Catherine O’ Hara: Canadian comedy queen

Among the various TV and movie genres, comedy is what I like the best. That is why I know all the eminent comedians and actors, more or less. One such talented comedian actor is Catherine O’Hara. This actor who has a Canadian-American origin was born in March 1954. Catherine O’Hara  was born and brought up in an Irish catholic household in Ontario. She has a U.S citizenship. She tied the knot in 1992. Her spouse is director Bo Welch and the couple has two children. Her comedy show broadcasted on SCTV has made her popular along with her other notable performances. The audience also remembers her roles in unforgettable flicks like Home Alone and The Nightmare before Christmas. These are two movies I am sure you have watched.

 Catherine O’Hara began her journey in realms of acting in 1974. She was in The Second City in Toronto. After a period of 2 years the television series SCTV came up. She became a part of the show. Catherine O’Hara has portrayed a number of versatile characters on the episodes with élan. She has put on the mantle of a game show candidate, a seductress, a stage actress with convincing levels of perfection. Her noteworthy roles on the silver screen include The Last of the High Kings, a film where she played a strong advocate of Irish nationalism. Catherine O’Hara has also done a role in a 2006 movie named For Your Consideration. As a token of her achievement, Catherine was included in the Canadian Walk of Fame. I truly feel Catherine O’Hara has tons of talent that has not been tapped to its full potential. She has tried her hands at voice over acts in her career. In 1970s, she lent her voice for giving life to numerous cartoon characters. This has found favor with the audience and she would not leave this probably. She was hired in the renowned Saturday Night Live program where she was supposed to replace Ann Risley. Due to some unfortunate developments she could not appear on the show. The position ultimately went to Robin Duke.
