Mini Bio (1)

Canadian actress Kristin Lehman, who was born in New Westminster and grew up in Vancouver, has begun establishing herself in the United States after a relatively prosperous career North of the Border. Lehman played a poker sharpie called "Miami" in the American TV series "Tilt", an ESPN original set in Las Vegas' professional gambling demimonde. Recently, the unconventional beauty took over the lead female role on the Fox crime drama Killer Instinct (2005) from Marguerite Moreau, who appeared in the pilot. In this series, she plays San Francisco police detective "Marcy Hess", who teams up with a male detective, played by Johnny Messner, to solve bizarre crimes in the city known as "Bagdad by the Bay".

Well-known in her native Canada, Lehman's TV credits include Century City (2004), Kevin Hill (2004), Poltergeist: The Legacy (1996), Strange World (1999) and the mini-series Verdict in Blood (2002). She's appeared in the films The Chronicles of Riddick (2004) starring Vin Diesel and Judi Dench, The Way of the Gun (2000) with James Caan and Benicio Del Toro, Dog Park (1998) with Luke Wilson and Natasha Henstridge and Alaska (1996) with Thora Birch and Charlton Heston. She will appear in the soon-to-be-released film The Sentinel (2006) with fellow-Canandian Kiefer Sutherland.

Lehman currently lives in Vancouver.

Personal Quotes (8)

I 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.
I 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.
You have to carry so many archetypes as an actor, especially as a blonde-haired, blue-eyed one.
I 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 (2013) which aims for a broad appeal, could have that sort of emotional impact.
I ran for ninth grade class president. Came in a close second.
For Motive (2013) 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.
I'm a character actor; that's my skill set.
I'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.
