which she also executive produced. These earned Heigl "Female Star of the Year" honors at the 2010 ShoWest awards.

Other film credits include Gary Marshall's "New Year's Eve" opposite Jon Bon Jovi for New Line Pictures, "Life As We Know It," opposite Josh Duhamel, directed by Greg Berlanti; the action comedy "Killers," opposite Ashton Kutcher for director Robert Luketic; the Farrelly brothers comedy "The Ringer," co-starring Johnny Knoxville; Steven Soderbergh's critically acclaimed depression-era drama "King of the Hill" and "Under Seige 2: Dark Territory." Her first feature film leading role was in Touchstone Pictures' "My Father the Hero," starring opposite Gerard Depardieu.

Heigl will star in "The Knitting Circle" for HBO Films, executive producing the project with her mother and producing partner, Nancy Heigl, under their Abishag banner, alongside Pine Street Pictures. Craig Wright is writing the screenplay adaptation, based on the best-selling novel by Ann Hood. Abishag also recently announced that they will executive produce an original series, "Trending," for The CW Network. They are partnering with Lakeshore Entertainment and CBS TV Studios on the project. Gren Wells is writing the pilot.

On television, for six seasons, Heigl portrayed 'Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens', the small-town girl constantly battling for respect amongst her peers, on ABC's critically acclaimed drama "Grey's Anatomy." In 2007, Heigl earned a Primetime Emmy Award and a Golden Globe nomination for her performance. 

Born in Washington, DC, but raised in New Canaan, Connecticut, Heigl began her career at the age of nine as a child model. It wasn't long before she graduated to commercial work, which opened the door to auditions for film roles. By age 12, she made her feature debut in "That Night," starring Juliette Lewis and C. Thomas Howell.

Upon graduating high school in 1997, Heigl and her mother moved to Malibu, California, which enabled her to pursue her blossoming acting career more vigorously. She portrayed Rita Hayworth's stand-in in the feature film, "Stand-ins," portrayed the Princess Ilene in a European production of "Prince Valiant," starred in the comedy "Wish Upon a Star," and co-starred opposite Peter Fonda in an updated television version of "The Tempest." She also starred in two horror films, "Bug Buster" and "The Bride of Chucky," with Jennifer Tilly.

In 1999, Katherine Heigl landed a starring role in The WB sci-fi drama series, "Roswell." During the three years of that series, she continued to work in feature films, among them "100 Girls" and "Valentine," a horror film which starred David Boreanaz and Denise Richards. Other television credits include the ABC movie "Romy and Michele: Behind the Velvet Rope," "Vegas Dick," the MTV movie "Wuthering Heights," the Hallmark Channel's "Love Comes Softly," "Evil Never Dies" for TBS, and "Love's Enduring Promise."

In May of 2009, Katherine Heigl and her mother Nancy launched the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation in honor of her older brother, who died much too young in an automobile accident and whose strong, compassionate nature and great love of animals was the cornerstone of their endeavors. The Heigls are using their resources to work directly to address the pet population crises in Los Angeles and across the country.

Toward that goal, the Foundation launched the "Compassion Revolution" in September of 2010, pledging over one million dollars to a variety of low cost and free spay/neuter programs in Los Angeles and surrounding counties, as a key component to reducing the number of animals in shelters. The Foundation also presently funds pet education programs, actively supports pet adoption programs, and fund and supports small dog transport from local kill shelters to both no kill shelters and rescues facilities throughout the country. To date the Foundation has funded the transport of over 4500 animals out of high kill shelters to areas where they are rapidly adopted.
