Who is Kris Williams on “Ghost Hunters”? Wiki Biography

Kris Williams was born in Lowell, Massachusetts USA, on 20 February 1981 – her birth sign is Aquarius and she holds American nationality. Kris is an actress, probably best known for her appearance in the “Ghost Hunters” paranormal reality TV series.

Early life and education

Kris spent her early life in Lowell, raised by her father Bob and her mother Diane with her two younger siblings. Bob owns a gun store, and Kris helped him run it by launching the store’s website and doing the marketing, while Diane is a housewife.

Kris grew up being interested in genealogy – the study of families, family history, and tracing of their lineages – and she also believes in the paranormal such as spirits and ghosts.

Kris attended Alvime High School, where she was focused on art, and around the time she matriculated, Kris began working at a radio station, where she took care of the soundboards and occasionally went on-air. She later enrolled at Rivier College where she studied communications for two years, before she met Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson who are the founders of The Atlantic Paranormal Society (TAPS) – she decided to join their society, and therefore quit college.

Career as an actress, model, and other ventures

Kris launched her modelling career at the age of 20, when she was signed to Click agency located in Boston, Massachusetts – she spent a couple of years with the agency doing catwalk and hair shows as well as print work.

She then worked as a flooring installer and a carpenter for three years from 2004 to 2007, when Jason and Grant began working on their “Ghost Hunters” paranormal reality TV series. At around the same time, Kris began winning non-speaking roles in movies and TV series, including “Waterfront”, “Mystic River”, and “Brotherhood”.

She continued auditioning for roles until a cast member left “Ghost Hunters”, leading to Jason and Grant inviting Kris to work with them in the show. She became part of the main cast in 2007, and stayed with the series until 2011, while the show aired until October 2016 on the Syfy channel, counting 10 seasons and 230 episodes. The show was revived in January 2019, and its 12th season airing from August to October, while its 13th season is set to air in 2020.

In 2011, Kris moved from “Ghost Hunters” to “Ghost Hunters International” where she served as a co-lead investigator working alongside Barry Fitzgerald before leaving the show in 2015 after she began dating her boyfriend – she could mostly have been seen in the end of the show wrap up where she and Barry talk with clients. In the show, she went by her nickname “Bait”. Some of the movies Kris has appeared in throughout the years include “Jesus, Mary and Joey” in 2005, “The Lady Red Trio” in 2005 as well, and “Diabolic Tales: Part II” in 2007.


Love life and husband

Kris met a man who works as a pilot while she was travelling around the world and was shooting for the “Ghost Hunters International” TV series – the two went out on their first date in 2015 and married two years later in 2017. The mysterious man is originally from Australia, and they decided to move to Australia together where they are currently living. They don’t have any children, but have two pet dogs.

Before her husband, Kris was dating a man she met while she was still attending college, and the two were dating for several years before calling it quits due to a lack of time to maintain a relationship.

She was also rumored to be going out with one of the cast members of the “Ghost Hunters”, while it’s believed that she left the show after the two broke up.

Hobbies and other interests

One of Kris’ main hobbies is photography, and she often uploads the pictures she takes onto her Instagram account which counts over 30,000 followers. Travelling is her second favorite hobby and she has been all around the world during the years she was filming for “Ghost Hunter International”, while her dream travel destination is London.

She is a writer as well as a reader, and has been writing her personal blog for years now – she has read numerous books during the course of years, with some of her favorites being “The Unbearable Lightness of Being” by Milan Kundera and “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” by Douglas Adams. She has been a fan of both genealogy and paranormal things since she was 11 years old. She likes to share her videos on her YouTube channel, which she launched on 11 September 2010, and which counts nearly 5,000 subscribers.

Kris is interested in politics and is an artist – she likes all kinds of art, and often visits museums and photography exhibitions. She is very keen on history, and knows a bit about many countries.
