Katheryn Winnick has probably seen The Shawshank Redemption 15 times, so it’s fitting that she stars as Laurie Chambers in the film adaptation of The Dark Tower alongside Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, which hit theaters last week.
“[Elba] is so tall when you see him in person,” said Winnick about her colleague when she stopped by Entertainment Weekly: The Show for a round of Co-Star Crush. “He’s so charming and I’ve been a huge fan of him and his TV shows.” And, like us, she also thinks its hard to not have a crush on McConaughey. “His stare and his voice, you can’t help but be mesmerized.”

Katheryn was interviewed and photographed for Coveteur and talked challenging roles, action movies, and The Law of Attraction. Check the pictures in our gallery and the article below.
There’s no doubt about it: Katheryn Winnick is b-u-s-y. As soon as we start talking at The Standard’s East Village location, she runs down the list of all she has going on. “I just finished Comic-Con, I’m here in New York promoting The Dark Tower, and we just got announced for another season of Vikings,” the actress tells me, relaxing (for a moment!) on a fluffy white bed. “I’m also excited about my video game; I’m the new face of Call of Duty: WWII.”
This schedule is enough to make any person crazy (and it doesn’t even mention Speed King, a movie she just filmed with John Travolta). But Katheryn isn’t one to complain. “It’s nice to be so busy and see it all manifest. All the hard work is finally coming together.”
As our conversation continues, I get a better sense of who I’m speaking with: a woman with a passion for telling stories—and who’s hoping the recent success of Wonder Woman will open up doors for females in action films. Read on to see how one kickass Toronto native is taking Hollywood by storm…and how a vision board party might have something to do with it.
Katheryn Winnick is kicking ass — literally. As Lagertha on The History Channel’s hit show, Vikings, she’s a warrior and reigning queen of Denmark. She’s also about to burn up the silver screen alongside Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba in this summer’s blockbuster, The Dark Tower, opening August 4th. We took a moment to ask the fierce femme how she keeps her beauty game strong while taking Hollywood by storm.
Untitled Magazine: Your skin is so fair and beautiful! What are some of your go-to skincare products? Are you careful about sun protection?
Katheryn Winnick: Thank you for the compliment! I grew up drinking lots of water, and I’m extremely disciplined about sunscreen every single day. My favorite is Chantecaille SPF 50. I’m also a firm believer in washing, exfoliating, and steaming my face every night when I bathe. I’m all about a good travel beauty hack: my mother taught me to use olive oil to remove makeup; you can just call room service and have them deliver a side of it.
