Mini Bio (1)
Katie Barberi began her professional career at age ten. After having sustained a successful career as a teen aged actress in Hollywood, she then embarked on a second career: acting in Latin-American "telenovelas." It is a little known fact that Latin "soaps" are actually aired in over 40 countries as prime-time series. This afforded Katie the opportunity to become a very well known prime-time actress in the Latin market. She is 100% bilingual (English and Spanish) and is very grateful to have the benefits of being a part of two different cultures. Katie is now considered a Veteran of the Telenovela Genre, having completed nineteen of them for Televisa, Telemundo and Univision. Katie is also very proud to have this year completed over three hundred episodes and seven seasons of the Nickelodeon International mega-hit "Grachi" and its United States version for Nickelodeon, "Every Witch Way." In both English and Spanish, Katie played the funny, shoe obsessed mother of "Maddie/Matilda", "Ursula." Katie also completed a pilot this year for Red Dove Media called "The Blexicans", in which she plays proud Mexican matriarch Lydia Ortega alongside Rick Najera, Marla Gibbs, Richard Gant and Rolonda Watts, among others. Katie has been very excited to return to the stage, debuting in Chicago in October of 2018 in "Hundreds and Hundreds of Stars" (fka "Felons and Familias") at the Goodman Theatre, fulfilling a lifelong dream of stepping on the stage of the legendary theatre where so many of the artists Katie admires have performed before her. Katie will next star in the world premiere of "The Abuelas" at Victory Gardens for Teatro Vista, written by Stephanie Alison Walker. "The Abuelas" premieres February 9th of 2019.
