Character of the Week: Katarina Stratford
This week's character of the week is from one of my favorite teen comedies, 10 Things I Hate About You. She is Katarina Stratford, who was portrayed by Julia Stiles, in this modern update of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew. I loved this movie growing up, and Kat was always my favorite character. She is really witty and smart and doesn't take any crap from anybody. She is set on protecting her sister from the skeezy guys at her school while trying to resist the charms of Patrick Verona, the hot Australian guy who is paid to woo her. Of course, she ends up falling for him, and he ends up falling for her and everyone gets their happy ending. Here is what is probably her most well-known scene.
