The roles that initially raised her to stardom are as Clary Fray in the supernatural drama TV show “Shadowhunters” and as Mia Smoak in “Arrow”. 

Even though Katherine has an immense talent for acting, it’s not the only thing that helped her amass a large fan base rather quickly – she is also considered one of the most beautiful actresses in the industry.  

Considering this, it’s not much of a surprise that her love life is often the target of Hollywood headlines. 

So does Katherine have a boyfriend, and if so, who is it?

Who is Katherine McNamara?

Katherine Grace McNamara is an American actress born in Kansas City on November 22, 1995.

McNamara began her career ‘locally’ – she was part of a motion picture production in Kansas City. Her early projects were “Matchmaker Mary” and the independent short film “Get Off My Porch.”

Before taking on the role that would make her famous, McNamara made regular guest appearances on shows like “Law & Order: SVU,” “30 Rock,” and “Drop Dead Diva.”

In 2015 McNamara received great news as ABC announced that she was chosen for the lead in “Shadowhunters.”

This show was made as a television adaptation of the famous Cassandra Clare’s book series ‘The Mortal Instruments.’

After her appearance on “Shadowhunters,” McNamara co-starred in “The Maze Runner” and its sequel “Runner: The Scorch Trials” as Sonya.

She was also cast in the seventh season of “Arrow” where she portrayed Mia Smolak, a recurring character at the moment, but was later enrolled in the main cast when the eighth season began.

Apart from her acting career, McNamara is also a singer, but she mostly does songs that are a part of the movie she’s in. As an example, she sang “Wait for You,” which was played alongside the end credits in a movie called “A Sort of Homecoming.”

Katherine Found Herself a Quarantine Boyfriend

When quarantine started, McNamara was lucky enough to find a partner that suited her in the most unusual way.

The partner was Bob – a training dummy that came into her life on March 17, 2020. 

She quickly introduced him to her fans followers on social media platforms such as Instagram and Twitter. 

Katherine joked about Bob being her boyfriend and she would often post hilarious pictures of the two of them ‘hanging out’ together. She explained that Bob is a bit timid and that he isn’t much of a talker – although, he is a damn good listener. 

On her Instagram, we can see numerous photos of her and Bob watching a movie together or working out. 

Is Katherine McNamara Currently Dating Anyone?

Unlike many young actresses, Katherine McNamara isn’t very vocal about her personal life, which includes her relationship status. 

One of her boyfriends that the public knows of was an American actor, Joel Courtney. The two dated almost a decade ago, in 2011, but the relationship didn’t last very long. 

Next, she moved on to the actor Pierson Fode. They started seeing each other in 2016, but this relationship had a similar conclusion as the first one. 

From that point on, Katherine’s love life remained a mystery. However, there were certain rumours about her dating her co-star from “Shadowhunters,” Will Tudor.

McNamara showed her love for Will in her birthday message to him via Twitter and Instagram, “Happy birthday to the one and only @willtudor1! Even though our adventures were limited this year, we still somehow managed to make a few silly spontaneous (and safe) memories nonetheless.”

These rumours still remain just that – rumours. There is no real evidence that McNamara is dating Tudor, or anyone else for that matter.
