Stana Katic: Family Background
Castle star Stana Katic made her Live! with Kelly & Michael debut appearance in order to celebrate her show’s upcoming 100th episode. First, the multicultural star explained her unique family background and some of the cool places she’s recently traveled to.
Stana explained that her parents are Serbs from Croatia who emigrated from Yugoslavia to Canada and then finally to the United Sates. Stana grew up moving and traveling a lot with her four brothers and one sister, which instilled a love of travel from an early age. Now, Stana loves visiting exotic places. She recently traveled to Argentina, India and Mongolia.
Stana Katic: Trip To Mongolia
Stana shared some very cool pictures from her trip to Mongolia. She felt like an anthropologist as she narrated the images from the Gobe desert where she spent time searching for dinosaur remains. She also attended a hair cutting ceremony that’s sort of like the equivalent of a baptism. When a child’s hair is cut for the first time, everyone in the community gathers and enjoys a huge celebration together.
When Stana revealed that the celebration included a meal of disemboweled sheep, the audience cringed. Since Stana was the guest of honor, she got to sample the tastiest part: the fat back. Yum!
