The Accidental Actress - by Katrina Dickson
"If Kristin Kreuk has her school years to live over again - which she does, sort of - she might do things differently. Barely two years ago, she was impatiently counting the days before she could flee Vancouver's Eric Hamber Secondary school and enroll in university, when life played a cosmic joke. At the urging of her drama teacher, she auditioned and won the role of Laurel on the edgy CBC-TV high school series, Edgemont. Then WB, producers of the U.S. network hit Smallville, came courting, and Kreuk landed the role of Lana Lang, high school cheerleader and love interest of Superboy Clark Kent."

Super Woman: Canada's Starlet Kristin Kreuk is on the track from Smallville to Bigville - by Sarah Reeder
"Kristin Kreuk looks a little like a turtle, with her bulging backpack, black turtleneck and almond-shaped hazel eyes, quietly slipping into a Vancouver photography studio ... At 5' 4", the 19 year old is even tinier than she looks on TV, with perfect skin and thick, straight, brown hair ... Kristin is so down-to-earth it's tempting to forget she's also a rising star ..."

Vancouver Magazine - September 2002
The Star Next Door - by Alisa Smith
"She doesn't really like to be noticed. But Kristin Kreuk is, like a Russian sub in American waters. An undeniable radar pull. She has perfect skin, a mega-watt smile, dimples, doe eyes. In the Vancouver-shot WB series Smallville - which thrived in the brutal TV rating war during its first year - she stars as Lana Lang, love interest of the young Superman ... the striking Vancouverite graces magazine covers from here to Europe, and has already fielded feature film offers. She's this season's Bright Young Thing."

Banana Mag - Spring 2002
Willing Grace: Witty and ebullient, Grace Park is miles away from the uptight brainiac she plays on Television. Meet Edgemont's sexiest nerd - by Christine Miguel
"Her personal best is dancing for 20 hours straight, good practice for the opening scene of Romeo Must Die, where her slinky, homoerotic pas de deux exuded more heat than the remaining 2 hours of film. Clearly Grace Park is in no danger of being typecast as the brainy and ambitious overachiever Shannon Ng on CBC's high school drama Edgemont."

Rolling Stone - March 2002
Tall Tales From Smallville - by Erik Hedegaard
... "Kristin Kreuk is wearing tight flare jeans and a white shawl-collar sweater, her long, dark hair pinned up with shoots and tendrils dropping; being half Dutch and half Chinese, she is totally dewy to look at. It is little wonder, then, that the Neutrogena people recently chose her to be their new spokesmodel ..."

The Cover Girl Next Door - by Greg Potter
"Over the past two years she's gone from Honour role senior at Vancouver's Eric Hamber High to starring roles in CBC's Edgemont, WB's Smallville, and the ABC TV flick Snow White: The Fairest Of Them All. Over the past six months, she has been dubbed one of the year's "Hottest New Stars" by U.S. pop-cult barometers Entertainment Weekly, E! Online, Hollywood.com and USA Today. Over the past 30 days she has sat for interviews and posed for photo shoots with People, Teen People and Seventeen Magazines. Her name is Kristin Kreuk and, at 19, she is less consumed by all the media attention then downright mystified."

Reel West - December 2001
Class Act - by Ian Caddell
"Will Edgemont be the jumpboard? Kristin Kreuk is on the verge of Stardom. She is shooting the third season of Edgemont while commuting to the suburban set of the WB network's Smallville. In mid-November she was scheduled to sit for a cover photo for Rolling Stone Magazine. And before the month was over she will star as Snow White in the television movie (sic). Regina native Sarah Lind had a regular role in Alberta's Mentors and Saskatchewan's The Incredible Story Studio. Toronto's Dominic Zamprogna was already a veteran with appearances in the series PSI Factor and The Wind At My Back and the feature film, The Boy's Club. Vanessa King received a Gemini nomination for Best Performance in a Children's or Youth Program or Series. Vancouver's Grace Park came to it from roles in the series The Immortal and Secret Agent Man. Richmond's Micah John Gardener was in Carpool and episodes of Cold Squad, Millennium and The Odyssey."

Article in Radar: girl uninterrupted - by Alisa Smith
"When 18 year old Kristin Kreuk wakes up - well it's like she's still dreaming. What will she be today? Snow White, waking up for her prince in an ABC TV miniseries airing this fall? Or Lana Lang, love interest to the teenage Superman, in the ambitious new WB series Smallville? Or will she just be herself, a wide-eyed beauty who never planned to be an actress and who just happens to have a lifelong love of fairy tales, from the Littlest Mermaid to the cult hit The Princess Bride?"

The not-so-junior highs - by Leah McLaren
"Although aimed at young audiences, the new teen-angst TV shows are attracting an adult following too ... The CBC series Edgemont, now in its second season, has enjoyed some ... accidental grownup following. I count myself among the ranks of those who have become emotionally involved with the sensitive, angst-ridden teens featured on the drama."
