Catherine O’Hara was the sixth of seven children in a family of Irish descent, and was raised Catholic. She went to the Burnhamthorpe Collegiate Institute in Toronto, and there met Robin Duke, who played an instrumental role in her pursuit of an acting career.

O’Hara debuted in an episode of “The Wayne & Shuster Show” in 1975, and then appeared in 50 episodes of a popular TV series “Second City TV” from 1976 to 1979. In 1980, she played alongside Donald Sutherland and Suzanne Somers in “Nothing Personal”, and later in 27 episodes of “SCTV Network” from 1981 to 1982. O’Hara appeared in “The Last Polka” (1985), in Martin Scorsese’s Golden Globe-nominated “After Hours” (1985) with Griffin Dunne, Rosanna Arquette, and Verna Bloom, and in “Heartburn” (1986) starring Meryl Streep and Jack Nicholson. In 1988, Catherine played in Tim Burton’s Oscar-winning “Beetlejuice” with Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, and Michael Keaton, while she ended the decade with a role in “I, Martin Short, Goes Hollywood” in 1989. Her net worth was well established.

O’Hara played in several blockbuster movies in the early ‘90s, including Warren Beatty’s Oscar-winning “Dick Tracy” (1990) with Beatty, Madonna, and Al Pacino. She also played Kate McCallister in Chris Columbus’ Oscar-nominated comedy “Home Alone” (1990) alongside Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, and Daniel Stern, which grossed over $530 million worldwide and helped O’Hara to increase her net worth significantly. Catherine also portrayed Kate in “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York” in 1992, and lent her voice to the Oscar-nominated “The Nightmare Before Christmas” in 1993, which also grossed a lot of money and improved O’Hara’s wealth. In the mid-‘90s, O’Hara had important parts in Ron Howard’s Oscar-nominated “The Paper” (1994) alongside Michael Keaton, Glenn Close, and Robert Duvall, and in Oscar-nominated “Wyatt Earp” (1994) starring Kevin Costner, Dennis Quaid, and Gene Hackman.

O’Hara was quite busy in the early 2000s, as she played in such movies as the Golden Globe Award-nominated “Best in Show” (2000) with Fred Willard and Eugene Levy, “Orange County” (2002) starring Colin Hanks and Jack Black, and in Christopher Guest’s Oscar-nominated comedy “A Mighty Wind” (2003). She continued with “Surviving Christmas” (2004) alongside Ben Affleck, Christina Applegate, and James Gandolfini, “The Wool Cap” (2004) starring William H. Macy, and in Oscar-winning “A Series of Unfortunate Events” (2006) with Jim Carrey, Jude Law, and Meryl Streep. By the end of the 2000’s, Catherine appeared in “Penelope” (2006) with Christina Ricci, James McAvoy, and Reese Witherspoon, then she starred in “For Your Consideration” (2006) and played in Sam Mendes’ “Away We Go” (2009), adding further to her net worth.

In 2010, O’Hara played alongside Claire Danes, Julia Ormond, and David Strathairn in Golden Globe-winning “Temple Grandin”, and then she gave her voice to various characters in Tim Burton’s Oscar-nominated “Frankenweenie” in 2012. She currently appears in such TV series as “What Lives Inside” (2015- ), “Schitt’s Creek” (2015- ), and “A Series of Unfortunate Events”, which will be aired from 2017, also adding to her net worth.

Regarding her personal life, Catherine O’Hara married production designer Bo Welch in 1992 and has two sons with him.

Looks like we don't have Catherine O'Hara salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1 After securing Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern for Home Alone (1990), Chris Columbus felt confident enough to cast actors who were his heroes growing up, like O'Hara after seeing her work on SCTV (1976) as well as John Heard, and Tim Curry and Rob Schneider on Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (1992) because they were all open to the films.

Others honored in this set are Jim Carrey, Mike Myers, Martin Short, and Olivier Guimond. Price of each stamp on day of issue was 85¢.

7 Has a congenital condition called "Situs Inversus" in which the organs of the chest and abdomen are arranged in a perfect mirror image reversal of the normal positioning. Most people with situs inversus have no medical symptoms or complications resulting from the condition and it only occurs in less than 1 in 10,000.

#Quote
1 I think the best dramatic actors know how to tap into their character's humor. I have more respect for those who take their comedy seriously.
2 I started working in the 1970s, when women's lib was a daily subject. A lot of what women were fighting for then is a given now. In comedy it has gotten so much better. So many women are creating their own material. If anything, I think more about being older than being a woman in comedy. (2015)
3 I think everyone is born funny. Sadly, some lives beat it out of them. I don't know what allows someone to keep being funny and actually make a career of it. I was encouraged to see the humor in life and have always been around people who think funny, but I know some hilarious people whose sense of humor saved them from their lives.
4 [on doing voiceover work with Martin Short in 'Frankenweenie'] In a live-action film, the focus is on the set and the lighting and everything that's there. In animation, it's all right in the headphones. As Marty says, it uses a different set of muscles. In this case, we were given some beautiful illustrations to guide us, and I think we just tried to honor that.
5 I never went to the prom or anything. I got asked by a couple of weird guys, but no one I wanted to show up at a formal with. Mostly I thought about being an actress. I wasn't conscious of wanting to be a comic actress. I wasn't really funny or anything, and I didn't think about it. It wasn't supposed to be ladylike for a girl to joke. To this day, I've found that it doesn't matter what a guy looks like if he's really funny. His sense of humor makes him attractive. On the other hand, you don't hear men saying, "No she's not pretty, but is she ever funny!"
6 Night time really is the best time to work. All the ideas are there to be yours because everyone is asleep.
7 I know. I'm lazy. But I made myself a New Years resolution that I would write myself something really special. Which means I have 'til December, right?
8 I think the success of my work stems from being truthful.
9 I lived in LA for a few months. It seemed like no one there had parents. Or if they did have parents, they would deny it.
10 I'm pretty much a good Catholic girl at heart and I believe in family. I also have a basic belief that God takes care of me. I believe in prayer, even though I'm not that religious. I just have that foundation from my family. I mean when you think that you're just a human being and one of God's creatures, you can't take anything that seriously.
