Kristin Kreuk, star of Burden of Truth, gets grilled by CBC Arts' Amanda Parris on everything from her go-to dance move to her dream duet partner. 2:09

Burden of Truth stars Kristin Kreuk as Joanna Hanley, a high-powered lawyer who returns to her prairie hometown for an important case and ends up uncovering some family secrets. But before that brand new investigative drama (of which Kreuk is both the lead and executive producer) premieres, we wanted to get to the bottom of what the former Smallville and Beauty & the Beast star is inspired by right now. Who is her dream duet partner? Which book would she take to a desert island? These are the burning questions that we had — and we couldn't help but slip in a question about dating Superman.

In this video, Amanda Parris quizzes Kreuk in our CBC Arts Cultural Speedround to uncover a few secrets about the actress/producer herself — starting with her go-to dance move.

Burden of Truth airs on Wednesdays at 8pm/8:30NT on CBC TV and streams online here.

Watch CBC Arts: Exhibitionists on Friday nights at 12:30am (1am NT) and Sundays at 3:30pm (4pm NT) on CBC Television.
