Katy Erin is an award winning actor and screenwriter.
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 most recently won both OtherWorlds Austin and the Sci-Fi Screenplay Festival of Toronto for her script titled Stuck. Previously, she made her playwriting debut with 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 earned her and her co-star a nod for Best Acting Duo from the Independent Shorts Awards.
Upcoming in 2019, she stars in the Y2K-inspired dramedy Millennium Bugs.
