Kat Harley was born and raised in Poznan, Poland, where she took courses in acting, ballroom dancing, and defense/firearms training. She participated in school and community theater productions, and competed in national ballroom dancing events. She was first featured in a Polish TV movie, "Powrot do Polski" (1988).
After coming to the United States in September 1989, Kat had a lucrative career in the investment banking industry, but something was missing. In 2009, she was offered a supporting role in the music video, "Just Watch Me", and later, in "I've Got A Secret". This led her to leave the investment business, and become a freelance translator, which gave her the freedom to pursue a career in acting.
Her occasional background performances turned into a regular occurrence at the end of 2014. The following year, Kat started taking acting classes again, auditioning, and landed a few small roles since.
