Kate Capshaw was born Kathleen Sue Nail on the 3rd November 1953 in Fort Worth, Texas. She is and actress who is best known for her role a Willie Scott in Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom and as the wife of director Steven Spielberg. She met Steven Spielberg (her second husband) upon winning the female lead (from a pool of 120 actresses) for the Raiders of the Lost Ark prequel, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Although the film was a success, her performance as the often shrieking heroine was widely panned and, in the opinion of many, had a very negative impact on her career and reputation, preventing her from acquiring more prestigious roles. Kate decided to convert to Judaism before marrying Steven Spielberg in 1991. There are seven children in the Spielberg-Capshaw family, Jessica (1976) (daughter from Kate's previous marriage to Robert Capshaw) Max Samuel Spielberg (1985) (son from Steven Spielberg's previous marriage to actress Amy Irving) Theo (b 1988 - African-American; adopted by Kate before her marriage to Spielberg; adopted by Spielberg) Sasha (1990) Sawyer (1992), Mikaela George (1996; adopted with Spielberg) Destry Allyn (1996).
