Katherine McNamara is real life superhero right now.
The Shadowhunters star revealed in the new issue of Modeliste magazine that acting was never the plan at all.
“I actually never intended to become an actor. My initial plan was to go into finance,” she revealed.
Economics? That’s a couple of planets away from acting!
Kat continued, “Economics was my passion and I wanted to become a financial analyst or CEO or economist. However, I ran into a family friend who was directing a community theater show, gave it a short for kicks, fell in love and the rest is history. I fulfilled by economics dreams [though] by pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration.”
If you think that’s impressive, she’s still working on a bigger degree!
In an interview with Teen Vogue a few years ago, Kat revealed that while working on Shadowhunters, she’s still studying for her Masters in Applied Economics from Johns Hopkins University.
