Katy Erin is an actor, writer, and model based in Los Angeles. Most recently, Katy wrote and starred in Emergency Contact, a dramedy about two strangers who bond over an untimely death, which just wrapped principal photography. She's also currently acting as a series regular in the first season of Gal Pals, a queer-centric comedy series coming Spring of 2017. Previously, she and her castmates were nominated for "Best Ensemble" at the 2014 Houston Comedy Film Festival for the short film People With Issues, which has since been made into a feature film to be released later this year.
In June of 2016, Katy made her playwriting debut with The Cure to Mortality, a science fiction dark comedy musical that premiered at the Hollywood Fringe Festival. Along with developing the book, lyrics, and music, Katy starred in the show, which festival reviewers called "thoroughly entertaining from beginning to end" and "dark comedy at its finest."
Having been on stage since she was a child, some of her favorite roles include Ursula Merkle in Bye Bye Birdie, Verity Taylor in Find Me, and Lily Belle in The Curious Savage. Her theatre history also involves a directing debut with The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, some time studying improv with UCB Theatre, and a couple of years performing original family musicals at the Santa Monica Playhouse.
Katy's modeling career began with a kick-start when a quick portrait test session was featured as “Best Of” on Vogue Italia. Since then she's been featured in many more editorials for publications such as Fashion Grunge, Last Daze, and 35mm Magazine, and has even walked in Los Angeles Fashion Week. Her clientele ranges from the sleek menswear of RB Manville to the cool street style of Concrete Blues to the fun femininity of Married and Bright lingerie.
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.
