Kristin Laura Kreuk was born December 30th, 1982, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The easy-going daughter of a Dutch father and Chinese mother, both of whom are landscape architects, Kristin led a regular life prior to stardom. She proceeded through her schooling as an unassuming yet attention-getting girl.
She enjoyed acting classes, but was not serious about the trade. That is, until a casting director faxed her (and every British Columbian) high school about a casting call for the CBC series Edgemont. Kreuk entered and "got lucky," as she says; suddenly, she was a television actress.
Since Edgemont is filmed in Vancouver, Kreuk stayed at her parents' house as her star rose. Her character, Laurel Yeung, is the mysterious pretty girl from out of town, and she is one of the favorites on the Canadian semi-melodrama, which can also be seen on the FOX Family Channel.
Not to be deterred by the pressures of success and hard work, Kreuk attended another audition for a Vancouver-based television program: the WB series Smallville, which focuses on the young life of comic book hero Superman and his alter ego Clark Kent. Kreuk was cast as Lana Lang, the gorgeous, popular cheerleader-type girl who precedes Superman's long-time love, Lois Lane.
Shooting two shows concurrently has left Kristin Kreuk little time to pursue other projects. She has had to postpone plans to study psychology and forensic science at British Columbia's Simon Fraser University.
Recently, Kreuk played the title role in a made-for-TV version of Snow White, and became a spokesmodel for Neutrogena skin care products, following in the footsteps of fellow hotties Jennifer Love Hewitt and Mandy Moore. While she loves Vancouver enough to never move to Hollywood and claims that she's uncertain about whether or not she'll continue to act, rest assured that her talent and jaw-dropping looks will bring her more roles in the future.
