Karine Vanasse

Karine Vanasse (born 24 November 1983) is a French Canadian actress. She was a cast member of the ABC TV series Pan Am who played the role of Colette Valois. Vanasse is the daughter of council worker Conrad Vanasse and Renée Gamache, who was her manager at the beginning of her career. Vanasse was born in Drummondville, Québec. At the age of nine, Vanasse expressed her desire to sing or to act. Vanasse fulfilled that wish when she appeared in Québec's teen show Club des 100 watts after winning a "lip sync" competition. It was then, with the help of her mother, that she began to audition for, and take part in, TV commercials, and to play minor and supporting roles in French Canadian TV movies. In 1998, what is now known as the Motion International production company asked Vanasse to co-host the once-popular Québec-based children's science show, Les Débrouillards, in an attempt to re-brand its "comeback" with a new, friendlier image. Producer Lorraine Richard and director Léa Pool spotted her there, and offered Vanasse her first big break in the role of Hanna in Emporte-moi (1999), a story of a teenager trying to find her identity in a tormented family environment.
