Katherine Heigl was born in Washington DC in 1978, the youngest of four children. When she was just seven years old, her 15-year old brother was killed in a tragic car accident. At age nine, Katherine became a model with the international Wilhelmina modeling agency and was starring in commercials for products like Cheerios within a few months. In 1994, she was nominated for a Young Artist Award for her theatrical work and also was on the cover of 17 magazine. In 1996, her parents were divorced and her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. Nearing her 19th birthday, she moved to Los Angeles in 1997 with her mother (who became her agent) and won parts in several small shows before being cast in Roswell. She had small parts in several shows and movies before being cast as Izzie for a five-year run in Grey’s Anatomy. While working with that show, she started her own production company. Since leaving Grey’s Anatomy, she has worked in several movies and television shows. Heigl has won several awards for her acting, including two Character and Morality in Entertainment Awards (2003, 2005), one Emmy for Supporting Actress in a Drama, and two People’s Choice Awards (2008, 2010). She is a major supporter of organ donation (because of her brother’s death) and founded the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation in his name to increase awareness of inhumane treatment of animals. In addition, she works with the Heigl Hounds of Hope, rescuing large dogs from kill shelters, and the Heigl Foundation’s Networking Program which financially supports rescue shelters instead of kill shelters. As an adult, Heigl purchased property in Utah and is a citizen of the state of Utah.
