How long have you’ve been an actor and how did you get your start as an actor?
KATHERINE CASTRO: I’m from the Dominican Republic and I got my start as a kid there.Â LikeÂ all kids, I started making shows for my parents at their house parties. I did little one-woman shows, played the piano, and did some monologues. I was always creating and it just became a natural transition for me into school plays in theÂ Dominican Republic. I lived in the United States for awhile. When I lived here in the States I gotÂ involvedÂ in dancing, ballet, jazz, and gymnastics. Â That was some of my first times being on stage in front of a live audience. Then I went back to the Dominican Republic, we were in the states because my Dad was in theÂ militaryÂ and he was working at the Dominican EmbassyÂ in Washington D.C. When his time was up we went backÂ and I knew then that dancing and acting was something that I wanted toÂ continueÂ to explore. I was the happiest when I was doing that.
