Erica Durance Undressed
Erica Durance (born 21 June 1978) is a Canadian actress. Although born in Calgary, she was raised in Three Hills, Alberta.
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 2003 she starred as Johanna in House of the Dead, from which the above topless picture is taken.
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 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).
On January 8, 2005 she married Canadian actor David Palffy. They reside in Vancouver.
