Who is Kristin Lehman?

Born on 3 May 1972, in New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada, under the earth sign of Taurus, Kristin Lehman is a 47-year-old Canadian dancer, director, producer and actress. Over the course of her career, she has received a number of awards for her roles and production credits in several movies and films. By assuming the lead role in “Motive”, an NBCU International production, in 2012, she became the first Canadian actress to direct, produce and star in a show at the same time. Prior to “Motive”, audiences know of her from her performances in two highly-acclaimed shows – AMC’s “The Killing”, and “Altered Carbon” on Netflix. As a director, she has been equally successful, with a Leo Award nomination for “The Dead Hand” – her directorial debut – and an episode of “Motive”.

Early Life and Education: Growing Up in British Columbia

Kristin was born into a Canadian family, but there isn’t much information about her early childhood, nor about her parents. This is a clear sign of professionalism, as Kristin doesn’t want her personal life affecting her career. Just a few months after she took her first steps, the Lehman family moved to the capital of the province – Vancouver. From an early age, it was evident that she had a knack for the performing arts, pursuing dancing as her bigger love, and acting as her second option. She danced classical ballet for a period of eight years, while attending Canada’s Royal Academy of Dance. At the age of 17, she ended up heartbroken because she couldn’t continue dancing following a nasty ankle injury, but instead of despairing over the inability to pursue her passion, Kristin redirected her focus towards acting.

1995-2000: Poltergeist: The Legacy, Go Fish, Strange World

The first part of Kristin’s career was mostly centered around roles in Canadian TV shows. In 1995, she made her debut in “The Commish”, a hit police comedy, and by taking on the role of Cynthia, she caught the attention of many renowned directors and producers in her home country. Afterwards, she appeared in the TV movie “Ed McBain’s 87th Precinct: Ice”, and “Forever Knight”, another hit Canadian TV series. This gave her the confidence she needed, with 1996 marking her first movie role, as Florence in “Alaska”. The same year, she appeared in “F/X: The Series” and “Kung Fu: The Legend Continues”, which were also met with positive reviews. In 1998, Kristin assumed one of her best roles, Kristin Adamas in “Poltergeist: The Legacy”. appearing in a total of 36 episodes over the next two years. This opened new doors for the aspiring Canadian blonde.

2001-2010

2001 saw Lehman make appearances in “Felicity”, “Go Fish” and “The Outer Limits”, and during this period, she was also Dr. Sidney MacMillan in “Strange World”. She was now based in Los Angeles, where she could attend multiple shoots in one day. Kristin became renowned for her work ethic – “Judging Amy”, “The Twilight Zone”, “Andromeda” are just some of the shows in which Kristin played an important, recurring role for at least one season. 2006 was perhaps the busiest year of her career, with appearances in “Prison Break”, “Rapid Fire”, “Damages” and “Killer Instinct”. From 2007 to 2010, she took a long break from acting, all to focus on spending time with her family, and getting some rest after 15 years of non-stop work.

2011 and Onwards: Motive, Ghost Wars dan Altered Carbon

After 2011’s critically acclaimed series of appearances in “The Killing”, Kristin decided to develop a project of her own. Using knowledge from almost 20 years of work in show business, she created “Motive”, a series in which she is the producer, lead actress and sporadic director. For her performance in the show, she was nominated for two Canadian Screen Awards in 2016 and 2017, and winning a Leo Award for Best Lead Performance by a Female in a Dramatic Series in 2017. Recently, she made headlines for her performance as Miriam Bancroft in “Altered Carbon”, a hit Netflix show centered around science fiction mysteries.

Personal Life: Does Kristin Lehman Have a Husband? Who is He?

Kristin Lehman is married to Adam Reid, a three-time Academy Award-winning voice actor and artist. The couple met sometime in the early 2000s, and ultimately decided to tie the knot on 18 May 2007, and now have a son named Camden. Kristin loves sunbathing and hiking in her free time; she now lives again in Vancouver with her husband and son. From the age of 14 until she turned 33, Kristin was a vegan – nowadays she does eat animal products, but still avoids meat. She has a Twitter account, with 8,000 followers.

Body Measurements: How Tall is Kristin Lehman?

Kristin Lehman is 5ft 6in (167cm) tall, weighs 121lbs (54kgs), and her vital statistics are 34-24-36. Her hair is blonde, matching her light blue eyes, and has no body modifications.

What is Kristin Lehman’s Net Worth?

According to authoritative sources, Kristin has a net worth of approximately $10 million, as of mid-2019, accumulated by fighting for her place in the spotlight, oftentimes appearing in seven or more movies and TV shows in one year. Given the fact that she’s still going strong, Kristin can easily increase her wealth if she maintains her multiple roles in the entertainment industry.

Quotes

#Quote
1I'm a journeyman actor. My experience as a journeyman actor is that you have to go where the work is. I've never been the lead; I've never been in that position.
2I'm a character actor; that's my skill set.
3For 'Motive,' it wasn't a question of making it look un-Canadian, but instead, we wanted it to be the product of a bunch of really skilled people making something. And that's what you have.
4I ran for ninth grade class president. Came in a close second.
5I didn't expect to feel pathos for the villains in our show. I feel quite moved in several of our episodes; I never realized that a show like 'Motive,' which aims for a broad appeal, could have that sort of emotional impact.
6You have to carry so many archetypes as an actor, especially as a blonde-haired, blue-eyed one.
7I want to live a good life and pay my taxes. 'The Killing' was a blessing. It was two wonderful years. But I had reached a point in my life, especially with a young son, that I was no longer willing to compromise my life for the sake of a paycheque. I was no longer willing to move where the tax credits are strong.
8I injured myself quite badly when I was seventeen. I broke my ankle, and it didn't heal in such a way that I could keep dancing at the level I wanted to. It wasn't like, 'Oh my god, I'll never play the violin again.' I could, but not at the level I wanted. So, I segued into acting, the other thing that was also meaningful to me.
