Meet Catherine Quirico

Today we’d like to introduce you to Catherine Quirico.

Catherine, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
My professional career began at the age of seven. I’m an Actress, Model, Singer/songwriter, and Journalist. I’ve appeared in various national brand campaigns. Some of my work includes TV commercials and print ads for Toys R Us, Hasbro, American Red Cross, Party City, Bausch & Lomb to name a few. Most recently, I walked in NY, Paris and LA fashion week. As I grew older, I started taking writing more seriously. You can find my bimonthly column “Catherine’s Spiral Mind” in @actionmagazinetaag where I contribute as a writer/editor. As my interests expanded, I began interviewing guests on a podcast, @young_artist_podcast. The podcast includes chats with various Broadway stars. “Promwich”’ a short film where I am both in front of the camera and behind it directing, can be found on my IGTV. As part of my large social media presence, I host a live weekly show bringing in talent from Broadway to frontline doctors fighting Covid-19. Currently, you can find me on Spotify singing my original song “Dear Self “ and a few other show tunes. I love the stage and I have performed in off-Broadway productions in NYC. When I’m not working I spend my time training in acting, singing and dancing.

Has it been a smooth road?
It has not been a smooth road and I don’t believe it will ever be for anyone. The industry is very mentally demanding. I have been in the industry for eight years now and I have learned that it’s heavily based on someone’s appearance. When I was ten, I went in for a modeling audition. This was a huge company so there were a lot of kids my age there as well. When it was my turn, I heard the lady casting whisper to her friend that, “my thighs were too large compared to everyone else’s.” At that time, I was very hurt because I never saw that as a problem. Growing up, I realized the best thing is to be positive no matter the outcome or the hurtful comments that people say. The main struggle is to keep a healthy mindset and to remember who you are as a person.

We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
What I try to do is to stay relevant. If I’m not modeling, I’m podcasting, going live, writing for a magazine or collabing with other industry kids. What sets me apart is my popularity on Instagram where I work with a lot of different brands as a representative. I also display my real personality and not trying to be someone I am clearly not.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
Hollywood is the heart of the industry. So, yes. Hollywood is a great place to start!
