As a child, Kathy was lucky to be raised in two places, including New Mexico, where she was brought up in a Quaker family – she hasn’t mentioned any siblings. Baker is 69 years old as of early 2020.

Baker attended her high school in Millbrae at the Mills High school and matriculated in 1968. During the early 70s, she joined the California Institute of Arts where she studied acting. Her French-born mother influenced her to join the University of California (at Berkeley) from where she graduated with a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in French.

Later on Baker traveled to Paris, where she studied haute cuisine at the Condon Bleu, and went back to the States to become a pastry chef. However, she hadn’t realized how strongly she wanted to pursue an acting career.

Baker’s Career Beginning and Rise to Stardom

Baker had aspired to be an actress since she was a child, influenced by her drama instructor, Allen Knight, to develop an interest in acting. At the age of five, she had already begun acting at a kid’s theatre in Albuquerque, but however, only started her professional career as an actor in her thirties.)

Kathy started acting on the stage of the Magic Theatre, San Francisco where she appeared in several Sam Shepard-plays, where she was still performing  when she got a break in 1983’s “Fool for Love,” an off-Broadway production that got her an Obie Award as well as a Theater World Award (1984.)

In 1984 and 1986, Kathy took a big step in her career life when she performed two of her most iconic performances: “Desire Under the Elms” and “Aunt Dan and Lemon” respectively.

Her success with these performances inspired her to indulge in the epic historical drama genre, assuming the role of Louise Shepard in 1983’s “The Right Stuff.” By 1987, Kathy’s name was one of the most recognized in the acting profession, and was invited to feature in the critically acclaimed thriller-drama film, ‘Street Smart”, bagging a Boston Society of Film Critic Award.

Kathy’s recognition drove her to star in many other films, including “Dad” of 1989, “Edward Scissorhands” (1990), “Jac Knife” of 1989, and the 1990’s “Mister Frost.”

1992-1996 was one of Kathy’s peaks in her career, as she featured in all four seasons of David E. Kelley’s “Picket Fences” that aired on CBS. Her role as Dr Jill Brock in this drama series won her three Emmy Awards, and got her crowned as one of the world’s best actresses when it comes to television drama series.

Over the years, Kathy has made appearances in many series such as “Medium (2005-2010), “Big Time in Hollywood, FL” (2015), “Sister Cities” of 2016, and 2018’s “Paterno” among others. Her most notable films include “Nine Lives” (2005), “Last Chance Harvey,” and “The Jane Austen Book Club.”
