Smallville fans rejoice, Lana Lang is joining Clark and Lex in Puyallup this Summer. Please welcome the often-requested Kristin Kreuk to the Washington State Summer Con happening in Puyallup from June 21st through the 23rd. Kristin is best known for her 158 episodes as Lana Lang on the hit series Smallville.
Kreuk began acting in plays in high school but focused mostly on her schoolwork rather than the stage. Fate came calling at the beginning of her senior year when a casting director looking for new talent for the Canadian series “Edgemont” tapped Kreuk for a starring role. It was her first professional audition.
The next year, she not only scored the title role of the television movie “Snow White” opposite Miranda Richardson, but she landed the lead role of Lana Lang on “Smallville” and managed to continue her role on “Edgemont.” She also starred in the BBC re-telling of “Ben Hur,” “Chuck” and recently starred in the feature films “Ecstasy” and “Space Milkshake.”
In The CW drama “Beauty and The Beast,” Kreuk starred for four seasons as Detective Catherine “Cat” Chandler, also serving as one of the show’s producers. She spent four seasons playing the role of Joanna Hanley in the CBC legal drama series “Burden of Truth.”
In addition to becoming the face of Neutrogena for six years, Kreuk performed a cameo in the film “Eurotrip,” opposite Matt Damon; starred in the miniseries “Earthsea,” opposite Isabella Rossellini; and starred in the Canadian feature “Partition,” opposite Jimi Mistry; as well as the feature “Streetfighter: The Legend of Chun Li” and the independent “Vampire.”
