Hettienne Park starred as Beverly Katz in the first two seasons of Hannibal.
Park appeared opposite Charlize Theron in the feature film “Young Adult”, directed by Jason Reitman. She also received the 2012 Theatre World Award for her one-two punch debuts in Tony Kushner’s “The Intelligent Homosexual’s Guide to Capitalism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures,” directed by Michael Greif, in its New York premiere at the Public Theater Off-Broadway and starring on Broadway in “Seminar” by Theresa Rebeck at The Golden Theater, directed by Sam Gold.
Born in Boston, Park landed her first professional stage role as the youngest of Mother Ginger’s children in Boston Ballet’s “The Nutcracker,” and her first role as an actress in a junior high school production of “Cats.” She studied flute and piano at the Longy School of Music, and continued training at the New England Conservatory. Shortly after graduating with BA’s in Economics and Religion from the University of Rochester, she played a leading role in Lanford Wilson’s, “Redwood Curtain,” at a small community theater that inspired her to pursue a career in acting. She completed the two-year acting program at the William Esper Studio in NYC, and spent a summer studying at the British American Drama Academy in Oxford. As a playwright she authored “Envy,” co-produced by the Naked Angels at the Sanford Meisner Theater, directed by John Ruocco.
Park landed her first television role on the CBS TV series “Hack,” followed by roles on “The Good Wife,” “Damages,” “Law & Order,” and “Law & Order SVU,” among others. She made her feature film debut in David Kaplan’s “Year of the Fish,” which premiered at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival, and went on to win several awards, including the Grand Jury Prize at the 24th Avignon Film Festival. Other film credits include “Bride Wars” and “Never Forever.”
