Now Voyager, the official Kate Mulgrew Fan Club has shut down.
I received the following information about a new club:
I'm Jenn. We all know the KMAS (Kate's official fan club) closed down. Well, the KMFA (Kate Mulgrew Fan Affiliation) opened up! Right now it's online only, and still in it's formative stages, but anyone who wants to join should send a blank e-mail to KateClub@hotmail.com with a subject of "Join KMFA". This is recognized by the KMAS,and everyone is encouraged to join!
Kate Mulgrew stars as Captain Kathryn Janeway, the captain of the Starship U.S.S. Voyager on UPN's popular "Star Trek: Voyager."
Mulgrew grew up in Dubuque, Iowa, the oldest girl in a family of eight. She left home at age 17 and traveled to New York City to study acting. There she enrolled at New York University and was accepted into Stella Adler's Conservatory. At the end of her junior year, Mulgrew left the university to commit herself full time to her craft.
Mulgrew was quickly cast as Mary Ryan (a role she played for two years) on the daytime drama "Ryan's Hope," while simultaneously earning the role of Emily in a production of "Our Town" at the American Shakespeare Festival in Stratford, CT. At the age of 23, Mulgrew was approached by then head of NBC Programming Fred Silverman, who offered her a starring role in a series he had created with her in mind - "Kate Columbo," in which she played the wife of one of TV's most beloved detectives, Lt. Columbo. While a critical success, the series was canceled after two seasons, although it can still be seen in syndication under the title "Kate Loves a Mystery."
She has starred in the feature films "Love Spell: Isolt of Ireland" with Richard Burton, "A Stranger is Watching" with Rip Torn; "Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins"; and "Throw Momma From the Train," with Danny DeVito and Billy Crystal. She returned to television as the star of the drama "Heartbeat," which won a People's Choice Award as Best Drama. Following this, Mulgrew co-starred in the comedy series "Man of the People" alongside actor James Garner. She also starred in the miniseries "The Manions of America" with Pierce Brosnan.
Her episodic television credits include a recurring role as a Boston councilwoman and Sam Malone's love interest on "Cheers"; and "Murphy Brown," for which she won the Tracey Humanitarian Award for her portrayal of an alcoholic anchorwoman.
Mulgrew is the veteran of numerous theatrical productions including "Black Comedy," a play written by Peter Schaeffer; "Titus Andronicus"; "Hedda Gabler"; and "Measure for Measure."
She is the recipient of the 1998 Golden Satellite Award for Best Performance by an actress in a dramatic TV series; and the 24th Annual Saturn Award for Best Genre TV actress. She has just completed production on the UPN movie "Riddler's Moon" shot entirely on location in Luxembourg.
Mulgrew received an Honorary Doctorate of Letters for Artistic Contribution from Seton Hill University. She resides in Los Angeles with her two sons, 15-year-old Ian and 14-year-old Alexander.
