Katrina Bowden (born September 19, 1988) is an American actress best known for playing Cerie on the NBC sitcom 30 Rock (2006–2013). She also appeared in films such as Sex Drive, Piranha 3DD, and Scary Movie 5.
Bowden was raised in Wyckoff, New Jersey. She attended the now-defunct Saint Thomas More School in Midland Park, New Jersey, for her grammar and middle school education. She later attended Immaculate Heart Academy in Washington Township, New Jersey.
In 2006, Bowden scored her first acting role in a two-episode arc on the ABC long-time running daytime soap opera television series One Life to Live as Britney. She has since guest starred on shows such as Law & Order: SVU and Ugly Betty. Bowden's breakthrough role came when she was cast as a recurring character on the Emmy Award-winning television series 30 Rock, which premiered on October 11, 2006 on NBC. She portrayed the sexy but incompetent assistant Cerie. She signed on as a regular for the show's second season in 2007. The show's final episode aired in January 2013, in total consisting of 7 seasons. She appears in the music videos "Dance, Dance" by American rock band Fall Out Boy, as well as "After Hours" by Brooklyn band We Are Scientists. She also appeared in the music video "Miss Jackson" By Panic! at the Disco.
In 2008, Bowden made her film debut in the Summit Entertainment raunchy comedy Sex Drive, released to theaters on October 17, 2008. The following year, Bowden starred in two low-budget straight-to-DVD projects The Shortcut and Ratko: The Dictator's Son. In 2010 Bowden starred in the widely acclaimed horror-comedy film Tucker & Dale vs Evil as Allison. The film was a limited release and grossed over $4,749,516 and premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. The film holds a 'fresh' rating of 85% on Rotten Tomatoes.
In April 2011, Bowden was voted as Esquire Magazine's Sexiest Woman Alive. She was also the face of the Jordache television campaign that made its premiere in September 2011. In April 2011, Universal Pictures announced that Bowden was cast as the role of Mia, an "L.A. party girl type", and girlfriend to Chris Klein's character, in the fourth installment of the American Pie film trilogy, American Reunion. The film was released on April 5, 2012 to mixed reviews but financial success. Also in 2012, Bowden appeared in the horror films Piranha 3DD, which was panned by critics, and Hold Your Breath, which received a limited theatrical release before being released to DVD. Bowden co-starred in Nurse 3D (2013). She guest-starred in American rock band Panic! at the Disco's music video for "Miss Jackson". In 2018, the actress played the lead role in the Hallmark Channel movie Love on the Slopes, a part of the channel's Winterfest event.
