Karine Vanasse was nine when she first showed an interest in singing and acting. She appeared in the teen show Club des 100 watts after winning a lip sync competition. With the help of her mother, Renée Gamache, Vanasse began to audition for and land parts in TV commercials and minor or supporting roles in Québec made-for-television movies. While co-hosting a children’s science show, Les Débrouillards, producer Lorraine Richard and director Léa Pool spotted her and offered the young actress her first big break in the role of Hanna in Emporte-moi (1998), a story of a teenager trying to find her identity in a tormented family environment. It screened at some forty festivals around the world and Vanasse was given the Jutra Award for Best Actress in 2000. She also won a Jutra for Best Actress for her work in the 2002 film Séraphin: un homme et son péché. Karine Vanessa plays the role of Justine Laurier in the series Blue Moon.
