Laura Dianne Vandervoort (born September 22, 1984) is a Canadian actress best known for her roles as Supergirl in the television series Smallville and Sadie Harrison in the television series Instant Star. She is currently starring as Lisa on the ABC series V.
Born in Toronto, Ontario, Vandervoort was involved in several sports (soccer/ football, karate, basketball, tennis, gymnastics, and baseball). Entering karate at age seven, she earned a second degree Black Belt from Northern Karate Schools by the age of 16.
After taking several classes and doing background work on Canadian shows such as Road to Avonlea and Harriet the Spy, she got her first speaking role in Canadian children's series Goosebumps (three episodes) and Are You Afraid of the Dark?.
After commercials and guest-starring roles on Mutant X, Prom Queen, Twice in a Lifetime, Doc, Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye, Troubled Waters, The Dresden Files, and a few Disney TV movies (Mom's Got a Date with a Vampire, and Alley Cats Strike), at age 19 Vandervoort landed a lead role as Sadie Harrison on the CTV television series Instant Star, which ran for four seasons.
In 2006, Vandervoort shot her first feature titled The Lookout with Jeff Daniels, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Matthew Goode, and Isla Fisher. Several other TV appearances such as CSI: Crime Scene Investigation led Vandervoort to the role of Clark Kent's Kryptonian cousin "Kara Kent" (the woman destined to become Supergirl) on the CW series Smallville. She was a regular in season seven, and appeared in the "Bloodline" episode for season eight.
Following the CW and Smallville, Vandervoort then shot the sequel to the feature film Into the Blue titled Into the Blue 2: The Reef. She next filmed an independent production titled The Jazzman, which also starred Canadians stars Michael Ironside (who appeared in the second V mini-series as well as the 1984 V regular series) and Corey Sevier.
Vandervoort currently portrays "Lisa," an extraterrestrial Visitor, in the 2009 ABC series V, a reboot of the 1980s science fiction franchise of the same name. Vandervoort was also cast in Riverworld in which she will play the fiancée of a war correspondent who, after dying, wakes up in a land populated by everyone who has ever lived on Earth.
