Kristanna Loken (1511 words)
Kristanna Loken was born in 1979 and though she is unmistakably of Norwegian origin, she was raised on an organic fruit farm in upstate New York.
During her childhood, Kristanna Loken was exposed to both public and private schools and tried her hand at several activities including singing, acting and dancing lessons.
Loken's assets as a model are obvious, but it is her acting that will have to emerge as a force, once gravity and age set in.
Paul Fischer Interviews Kristanna Loken (1968 words)
Kristanna: Well, it was the last night of filming, which was great for me because I really got to fine tune my body and make it look the way I wanted it to look.
Kristanna: They work a lot with building internal energy and working against a force, so your muscles are always engaged and you learn to alienate different muscle groups so they can work independently of one another.
Kristanna: Not that I ever doubted, but the very last night after the Rodeo drive scene, it was then dawn and I think it was more of an emotional release than anything.
