Katherine Pine Biography – Age and Family Background
Born on September 24, 1972, in Los Angeles, California, Katherine Gwynne Pine is the daughter of Robert Pine and Gwynne Gilford, both of whom were Hollywood actors. Also raised in California, actress Pine was a student of a high school near her hometown. However, the name of her school has not been disclosed and remains unknown. She is the older sister of handsome and popular actor, Chris Pine and they are both from a family of veteran Hollywood actors. Interestingly, they are the grandchildren of late veteran actors Anne Gwynne and Max M. Gilford.
Katherine’s maternal grandfather Gilford was an actor known for the 1959 movie Mustang! He was also a lawyer, producer and a president of the Hollywood Bar Association in his lifetime. His wife Anne Gwynne (Katherine’s maternal grandmother) is remembered for her star role in Ride ‘Em Cowboy (1942) and House of Frankenstein (1944) as well as the film series Public Prosecutor (1947 – 1948). Her father Robert Pine, is best known for playing Sergeant Joseph Getraer in the police-drama CHiPs (1998) while her mother Gloria Gwynne was an actress in the 1970s and 1980s who made appearances in several TV series. However, after retiring from acting in 1987, she went on to become a psychotherapist.
Coming from a family with such history in Hollywood, it was only natural for Katherine Pine and her brother to follow the footsteps of their parents. Though not a very popular name in the industry, Katherine tried her luck with acting and doesn’t have many film credits to her name. In the year 1997, she was cast for a role in the movie Heavy Gear which opened the doors of opportunities for her. Her next job was in 1998 in the movie CHiPs’ 99. In the same year, she was cast for a role in another movie Love Boat: The Next Wave. While the movie wasn’t a big success, Katherine’s performance also did not receive much attention or critical acclaim.
Unlike her brother Chris who made it big in the industry, the beautiful actress could not successfully establish herself in Hollywood and thereafter went on a hiatus. Chris Pine began his acting career on television with appearances on ER, The Guardian, and CSI: Miami. He made his feature-film debut in 2004, in The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement. He played prominent film roles in other movies which include Just My Luck (2006), Smoking Aces (2007), Star Trek (2009), Unstoppable (2010), This Means War (2012), Star Trek Into Darkness (2013), and Jack Ryan (2013). Chris apparently seems to be more in the limelight than Katherine. While there are insinuations that Katherine’s brother’s fame overshadowed hers, we do know that Katherine and Chris Pine share a strong bond despite the differences.
Katherine has left the show business and is now a therapist in California, helping people going through complexities. She is a specialist in anxiety, depression and relationship issues. Some sources say she obtained a degree in Psychotherapy in 2005 and thereafter started her career in the field of psychotherapy just like her mother.
Although she hasn’t won any awards nor nominations, Katherine was able to garner fame for herself regardless of her short time in the entertainment industry. The exact value of her net worth is yet to be ascertained, but sources reveal that she has an estimated net worth amount of $500,000.
People have often confused Katherine Pine for Katherine Heigl as they are examples of Hollywood’s many look-alikes. Not only do both actors share the same first name, they have quite similar facial structure, eyes, nose, lips and have at one point or the other, appeared on some popular TV shows.
However, their true fans can easily differentiate between them. While Pine has a deep golden brown hair, Heigl has a blond hair. They also have impressive body measurements. While Pine has a well-built body and stands at a height of 5 feet 10 inches, Heigl has an hourglass figure and is 5 feet 9 inches tall. Either way, they are both gorgeous ladies.
Is She Married, Who is Her Husband?
Its been over two decades since Katherine Pine disappeared from our screens and there has been little or no information about her life available for public consumption since then.
She is obviously one of those celebrities who prefer to keep their personal life under the radar, and details about her relationships and marital status remain a mystery to the media.
Moreover, she does not have an active social media life. Katherine may either be married or still single at the moment and we can only assume she is doing well for herself in her new career.
