To begin with, Katherine Parkinson studied at the Tiffin Girls’ School in Kingston-upon-Thames, London and then entered St. Hilda’s College, Oxford before moving to the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, where she met Chris O’Dowd, a fellow at “The IT Crowd”. During her studies, she left the course to star in the play “The Age of Consent”.

Concerning her professional career, she appeared in a new translation of Chekhov’s play “The Seagull”, at the Royal Court Theatre in London, along with Kristin Scott Thomas and Mackenzie Crook. In the years 2010 – 2011, she appeared in “Season’s Greetings” at the Royal National Theatre, and in 2011 as Lady Teazle in the play “The School for Scandal” directed by Deborah Warner at the Barbican Theatre. She also wrote sketches for her friend Katy Brand’s show, who she had known since studying Oxford. She then appeared in several BBC Radio 4 shows, including “Don’t Start (2011 – 2012), “The Lady from the Sea” (2012) and “Start/Stop” (2013), adding steadily to her net worth.

Regarding her roles for the big and small screens, the actress was cast as a main in the comedy film “The Boat That Rocked” (2009) by Richard Curtis. Meantime, from 2006 to 2013, Katherine portrayed Jen Barber in the television series “The IT Crowd”, which won her the British Comedy Award for the Best Television Comedy Actress as, well as the BAFTA award for Best Female Performance In A Comedy Programme. From 2007 to 2009, the actress created various characters in “Katy Brand’s Big Ass Show” aired on ITV2, and was also in the main cast of the television films “The Great Outdoors” (2010), “The Bleak Old Shop of Stuff” (2011) among several others. More, Katherine starred in the political thriller miniseries “The Honourable Woman”, which won multiple awards, and since 2014, Parkinson has interpreted Kim Hall in the British drama series “In the Club”, aired on BBC One. Since 2015, the actress has had the lead role of Laura Hawkins in the series “Humans”.

#Quote
1When I was at school studying biology, I wanted to be a medical researcher. I did work experience at St Mary's Hospital in London, and I begged them to let me see the post mortems. So the first time I saw a naked male was at 15, when I saw an 89 year old man who had died of a brain hemorrhage.
2You do develop a taste as an actress: Chekhov, Ayckbourn: it's the combination of comedy and human drama. I would never want to do anything without comedy.
3Acting is about enhancing your life, not representing something that's missing.
4Because I'd done 30 plays or so at Oxford, I thought that I was an actress anyway because that's what I was doing!
5Carol Burnett, who played Miss Hannigan in 'Annie', is as funny as it gets.
6'Family Guy' is relentlessly excellent.
7I admire any woman who does stand-up, but frankly I'd rather pull out my own eyelids.
8I'm going to get myself one of those, um, movable computers - what do you call them... ? Laptops! I am bad. I still call my radio a wireless.
9I've become one of those women who thrusts her engagement finger out all the time.
10There are a few people who genuinely see the best in everyone.
11I did a lot of serious plays, and I did the Oxford Review as well, which is supposed to be funny, but I'm not sure how funny we were when we did it. Then, when I finished my course, it was only then that I decided to go to drama school and try and do acting because I was enjoying it so much and so on.
12People don't realise what a nice thing it is for an actor to go to a job where they know or like everybody, because you're so often having to do new beginnings, starting off on set with people you don't know, having to introduce yourself and make friends.
