 Kreuk Has Faith In Earthsea

Kristin Kreuk, who stars in SCI FI Channel's upcoming original miniseries Legend of Earthsea, told SCI FI Wire that she plays a priestess who ascends quickly to the top of her order. "She's an actual priestess," Kreuk said in an interview. "A young priestess who ends up becoming named the next high priestess, which is sort of like your mother [superior]. But she's really young and quite shocked by this news, because there's somebody else in the order who probably she thinks should have gotten that high priestess position. But Mother Thar, who is played by Isabella [Rossellini], believes in her, and so she is training to become high priestess."

Kreuk (Smallville) co-stars with Shawn Ashmore (X-Men), Rossellini and Danny Glover in the four-hour miniseries, which is based on the beloved Earthsea books by SF author Ursula K. Le Guin. Kreuk's character, Tenar, is an orphan girl who finds herself at the center of major events in her order and her world. "She's strong," Kreuk said. "She has her beliefs, and she sticks by them, and she's willing to fight for them. But she's a little different from a lot of the other priestesses in the sense that she's a little more laid back. She can relax a bit more and laugh, and she gets affected by things a bit more. But she is still a product of being raised in an environment where it is all about your faith. So she's still very self-contained, but incredibly strong." Legend of Earthsea premieres Dec. 13 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
