Shadowhunters' Katherine McNamara Never Intended to Get Into Acting!

Shadowhunters' Katherine McNamara Never Intended to Get Into Acting!

Here’s something interesting about Shadowhunters star Katherine McNamara that you might not know… she went to college for finance and business and never intended to get into acting!

The 21-year-old actress graduated high school at age 14 and gradated summa cum laude from Drexel University at age 17, years before starting her work on the hit Freeform series.

Kat did a new photo shoot and interview for our online magazine RAW to promote the season finale of Shadowhunters, which airs TONIGHT (August 14).

Katherine told RAW that having a degree in business administration has helped her manage her own business affairs and make sure no one tries to slide anything by her.

“That’s why it’s nice to have the knowledge. I never intended to be an actor. I wanted to go into finance. I wanted to be the CFO of a multinational company, to run my own business, be a financial adviser, work on Wall Street or something,” she said.
