"Actor Kristin Kreuk on growing up in the drug era, and why she’s resisted moving to Hollywood
You starred on Smallville for eight seasons. How did that come about? In Grade 12, my drama teacher at Eric Hamber told me about an audition for a CBC show called Edgemont. I got a lead role, but I didn’t know how to act for the camera. I’d only done theatre. The casting director, Carole Tarlington, really championed me, sending me out. Eventually, at age 18, I was cast in Smallville. That role, Lana Lang, was so sweet.
In your new film, Ecstasy, your character has more edge. Do they feel unrelated? I like quirky characters, which this one is. She has a relationship with a very cut-off man, hates her job, is on antidepressants, is a bit numb. The film looks at how we build the kind of passion in our lives or love for ourselves that transcends relationships or drugs."
