      Kate Lyn Sheil began acting in the fourth grade, playing Medea in "Theseus and the Minotaur," and continued through high school. When she found out she had been accepted in to New York University's Tisch School of the Arts to study acting, Sheil didn't apply anywhere else. After college, Sheil took a couple of years off of acting, but continued to be a presence in the New York City film community. She worked at legendary Kim's video with Alex Ross Perry, who would direct her in what would be her first feature film, "Impolex" (2009). A 'mumblecore' film set at the end of WWII, the film didn't receive much attention, but the kudos it did gather invariably noted Sheil's performance as a vision of the girlfriend that the lead character left behind. This entrée into the 'mumblecore' world connected Sheil with filmmakers and actors like Amy Seimitz and Ti West, and she performed in a number of mumblecore films, including "Green" (2011), directed by Sophia Takal, and "Silver Bullets" (2011) directed by Joe Swanberg. In 2014, Sheil received her most exposure until that time, when she appeared in the second season of "House of Cards" (Netflix, 2013-), as a confidant of the only witness to Francis Underwood's deceitful plotting. In 2016, she starred in Steven Soderbergh's series adaptation of his film "The Girlfriend Experience" (Starz, 2016-) and played herself in the experimental film "Kate Plays Christine" (2016), one of the most talked-about films of the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.
