Katherine Waterston grew up in a small town in Connecticut. As the middle child in a family of actors, Waterston regularly visited her father, Oscar-nominated actor Sam Waterston, on television and movie sets.
Waterston attended New York University where she hoped to major in theater and photography, however, due to heavy workloads in both fields she just focused on theater, following in the footsteps of her family.
With just a few films under her belt, Waterston landed her first lead role in The Babysitters (2008), co-starring Cynthia Nixon and John Leguizamo. In this eerie drama, Waterston played an honor student who engages in a sexual affair with the father of the children she babysits, eventually forming a prostitution ring so she can collect money for college.
Waterston then starred in the independent film Good Dick (2008), in which she acted alongside her sister, Elisabeth Waterston, The Factory (2012) with John Cusack, and Night Moves (2013) with Jesse Eisenberg and Dakota Fanning. Most recently, she starred in Inherent Vice (2014), Steve Jobs (2015), and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016).
