Kristin Kreuk in showers showscrene
Last year's shock entry was Elisha Cuthbert, reaching the No.4 spot simply by dint of breathing. This year, another 26-year-old crashes into the Top Ten - again, it seems, solely on the basis of TV nostalgia. It can't be Kristin's role in Street Fighter: The Legend Of Chun-Li. Nope, us neither. So it must be her role as Superman's girl in Smallville driving the votes.
Though Kristin Kreuk has not had much chance to show it off yet, she is most definitely a sexy Canuck. She is short and evenly proportioned, and can give off some sultry rays when she wants to. Her smooth curves and indifferent air can be tantalizing and quite mysterious -- that is, when she's not portraying a young square in a sweater (like in Edgemont).
Kristin Laura Kreuk was born December 30, 1982, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The easygoing daughter of a Dutch father and a Chinese mother, both of whom are landscape architects, Kristin Kreuk 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. Kristin Kreuk entered and "got lucky," as she says; suddenly, she was a television actress.

Since Edgemont was filmed in Vancouver, Kristin Kreuk stayed at her parents' house as her star rose. Her character, Laurel Yeung, was the mysterious pretty girl from out of town, and she was one of the favorites on the Canadian semi-melodrama, which could also be seen on the FOX Family Channel.
Not to be deterred by the pressures of success and hard work, Kristin 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. Kristin Kreuk was cast as Lana Lang, the gorgeous, popular cheerleader-type girl who precedes Superman's long-time love, Lois Lane. Since taking on another popular show, Kristin Kreuk has done nothing but flex her unfaltering acting muscle.

Shooting two shows concurrently left Kristin Kreuk with little time to pursue other projects. She had to postpone plans to study psychology and forensic science at British Columbia's Simon Fraser University. Considering it took her a few years to move out of her parents' house, she will probably take her time when it comes to going back to school.
Kristin Kreuk also 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.

In the summer of 2006, Kristin Kreuk was in the short film Dream Princess, based on the story of Sleeping Beauty. She also had a role in Partition, starring Neve Campbell, which was released in February 2007.
Kristin Kreuk followed that up by earning the lead role in the 2009 film Street Fighter: Legend of Chun-Li.
