Kathryn Susan Morris (born January 28, 1969) is an American actress, best known for her lead role as Detective Lilly Rush in the CBS series Cold Case.
Morris was born in 1969 in Cincinnati, Ohio. She grew up Christian in Windsor Locks, Connecticut with her parents, Stanley, a Bible scholar, and Joyce, an insurance agent, and five siblings before moving away. From age 6 to 17, Morris and her family traveled the southern 'Bible Belt' as a gospel group called 'The Morris Code'. The group was mainly made up of Kathryn's father and three (out of five) of her siblings.
She attended two colleges in the Philadelphia area, Northeastern Christian Junior College and Temple University. After studying theatre in high school, she was involved in a hit-and-run collision while on her way to her first acting gig, a Japanese music video based on the musical Grease. She still made it to the gig and that's when she knew she was going to be an actress.
On April 8, 2013, Morris announced that she and her partner Johnny Messner were expecting twins. She gave birth to twin boys, Jameson and Rocco. Jameson and Rocco were diagnosed with autism when they were 3 years old. In October 2021, Morris launched The Savants; an initiative to "revolutionize how the world lives on and off the spectrum".
Morris' first appearance in the 1991 television movie Long Road Home was a minor one. Several other small parts were followed, including a small part as a psychiatric patient in the Oscar-winning As Good as It Gets. Annalisa "Stinger" Lindstrom, the actress of Pensacola's Wings of Gold, appeared in the television series Pensacola: Wings of Gold in 1997 for two seasons. Morris continued to work in film (especially ones directed by Rod Lurie) and spent a short time as Najara in 1999.
Steven Spielberg starred her in two consecutive films after seeing her in the film The Contender (which DreamWorks released). In A.I., she appeared as a rock star. The director cut artificial intelligence, which was requiring Morris to attend intense singing and guitar lessons, which was particularly painful for her. In the Minority Report, she portrayed Tom Cruise's narcotic wife.
In 2003, Morris appeared in the CBS drama series Cold Case as the lead detective. In Lurie's drama Resurrecting the Champ (2006), she appeared in Mindhunters and Paycheck, opposite Ben Affleck, and more recently as the journalist wife of Josh Hartnett. Morris appeared in the film Cougars, Inc., which was released in 2011. Morris appeared in The Sweeter Side of Life, a romantic comedy on the Hallmark Channel in 2012.
