Early Life and Acting Career
Born on June 21, 1978 in Calgary, Canada, Erica Durance left for Vancouver, British Columbia following her high school graduation to pursue acting professionally. Though other aspiring actors go straight to Los Angeles to audition for film and television roles, she chose to be in a smaller area for an initial experience. She was trained at the The Yaletown Actors Lab.
She started her career doing background acting, then to appearing in television commercials. Her first guest role was in the sitcom The Chris Isaak Show in 2004. That same year, she made guest appearances in other television shows, including Tru Calling, Andromeda, Stargate SG-1, and The Collector.
Her breakthrough happened also in 2004 after being cast for the role of Lois Lane in Smallville. She started as a recurring cast on the show’s Season 4 and became a regular cast from seasons 5 to 10 (2004-2011). Her performance as Lois Lane earned her two Saturn Award nominations, one was for Best Actress and the other was for Best Supporting Actress.
After Smallville finished up in 2011, she was cast as Samantha Masters on the television remake of Charlie’s Angels, though production of the series ended immediately due to poor ratings and negative reviews. In 2012, she started playing the role of Dr. Alex Reid on the Canadian series Saving Hope, for which she received a Gemini Award nomination for Best Actress in a Drama Series.
As a film actress, she made her theatrical debut in 2003’s House of the Dead. She next played Julie Miller in the 2006 film The Butterfly Effect 2. She has also starred in several made-for-television films, including I Me Wed, which got her a Gemini Award nomination for Best Actress in a Miniseries or Television Film. Her most recent work on the big screen was in the 2012 movie Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie and in the 2015 independent feature Painkillers.
Has Erica Durance had Plastic Surgery?
The 36-year-old Canadian beauty wouldn’t be chosen as Clark Kent’s lady love Lois Lane in Smallville if she didn’t have that astounding beauty in her. The said role was what made her a household name among international viewers and she continues to be remembered as such. The thing is, there are rumors claiming that the actress’ natural beauty has stopped being natural as a result of plastic surgery.
According to reports, Durance attempted to present a sexier image with the help of a breast augmentation. Observers noted that the actress’ breasts are fuller than before. Of course, the more prominent cleavage gave the celebrity a more seductive look. If these rumors were true, her attempt to establish herself as a more alluring female star didn’t go well as apparently, she hasn’t made any provocative roles on television and the big screen. That or she didn’t have a boob job.
Then, of course, there are also reports claiming that Durance has had a nose job as well. Rumors of her rhinoplasty procedure started when viewers noticed how her nose has gone different from its original appearance. As some have said, her nose looks to have been reshaped to achieve a more polished and sharper look. These plastic surgery rumors about the actress may be refusing to die down, but the Smallville star has remained steady in her stance to ignore them.
