Michelle Borth (born August 19, 1978) is an American actress who has portrayed characters on The Forgotten and the critically acclaimed HBO series Tell Me You Love Me, a role for which film.com proclaimed her "the nakedest person in TV history." Borth plays "Catherine Rollins" on the CBS crime-drama Hawaii Five-0, which is in its sixth season.
Early life and education
She aspired to become a gymnast in youth but after getting in trouble over drugs, she discovered acting at a camp. She attended Pace University in Manhattan, obtaining her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2001 in Theater and Art History.
Borth's previous credits include the films, Wonderland (directed by James Cox), Trespassers, The Sisterhood, Silent Warnings, Rampage: The Hillside Strangler Murders and Komodo vs. Cobra; and guest appearances on the Supernatural episode "What Is and What Should Never Be" and the Law & Order: SVU episode "Trade". She also appeared in Burger King's "Lunch Break" advertising campaign. She's also featured in John Mayer's "Bigger Than My Body" video.
In 2008, she wrapped the independent film TiMER with Emma Caulfield and Desmond Harrington, and appeared in the Endgame Productions' comedy film, A Good Old Fashioned Orgy with Leslie Bibb, Lake Bell, and Jason Sudeikis.
In 2009, she was a pillar cast member of ABC's The Forgotten starring Christian Slater, appearing in 17 episodes, including part of the 2010 season. In 2010, she also guest starred on the TNT TV series Dark Blue double-episode season finale and on three episodes of the 2010 version of Hawaii Five-0 on CBS where she appeared as on and off Steve McGarrett's girlfriend, Lt. Catherine Rollins, a Navy Lieutenant. On March 26, 2012, CBS announced that Borth would become a cast regular on Hawaii Five-0 for seasons 3 & 4. On March 27, 2014, it was announced that she would not be returning for the fifth season, with the reason for her departure left unknown. However, she would return in the show's 5th Season Finale, in which it also later confirmed that she'd be back in a recurring role, beginning with the 6th season premiere.
