    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.”

    Last Friday Kat gave us a new surprise with more new music, this time with the song Making a Monster out of Me that she got to be featured on the first episode of her new show The Stand and talking of the first episode Kat was not in it at all, I don’t no when she will be tuning up but episode two is on today so maybe?.

    “Surprise (Again) – another tune from the archives recorded years ago #makingamonsteroutofme – When there are such astronomical extenuating circumstances, it can be east to let external influences affect who we are and who we become. Even when the world isn’t upside down, One can become lost in a situation, a person, or even a time when life seems to spin out of control. In those moments, it’s important to acknowledge that and remember who you are at your core. Life can take us for a ride and seem to turn us into someone we don’s recognize. We all have a choice to make as to the person we want to be and the influence we want to have on those around us. No matter what sort of monster you may be facing, It’s Never to late to find your strength and your light and choose to do better. So enjoy the tune, get on your feet, shake off those monsters. It’s also featured for a moment in episode 1 of #thestand xKat”

    Way back in 2014 Katherine got her first full time main show in MTV’S very short lived Happyland were she played Harper Munroe the best friend to the main character Lucy Velez and love interest to Will Armstrong & Ian Chandler. As I said it was a very short show with only 8 episode’s made but as the show did end on a cliffhanger they were looking at having a season 2 but the show got cancelled before that could happen. It has taken me some time but I found the episode’s but they are not the best quality but better then nothing if I do find them in full 1080p I will redo them over but till then enjoy all the episode’s as well as promo photos, on set photos and some posters I have added into the galley.

    Happyland centers on Lucy, a cynical teenage girl whose mother works as a fairy tale princess in a popular theme park. Lucy explores the reality of growing up and falling in love whilst living in their fictional world of fantasy vs. reality.

    A divided country, a grab for power, a worldwide pandemic… Despite being based on Stephen King’s novel that’s now over 40 years old, “The Stand” is operating in familiar territory. Amber Heard, James Marsden, Odessa Young, Greg Kinnear, Brad William Henke, Henry Zaga, Nat Wolff, Jovan Adepo, Katherine McNamara and the series executive producers sound off on the new CBS All Access adaptation of “The Stand.” The nine-part miniseries that premieres December 17, 2020, and airs weekly after that also stars Owen Teague as Harold Lauder, Whoopi Goldberg as Mother Abigail and Alexander Skarsgård as Randall Flagg, with Ezra Miller appearing as Trashcan Man. The novel was first published by King in 1978 as his take on an American version of J.R.R. Tolkein’s “Lord of the Rings” novels.The new miniseries is directed in part by ‘The New Mutants’ helmer Josh Boone. Stephen King also wrote a new coda for this version of his epic novel.

    Whoopi Goldberg’s been eyeing the role of The Stand’s Mother Abagail for the past 26 years. As she explained to Vanity Fair, she wanted the part back in 1994, when Stephen King’s epic was first getting the miniseries treatment at ABC, though the role eventually went to Ruby Dee. Mother Abagail is the 108-year old prophet who, thanks to her line of communication with God, becomes the unifying force behind the Boulder Free Zone, a community of peaceful apocalypse survivors. “I’ve been fighting with not making her the Magic Negro because she’s complicated,” Goldberg said, a longtime fan of King’ work. She’s part of a sprawling cast of stars assembled to bring the author’s best-selling novel to life yet again—this time as a nine-episode miniseries for CBS All Access—which (with King’s blessing) looks to update the classic tale of good versus evil for a modern audience. During a virtual press junket ahead of The Stand’s premiere, The A.V. Club was given the opportunity to speak with Goldberg and her co-stars about the legacies of their iconic characters; Greg Kinnear, Jovan Adepo, Amber Heard, Nat Wolff, Odessa Young, Katherine McNamara, and James Marsden all weighed in on what it means to step into these well-known roles, and shared how they hope to highlight different shades to King’s work.

    Katherine McNamara chatted with ET’s Rachel Smith about playing the ‘Tinker Bell of the apocalypse’ in ‘The Stand,’ premiering Dec. 17 on CBS All Access. McNamara says playing Nadine was unlike anything she had done before, and that her character evokes both Elle Woods AND Harley Quinn. The ‘Arrow’ star believes Stephen King’s epic tale demonstrates how ‘people’s true colors come out’ in adversity, and will reflect how everyone has looked for a ‘new normal’ in the pandemic.
