Raised on an organic fruit farm in upstate New York, Kristanna Loken was raised by her mother Rande, a former model, and father Chris, a novelist and screenwriter. Her time was spent riding horses and studying dance, and when she was 15, Kristanna decided to follow in her mother's footsteps and become a model. Loken not only established herself in the modeling world, but immediately began landing television work, including a recurring role on the long-running daytime soap opera As the World Turns (1994), followed by a regular role on the ABC-TV series Aliens in the Family (1996). As well, she began to chalk up guest appearances on hit shows such as Law & Order, Boy Meets World and Star Trek: Voyager. From 1996 to 1997 she played Sable O'Brien on the WB TV series Unhappily Ever After, then switched to the new TV series Pensacola: Wings of Gold from 1997 to 1998. She landed yet another recurring role in a TV series with Mortal Kombat: Conquest for the 1998 to 1999 season. Her sixth series in a row was WB's D.C., playing Sarah Logan. In 2000, Loken made her film debut in the independent movie Gangland (2000), followed by two more independent films, Panic (2001) and Academy Boyz (2001).
From 2001 to 2002, she played the recurring guest role of A.D.A. Lisa Walensky in several episodes of the ABC-TV series Philly. Her breakthrough film role came when she was chosen to play the killer robot T-X in the Hollywood blockbuster Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003), opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger. Loken still lives in the New York area, where she has her own horse.
