Kate Mara is an actress who can be seen in the Netflix original series House of Cards. She appeared recently in American Horror Story: Asylum, and has also acted in Entourage, 24, Jack & Bobby, and Nip/Tuck. Her major film credits include Iron Man 2, and 127 Hours, but I first noticed her playing Mississippi in the Josh Radnor written/directed independent film, Happythankyoumoreplease.

Kate is somewhat considered to be NFL royalty as she is the great-granddaughter of Pittsburgh Steelers’ founder Art Rooney and Giants’ founder Timothy Mara. She began acting at an early age and is also a skilled dancer, proficient in jazz, tap, and ballet. Her younger sister, Rooney Mara, is also an actress in the Girlfriend Bracket.
