Whoever knocks Abercrombie & Fitch is going to have to deal with me so don’t badmouth them, especially not in front of actress Katie Cassidy: she used to model for them–one look at her headshot and you’ll understand why.
All-American beauty Katie Cassidy has made Screen Comment’s PEOPLE TO WATCH section and we’re thrilled to be able to talk about this fine young thesp.
Cassidy appeared in the CBS sitcom Listen Up and also did some stage work in 7th Heaven the Musical. The twenty-five year old, who reminded us of Hilary Duff, was born for showbiz. Her dad David Cassidy was a 1970s pop star; Katie herself is a native of Los Angeles, California. And Katie’s mother was a fashion model. The TV and film actor could’ve easily followed in her mother’s footsteps and would probably have had a spectacular career in modeling. But instead she decided to give acting a go and aren’t we thankful for it.
She’s appeared in a string of solidly successful films like Taken (starring Liam Neeson), A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Monte Carlo, in which she played Emma.
In 2011 and early 2012 you should expect to see Katie Cassidy in the thriller Fencewalker and the airport dramedy Bumped.
