New Mulgrew Autobiography

No Comment Yet


Fans of Kate Mulgrew will be happy to know that an autobiography about the actress will arrive next month.

Born With Teeth will be released on April 14.

Here is the official synopsis of Born With Teeth: “Raised by unconventional Irish Catholics who knew ‘how to drink, how to dance, how to talk, and how to stir up the devil,’ Kate Mulgrew grew up with poetry and drama in her bones. But in her mother, a would-be artist burdened by the endless arrival of new babies, young Kate saw the consequences of a dream deferred. Determined to pursue her own no matter the cost, at eighteen she left her small Midwestern town for New York, where, studying with the legendary Stella Adler, she learned the lesson that would define her as an actress: ‘Use it,’ Adler told her. Whatever disappointment, pain, or anger life throws in your path, channel it into the work.

“It was a lesson she would need. At twenty-two, just as her career was taking off, she became pregnant and gave birth to a daughter. Having already signed the adoption papers, she was allowed only a fleeting glimpse of her child. As her star continued to rise, her life became increasingly demanding and fulfilling, a whirlwind of passionate love affairs, life-saving friendships, and bone-crunching work. Through it all, Mulgrew remained haunted by the loss of her daughter, until, two decades later, she found the courage to face the past and step into the most challenging role of her life, both on and off screen.”

Born With Teeth will be available as a hardback, a Kindle book, or as an audible book. To pre-order the book, which will cost $20.52, head to the link located here. The other two versions are also found at that link.

Mulgrew also recorded several short videos discussing the book, like the one below where she explains how and why she came up with the book title. More of the videos can be found on her website, located here.
