The following biography
Erica Durance (born June 21, 1978 in
Calgary, Alberta) is a Canadian actress. Although born in Calgary, she
was raised in Three Hills, Alberta. She is perhaps best known for her
role as Lois Lane on Smallville.
After graduating from high school, Durance
moved to Vancouver, British Columbia, to pursue her interest in acting
professionally. "I wanted to get my feet wet in a smaller area than Los
Angeles when I gave it a try." Durance has said. She continued to study
acting starting out with background work, graduating to commercials and
then guest starring roles, landing more substantial roles each time.
In 2004, she guest-starred on The Chris
Isaak Show, Tru Calling, Andromeda, Stargate SG-1, and The Collector.
However, she is perhaps best known for her
role as Lois Lane on the WB (now the CW) series Smallville. She was a
frequent guest-star for the fourth season of the show (2004-2005), and
joined the regular cast for the fifth season (2005-2006).
She appeared on The Howard Stern Show in
September of 2004, after she had already filmed a number of her first
episodes on Smallville. There is a lot of controversy around whether or
not she has breast implants.
Erica has also starred in several films as
Erica Parker. As Erica Parker, she appeared in a revealing scene in the
2003 horror film, House of the Dead. The controversy surrounding her
breast enlargement may come to rest with the scene since she is quite
less endowed than she is in Smallville.
She was listed as the highest new entrant
and cover girl in FHM's May 2006 issue including the World's 100 Sexiest
Women at #38.
On January 8, 2005 she married Canadian
actor David Palffy. They reside in Vancouver.
