She would later reprise the role for the second season’s finale and in the latter half of the show’s fourth season. Also in 2001, Kirshner played Catherine Wyler, The Cruelest Girl in School, in Not Another Teen Movie. The character is primarily a spoof of Kathryn Merteuil (played by Sarah Michelle Gellar) in Cruel Intentions, and was partially based on Mackenzie Siler (played by Anna Paquin) from She’s All That.

Kirshner will star in 30 Days of Night: Dark Days which began filming in the fall of 2009.[6] In 2010, she was cast as Isobel Flemming, a guest role on The Vampire Diaries.[5]

In October 2008, after 7 years in production,[7] Kirshner published the book I Live Here,[8] which she co-produced with ex-Adbusters staffers Paul Shoebridge and Michael Simons,[9] as well as writer James MacKinnon. In the book, four different groups of women and children refugees from places such as ChechnyaJuárezBurma and Malawi tell their life stories. The book features original material from well-known comic and graphic artists including Joe Sacco and Phoebe Gloeckner. It was published in the U.S. by Random House/Pantheon. It was supported logistically by Amnesty International, which will receive proceeds from the book. After the release of the book, the Center for International Studies at MIT invited Kirshner to run a 4-week course on I Live Here in January 2009.[10]

Kirshner was ranked #43 on the Maxim Hot 100 Women of 2002.[11] She and Beverly Polcyn were nominated for Best Kiss at the 2002 MTV Movie Awards for Not Another Teen Movie.[12]

In July 2007, Uh Huh Her, an electropop duo consisting of Hailey and Camila Grey, released an EP entitled I See Red; over a year later they released their first album Common Reaction.

Hailey also co-wrote the Shakira hit song Don’t Bother for her 2007 hit album Oral Fixation Vol. 2.

In September 2008, Showtime announced Hailey will star in a “pilot presentation spinoff” The Farm[4] of The L Word, to be written and produced by Ilene Chaiken, creator and executive producer of The L Word.[5] It was announced in April 2009 that the show would not be picked up by Showtime.

I hope Angelina's not mad at me. I have to say this really makes up for the time I was on the Homecoming Court in high school with my boyfriend (yes I had one) and he won and I didn't. So thanks to everyone. I'll try and keep up my hotness.”[9]

Katherine Sian Moennig (Pronounced ‘meh-nig’) (born December 29, 1977)[2] is an American actress known for her role as Shane McCutcheon on The L Word, as well as Jake Pratt on Young Americans. She recently starred as Dr. Miranda Foster on CBS Three Rivers.

 

Born in PhiladelphiaPennsylvania, she is the daughter of Broadway dancer Mary Zahn and violin maker William Moennig.[3] She is also the niece of actress Blythe Danner and cousin of Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow.[1]

Moennig is of GermanScottish and Irish descent.[4]

Although there has been much speculation surrounding Moennig’s sexual orientation due to the on-screen lesbian and genderqueer roles she has taken, Moennig refuses to talk about her sexuality because she says that having a personal life is a sacred thing in Hollywood.

However, the New York Post’s Page Six reported sighting Moennig accompanied by Francesca Gregorini in April 2005 at a party for Paper Magazine’s Beautiful People issue,[5] and herL Word costar Jennifer Beals also muddied the issue in an interview with The Advocate in which Beals cited Moennig along with several out lesbians as advisors on Beals’ portrayal of Bette Porter. [5] A rumour that Moennig dated Clementine Ford after their collaboration in The L Word was denied by Ford in a Diva Magazine interview in 2009.[6]

Moennig has several tattoos: the number 2 (her life number in numerology) on her right ring finger, a small orange square on her left hand, a “cross” on her left wrist (which was previously the letter “K”), a swallow on her right triceps (she got it after having a dream that she had a tattoo of a bird on her right triceps), audere est facere (“to dare is to do” in Latin) on her left triceps, what appears to be ivy along her right side, “Mary” (in honor of her mother) on her right inner forearm, and the outline of a violin with an “M” for Moennig inside (which she got the day after her father died, in his honor) on her lower back.

Moennig moved to New York City at the age of 18 to study at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. There she began a modeling career, and also performed on stage.

In 1999, she had the central role in the Our Lady Peace video ”Is Anybody Home?

Her first major role was in the television series Young Americans, playing Jake Pratt, a girl who enters the Rawley Boys Academy by passing as a boy and ends up falling in love with Hamilton (Ian Somerhalder), the Dean’s son.

Moennig has played many lesbian roles. Best known for her portrayal of Shane McCutcheon on The L Word, she also appeared as a lesbian artist—a former lover of Sophia Myles' character—in Terry Zwigoff's 2006 Art School Confidential.

Moennig has also pursued transgender roles. She auditioned for the part of Brandon Teena in Boys Don’t Cry, which ended up going to actress Hilary Swank, and played Cheryl Avery, a young transsexual woman, in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (episode “Fallacy”).

On April 12, 2006, Moennig made her Off Broadway debut, opposite Lee Pace, in Guardians, by Peter Morris. In it, she plays “American Girl”—a young United States Army soldier fromWest Virginia who becomes a scapegoat in a scandal involving abuse at an Iraqi prison. The story is loosely based on that of Lynndie England.[7]

In 2007 the documentary “My Address: A Look At Gay Youth Homelessness” in New York was launched with Moennig in cooperation with the Hetrick-Martin Institute (HMI), directed by Gigi Nicolas.

In 2008, Moennig played the role of Mary Landis, a suspect in season 6 episode 19 of CSI:Miami

In 2009, Moennig joined the cast of Three Rivers, a medical drama set in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at a hospital specializing in transplants. Moennig played Dr. Miranda Foster, a surgical fellow with a rebellious streak and fiery temper[8] who strives to live up to her deceased father’s excellent surgical reputation. On November 30, 2009, it was announced that CBS had pulled Three Rivers from the schedule, with no plans to return it.

In 2010, Moennig signed on to play a guest-starring role in Dexter as a tattoo artist.[9]
