Kristina has worked as both a character actor and leading lady in over 60 productions of film & television in both the US and Europe, playing across all genres and all platforms. She’s had the privilege of working with industry heavy-weights the likes of Spike Lee, Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, Kevin Hart, Griffin Dunne, Dolph Lundgren, Paul Sorvino, Tom DiCillo, Barry Bostwick, William Forsythe, Brad Dourif, Henry Rollins, David Hasselhoff, Franco Nero, Marc Harmon, Isabella Rossellini, Colman Domingo and David Harbour.
Her love for acting began as a teenager on the Off-Broadway stages of NYC, where she performed at The Public Theater, NY Theater Workshop, 59E59, MTC, Soho Rep and was a member of the Jean Cocteau Repertory, where she played Juliet in Romeo & Juliet.
In 2013, Kristina received much critical praise for her depiction of the tough-as-nails psychopath Anika in Zack Parker’s TIFF hit PROXY. In December 2015, The New York Times chose her film DEMENTIA, which she also cast, as New York Times Critic’s Pick of the week and her performance in the lead role was likened to Kathy Bates in Misery.
In January 2016, Kristina was nominated as best German actress at the prestigious Jupiter Awards in Berlin for her performance in Oscar winner Jochen Alexander Freydank’s Kafka adaptation DER BAU.
She can most recently be seen as the historical character Leni Riefenstahl in Neil Marshall’s remake of HELLBOY and across from Tanner Buchanan (Cobra Kai) in Marvista’s successful LIFETIME movie SINISTER SEDUCTION. She is a RECURRING LEAD on the German ZDF series PROFESSOR T.
