When you’re an actor as well as a singer, it’s kind of confusing whether to refer yourself as an actor or a singer. However, Katie Lowes does not feel that way! She feels very strongly that she’s ‘an actress who can sing’ rather than a singer who acts! Well, we completely agree that Katie is definitely more of an actress than a singer.
Throughout her terrific career, Katie has managed to make a great name for herself as an extraordinary actress. Lowes who is an NYU graduate from Tisch School of the Arts has had an active acting life since her school days. Lowes has performed in her school theatre and she was also a part of the stage play Four Saints of Mexico. Lowes’ acting career jet-started with the FX series Rescue Me. Since she has made appearances in many TV series including The Sopranos, Without a Trace, NCIS, Ghost Whisperer, Castle, Leverage, and The Closer.
Married to Adam Shapiro for four years now, Lowes is very popular and celebrated as Quinn Perkins from the ABC hit drama series Scandal! But apart from this Lowes is also equally celebrated for her amazing vocal skills. She has exhibited her singing skills in a number of occasions! We say it's high time Lowes has dropped her own album! Given her passion for singing, who knows maybe she’s always been planning it? Come on, what’s all those behind-the-scenes musical choir for?
If you have absolutely no idea what musical choir then here’s a little news for you! As reported by Entertainment Weekly in 2013, Josh Malina captured cast member Katie Lowes singing in a bus ride sing-along. Here’s what Katie Lowes had to say about her singing career when she was asked about it in an interview with Examiner.com.
“I love singing! I was a musical theater girl in high school. We were always singing and dancing around, and just doing little community theaters and high school musicals. Then when I got to NYU, I focused more on drama. I don't call myself a singer who acts. I'm definitely an actor who sings. But I do love it. One of my closest friends from NYU is a singer, Samantha Shelton, and she sings around town at different bars and I back her up for fun. It's the most fun thing ever! I could never do what she does. I could never be a front woman and write songs. But I try to make it so that singing is a part of my life because it's so different from acting. There's no character on top of you. You can't hide behind anything. It's really vulnerable when you're singing in front of people. I think it's probably one of the scariest things I've ever done. So I try to do it as much as I can. I try to do things that freak me out and make me uncomfortable!”
Here’s to wishing that Katie Lowes decides to release an album and kick-start her musical career because Katie is undoubtedly an amazing singer!
