Kristanna Loken Net Worth $8 Million
Kristanna Loken spent her childhood on the family farm in upstate New York, with her older sister, where she was raised by her father, Merlin Chris Loken, who was an author and farmer, and her mother, Rande Loken, a former fashion model.
Her mother influenced Kristanna to begin her career as a fashion model, so she signed a contract with the agency Elite Model Management in 1994, appearing at the competition Elite Model Look, in which she finished as the third runner up. This marked the beginning of an increase of her net worth.
Thanks to her beauty, Kristanna’s professional acting career began later that year, when she made her debut appearance as Danielle Andropoulos in the TV series “As The World Turns”. In 1996 she was chosen to play Sable O’Brien in the TV series “Unhappily Ever After” (1996-1997), and then won the role of Jennifer Bassett in another TV series, entitled “Boy Meets World” (1996-1998). By the end of the decade, Kristanna had also starred as Taja in “Mortal Kombat: Conquest” (1998-1999), and she was selected to portray Sarah Logan in “D.C.” (2000). All of these roles added a considerable amount to her net worth.
Kristanna’s first role in the new millennium came in 2001, when she starred in the role of Angie in Art Camacho’s film “Gangland”, which was followed by the role of A.D.A. Lisa Walensky in the TV series “Philly” (2001-2002). In the following year came her breakthrough role, when she appeared as the cyborg T-X in the film “Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines”, for which she won an MTV Movie Award in 2004, when she also won Short Film Award in the category for Best Supporting Actress in “Worn Like A Tattoo”. Two years later, she appeared as Zepher Genesee in the film entitled “Lime Salted Love”, which earned her a Feature Film Award in 2008. She also starred in “Painkiller Jane” (2007), portraying the title role, and in “The L World” (2007-2008), playing Paige Sobel, all of which increased her net worth by a large margin.
To speak further about her career, Kristanna was cast in “Burn Notice” from 2011 to 2012, playing CIA agent Rebecca Lang, and appeared in the 2014 film “Mercenaries”, alongside Vivica A. Fox and Zoë Bell. Most recently, she has starred in such film titles as “Body Of Deceit” (2015) and “Beyond The Game” (2016), and her net worth is certainly rising.
When it comes to speak about her personal life, Kristanna Loken was married to actor Noah Danby from 2008 to 2009, when she announced that she was in a relationship with a woman. In 2016, she gave birth to a son; the name of the father is unknown in the media.
Practices a form of yoga called "Bikram". She also has a black belt in the Israeli martial art Krav Maga.
Kristanna's ancestry is half Norwegian and half German. Kristanna's father is of three quarters Norwegian and one quarter German ancestry, while Kristanna's mother is of three quarters German and one quarter Norwegian ancestry.
Took a mime class to prepare for her role in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003). Because her "T-X" character has so few lines (and all within the first 25 minutes of the movie), she had to learn to communicate through facial expressions and body gestures.
When I got the job [Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003)], my manager said, "Kristanna, just enjoy this last year of anonymity, because afterward you're not going to be able to pump your own gas." I feel ready. Why not?
[on Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003)] In the back of my mind I kept thinking, "I'm fighting Arnold [Arnold Schwarzenegger] and I've got to be naked in front of the world." So that was enough incentive. I would work, like, 20 hours and work out constantly in my gym and my trailer because of the "birthing" scene, as I call it.
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.
