Early Life and Education

Kristin decided to keep information regarding her childhood private, so there is almost no data about this period of her life available to the public, except that her family move to Vancouver, British Columbia soon after she was born, and so she was raised there and finished her primary and high school there. From a very early age, she showed enormous interest towards all sorts of entertainment fields, but after matriculating form high school, she somehow realized that her greatest passion was dance. Therefore she put all her energy and money into exploring, learning and expanding her talent for dance, which led her to attend Canada’s most respected institution in this field, Royal Academy of Dance, where she was trained by professionals in classical ballet for eight years. While she was still training, in 199, she got several chances to appear in a few Canadian TV shows, such as “Kung Fu: The Legend Continues”, “Due South” and “Forever Knight”, after which she decided  to move to Los Angeles and pursue her career in the entertainment industry.

Career Beginnings

Her debut in a TV series came immediately after moving to Los Angeles in 1995, when she was cast in an episode role as Cynthia in “The Commish”. Thanks to her exceptional talent, she caught the attention of many directors and producers who wanted to cast her in their own shows, and later that year she appeared as Urs in the TV series entitled “Forever Knights”, which was followed by her debut on a TV movie when she portrayed Tina in “Ed McBain’s 87th Precinct: Ice”, in 1996. Even though she had not been long in the business at the time, 1996 was a very successful year for her, as she appeared in the role of Rhonda in the TV series “Due South”, after which she guest-starred in the TV series “F/X: The Series”.

Kristin’s rise to prominence came in the same year, when she was chosen to portray Detective Jordan McGuire in the famous crime-drama TV series entitled “Kung Fu: The Legend Continues”, actually until 1997, increasing enormously her net worth as well as her popularity. As a result, in the next several years she appeared in a number of successful movies and TV series; for instance, she got the opportunity to play Kathleen Strauss in the movie “Bleeders “, Sarah Billing in “Dinner at Fred’s”, and Keiran in “Dog Park” as well as to guest-star in TV series “Earth: Final Conflict” and “The X Files”. Her next major role came in 1998 when she was chosen to portray Kristin Adams in one of the hit TV series of that time, entitled “Poltergeist: The Legacy”.

2000s

The next decade was even more successful for Lehman, as at the very beginning of the 2000s she was cast as Francesca Chidduck in the action-drama movie “The Way of the Gun”, alongside Benicio del Toro and Ryan Phillippe, after which she made memorable appearances in four TV series in 2001: “Felicity”, “Go Fish”, “The Outer Limits” and “Strange World”. During the next four years she featured in a number of movies such as “The Chronicles of Riddick”, “Lie With Me”, “”Burnt Toast”, Playing House” and several more. In 2006, Kristin landed the roles of Detective Danielle Carter in the TV series “Killer Instinct”, and Jane Phillips in “Prison Break”, and was then cast as Corinna Wiles in the TV series “Drive” (2007). By the end of the decade, she had also featured as Caroline Garrison in the TV movie “Backyards & Bullets” and in the video game “The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena” as a voice actor.

2010 to present

To speak further about her career, Kristin was selected to play Gwen Eaton in Netflix’s hit mystery-drama TV series “The Killing” (2011-2014) alongside Billy Campbell and Joel Kinnaman, and landed the role of Detective Angie Flynn in the TV series “Motive” from 2013 to 2016. In the next two years, she made a number of appearances in such TV series as “Rogue”, “Ghost Wars”, “Altered Carbon”, “The Good Doctor” and “The Arrangement”. It is also announced that she will appear in the upcoming short TV series “Hospital Show” as Lisa.

Personal Life, Net Worth and Appearances

Kristin aims to keep her personal life as private as possible, so the only public information about this part of her life is that she is married to voice actor Adam Greydon Reid, with whom she has a son. She’s 5ft 6ins (1.60m) tall and reputedly weighs 121lbs (52kgs). Regarding her wealth, it is estimated by authoritative sources that she counts her net worth at the impressive amount of $14 million, accumulated through her successful career 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.
