'Sister Act': "Sister Mary Patrick" Looks So Different Today
Kathy Najimy's film career began in the early nineties. She was only cast in small roles to start with and appeared in several Off-Broadway shows, but got her big break in 1992 when she was cast as "Sister Mary Patrick" in Sister Act.
The musical Sister Act starring Whoopi Goldberg (63) has become a cult classic. Part of its success was thanks to Kathy Najimy (62) as "Sister Mary Patrick", who was hilarious and harmonized perfectly with Whoopi Goldberg as "Sister Mary Clarence".

After starring in Sister Act, Kathy appeared in countless films and TV series, including Hocus Pocus alongside Sarah Jessica Parker (54), Rat Race and Desperate Housewives.
However, she has also found her calling outside the world of show business.
