Katharine Ross Looks Back on Being a Young TV Star in the ’60s

5 February 2015 2:09 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Before Katharine Ross garnered an Oscar nomination for “The Graduate,” the actress was working in a San Francisco theater troupe and starting to catch fire with guest roles on TV in the early 1960s. She’s onstage on Valentine’s Day at the Malibu Playhouse production of A.R. Gurney’s “Love Letters,” starring opposite her real-life husband, Sam Elliott.

Your first notice in Variety was for the San Francisco Actors Workshop production of something called “Twinkling of an Eye.”

And I’m not even sure that we even opened!

So it was more learning experience than thespian breakthrough?

It was where I learned I was bitten by the acting bug. But I actually learned a lot because we all did all of the jobs on the production from acting to ticket-taking to props.

Did your stage work lead to getting cast on television?

I did hear about a casting call »
