three husbands in her lifetime), she ended up as an Academy Award nominee in spite of many odds in her career.

Katharine Towne’s first credited role as an actress was in the 1998 American film, Cool Girl. Katharine was just 20 then. Although her last credited role was in 2012, she has had a line of thirty movies to her credit. These include some of the most prestigious screen projects such as the crime TV series CSI: NY (2011). After retiring from acting, Katharine is still much active on Twitter.

We have not been able to trace any detail about Katharine Towne’s education history. As such, we cannot tell whether, where or when she went to elementary, high school, and college. But from her behavior, it seems obvious that she is well educated. She has really manifested above average charisma and talent in her career. This is supported by the fact that in 2002, Katharine came 71st in the Hot 100 List. There is no doubt that her impressive outing in the 2001 sci-fi comedy, Evolution, contributed highly to this record achievement.

The marriage which came to an end in 2002 has been described by Charlie as ‘three painful years’. Although the actor has not revealed what he meant by that in detail, it is obvious that lack of experience was most probably responsible for the marital problems they had. Charlie Hunnam is a British actor who is probably most famous for his role as Jackson “Jax” Teller in the TV series, Sons Of Anarchy, that aired on the Walt-Disney-owned FX Channel between 2008 and 2014. He has been dating Morgana McNelis since 2005.
