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.

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.

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.
