Katharine's ancestry includes Scottish, German, Channel Islander (Guernsey), and English.

Sam Elliott and Katharine Ross in Das Haus des Satans (1978)

Both she and husband Sam Elliott appeared in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969), although they had no scenes together and did not meet until 1978. Elliott had a bit part as a card player in the opening scene, while Ross portrayed Etta Place, the female lead role, alongside male leads Robert Redford and Paul Newman.

Changed her published birth date from January 29, 1940 to January 29, 1943 when she debuted. The mainstream press didn't start reporting her age correctly until the 2010s.
