Kathryn Prescott Biography – 5 Fast Facts You Need To Know
1. Kathryn Prescott is a Twin
When Kathryn Prescott was born on 4 June 1991 in the London district of Southgate in England, she was not born alone. About 6 minutes later her twin sister Megan was born.
The twin sisters have a younger brother. The sisters attended Palmers Green High School for their primary education, then went to St. John’s Senior School for their secondary education. Twins are known for loving the same things, and it was no different for Kathryn and Megan. As children, they developed a passion for many things, including art and acting. To hone their acting skills, they attended weekly theatre classes where they met their future Skins costar, Lily Loveless.
2. The Prescott Sisters have acted like twins in a couple of films.
Kathryn Prescott and her twin sister Megan started their acting careers together. They made their debut as twin sisters Amy and Charlotte Wilcox in an episode of the BBC soap opera Doctors in 2008. When they started together, it was only fair that they made their breakthrough together, and they did. Their big breakthrough came when they played the twins Emily and Katie Fitch, who were part of the “second generation” in the third season of the teen drama TV series Skins.
They repeated their roles in Season 4 but skipped the next one due to the film format that limits each generation to two seasons. In 2007, however, they returned for the finale of Season 7, Emily (Kathryn’s character) quickly won the hearts of fans due to her complex lesbian relationship with her friend Noami Campbell (Lily Loveless) and the tense relationship that existed between her and her twin sister Katie Fitch.
3. While Kathryn went on to pursue a Hollywood career, her sister drifted towards writing and bodybuilding.
After the curtain fell on Skins, the sisters went their separate ways in terms of their careers. Kathryn continued to make guest appearances on TV shows such as Monroe (2011), Casualty (2012), Bedlam (2012), and Being Human (2013).
In the two-part episode “Skins Fire (2013)” she resumed her role as Emily Fitch. In 2014 she had a recurring role in CW’s Reign. In the same year, she played the lead role in a series of short films. Her next big appearance on a small screen came as the title character in MTV’s drama Finding Carter, which was canceled after two seasons. Kathryn’s next television appearances were to include guest roles in The Dovekeepers and The Son as well as a recurring role in 24: Legacy.
From 2017 Kathryn Prescott became more active in the film. Some of her film credits are Fun Mom Dinner (2017), To the Bone (2017), Polaroid (2018), and Dude (2018).
On the other hand, her sister Megan was worried about her future as an actress and shifted her focus to writing instead. However, she occasionally shows unpopular movies. Megan Prescott now concentrates more on her career as a bodybuilder. She now has a lot of muscles and does not look like she did when she was Katie Fitch.
