Kate Mulgrew is the second child in an Irish Catholic family of eight children, raised by her parents Joan Kiernan and Thomas James Mulgrew II. After matriculation from Wahlert High School, she enrolled at New York University, and at the same time, Kate was accepted into the Stella Adler Conservatory of Acting. Soon after, she decided to drop out of college, as she wanted to pursue her career as an actress. Before that, she worked as a waitress to support herself.

Thus, Kate’s acting career began as early as 1975, simultaneously taking part in stage and TV productions, such as “Our Town”, a stage production, as Emily Webb, and “Ryan’s Hope”, a soap opera, in which Kate continued to act until 1989, appearing in more than 400 episodes. During that time, her net worth was established, and her popularity started to rise.

She continued to perform in stage playsfrom 1975, and has appeared in over 30 productions, including “Othello” (1978), “The Misanthrope” (1984), “The Real Thing” (1986), “Titus Andronicus” (1989), “What The Battler Saw” (1992), “Mary Stuart” (2004), “The Exonerated” (2006), and “Equus” (2008), among others, which represents a large part of her total net worth.

When it comes to her career on television, Kate is regarded as one of the best actresses of her time. Her career spans more than four decades, during which she has appeared in more than 60 film and TV titles.

Thanks to her success on the “Ryan’s Hope”, it became quite easy for Kate to obtain new engagement, and during the 1970s, she also appeared in such series as “Mrs. Columbo” (1979-1980), and the film made for television “The American Woman: Portraits of Courage” (1976), among others. Her net worth was certainly rising.

In the 1980s, she emerged as a young and talented actress, and with ease secured roles in such popular productions as “Lovespell” (1981) in a lead role with Richard Burton, “Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins” (1985), “Throw Momma from the Train” (1987), and the TV series “Heartbeat” (1988-1989), etc.

She continued successfully through the 1990s, securing several notable roles, such as Captain Kathryn Janeway in the highly praised TV series “Star Trek: Voyager” (1995-2001), which certainly increased her net worth to a large degree. She also appeared in productions such as “Camp Nowhere” (1994), and “Riddler’s Moon” (1998), among others.

The 2000s didn’t change much for Kate, only the number of titles in which she appeared. In 2002 she repeated her role of Kathryn Janeway in the film “Star Trek: Nemesis”, and she also appeared in the short film “Star Trek: The Experience – Borg Invasion 4D” in 2004. Furthermore, in 2006 she lent her voice to characters in the video game “Star Trek: Legacy”, which also contributed to her net worth.

In 2007, Kate featured in the TV series “The Black Donnellys”, and by 2010 she also appeared in such productions as “Mercy” (2009-2010). With the second decade of the 2000s, she focused more on television, appearing in such series as “Warehouse 13” (2011-2013), and “NTSF:SD:SUV” (2011-2013). Most recently Kate has been featuring in the TV series “Orange Is the New Black” (2013-2015), alongside other stars Ruby Rose and Taylor Schilling among others.

Thanks to her skills, Kate has received numerous prestigious nominations and awards, including Golden Globe nomination in the category of Best Actress in a Television Series for her work on “Mrs. Columbo”. Furthermore, she won the Saturn Award for her work on “Star Trek”, among others.

In 1999 she married Cleveland, Ohio politician Tim Hagan, but they divorced in 2015. She also has a daughter, born 1977, who was given up for adoption.

# Quote
1 On the best and worst part about playing a Star Trek captain: The best thing was simply the privilege and the challenge of being able to take a shot at the first female captain, transcending stereotypes that I was very familiar with. [I was] able to do that in front of millions of viewers. That was a remarkable experience – and it continues to resonate. The downside of that is also that it continues to resonate, and threatens to eclipse all else in one’s long career if one does not up the ante and stay at it, in a way that may not ordinarily be necessary. I have to work at changing and constantly reinventing myself in a way that probably would not have happened had Star Trek not come along. I knew that going in, and I think that all of the perks attached to this journey have been really inexpressively great. So the negatives are small. (September/October 2006, Star Trek Magazine issue #1)
2 I would consider playing Janeway in a movie, but not on television. Would I play Janeway again knowing what I know about the experience? Yes, I think I would. I’m really so proud of what I did. I don’t think I’ve met anyone who worked as hard as I did during those seven years, except maybe Patrick Stewart, and maybe not even Patrick because he wasn’t raising two children on his own. I proved myself to myself. (September/October 2006, Star Trek Magazine issue #1)
3 About her years on Star Trek: I’m proud of it. It was difficult; it was hard work. I’m proud of the work because I think I made some little difference in women in science. I grew to really love Captain Janeway, and out of a cast of nine, I’ve made three great friends, I managed to raise two children. I think, “It’s good. I used myself well.”. (August 31, 2005)
4 When I joined [Voyager] at the eleventh hour, we had nothing but hair problems. Short? Long? With a hairpiece? Without a hairpiece? All the concerns were about my hair–the hair being the trademark of the woman, right? Finally, we got all that settled but I think there was really something else going on. I think they were nervous about having a woman as captain but they couldn’t be as general as to say, “We’re just nervous about her.”. So it’s best to pick something–like hair!…
5 I think people think I’m accessible. I’m never treated as a star, either by fans or other actors, and I like it like that. I don’t get the star treatment. I think that means I’m a good actor. They acknowledge me as a human being, and to me, that’s invaluable, because that’s exactly what I am!
6 I have a very rich and wonderful personal life, and at its core are my sons. I will tell you very frankly that I have missed them badly in these five years… But what we’re talking about is a block of time I’ve missed now with them. Years when nurturing was crucial, I think to their self-esteem. The kind of nurturing that comes without conditions or contingencies. The kind of nurturing that is so simple and so basic to human nature, regarding this relationship between mother and son. We missed it.
7 A lot of her is me. I’ve had this broad under my belt for five years. I own her – and nobody can tell me that I don’t own her. I love every single dimension and component of her being. Her nobility, her flawed character, her laughter, her love of the absurd, her love of the unknown, her love of science… I’ve loved her great heart, her formidable spirit, her guts. She has a much better mind than mine, and a gifted imagination as well, but she’s a little prickly, and certainly not without ego. She has this profound sense of humanity: she can talk to anybody and they listen.
8 [When speaking of the death penalty] Execution as punishment is barbaric and unnecessary.
9 Life is sacred to me on all levels. Abortion does not compute with my philosophy.
10 The minute there’s a nip in the air, the fire’s lit and the brandy is poured.
