Emmy Nominated for Outstanding Actress in a Digital Drama Series, and winner of seven Best Actress awards, a Best Supporting Actress Award and a Best Actress Nominee, Kathleen Gati was born and raised in Canada by Hungarian immigrants and was brought up in an artistic environment. Her father was a symphony conductor and her mother an opera singer, so performing was in her blood. She started acting at the age of three, wrote, directed and starred in her first play at the age of eight. After high school, she moved to New York to pursue her dream, where she studied and performed in dozens of plays both on and Off Broadway, as well as working in numerous roles on television and in film. Gati was invited to Hungary to be in the feature "Goldberg variácók", for which she won the Television and Film Critics Best Supporting Actress award.
She subsequently stayed on in Hungary for five years, during which time she starred in numerous films, television series and several movies of the week, winning multiple additional awards along the way including (for her story and lead role) the Film and Television Critics award for "A színésznö és a halál" (The Actress and the Death). Her performance in Hungary's biggest hit of the 1990s, "Sose halunk meg" (We Never Die), which made the final 35 films selected for Best Foreign Film entries for the Academy Awards, made her an extremely popular actress in eastern and central Europe. She won Best Actress at the Los Angeles Hungarian Film Festival in 2011 for her lead role in "Retrace" and was nominated for Best Actress at the New York International Film Festival in 2015 for "A Play on Words". Her lead role in "Lifeline" has garnered Gati five Best Actress awards. She is very well known as the stewardess on AMC's Fear The Walking Dead: Flight 462, as well as for her three seasons as Dr. Liesl Obrecht, Chief of Staff of ABC's "General Hospital" and as the CEO on BET's Being Mary Jane. She is also very popular for her two seasons on "24" as Anya Suvarov, the First Lady of Russia and in the new soon-to-be released feature American Dream directed by Janusz Kaminski, as the mother to Michiel Huisman.
