Kathleen Robertson / Colleen Howe

Kathleen Robertson's diverse projects and chameleon-like performances continue to impress audiences and critics alike. She stars in Gus Van Sant's Golden Globe® winning Starz political drama "Boss" as aid to Kelsey Grammer. Also percolating is the series "Your Time Is Up" about a wildly successful, yet deeply troubled psychologist for which she will write, produce and potentially star as the lead. This marks Robertson's second produced script within a year as the indie feature "Gravity Pulls," in which she stars and co-wrote, is also in the can. Her next film, Weinstein Co.'s "Seal Team Six: The Raid On Osama Bin Laden," is from the producers of "The Hurt Locker," and follows his demise.

Additionally, the drama "A Night for Dying Tigers," in which she stars, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. She more recently filmed the anticipated sequel to Writer/Director Don Shebib's 1970 Canadian classic "Goin' Down the Road," fittingly titled "Down the Road Again."

Robertson headlined IFC's Gemini Award-winning mockumentary style comedy series "The Business," for which she also served double duty as Executive Producer. The six-hour mini-series take on "The Wizard of Oz," called "Tin Man," in which she starred as the wicked sorceress sister to Zooey Deschanel, recently garnered SyFy's highest ratings in the network's history, along with multiple Emmy® nominations. Other films include a starring role in the dramatic thriller "Static," and the romantic comedies "Not Since You" and "Losing Control."

No stranger to the big screen, Robertson starred alongside Academy Award-®winners Ben Affleck and Adrien Brody in the thriller "Hollywoodland," which chronicled the mysterious death of George Reeves, TV's Superman. Robertson starred opposite Mark Ruffalo in IFC Films' sexual drama "XX/XY" that was in dramatic competition at Sundance Film Festival.

In direct contrast, Robertson also starred for Keenan Ivory Wayans in the sequel to Dimension Films' blockbuster, "Scary Movie." Previously, she collaborated with writer/director Gregg Araki on the films "Splendor," in which she starred as Veronica, a girl caught in the middle of a love triangle and "Nowhere," in which she portrayed the overbearing, purple-haired lesbian Lucifer.

Additional feature credits include "Beautiful" with Minnie Driver for director Sally Field, Bruce McCulloch's "Dog Park" and Sundance favorite, "Psycho Beach Party." Robertson has also co-starred with Bill Murray in director John McNaughton's comedy "Speaking of Sex," starred as notorious Canadian murderer Evelyn Dick in the grizzly 1946 true story "Torso," for which she garnered her third Best Actress Gemini Award nomination, and had a coveted cameo opposite Sean Penn in New Line Cinema's "I Am Sam." In addition, she appeared in the Adam Goldberg helmed "I Love Your Work" with Giovanni Ribisi and Franke Potente.

Robertson's film resume also includes the dramatic thriller "Last Exit," for which she received her second Gemini Award-nomination, "Player 5150" and "The Hill." Other credits include "In the Dark" opposite Charlotte Rampling, "Until the Night" with Norman Reedus, director Tim Hunter's "Control" alongside Willem Dafoe and Ray Liotta, and "Mall Cop," which marks director David Greenspan's first full-length feature after winning the Cannes Film Festival's coveted Pal, D'or for his short "Beancake."

Roberston’s first foray into television since assuming the role of Clare Arnold on the hit FOX series "Beverly Hills, 90210" was the David E. Kelley drama "Girls Club," for which she received considerable critical praise.

A native of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, Robertson currently resides in Los Angeles.
