Kathryn Myles is a versatile, well-trained actor working in Los Angeles and Boston. Originally from small-town Massachusetts, her stage career began in dance, performing throughout New England with the acclaimed Seacoast Civic Dance Company. Sidelined by a career-ending injury, she stumbled into an acting class and never looked back.
Theater training began at the age of fourteen, under the tutelage of Marc Clopton at Newburyport’s The Actors’ Studio and later Jeremy Geidt, Ryan McKittrick and Rob Orchard through Harvard Extension School’s partnership with The American Repertory Theater.
Myles continued her study at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst’s School of Humanities and Fine Arts, where years of performance study amassed diverse credits in works by Shakespeare, Shepard and Shaw; the Classicists and the Absurdists; as well as new works by young playwrights.
She graduated from the University in 2007, holding a degree in Theater awarded with highest Latin honors by the institution’s Commonwealth Honors College.
Now, with performance credits spanning nearly twenty years, Myles’ resume boasts a broad range of work - from productions at the Tony Award-winning Huntington Theatre Company, to experimental fringe work with independent companies at Boston’s The Factory Theatre. It includes classical drama and contemporary comedy; Elliot Norton and IRNE awards.
The upcoming season is an exciting one, including the regional premiere of Nina Raine’s incendiary play TRIBES with Speakeasy Stage Company, guest spots on Morton Street Productions’ “What I Learned From…” web series and a return to the seasonal acting company at Boston’s beloved Actors’ Shakespeare Project for HENRY VIII with powerhouse director Tina Packer.
