Catherine Wilder Disher (born June 22, 1960 in MontrealQuebecCanada) is a Canadian actress who has won two Gemini Awards. One for Best Actress for her role in the Canadian mini-series Snakes & Ladders, and in 2010 for her role in The Border. She was also nominated for her role as Dr. Natalie Lambert in the Forever Knight TV series.

Life & careerEdit

Disher graduated from the Phillips Exeter Academy in 1978 and later from the National Theatre School of Canada in Montreal.

She had a supporting role on T. and T., the legal/action series starring Mr. T, and had another supporting role in the second season of the War of the Worlds series. From 1992 to 1996 she starred in Forever Knight. Currently she plays Maggie Norton on the Canadian television series The Border, and provides additional voices on the PBS Kids/CBC Kids series Super WHY!.

Apart from her work as an actor, Disher does commercials and voice work for animated series (see list below).

She was formerly married to her X-Men co-star Cedric Smith, 17 years her senior, with whom she had a son, Darcy Montgomery Smith, in 1993.

She does not attend fan conventions, want fan clubs in her name, or make public appearances in general due to an incident in which some die hard fans of the War of the Worlds television series were outraged by the changes in the second season, and as a result, she received hate mail and death threats to herself and her family.
