Kristin Kreuk

She know as "Lana" from Smallville series, Clark's (Superman) love interest before Louis Lane. But, I first saw her in a movie "Snow White: The Fairest of Them All" (2001). She is so white and beautiful with black hair, the Snow White rule really suit to her. Kristin Kreuk doesn't look like Asian, though her mother is a pure Chinese who born in Indonesia. That's made her to play the role of "Chun-Li" in Street Fighter: Legend of Chun-Li.

Kristin Laura Kreuk was born on December 30, 1982, in Vancouver, British Columbia. She grew up in Vancouver with her parents, Peter Kreuk, who is Dutch, and Deanna Che, a Chinese Indonesian, both of whom are landscape architects, and one younger sister. Her parents' birth nationalities resulted in Kristin's unusual, but beautiful, Eurasian appearance.

She had plans to study psychology, environmental science, or forensic science at Simon Fraser University when a casting director for the CBC TV series Edgemont contacted her secondary school, looking for an exotic-looking girl to play the part of a Chinese Canadian, Laurel Yeung on the Vancouver-shot show. Kreuk's drama teacher convinced Kristin Kreuk, who had no previous acting experience other than in musicals at her high school, to audition for the role. To her surprise, she won the part.
