Preview celebrating women in television: Kathryn Morris

Kathryn Morris's first appearance on the small screen was in the 1991 telemovie Long Road Home, where she had a minor role. Several other small parts followed, including one as a psychiatric patient in the Oscar-winning film As Good as it Gets. She then played the lead in the short-lived television series Pensacola: Wings of Gold and continued to work in films.

After Steven Spielberg saw Morris in the 2000 movie The Contender, he offered her supporting roles in A.I.: Artificial Intelligence and Minority Report. The following year came the lead in Cold Case

In her interview with StartTV, Morris reflects, “Something that I've found to be very important is I had many little jobs on the way to some of the big moments that happened in my career. All of those things helped me learn how to show up on time, how to stand on my mark, how to be professional.”

She continued, “I never really looked at Cold Case as an overnight success. I feel like I had 13, 14, 15 years of being an apprentice or a journeyman. I never underestimate the small steps in learning to become an actor.” After a pause, she added, “or learning how to do anything in life.”

While all the characters are really good in their roles, Katherine Morris makes the show go. I watched it every week back then and plan my day around the two episodes now. Great talent and the most beautiful face on TV is a powerful combination.
