Natassia Malthe was born January 19, 1974, in Norway. Raised by her single mother, she and her sister Kristin passed their summers lounging around the country’s beaches as they worked on their tans. Apart from the company of her immediate family, however, Natassia admits she was something of a loner. “I didn’t have any friends, and I never went to the class parties,” she says. “It gets boring to me when people talk about clothing brands or what boat they’re going to buy next summer.”

Freed from the monotony of petty conversation, Natassia invested her energy in the arts instead, quickly becoming an accomplished singer and dancer. Following high school, she studied musical theater in London before moving to Canada where she continued her studies at the prestigious Goh Ballet Academy and the Royal Winnipeg Ballet.

It was in the Great White North that Natassia also kick-started her professional acting career, thanks to a small role in the sci-fi series Viper in 1996. Additional roles followed over the next two years in the television series Millennium and First Wave, and the film Disturbing Behavior (1998), a Katie Holmes thriller that not even Tom Cruise bothered to see.

In order to supplement her income, Natassia also began modeling, appearing in ads for Axe deodorant and Johnson & Johnson’s pH 5.5 body wash, as well as sexy pictorials for men’s magazines such as Maxim and Stuff.  Although subsequent photo shoots gave her additional spending money, they also impacted negatively upon her desire to become a serious actress. "A lot of people couldn't get past the model thing," she laments.

A victim of her own good looks, Natassia spent the next several years of her career playing roles like “Redhead at Party,” “Girl in Bed,” “French Maid,” and “Dirty Dancer.” Although her screen time was limited, she did at least have the good fortune of appearing in notable productions such as 40 Days and 40 Nights (2002), Stark Raving Mad (2002), Halloween: Resurrection (2002), and A Guy Thing (2003).

After several years of blink-and-you’ll-miss-her film appearances, Natassia finally received her major breakthrough in 2005 when she was cast in the Daredevil spin-off, Elektra. Playing villainess Typhoid Mary, she delivered one of the sexiest kisses in cinematic history when she locked lips with the film’s star, Jennifer Garner. Although the scene had moviegoers talking long after the credits rolled, it was just another day at the office for Natassia. “When I’m in professional mode, I do the best job that I can,” she explains. “If that takes climbing up that 10-storey ladder or kissing Jennifer, I live the part.”

In addition to netting her thousands of new (and mostly male) fans, Natassia’s impressive performance in Elektra also lead to a plethora of new opportunities. In 2005 alone she starred in the films Bound by Lies, Awake and La belle dame sans merci, while also finding time to appear in television programs, such as Confessions of a Sociopathic Social Climber and Bloodsuckers.

In 2006, she was cast in the action-adventure film DOA: Dead or Alive, the terrifying horror flick Skinwalkers and the crime thriller Chaos, starring Ryan Phillippe and Wesley Snipes.
