Kristin Kreuk, Beauty and the Beast
How You Know Her: Kreuk is best known for playing Clark Kent's first true love Lana Lang on Smallville. Always one step away from finding out Clark's secret, Lana was the perpetual damsel in distress.
The tables have turned and Kreuk is now the one saving herself — and others — portraying an ass-kicking cop who teams up with a semi-beastly vigilante to investigate a shady government agency whom supposedly murdered her mother.
