Kristanna Loken

Kristanna Sommer Loken or Kristanna Sommer Løken (born October 8,[1] 1979) is an American actress best known for her role in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, as well as her work in both film and television, and as a former fashion model. Loken was born in Ghent, New York, the daughter of Rande Porath, a model, and Merlin "Chris" Loken, a writer and apple farmer. Both her paternal and maternal grandparents were born in Norway and immigrated to Wisconsin's Norwegian American community. Loken is also of part German ancestry. She grew up on her parents' fruit farm in Upstate New York. She has a sister named Tanya. Loken started her acting career in 1994, playing "Danielle 'Dani' Andropoulos #3" on an episode of As The World Turns, and she appeared in several television shows and films, including regular appearances on the television shows Philly, Unhappily Ever After, Mortal Kombat: Conquest, and Boy Meets World. She is probably best known for her performance as the android T-X (Terminatrix) in the 2003 movie Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. In 2004, she appeared in a German television movie, Die Nibelungen (also known as "Sword of Xanten"), which aired as a 2-part mini-series and set a ratings record. Subsequently, she starred as the leading character in the 2006 film version of the video game BloodRayne, and appeared in director Uwe Boll's film version of the video game Dungeon Siege, called In the Name of the King. She appeared in 10 episodes of the fourth season of The L Word, which debuted in January 2007. Additionally, she also stars as the title character in SciFi Channel's series Painkiller Jane which began airing in April 2007. Loken stated in an interview with Curve magazine, "I have dated and have had sex with men and women and have to say that the relationships I have had with certain women have been much more fulfilling, sexually and emotionally, than of those with certain men... I connect with an aura, with energy. And if the person with whom I connect happens to be a female, that's just the way it is. That's what makes my wheels turn." Loken first generated public speculation about her sexuality when she kissed musician Pink at the World Music Awards in Monte Carlo. The Advocate and other LGBT news sources in November 2006 reported Loken might be in a romantic relationship with actress Michelle Rodriguez, her co-star in Bloodrayne. Asked about the relationship in April 2007, Kristanna Loken said, "We're great friends. She'll always remain a great, close friend of mine. I'll always love Michelle." She was trained in Krav Maga, an Israeli martial art, prior to starting the film Terminator 3.
