In the most recent episode, The Theater Podcast with Alan Seales met Katrina Bowden!
Since making a name for herself in the comedy world after starring in 30 Rock, this actress has turned to other genres, sharing that she “still loves a challenge”, and has found it with happiness exactly that while working on his new film.
Katrina Bowden is an actress you may remember best as Cerie, Liz Lemon’s distraught assistant on the NBC sitcom 30 Rock, or as Flo Fulton in more than 217 episodes (so far) of the CBS soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful.
