Looks like Conan isn’t the only O’Brien working in the entertainment industry. He has a younger sister named Kate O’Brien who no one ever heard of really–until last night. Amy Adams made an appearance on The Conan O’Brien Show and discussed her upcoming film called The Fighter in which Conan O’Brien’s sister Kate O’Brien is making her acting debut. The Fighter also stars Mark Walhberg and Christian Bale (yum!).

More details on Kate O’Brien after the jump!

The Fighter tells the story of boxer Micky “Irish” Ward, played by Mark Wahlberg, and his brother-turned-trainer played by Christian Bale. Kate O’Brien is Phyllis “Beaver” Ecklund, one of the many sisters in the family. Conan O’Brien is proud of his sister and said:

She did an amazing job and she loved the experience.

On the fence about seeing it? Well this may sway you. Even though the film doesn’t hit theaters until Friday, it has already picked up six Golden Globe nominations, including actor nominations for Adams and Wahlberg.

Check out Kate O’Brien in the pics below – she’s the second from last on the right:
