Katherine Heigl Interview from New York Post

Thanks to Chaz for sending this in!

From: New York Post



Even before Katherine Heigl was cast as an alien on the WB’s sci-fi series “Roswell,” her destiny seemed written in the stars.
When she was 9, her aunt sent pictures of her to a modeling agency, and soon Katherine was featured in several department-store catalogs.

Three years later, she made her film debut in “That Night,” starring Juliette Lewis. And at 14, played Gerard Depardieu’s beautiful but bratty daughter in “My Father the Hero.” The New Canaan, Conn., native went on to star in “Under Siege 2” with Steven Seagal, appear on David Letterman and Jay Leno’s talk shows, and grace the cover of Seventeen magazine – all before graduating from high school.

Once she did, she moved out West to concentrate on acting full time. She has since starred in films as varied as “The Tempest” (opposite Peter Fonda) and “The Bride of Chucky.” In the spring, you can catch the 5-foot-8 blonde beauty on the big screen in “100 Girls.”

The 21-year-old actress lives in Los Angeles, where she shares a four-bedroom house with her manager mom.
