Katharine Ross

An Academy Award-nominated American movie and stage actress.

Trained at the San Francisco Workshop, she is perhaps best known for her role as Elaine Robinson in the 1967 film The Graduate, opposite Dustin Hoffman, and her role as Etta Place in 1969's Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, opposite Paul Newman and Robert Redford.

She was born in Hollywood when her father was in the Navy.

Her family later settled in Walnut Creek, California, east of San Francisco. She graduated from Las Lomas High School.

As of 2008, she is the only actress to win a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture Actress in a Supporting Role without getting an Oscar nomination for the same performance for "Voyage of the Damned" 1988.

She has lived in Malibu, California since the late 1960s.
