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 space western 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 coming-out comedy Out Of It, which earned her and her co-star a nod for Best Acting Duo from the 2019 Independent Shorts Awards.
Upcoming, she stars in the Y2K-inspired dramedy Millennium Bugs, as well as the highly anticipated third and final season of Gal Pals. She’ll also be directing her second short film, a time-traveling dark comedy titled Bootstraps.
