Kristin Fairlie (born April 2, 1985[citation needed]) is a Canadian actress and former child actress. In 1998 she won a Young Artist Award for Best Ensemble for her lead role in the Showtime original movie The Sweetest Gift. As a voice actress, Fairlie has voiced the roles of the title character in Little Bear, Bridgette in Total Drama, Carrie in Total Drama Presents: The Ridonculous Race, and Emma in Stoked.

Biography[edit]

Fairlie made her feature film debut in The Scarlet Letter. In 1999 she was among the winners of the Youth in Film Awards for Best Performance in a TV Movie/Pilot/Made-for-Video: Young Ensemble for her role in the Showtime television film The Sweetest Gift.[1] Since then she appeared in the film The Virgin Suicides.

Fairlie voiced the main character of Nicole on the cartoon series Madeline.[2][3] Since then she has lent her voice to many cartoons but she is best known as the voice of Little Bear in the animated series Little Bear[4] and The Little Bear Movie. She starred as young Babar in the animated Feature film Babar: King of the Elephants, and appeared on the film's soundtrack. She is the voice of surfer girl Bridgette on the series Total Drama, Emma on Stoked and Carrie in Total Drama Presents: The Ridonculous Race. Fairlie joined the cast of the Cartoon Network/Teletoon animated series Detentionaire. Other cartoons include Skyland, The Dating Guy, 6teen, Pearlie, Skatoony and Peg + Cat.

Fairlie has made guest appearances on TV series like Heartland, Murdoch Mysteries, The Eleventh Hour, and Goosebumps. Her guest-starring role on the series Flashpoint was noted by Kate Taylor of The Globe and Mail as "a chillingly convincing performance as a teenage bully".[5] Fairlie appeared on the teen series renegadepress.com, and following the end of the series, she joined the cast of Nickelodeon’s Instant Star to play Megan, the villain of the final season.[citation needed]

Fairlie starred in the Made for television film Gracie's Choice opposite Kristen Bell, Anne Heche and Diane Ladd. Fairlie later appeared in the award-winning indie comedy You Might as Well Live as untalented pop singer Stormy Blaze – her performance of Stormy's first single garnered her a mention by Variety's Dennis Harvey: "though the soundtrack standout (duly reprised under closing credits) is "Stormy Blaze," aka the sister’s hilariously heinous debut single."[6] In 2011 Fairlie appears in a cameo in the indie comedy Moonpoint, and in the Julia Roberts produced film Jesus Henry Christ.[citation needed]
