Laura Vandervoort is a Canadian actress best known for her starring television roles as Kara Zor-El in Smallville (2007-2010), as Sadie Harrison in Instant Star (2004-2008) and as Lisa on V, from 2009-2011.

As Supergirl, Clark Kent's cousin, Vandervoort got to show off both her acting and martial arts skills. She can also be seen in the sequel to 2005's successful Into the Blue, titled Into the Blue 2: The Reef, opposite Chris Carmack and Audrina Patridge.

In 2006 Vandervoort shot her first feature film, The Lookout, opposite Jeff Daniels, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Mathew Goode and Isla Fisher.

She got her big break at age 19 when she landed the lead role of Sadie Harrison on the CTV TV series Instant Star, which ran for four seasons and was extremely popular in Canada.

Vandervoort began acting at the age of 13 - she had always been an entertainer, putting on shows for family and friends. But what triggered her interest in the arts was the film My Girl, which she received from her aunt at a very young age, and after watching it realised that acting was her calling.

Some of her other credits include CSI, The Dresden Files, Mom's Got a Date with a Vampire, Alley Cats Strike, Mutant X, Prom Queen and Twice in a Lifetime.

A tomboy for years, Vandervoort loves most sports, especially soccer, karate, basketball, tennis, gymnastics and baseball. Entering karate at age seven, she found herself with a second degree Black Belt by 16.

She currently divides her time between Los Angeles and her native Canada.
