1955 -


Kate Mulgrew is an American actress, most famous for her role in Star Trek: Voyager. She was born in Dubuque, Iowa on April 29, 1955 and is the second oldest of 8 siblings.

Kate Mulgrew has performed in 23 plays, 9 movies, 30 television shows, 6 audio books, and 1 television documentary. One of her first roles on television was of older daughter Mary Ryan on the soap opera Ryan's Hope. She would become a fan favorite and would be associated with the show long after it was canceled.

During her time on the soap, Mulgrew became pregnant. As an unmarried woman, she placed her child for adoption. Her pregnancy was written into the story line, and Mulgrew gave birth in 1977 and left the show Ryan’s Hope soon after, returning several different times between 1983 and 1989.

Among her television guest roles was as Hillary Wheaton, a Canadian anchorwoman wrestling with alcoholism, on an episode of Murphy Brown.

She is also well-remembered for starring in the short-lived 1970s series Mrs. Columbo (also known as Kate Loves a Mystery among other titles).

She played Kathryn Janeway on the science fiction television series Star Trek: Voyager from 1995 to 2001, earning her greatest popular success to date.

Something of a Katharine Hepburn lookalike, she continues to star in a one-woman play called Tea at Five, a monologue reminiscence based on Hepburn's memoir Me: Stories of My Life. Tea at Five is also available as an audio recording.

Kate Mulgrew won the Saturn Award for "Best TV Actress" in 1998 and the Golden Satellite Award for "Best Actress in a TV series drama" in 1998. She was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for "Best Dramatic Actress" in 1979.

Mulgrew's husband, Tim Hagan, was the Democratic party's nominee for the office of governor of Ohio in the 2002 gubernatorial election. Hagan lost to incumbent Robert A. Taft II.

Mulgrew was reunited with her biological daughter in 2001.
