Actress Kristin Kreuk has made a name for herself in supernatural-themed shows like Smallville and Beauty and the Beast, but in her new CBC show Burden of Truth, Kreuk roots herself in something that isn't about superpowers or fantastical events.

Kreuk plays a hotshot lawyer who returns to the small town she grew up in and realizes she has some unresolved issues from her family's past. Tom Power talks to Kreuk about why it's so refreshing for her to be rooted in reality on a project, and what it's meant for her to be involved in a series that is female-driven in front of and behind the camera.
