Kristin Laura Kreuk born December 30, 1982 is a Canadian actress and model known for her roles on the Canadian television series Edgemont and on the American television series "Smallville". Kreuk was born in Vancouver, British Columbia. Her father, Peter Kreuk, is of Dutch ancestry and her mother, Deanna Che, is of Chinese ancestry; both are landscape architects. She also has a younger sister, Justine Kreuk.
Kristin was planning to study either psychology, environmental science, or forensic science at Simon Fraser University when a casting director for the CBC TV series "Edgemont" called her high school, looking for an "exotic"-looking girl to play the part of Laurel Yeung on the Vancouver-shot show. Kreuk, who had no previous experience in acting other than musicals at her high school, was convinced to audition for the role by her drama teacher. Much to her surprise, she won the part. After shooting the first season of "Edgemont" (a teen soap opera set at a Vancouver-area high school) and getting herself an agent, Kreuk landed the lead role of Snow White in a TV movie entitled "Snow White: The Fairest of Them All". The film, shot in Vancouver, also starred actress Miranda Richardson. It aired on ABC on March 17, 2002.
After Snow White, Kreuk's agent sent an audition tape to movie screenwriters Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, who at the time were putting together the cast of a show they had created for the WB Network entitled "Smallville". Originally, Kreuk was not so sure about auditioning for the Lana role, as the character was to be a gorgeous, popular cheerleader and so she assumed that the part would be that of a shallow "idiot". However, upon reading the "graveyard scene" from the pilot, she was so impressed that when she was offered the role, she immediately accepted it. In 2003, Kreuk wrapped up her role on "Edgemont".
She was also tapped for her first feature film role in the summer of 2003; she made a cameo appearance in the movie "Eurotrip", starring Scott Mechlowicz and Michelle Trachtenberg. The film, shot in Prague, Czech Republic, also featured cameos by Matt Damon and Lucy Lawless. It debuted in theatres on February 20, 2004. In the summer of 2004, Kreuk joined the cast of the Sci Fi Channel miniseries "Legend of Earthsea", starring Shawn Ashmore and Danny Glover and based on the novels by Ursula K. Le Guin. It aired on December 13, 2004.
Though many mistake this young heart throb as being shy, when she sees a guy she likes she is not afraid of being aggressive to get what she wants. It was said that during her second season of filming smallville she developed a crush on the director. Rumor had it one night after shooting her scene while the director finished the days filming Kristin went to the directors trailer and created a "sexy atmosphere" while ordering take out. When the director returned to his trailer not only did he find the the food and lights dimmed Kristin was wearing a lace lingerie outfit which gave him an instant hard on. The minute she noticed his bulg in his pants Kristin knew she had him. The two fucked all night and in every position they could think of. Kristin's favor postion was doggy style because it gave her the ablility to reach under and grab his balls. Realizing the harder she sqeezed the harder he pushed giving her mulitple orgaims all night. The next day at shoot the both of them seemed tired and unfoced, possible looking forward to another night of hot sex.
