Hometown: Los Angeles, Calif.

How You Know Her: The daughter of '70s pop star David Cassidy, Katie is nothing like her father: She's still relevant today. (Zing! Okay, we didn't mean it, David. Relax.) With numerous TV credits to her name, Katie has already made a seamless transition into Hollywood with roles in ClickWhen a Stranger Calls and Taken. She joins the long line of beautiful young women terrorized by Freddy Krueger's scissor-like fingers in the Nightmare on Elm Street remake, in theaters tomorrow.

Parting With the Partridge: "My first few jobs, people were like, 'Oh, she only got hired because she's so-and-so's daughter.' Sure, it does help you get into a room, but at the end of the day, you have to be able to deliver and you have to be talented. They're not going to hire me because my dad is David Cassidy, who was famous in the '70s." —Collider
