Quote: "In the back of my mind I kept thinking, I’m fighting Arnold and I’ve got to be naked in front of the world. So that was enough incentive. I would work, like, 20 hours and work out constantly in my gym and my trailer because of the ‘birthing’ scene, as I call it."
Kristanna Loken was born in 1979 and was raised on an organic fruit farm in upstate New York. Her father is a successful writer of novels and screenplays, and the owner/operator of the Loken family's farm. Her mother is a former Wilhelmina model.
During her childhood, Loken was educated in both public and private schools and tried her hand at several activities including singing, acting and dancing lessons. Loken was a stellar student and came to love horseback riding. In fact, she showcased her skills in equestrian events and has ridden across much of Hawaii, Ireland and Namibia, Africa.
Encouraged by her mother, Loken began her modeling career at the early age of 15, and placed third in the Elite Look of the Year contest in Ibiza, Spain. This exposure led to some modeling jobs as an Elite model.
It was acting, however, that would prove to be her most successful venture. The same year as the Elite modeling competition, Loken was cast as Danielle "Dani" Andropolous on the long-running soap opera, As the World Turns. This was followed up by short stints on comedies like Unhappily Ever After, Boy Meets World and Just Shoot Me.
Loken continued to take on bit parts on other shows like Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman and finally landed a decent role on Pensacola: Wings of Gold in 1997. She was able to develop the character of Janine Kelly during her one-year tenure on the show and gained some valuable acting experience in the process.
After years of bit parts and cancelled shows, Loken's efforts were finally rewarded in 2001 after being offered a recurring role as A.D.A. Lisa Walensky on the TV drama, Philly. Working hard to get her name out even more, Loken starred in 2001's Panic. But, it wasn't until she was cast as the villain T-X in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines that Loken got her big break. After the film's release in 2003, people can't seem to get enough of Kirstanna Loken. She already has three movies lined up for release in 2004, and has graced the covers of dozens of magazines. It seems safe to say that we'll definitely be seeing a lot more of Kristanna Loken in the future.
