Katharine King So’s Acting Career

Following college, she returned to the sets, but this time she worked as a crew member for a while. She did most of the jobs for free because of her passion for gaining more knowledge about this competitive industry. Some of her notable works include production coordinator in “I Believe in Miracles,” Vfx Production Assistant in “The Kissing Booth,” and Visual Effects Production Assistant in “Book Club.”

Her experience of working in close proximity to casting directors helped her understand why one gets the role, and someone else doesn’t. Her return to working in front of the camera happened gradually. At first, she did stage performances and performed prominent characters in productions such as “The History of Sexuality,” “Hamster,” and “Lucky.”

On-screen, her first project became the 2018 show “The Bold Type,” following which came “The Walk-In Closet.” Her performance as Phyllis in “The Detectives” was also worth appreciation. On big-screen, her return happened with Amelia Moses-directed thriller titled “Bloodthirsty” where Lauren Beatty played the protagonist Grey, a singer who finds that she is half wolf.

It will be correct to say that Katharine’s career snowballed after “Bloodthirsty” because her performance in that movie was so fantastic that it helped her get roles in many other significant projects like “The Voyeurs,” “Woodland Grey,” “A Gingerbread Christmas” and “Bite-Size Holiday.”
