    Bio

    Stana is a mix of Croatian and Serbian ancestry and calls her family Dalmatian because thats the part of the area they are originally from. She grew up in Winona, Ontario, but later moved with her family to Aurora, Illinois, where she graduated from West Aurora High School in 1996. She then moved back to Canada and was accepted into the University of Toronto, where she studied biology and international law (askmen.com).

    But after getting bit by the acting bug (when a friend asked her to perform in a short film), Stana enrolled in Chicagos Goodman School of Drama. That probably went against her parents advice. When I was growing up, my parents encouraged me to pick a path that was safe and sane. She cut her chops on stage plays and made her film debut in 2003s Shut-Eye.

    Stana Katic landed small parts in movies and televisions series, including roles in Alias, JAG, The Closer, ER, 24, Heroes, CSI: Miami and The Unit. But her big break came when she landed a starring role opposite Nathan Fillion on Castle.

    Stana Katic said of the physicality involved in playing her character, Beckett: Ive always been comfortable with it. I love it. I have a lot of brothers. Its easy for me to do physical stuff. I had to surviveI want to do action films. I want to go and hang off of wires, and jump off of bridges, and hang on bungee chords (collider.com).

    She added about her character dating Castle: Were going to discover what Beckett is like in a relationshipthe girl in Beckett, the one that doesnt have to be the alpha female in the room leading the charge, (hollywoodreporter.com).

    Stana Katic has also lent her voice for the video game Batman: Arkham City. She has been named on a variety of Sexiest Lists and received the PRISM Award for Performance in a Drama Episode.

    In her free time, Stana Katic likes to read and travel. Stana can speak numerous languages, including Croatian, French, Bosnian, Italian, Serbian, English and Slovenian. She is also trained in Isshinryu Karate, stage and film combat, and belly dancing. And in 2008, Stana Katic established her own production company, Sineo Timore, (which is Latin for Without fear.)

    She lives in Los Angeles and is currently single.
