Katy was born Katy Vousteki (كيتى فوستاكي) in 1927 in Alexandria, Egypt to a Greek father and Egyptian mother. She appeared in many movies from the 1950s through to the mid-1960s but left Egypt suddenly in mysterious circumstances after being implicated in a spy plot involving Egyptian/Israeli double agent Refaat el Gammal. Egyptian actress Mary Fakreddine has always defended Katy's reputation at a cost to her own, saying that Katy did not co-operate.
I'm sure I'm saying things you already know but many who come to this channel are not aware that there was a large Greek community in Egypt prior to the 1952 revolution. The majority left Egypt in the decade or so following the revolution, many to the US, Canada and Australia. As Katy's fame relates to her place of birth I've referred to her as Egyptian. She appeared in at least two Greek language films and also speaks Greek in at least one of her Egyptian films where she plays the daughter of the local Greek barber.
She died in Greece in 1980.
