INTERVIEW: Kristin Kreuk of ‘Irvine Welsh’s Ecstasy’

Many of you may know Kristin Kreuk from her role on the hit show Smallville. Since then, she had been on the hit series Chuck, Ben Hur, and starred in Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li. I recently had the pleasure of conducting a phone interview with Kreuk to promote her new movie Irvine Welsh’s Ecstasy.

Kreuk plays the character Heather, an unhappily married young woman who decides to explore the world of raves and then meets and falls in love with Lloyd, played by Adam Sinclair (click here for his interview). In this interview, Kreuk talks about her character, what the story meant for her, and the importance of finding yourself to find happiness.

Just like her co-star, Kristin Kreuk was absolutely charming and a delight to interview. She was sweet, thoughtful, and also has great taste in superheroes! I swear, everybody from this movie is so cool. Read the interview and find out for yourself!
