Oldie But, Goodie: Kristin Kreuk and Jay Ryan were interviewed by Jen Dalton from TheCW Cincinnati, Ohio station back in October of last year. In the interview, they talked about their roles in 'Beauty and the Beast' and their fan experience at ComicCon. Kristin also talked about her martial arts skills and Lana Lang!

"Jen Dalton: Kristin, you're no stranger obviously to TheCW we saw you for many seasons on 'Smallville' as Lana Lang. So, this is very familiar territory doing kind of a supernatural kind of show for you but, this also seems very different than your Lana character. She was very sweet. This character although may seem sweet, but is also very seems kind of gritty and strong and I know you had to do some martial arts in the show as well. What kind of training did you have to do to prepare for this role?
Kristin Kreuk: Well, its funny because I....Yeah, Lana was incredibly sweet and wonderful and all those things and I think for me I grew up doing martial arts. Like I was in Karate from like 3rd grade to 10th grade and I also you know, did gymnastics and dance. So, all of that training is coming to play for Catherine for me. I get to just...and I did this movie 'Street Fighter' as well, so I did a bunch of training for that. So, all of those things, that I am actually fairly capable with, I get to utilize which I didn't as much with Lana, although I did a little bit."
One of my favorite Kristin and Jay interviews!
