Canadian actress Kristin Lehman, who was born in Toronto 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". Her face is a study in intelligence and wariness, as if she's seen a little too much without, however, being crushed or made completely cynical, which is perfect for her character.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) (TV). 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 both Toronto and Los Angeles.
