Kristine Froseth’s Parents, Siblings, and Education- Where is she from?
The ever graceful Kristine Froseth was born in New Jersey, the United States of America, to her Norwegian parents. Due to her father’s work, the family split their time between the states and Oslo, Norway. Sadly, anything remotely disclosing their names and whereabouts are unknown at the moment.
But in her recent interview with TeenVogue, it was revealed that her mother used to be a model. It is also the reason why Kristine grew up knowing about fashion.
Likewise, Froseth was a huge fan of Tyra Banks‘ classic competition show America’s Next Top Model. The glitz and glamorous life of a model are what attracted her initially. But upon pursuing one, Kristine found out that it was not what it appeared to be.
“There were bits of it that were super glamorous; the way we can be treated on set, and flying around, and being in nice hotels. But it’s also a lot of work and discipline, and there are so many nos before you get a yes.”
As for her nationality, Kristine is American-Norwegian, while her ethnicity happens to be white.
From Model to Actress- Why Kristine Froseth chooses complex characters?
Transitioning from modelling to acting is surely not easy; despite working on the same media, they are different from each other. Young Kristine was discovered on a catwalk audition at Ski Storenter in Norway and later scouted by IMG Models in a New Jersey fashion show.
Likewise, her photos were then discovered by a casting director, Rebeccas Thomas, who encouraged her to audition for the movie adaptation of John Green’s novel Looking for Alaska. She submitted audition tapes and waited for months to play Alaska Young, a complicated and conflicted teenager. But the project did not happen, and one can imagine the heartache and frustration of Froseth, who devoted her whole time for it.
“I’d read the book before and it was a story that really meant a lot to me. So, yeah, I was really bummed.”
However, that very process to be in the movie helped her to meet her now-manager and agent. The following year, young Kristine starred in Netflix films like Sierra Burgess Is a Loser and Apostle. Recently, she starred in yet another Netflix series, a dystopian YA drama titled The Society.
But luckily, Kristine managed to grab the role of Alaska when John Green’s book was given a go on Hulu. After a long-time, the much-awaited eight episodes series was released, showcasing Frostine’s now-polished acting performance.
Kristine Froseth wishes to take more complex roles like ‘Looking for Alaska’
Since she has crossed the first hurdles, Kristine is making decisions and taking actions on how her future will be. Now a full-time actress, Frostine is choosing scripts based on the characters she could fully empathize with. Similar to her role in Alaska, who stood as the “tired literary trope” in 2005 when the book came out.
Moreover, Josh Schwartz, the executive producer, told Deadline how the series would address the book’s “male gaze” problem; and that “Alaska exists in her own right.”
To this, Kristine added, “We wanted to make clear that she has a full human beating heart. We tried to show her in more private moments, more vulnerable moments. You get a sense of who she is by herself, and you see her outside of campus with her boyfriend at this college party, and you see her out of her element, and then I think you really get a feel for why she [it’s on this tough front.”
“I hope that you do feel like she’s really just trying to find herself, and she’s really lost, and she’s grieving, and she’s not just this like magic manic pixie dream.”
Other than these acclaimed works, Kristine has appeared in series like Prey, Low Tide, The Assistant, and Birds of Paradise.
