    Even Fred’s angelic patience wears thin when Stacy, whom he saw kissing her TV series star colleague Brian Pullman, takes forever to tell him, yet ponders whether and how to confront her. Kim is charmed by Yale-educated Baptist pastor Ben Logan but hard-pressed to defend his sermons encouraging poor parishioners to shoplift what they need from the monopolist store chain, or his brat daughter Ann, who simply stole for herself. Jane willfully accepts a case dodged by Parker, his vandal ex’s claim against her father’s insurance company. Judge Owen French keeps giving Jane mixed signals.

    It’s Thursday and that means a new episode of The Stand and unfortunately day’s all new episode 1×08 – The Stand was the last in the season and show. After not being in last weeks episode Kat was back for this one and had two part’s in it, first in the trial and later as a MC for the execution but as all things go a lightning storm hit as they do and miss Julie Lawry did not survive in the end. The show was a good watch but I do think they very much under used Kat in it for how much promo she got before hand to what she was in. You can find HD Screen Captures and two episode stills now in the gallery.

    Grumpy Magazine just released it’s new Collector Edition magazine and our girl was the subject of the 26 page magazine with a full new interview and just gorgeous new photoshoot to go with it. I have added in the photoshoot and full digital scans from the magazine to the gallery for you all. If you would like to get your hands on the magazine you can get a physical copy Here or a digital copy Here.

    grumpymagazine – She might be just 25, but it’s no surprise that Katherine McNamara feels like she has lived a million lives throughout her career. Unafraid to put herself out of her comfort zone and explore her inner self across all mediums, the versatile actress — who can also sing and dance — has proven her dedication over the past few years by getting involved in multiple and diverse projects. She booked her breakout lead role on fantasy drama and global phenomenon Shadowhunters when she was only 19, then kept finding success by joining the cast of hit superhero series Arrow — all that in a matter of years. As a true “chameleon” that she intends to be, one of her most recent projects led her to take on a darker role as she entered the apocalyptic world of Stephen King in the adaptation of The Stand on CBS All Access.

    Kat — as many refer to her — was interviewed by fellow industry friend Zelda Williams on New Year’s Eve. The two of them met at their first Upfronts for Freeform in 2016, when Katherine was promoting the first season of Shadowhunters while Zelda was attending the event for her show Dead of Summer. As a horror movie enthusiast, Zelda directed and produced Kappa Kappa Die in which Katherine made a brief — but memorable — appearance, as she recalled happily that she was shooting Arrow in Vancouver and flew to Los Angeles for a day to get murdered with a Jello shot. Throughout the friendly conversation full of positive energy, Katherine reflected on the hugely different year 2020 has been for her, staying creative and busy during quarantine, and successfully going from hero to villain on-screen.

    ZELDA WILLIAMS: I do miss work and I know you do as well. Looking back, is there one role that feels like this defining era for you? There’s like everything that was before this role and then everything that’s come after.
    KATHERINE MCNAMARA: I feel like Shadowhunters would be that one for me — not only because of where I was in my career before and after, but also where I was as a human being. I had been working in and out of television and movies for years. Shadowhunters was really the first time that I was at the helm of something. I had a lot of responsibility on my shoulders — not only to the book fans, but the on-set responsibilities of being in that position. I was also 19 years old when I came into the show and I finished it when I was 23. So it really shaped a lot of who I was as an adult, and there was even a period of time as the show was ending that I had to go, ‘‘What is Katherine like as an adult after this show? How do I frame my life now?’’ Because everything in my adult life has been framed around this job.

    venicemagftl – With Reckless Abandon
    From starring as a hero on a fantasy TV series to playing a villain in a post-apocalyptic show, Katherine McNamara is cementing herself as a young Hollywood actor to watch.

    Plenty of actors loath auditioning for roles, but Katherine McNamara is not like plenty of actors.

    Her favorite days are when her car is packed with snacks, scripts and changes of clothes as she travels between auditions with barely enough time to read through all of the material. Performing lines for a director reminds McNamara of her entree into the world of live theater more than a decade ago while growing up in Missouri.

    “One of the first actors who mentored me back when I was doing theater in Kansas City told me very early on that an actor’s job is to audition,” she says. “For those 10 minutes in that room, that is your job and that is your performance, and that is what you set out to do.”

    Unless you keep up with McNamara on Instagram—where she shares everything from behind-the-scenes snaps of comic book conventions around the world to motivational quotes and workout routines with her 3.8 million followers—the way you picture the petite, 25-year-old actor depends on the character you’ve seen her play.

    For the lead role of Clary Fray on the Freeform fantasy series “Shadowhunters,” which ran from 2016 to 2019, McNamara’s hair was a striking red. When playing cage fighter and vigilante Mia Smoak during the seventh and eighth seasons of “Arrow,” which celebrated its finale in 2020, her locks were a honey blond. And as Julie Lawry in “The Stand,” which aired on CBS All Access Dec. 17, McNamara sported pink roots.

    “I will do anything if it’s for a character,” she says. “If somebody told me tomorrow that I had to shave my head for the role of a lifetime, I would do it without thinking.”

    Before McNamara dreamed of performing on stage or in front of a camera, she planned on becoming an economist. An only child, she modeled her trajectory off of family members who work in the science and medical fields. “I had no idea that being an actor was even a job,” she says. She took ballet classes for fun. At age 12, when a local community theater production was in need of a young dancer, she agreed to perform.

    “I had one of those rare moments of clarity that some of us are lucky enough to have sometimes,” McNamara says. “It just hit me like a brick wall that I was put on this earth to tell stories and that I could not imagine doing anything else for the rest of my life. It was clear to me at that moment. I do not know why, and I do not know how, but I have never questioned it. I never looked back.”

    McNamara graduated from high school when she was just 14 years old, concurrently landing the role of Catherine Zeta-Jones’ daughter and Angela Lansbury’s granddaughter in the Broadway revival of “A Little Night Music.”

    Even when she moved into her apartment in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of New York City to pursue an acting career, she kept the advice she received from her family top of mind. “They said, ‘Pursue your passion with reckless abandon, but just make sure you get a degree, and you go to school, and you have an education,’” she recalls. So, McNamara graduated from Drexel University with a bachelor’s in business administration by age 17.

    McNamara started working in film and TV in New York, and then about nine years ago, she booked a pilot for Disney Channel in Los Angeles for what was supposed to be a “High School Musical” TV series.

    She worked for Disney Channel for a few years after that and did other TV projects and pilots, but a real turning point in her career came when “Shadowhunters” debuted in 2016. She starred in the supernatural drama for three years, living up to the high expectations set by fans of the book series the show was based on: The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare.

    “I did that show from the time I was 19 to the time I was 23,” she says. “That is such a pure transitional period of your life, where you are figuring out who you are as an adult and what your perspective is and the way you live your life.”

    From there, she jumped into filming “Arrow” for two seasons. But after years of playing the hero, McNamara challenged herself with the opposite end of the spectrum for her role in “The Stand,” a miniseries based on author Stephen King’s 1978 novel. She was cast as “one of the most despicable villains” alongside actors including James Marsden, Jovan Adepo, Whoopi Goldberg and Amber Heard. They wrapped filming the post-apocalyptic TV show, which takes place (rather eerily) after a pandemic destroys the world, in early 2020.

    “It’s a story about beliefs and integrity as human beings,” she says, adding that King wrote a new ending to his story for the show. “When the whole world seems to be against you, what will you stand for, and what will you follow, and what will you believe, and what will you become in the face of the utmost adversity?”

    As audiences binge a show about the people left behind when the world ends, McNamara will be picking up where she left off before the real-life pandemic, continuing to challenge herself in different roles and telling stories that move people. She hopes one day that will even mean stepping behind the camera as a director.

    “I want to keep telling stories that remind people it’s OK to feel something, and it’s OK to be human,” she says. “It sort of holds a mirror up to the human experience and causes people to question the things they have taken for granted and really think about life from a different perspective.”
