Actress and model Kristanna Loken was born today, October 8, in 1979. She is best known for her roles in the films Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, BloodRayne, and Bounty Killer.
Loken started her acting career in 1994 as the third actress to play Danielle 'Dani' Andropoulos on an episode of As the World Turns.
She appeared in 10 episodes of the fourth season of The L Word, which debuted in January 2007. Additionally, she starred as the title character in the Sci-Fi Channel's series Painkiller Jane, which aired from April to September 2007. In December 2011, Loken appeared in the fifth-season finale of the USA Network TV series Burn Notice as CIA agent Rebecca Lang, and would reprise that role in three sixth-season episodes during mid-2012.
She stated in an interview with Curve magazine: "I have dated and have had sex with men and women, and have to say that the relationships I have had with certain women have been much more fulfilling, sexually and emotionally, than of those with certain men... I connect with an aura, with energy. And 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."
On January 17, 2008, Loken announced on her Web site that she had become engaged to her Painkiller Jane co-star Noah Danby. The couple were on May 10, 2008. In an interview published on November 16, 2009, she announced that she had separated from Danby and was dating a woman.
