Katja Schuurman (born 19 February 1975) is a Dutch actress, singer and television personality.
Schuurman made her acting debut in 1992 on the television series Uit de school geklapt. Her breakthrough came two years later when she resurfaced in the RTL soap Goede Tijden, Slechte Tijden (GTST) as Jessica, the eldest niece of former angry neighbour Govert Harmsen.
With two other characters from GTST she formed the spin-off girl group Linda, Roos & Jessica. Their debut single "Ademnood" (English version: "Turn Your Love Around'") topped the Dutch charts in late 1995.
Katja continued to release singles with both LR&J and on her own. She had hits with Maar nu heb ik er een, Wereldmeid, Totaal Verkocht and Lover or friend.
By 1999 Schuurman had left the GTST-cast while LR&J disbanded after the aptly-titled farewell-single "1999 X".
In 2000 Schuurman played Frida in the Salou-based movie Costa! and found herself reunited with Georgina Verbaan, who played her sister Hedwig in Goede Tijden, Slechte Tijden. Costa! premiered in 2001 and was successful enough to be adapted into a television series. Schuurman and Verbaan appeared in the first two seasons.
