Hard to believe, but Kristin Kreuk has spent over half her life before the cameras, starring on Smallville, Beauty and the Beast and Burden of Truth .
Here’s something I didn’t know, however: she almost became half Klingon! In an engaging podcast conversation, Kreuk confides that, just before committing to play crusading lawyer Joanna Chang on Burden, she went after a lead role on a series shot in Toronto -- Star Trek: Discovery.
“I auditioned a lot,” says the Vancouver native, who, when she wasn't studying karate and doing gymnastics, grew up a fan of Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
Kreuk also discusses shooting Season 4 of Burden of Truth in and around Winnipeg under strict COVID safety procedures. Catch new episodes Thursdays on CBC.
She’s currently working on a degree in History from Queens University. She's also binging one of the greatest TV shows ever made. (Hint: it's 20 years old!)
