In high school, Katherine stopped playing sports and started attending a theater studio for teenagers. She dreamed of continuing her studies in drama, but she couldn't immediately get into acting school. Throughout 2013, Katherine took courses at theater studios and worked to pay for them herself.

In 2014, she was able to enroll in the Principal Academy of Dance & Theatre Arts, where she performed in several plays and was recognized in the lead role in the student production of "Evita". Katherine's beauty, youthful enthusiasm, and undeniable talent were finally noticed, and she was offered a grant to study at the National Institute of Dramatic Art. However, to the surprise of her family and friends, she declined.

Early Roles

Catherine's ascent to cinematic Olympus began in 2015 when she hired an agent and landed a role in the short film "Story of Miss Oxygen". The film was showcased at the Australian Independent Film Festival, drawing attention to the young actress.

In 2016, Langford appeared in the short film "Imperfect Quadrant" and played the lead role in the short feature "Daughter", which was screened at the Cannes Film Festival.

That same year, Catherine auditioned for a television project dedicated to the early life of William Shakespeare, but she didn't get the part. Catherine had experienced rejection before and wasn't disheartened. Instead, she began preparing with renewed hope for her next audition for a new Netflix series, which turned out to be her golden ticket to Hollywood.

13 Reasons Why

As we know, people are judged by their appearance, and a series - by the first episodes, and "13 Reasons Why", intriguing the audience not with the first episodes, but with the first shots, lived up to the expectations of the creators, earning the highest marks from leading film critics in America and Europe.

The second main character of the drama is Clay, who is one of the reasons for Hannah's suicide, a homosexual, which also contributed to the fuss around the series, in a somewhat grotesque manner revealing the vices of society and the difficulties that every teenager experiences during the period of self-identification and maturation.

Two seasons of the project, called the masterpiece of masterpieces, were released from 2017 to 2018, and at the end of the second season, the creators decided to extend it for another season, the filming of which began in the fall of 2018. Dylan Minnette, Alisha Boe, Ross Butler, Derek Luke, and other young actors also starred in the series.

Katherine also joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Morgan Stark, Tony Stark's grown-up daughter, whom he sees after Thanos' snap in "Avengers: Endgame". However, her scenes were cut during the final edit. We realized we had no emotional connection to Tony's grown-up daughter. It just didn't feel right and didn't resonate with us on an emotional level, explained Robert Downey Jr..

In 2020, Katherine also played one of the leading roles - Nimue, a character from ancient English folklore - in the Netflix series "Cursed".
