Being married to the star of one of the biggest TV shows in the world is not an easy feat, but doing it while you are a butt-kicking mixed media artist and a poet is even harder! Well, Kate Gorney, however, seems to be making easy work of it, and we can’t help but be a little jealous of this star, to say the least!
Kate Gorney’s Background
Very few people know this, but Kate comes from quite a religious background: her father is actually a retired priest. Kate was born Kathryn Titus Gorney, which she later shortened to Kate. Her mother was a poet, and if you wondered where her poetry talent came from, here is your answer. Kate’s road to stardom was set out pretty well from a young age, and by the time she was 10, she had started acting classes, language instruction classes, and, of course, ballet. From a very young age, Kate was interested in a variety of activities. Before turning 10, she had started taking singing lessons. Although she was well set to get into music, things did not go that way in the end, though.
Another thing that you might not know about Kate is that, from a very young age, Kate had a keen interest in horses. It was mainly because she lived in an area where horse breeding was popular. In her early teens, Kate took horse riding lessons, which later turned to equestrian lessons. She never pursued a career in horse racing, but the physical training did set her up to be one hell of an artist.
Kate had prospects and took her ballet seriously. She was dancing up until high school and was a fellow of the prestigious Ann Arbor Civic Ballet Company. If you know ballet, then you understand that being a fellow of Ann Arbor is really a big deal. After her stint as a ballet dancer, she went further and studied arts at the university. She graduated with a degree in Liberal Arts from George Washington University.

Her appearances in both shows were amazing and got her international acclaim. After the series was done, Kate took a short break and only made another appearance on the big screen in 2014, starring in Bristel Goodman. Besides the splendid acting, Kate is also one heck of a voice-over artist. She showed her vocal prowess when she voiced a character in The Emoji Movie.

The story of how they met for the first time is centered on their love for everything art. The two first met at the University Comedy club, and since then, they have been quite close. The two dated from college and got engaged in 2014.
The couple’s wedding came a year later and was quite a small event. There were a few guests, but the gestures at the event were unique. For instance, the bride’s special wine was served in a squirt gun. The couple is quite a vibe; the pictures she posts on her page with her husband are always lightheaded and positive. The couple is still in love – it is quite evident. TJ was accused of sexual assault by the Daily Mail, and Kate came out in support of her husband. The claims did not carry any substance and never went anywhere.

Although Kate has a lot of money, she is not known to be one to splurge, rather she keeps quite a low profile.

Kate rarely is in the news for the wrong reasons. The last time we saw her in the tabloids for something other than her art was when she was defending her husband. Since then, she has kept quite a low profile and rarely ever gets on the slimy side of showbiz.
Kate, the Feminist
Kate identifies herself as a feminist. It is also quite evident in her art. She has several pieces that seek to address the gender imbalance plaguing the world. An incident that sparked a lot of controversy on Twitter was when a publication had the headline: TJ Miller’s wife makes a name for herself in New York.

It was one of her stands against the treatment of females, especially in the Arts industry.
