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.

Shay Mitchell & More Freeform Stars Guess Book Titles In Exclusive 'Magic of Storytelling' Video - Watch!

Shay Mitchell and Katherine McNamara are showing off their favorite books in these exclusive shelfies.

The two Freeform stars, along with Sasha Pieterse, Vanessa Marano, Katie Leclerc, Cierra Ramirez, Emeraude Toubia, and Sherri Saum, posed for the pics to support the Magic of Storytelling campaign, which aims to inspire families’ imaginations, cultivate a lifelong love of reading in kids, and bring books to underserved communities across the country.

For Shay, reading was a big part of her childhood and is still very important to her.

Shadowhunters star Kat, selected “Bud, Not Buddy” by Christopher Paul Curtis for her shelfie — a book she loves to read because it allows her to escape to different worlds and learn so much about other people’s lives.

If you didn’t know, Disney and ABC have teamed up again with First Book, and are aiming to donate over one million books this year to the nonprofit, which provides new books to educators and organizations serving children from low-income families by the end of March!
