Joanna Chang in “Burden of Truth” / Executive Producer of “Burden of Truth”
Kristin Kreuk returns as new mother and attorney Joanna Chang in The CW drama “Burden of Truth.”
Born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia, 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, 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.
In addition to becoming a 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 also starred in the Canadian feature “Partition” opposite Jimi Mistry. Kreuk also appeared in the features “Streetfighter: The Legend of Chun Li” and the independent film “Vampire.”
Kreuk currently resides in Toronto and, when she’s not working, enjoys reading, traveling and spending time with friends.
