    BIOGRAPHY

    Born Katie McClain, Cady was born and raised in Southern California. At the age of nine, her first break into television was with the popular commercial: "I Am Stuck on Band-Aids." Following several other commercial spots, she also had guest spots on "Cheers," "St. Elsewhere," and "Lou Grant."

    Arriving in New York at the age of 17, she tried out for and landed roles in several Broadway productions. Wanting more stability in her life and career she was offered a screen test for Dixie but had regretfully turned it down. Several months later, the producers knocked on her door and this time she agreed and landed the role of Dixie on "All My Children."

    Cady continued to work in theatre during her time in New York, and from 1989 - 2013 she had stints as both Dixie on "All My Children," and the character Rosanna Cabot on "As The World Turns." In 2014 she joined "The Young and the Restless" as a recast Kelly Andrews, replacing actress Cynthia Watros.

    McClain enjoys playing guitar and writing music and poetry.
