Katherine Moennig plays "Shane
McCutcheon" a hairdresser and the resident heartthrob who "gets all the
girls all the time."
Kate - born December 29, 1977 in Philadelphia Pennsylvania - to a mother who
was a dancer on Broadway and a father who is a violin maker, moved to New
York City at the age of 18 to study acting. Supporting herself through a
modeling career, Moennig always had a passion for acting and has performed
on stage with cousin Gwyneth Paltrow.
Fans know Kate best for her role as "Jacqueline 'Jake' Pratt" on the WB's
Young Americans. Katherine Moennig has most recently appeared in the feature
films "The Shipping News", "Love The Hard Way" and "Invitation to a
Suicide". Her television credits include the short-lived series Young
Americans, guest spots on Law & Order and Law & Order:SVU, and the lead
actress in the music video "Is Anybody Home" for the Canadian band Our Lady
On stage, she has appeared in "As You like It", "Comedy of Art", "The Theory
of Total Blame" and "Morning in the City" at the Williamstown Theatre
Two Shane scenes made it onto TVGuide.com's Best Same Sex Kisses:
10. Shane and Cherie, The L Word 2004
When androgynous sexpot Shane slouches into a room, pheromones are on high
alert. This hot hairdresser found her sizzling match in Cherie, the randy
wife of an L.A. film industry honcho. Shane and stiletto-heeled Cherie lock
lips (and other anatomical parts) on a beauty-salon recliner that surely
never saw such cutting-edge action before. "It was my favorite kiss,"
declares Katherine Moennig (Shane), who's smooched a peck of pretty women on
Showtime's lesbian drama. 11. Shane and Carmen, The L Word 2005
Latina DJ Carmen and Shane make beautiful music in a sound room, leading
Carmen to think she's found her soul mate. She doesn't know Shane's a
love-'em-and- leave-'em type of gal who likes her love songs short and
spicy. It wasn't hard to act turned on, says Sarah Shahi (Carmen). "Kate
[Moennig] wears [DuWop] Lip Venom lip gloss. When you kiss her, your lips
start tingling. That way when I look at her, I don't have to do much."
Hmm... we'll have to pick up a tube of that stuff!
