bio

Katy Erin is an actor, writer, and model based in Los Angeles.

Most recently she made her playwriting debut with THE CURE TO MORTALITY, a science fiction dark comedy musical that premiered at the 2016 Hollywood Fringe Festival.  Along with developing the book and lyrics and co-composing the music, Katy starred in the show, which festival reviewers called "thoroughly entertaining from beginning to end" and "dark comedy at its finest."

Her career in theatre dates back to early childhood with a debut performance in Rumpelstiltskin at the age of 6, and has since included award-winning performances in high school competitions, her directing debut in undergrad with The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, some time studying improv with UCB Theatre, and a couple of years performing in rep at the Santa Monica Playhouse.  Favorite roles include Ursula Merkle in Bye Bye Birdie, both Fairy May and Lily Belle in separate runs of The Curious Savage, the Jack of Hearts in Alice and the Wonderful Tea Party, and originating the titular role in the world premiere of Annabelle and the Snow Queen Express.  In addition to the stage, Katy starred in the award-winning short People With Issues, for which she and the rest of the cast received a nod for Best Ensemble at the Houston Comedy Film Festival.

Katy's modeling career began with a kick-start when a quick portrait test session with photographer Mary Tap was published by Vogue Italia and featured on their Best Of section.  Since then, she's become the face of many local Los Angeles designers - such as Married and Bright and Concrete Blues - and has been featured in fashion editorials for Last Daze, Fashion Grunge, and Rebel Girls, as well making a few returns to PhotoVogue.

A Texas native, Katy graduated from the University of Texas in 2012 with a B.S. in Radio-Television-Film, where she focused her studies on writing for the screen and interactive media.
