In 1996, at 17 years old, Kris Lemche fell into the acting profession on a whim. He had aspirations to be a doctor, but after responding to a casting agency's newspaper ad, he landed a small part on the short-lived family comedy "Flash Forward". He quickly shifted plans and decided to pursue acting full-time. The same year of his debut, he also had a role on the children's horror series "Goosebumps". In 1998, he landed a recurring role, playing the hired hand, on the Canadian children's drama "Emily of New Moon" and was a series regular until its cancellation in 2000. In those same years he also made several appearances in a recurring role on the spy series "La Femme Nikita". Then in 1999, he landed his first big-screen roles in three films. That year he could be seen starring in the low-budget children's fantasy "Teen Knight", in the drama "Johnny", where he received top billing, and in the David Cronenberg-directed sci-fi film "eXistenZ". He also had his second TV-movie role that year in an adaptation of "Joan of Arc". He was back on the big-screen in 2000 in two more roles--in the werewolf film "Ginger Snaps" and the drama "Saint Jude". His later films include 2006's "Final Destination 3", 2009's drama "Fault Line", and 2011's thriller "Green Guys".
