Karine Vanasse (born November 24, 1983 in Drummondville, Quebec) is a French Canadian actress. Vanasse is the daughter of council worker Conrad Vanasse and Renée Gamache, now her manager. From as young as 9 years old, Vanasse expressed her desire to become a singer or an actress one day. That desire became an ambition when she appeared in Quebec's teen show Club des 100 watts after winning a "lip sync" competition. It was then, with the help of her mother and TV show host France Beaudoin, that she began to audition and take part in TV commercials as well as playing minor and supporting roles in French Canadian TV movies.
