Katy Erin is an actor, writer, and film producer.
She was born and raised in a small town in central Texas, which perhaps contributed to her early passion for the art of escapism. After spending her formative years taking drama club and marching band much too seriously, she moved to Austin to study filmmaking at the University of Texas before graduating and relocating to Los Angeles.
She has since appeared on television shows such as Showtime’s Shameless, where she was directed by Emmy winner William H Macy, and Wisdom of the Crowd on CBS, where she recurred alongside Natalia Tena and Jeremy Piven. She also starred as it-girl “Edison” in two seasons of the hit web series Gal Pals, which, among other accolades, was voted WhoHaha’s Favorite Web Series of 2018.
As a writer, Katy was most recently recognized as a Finalist at Other Worlds Austin and a Winner at the Fantasy/Sci-Fi Screenplay Festival for her sci-fi script Stuck. Previously, she made her playwriting debut at the Hollywood Fringe Festival by starring in her sci-fi comedy musical The Cure To Mortality, which received praise as being a “darkly comedic and thought provoking” and “life-affirming” show. She’s written, produced, and starred in a handful of short films as well, including the comedy Out Of It, which will be making its way through the festival circuit this Spring.
Other upcoming film credits include Shatara Michelle-Ford’s indie drama American Woman, and starring in Alejandro Montoya-Marin’s comedy Millennium Bugs.
