To begin with, Kate was born into the family of an airline employee and a travel agent / beautician. She was raised in Fort Worth, Texas before her family moved to St Louis Missouri, where she was educated at Hazelwood Central High School. She graduated from the University of Missouri majoring in Education, and taught for several years, and then in the early 1980s she moved to New York as she wanted to pursue her dream of acting.

The first role she landed in the soap opera “The Edge of Night” (1981). Later, she was in the main cast of the science fiction horror film “Dreamscape” (1984) directed by Joseph Ruben. The same year she landed the lead role alongside Harrison Ford in the action adventure film “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” (1984) directed by Steven Spielberg. Although the film was a success, the interpretation of her role by Capshaw was widely criticized and, in the opinion of many, had a negative impact on her career. Later, Capshaw landed the lead role in adventure film “SpaceCamp” (1986) based on the book of the same name by Patrick Bailey and Larry B. Williams. However, the film failed in the box office as well as receiving negative reviews from critics. In 1987, she appeared in the television film “The Quick and the Dead” by Robert Day. She was also in the main cast of the comedy drama film “Private Affairs” (1987) by Francesco Massaro, the action thriller film “Black Rain” (1989) by Ridley Scott as well as the crime thriller film “Just Cause” (1995) by Arne Glimcher. It is worth mentioning the fact that Kate was the main star and co-producer of the romantic comedy film “The Love Letter” (1999) directed by Peter Chan. In 2001, she starred in the miniseries “A Girl Thing”. Overall, all the above mentioned roles increased the net worth of Kate Capshaw.

Finally, in the personal life of the actress, Kate Capshaw was married to Robert Capshaw (1976-80), with whom she had a daughter Jessica Capshaw. In 1991, Kate converted to Judaism, and the same year she married the famous director Steven Spielberg; they have three biological and two adopted children.
