Career. The BeginningWhen Katherine turned 12, she acted with other children in a potato chips commercial. After her first acting experience, the girl started to dream about acting in films, so pretty soon she told her parents about her intention to become an actress.

In 2000, Kat appeared on television for the first time. She portrayed a spoilt Jenny from Sex and the City who hired Samantha to organize her a 21st birthday party. Katherine chose her father's last name as her stage name, for she believed that his last name was louder than her mom's. In the credits of Sex and the City, she was next to Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker.
During the next several years, Kat was attending an acting studio and regularly appeared in TV shows and programs.
Best RolesIn 2008, the musical drama film Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist was released. Katherine was a leading actor. Michael Cera was her co-star. For brilliantly portraying Norah who asked a bass player of a cool rock band to pretend to be her boyfriend, the actress earned several nominations.
In the following few years, Dennings appeared in such pictures as Defender, Shorts, and Daydream Nation. In the fantasy film Thor, she portrayed Darcy, a shy assistant of a Doctor Foster portrayed by Natalie Portman.

In 2018, YouTube Red released the animated parody western-fantasy film Dallas & Robo that Kat Dennings had voiced.
