Kristin Kreuk


  1. Diane Kruger, Troy, 2004.     According to The (London)  Times,  the Canadian star was talked of for the face that launched a thousand ships. Helen of Troy…   
  2. Rose Byrne, Troy, 2004    …And  for  Hector’s virgin cousin, Briseis.
  3. Anne Hathaway, Get Smart, 2008.    Future Oscar-winner Hathaway was surprisingly  good as Agent 99, the unforgettable creation of delicious Barbara Feldon in the 1965-1970 series. Director Peter Segal also gazed at Vancouver’s Kreuk, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Rachel McAdams. 
  4. Paula Patton, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, 2010.     Kristen and Lauren German  tested as Tom Cruise’s female operative in the $140m actioner.
  5. Rachel Weisz, The Bourne Legacy, 2011.  Three was enough for Matt Damon. (Until 2015…!)  The studio did not agree and kept the franchise alive by rebooting Jason Bourne as Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner)  – another victim of US secret service’s  Program.  Weisz won Dr Marta Shearing from a dozen other hopefuls: Eliza Dushku, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Milla Jovovich Kristin Kreuk, Diane Kruger, Jennifer Lawrence, Blake Lively, Michelle Monaghan, Elizabeth Olsen and three Kates: Beckinsale, Bosworth and Mara.  Why? Because as Chicago critic Roger Ebert pointed out she spends more time on-screen than is usual for women in actioners, is not just around for sex and “her performance stands up strongly beside Renner’s.” Bravo!
