Cathy Haase is an American stage and film actress, writer, and educator. She is a native New Yorker who attended the High School of Performing Arts and is a lifetime member of the Actors Studio.
She attended Franconia College in New Hampshire and graduated summa cum laude in Theater and Film from City University of New York in 2011. She has taught acting at the School of Visual Arts and City College in New York City.
In the early 1980s, she lived in Frankfurt, Germany where she was one of the founding members of the English Theater Frankfurt. She then moved to West Berlin where she became part of the emerging film, music and video scene acting in many projects. She played the lead role in "Schluckauf", the last film of Roland Klick.
She returned to New York where she became a member of the Actors Studio. Her first important film role in the United States was that of the stripper Danny Lee in the independent film production The Kill-Off (1989), based on the Jim Thompson novel. The film was directed by Maggie Greenwald. Haase later worked for the same director in The Ballad of Little Jo (1993) as Mrs. Addie where she met and became friends with Ian McKellen. She made numerous other film appearances, including the tough-talking bartender in Another 48 Hrs. (1990), directed by Walter Hill.
She said, "I'd love to have been one of those Hitchcock blondes. Each female performance seems very original and organic yet very poised and stylized and graceful -- iconic, I suppose, in a way."
Her book, Acting for Film was first published by Allworth Press in 2003. It is an instructional book for actors, writers, teachers, and directors.
