Biography

Sturdy, dependable actress Kathleen Wilhoite adroitly tackled supporting roles in American films from the early '80s (amid her late adolescence) onward. She began with feature work, in pictures of somewhat dubious quality, such as the 1983 exploitationer Private School, the disappointing Sidney Lumet thriller The Morning After (1986), and the disastrous superhero saga Brenda Starr (1993). Wilhoite scored, however, on the small screen with three memorable series portrayals: Rosalie Hendrickson on L.A. Law, Chloe Lewis on ER, and Liz Danes on Gilmore Girls. She returned to features in 2007, with a supporting role in the quirky Michael Douglas comedy The King of California. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
