Katharine Ross Biography

Home > Actresses > R > Ross, Katharine > Biography

Birth Name: Katharine Ross
Born: 01/29/1940
Birth Place: Los Angeles, California, USA

After reprising one of her best feature roles in the above average TV-movie "Wanted: The Sundance Woman" (ABC, 1976), Ross accepted the regular role of the much married socialite Francesca Scott Colby Hamilton on the ABC primetime soap opera "The Colbys" (1985-87). She has frequently worked on the small screen opposite her husband, notably as the second wife of a Houston plastic surgeon (Elliott) who may have been involved in the death of his first wife in "Murder in Texas" (NBC, 1981). The pair have also starred together in the likable Western "Louis L'Amour's 'The Shadow Riders'" (CBS, 1982) and the biopic "Houston: The Legend of Texas" (CBS, 1986). Most recently, they co-wrote and co-starred in the 1991 TNT movie "Conagher", based on another Louis L'Amour novel.
