Comedian Katherine Ryan decided just acting in her new Netflix series “The Duchess” wasn’t enough for her. Instead she wrote, executive produced and starred in the comedy about a single mother living in London.
Ryan stars as Katherine (yes, she and her character share a name) a loving mother who makes some questionable personal decisions but makes it no secret that she’s willing to destroy anyone that hurts her daughter. Katherine and Olive are completely inseparable and share an alarmingly close bond that makes viewers wonder if the original umbilical cord was forged from steel. This mother daughter team might even rival the smothering love and closeness of the classic “Gilmore Girls” Lorelai and Rory as they not only talk about everything but, this pair even shares a bedroom.
