As the daughter of Hollywood prominent actress named Goldie Hawn, Kate Garry Hudson has proven that she does not only inherit her mother's stunning look, but also extraordinary talent in acting that Goldie has displayed throughout her career in American film industry. Refused to capitalize on the notability of her mother, she built her own path with persistence in her struggle to embrace worldwide recognition. Fantastically, this striking blonde was able to compile a collection of film awards and also a list of nominations from various reputable award events in a relatively short time. Looking on her accomplishment, it is certain that she really possesses the potentiality to reach what her mother has achieved.
Born on April 19, 1979 in Los Angeles, California, Kate is Goldie's second child with William Louis Hudson, who was one of the members of an American music group named Hudson Brothers.

Finding a suitable agent, she started to join some auditions, including that for "Escape from L.A" (1996). However, she later gave up her role in this action flick when she found out that Russell was included in the cast. "I didn't want to be professionally associated with my dad," she explained. "I just wanted to see if I could do the audition."
Through another audition, Kate made her way to earn her first screen performance in Fox's TV series "Party of Five" (1994-2000). Although she only appeared in one episode entitled "Spring Breaks: Part 1" aired on March 27, 1996, this initial experience strengthened her determination develop a professional acting career in Hollywood.
