Canadian actress Kristin Kreuk began her acting career during her senior year in high school when she landed a role as Laurel Yeung in the teen soap opera “Edgemont”. The role helped Kreuk secure the lead role in the TV movie “Snow White: The Fairest of Them All”. Kreuk then starred in the two-part miniseries “Earthsea” for the Sci Fi Channel in 2004 and also landed a cameo in the comedy “Eurotrip”. Around the same time, her agent sent out an audition tape to Miles Millar and Alfred Gough who were casting for “Smallville”. The screenwriters were so impressed by Kreuk’s talent that they immediately cast her for the role of Lana Lang, Clark Kent's first love. Kreuk went on to become a regular on the show and was a part of the show’s cast for seven seasons and returned for a guest stint in season eight. During her stint on “Smallville”, Kreuk also appeared in a number of films including the 2007 indie flick “Partition”, the 2006 short film “Dream Princess”, “Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li” released in 2009, the 2010 Japanese horror film “Vampire” and “Space Milkshake”, a sci-fi comedy film released in 2012. In early 2012, Kreuk was cast as the lead female protagonist in the modern day retelling of “Beauty and the Beast” which will air in fall 2012. Apart from being a successful film and television actress, Kreuk has also worked as the longest-serving worldwide spokesperson for Neutrogena. Through her various roles and cameo appearances in films and television series and her work as an advertising spokesmodel, Kristin Kreuk has accumulated a net worth of over $10 million. Kristin Kreuk lives a simple life. Though the actress confesses she is an impulse shopper, she leads a modest lifestyle. I'd rather walk than drive a car - she has once quoted. A self-confessed fitness nut, when she is not busy with her shooting schedule, she likes to indulge in hobbies like practicing gymnastics, going dancing, writing and watching movies. Kreuk also has a purple belt in karate. The starlet is also an avid reader and some of her favorite books include classics like “Little Women”, “Anne of Green Gables”, “The World According to Garp” and “Wuthering Heights”. Her favorite author is John Irving. Born to a Chinese mother and a Dutch father in Vancouver, Canada, Kristin Kreuk had a relatively normal childhood. As a teen, the young starlet was shy and focused on her studies. Even though she often describes her teenaged self as ‘boring’, Kristin went on to become an active member of her high school’s dramatic arts program. While attending drama class, she went on to participate in a number offstage productions in her high school. Her talent impressed her drama teacher who encouraged Kristin to audition for “Edgemont” in her senior year. By the time she graduated from high school, Kristin had set her sights firmly on an acting career. Kristin met musician and actor Mark Hildreth in early 2004 and the two dated for a few months. However, their busy schedules forced them to part ways after just a few months together. In September 2004, Kreuk began seeing actor Jensen Ackles though the relationship only lasted a couple of years. In 2010, Kreuk and Hildreth rekindled their romance and the couple has been together ever since.
