Caitriona Balfe is now known as the star of the series “Alien” about a lost military nurse between the worlds, and few people know that in the past the girl became the first Irish model to appear on the world stage. Her photos graced the covers of “Vogue” and “Harper’s Bazaar”, and now Katrina is one of the most popular actresses on TV projects and a frequent guest in the nominations for the Golden Globe Award.
Childhood and adolescence
Caitriona Balfe was born on October 4, 1979, in the Irish city of Monahan, Ulster. The father served as a sergeant in the police, the mother worked as a marriage agent. In addition to the girl, there were six children in the family, two of whom were foster children. They lived in the village of Tedavnet, not far from Monahan.
Katrina’s desire for the stage manifested itself in her early childhood: from the age of 7 she worked in a youth theater studio. The first role the girl played was Mr. Bumble, a fat, greedy, and brazen official from the Oliver Twist story.
Sister Deirdre saw in Katrina’s beauty and natural grace, so she persuaded to try her hand at modeling. Balf refused: she did not want to turn into a doll, which is painted and dressed at will. Wanting to build an acting career, at the age of 17 the girl entered the drama department of the Dublin Institute of Technology and left her native village for the first time.
Caitriona Balfe Fashion
In the capital of Ireland, Catherine was waiting for an eventful independent life, the turning point in her biography was 1999. During the Easter holidays, the girl worked part-time in a supermarket as a food processor for people with multiple sclerosis. One day a man approached her and asked if she was thinking of going on the podium. He left a business card of the largest Irish modeling agency “Assets”.
The next few months were training for Katrina: she participated in shows of local designers, filmed for the covers of Dublin magazines. It is possible that Balf would have remained a mid-range model if she had not been noticed in the Ford Model – the leading American agency.
Kenzo’s 30th birthday was the debut major event in Katrina’s fashion career. All top models who have ever worked with the brand took part in the anniversary show: for example, an Irishwoman followed Iman on the catwalk. However, Balf managed to stand out among the famous beauties. Snow-white skin, a dense physique for the model (at a height of 177 cm Balf weighed 60 kg), light blue eyes, and a wide smile – the leading houses wanted to wear their collections for Katrina. But Calvin Klein Inc. turned out to be faster, signing a one-year contract with the girl.
According to Balf in an interview, the first year in the modeling business was exhausting, I managed to sleep only on the road between filming and shows, and during the day I had to stay on energy and caffeine. But the result was worth it: in Milan, Katrina represented Miu Miu, in Paris – Chanel, Givenchy and Gucci.
Here, in the United States, Katrina gained wings, becoming the first Irish “angel” of Victoria’s Secret. Balf joked that she was perhaps “the whitest” angel “in the brand’s history.” In lingerie, the girl paraded side by side with top models Heidi Klum, Gisele Bündchen, Tyra Banks. In the top 20 most popular models in the world, 29-year-old Caitriona Balfe announced the end of her career:
Caitriona Balfe Movies
As a model, the Irishwoman starred in the fashion film “The Devil Wears Prada” (2006) as an employee of the magazine “Runway”.After finishing her career as a model in 2009, Katrina moved to Los Angeles, where she spent many months improving her acting skills.
In “Escape Plan” (2013) with Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger in the lead roles, the picture finally spoke. She played Jessica Mayer, a CIA agent who hires a Stallone character to inspect the prison security system.
In the breaks between filming, the girl participated in the creation of music videos. Balf can be seen in the video version of the song “First Fires” by British artist Bonobo, as well as Phoenix in the video “Chloroform”, directed by Sofia Coppola. The break in the film was shot – in September 2013, Katrina was approved for the lead role in the series “Alien”. Claire Randall is key in the Irish woman’s filmography.
The series is based on books by American writer Diana Gabaldon. The actions of “Aliens” take place in two times – in 1945 and 1743. In the “real”, military nurse Claire Randall and her husband Frank go on a joint vacation to Scotland. Under mystical circumstances, Claire falls into the “past”, where Frank’s double, Jack, is a villain. Jamie Fraser (played by Sam Queen) protects the girl from the wrath of the ruler. Against the background of the war between the British and the wild mountaineers, the love line of Claire and Jamie develops.
“Alien” allowed Katrina to show her full acting potential. She has won Saturn Awards, People’s Choice Awards, BAFTA Scotland Awards, Oscar Wilde Awards as “Best TV Actress”. In 2014, Entertainment Weekly named Balf “Breakthrough of the Year” and “Woman of the Year.” A year later, the girl was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Performance in a Television Series, but the award went to Taraji Hanson of Empire.
Simultaneously with the filming of “Alien” in 2016, Katrina appeared in the film “Financial Monster” starring George Clooney and Julia Roberts. Balf tried on the image of a spokeswoman for the bankrupt Ibis.
Caitriona Balfe Personal life
In 2002, Katrina met with the guitarist of the American rock band Radio 4 Dave Milone. In the tight schedule of the model, there was time to star in several clips next to her lover: “He is a Chemical” and “The Damage Done”. Presumably, the couple broke up in 2007, right after the release of the second video.
In 2008, Balf was caught in an affair with screenwriter Jamie Moss, creator of “Kings of the Streets”, “X-Men: First Class”. After 3 years, the lovers broke up.
After the release of the series “Alien”, fans suspected Katrina of an affair with Sam Queen, a partner on the set. The rumors were fueled by the actors themselves, addressing each other as “husband” and “wife”, “Mr.” and “Mrs.” in posts on Twitter, posting ambiguous photos on Instagram. Fans were preparing for the fact that a new couple will be formed soon, but in 2018 a major event in Balf’s personal life took place – an engagement.
Tony McGill was elected. The couple hid the novel hard, saying in 2015: “We are not a couple.” But at the Golden Globe Awards in 2018, Katrina appeared with a ring on her ring finger. It is known that Tony made an offer during the New Year holidays.
