Kate McKinnon doesn't like talking about herself all that much.
The chameleonic star of Saturday Night Live is able to slip into whatever character the venerated late-night sketch series throws her way, be it Justin Bieber or Hillary Clinton or Cecilia Giménez (you know, the elderly Spanish woman whose failed attempt at restoring the famed Ecce Homo fresco painting in 2012 became a global laughing stock), with an enviable ease. As she continues to rack up Emmy nominations—she's been nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series five times since joining the NBC series in 2012, taking home the trophy twice in 2016 and 2017—and ventures further into leading lady status on the big screen, our interest in the woman behind the hilarious characters has only grown.
But go ahead and ask yourself, what do you really know about Kate McKinnon. Not much, right? That, dear readers, is by design.
