Life and careerEdit

Frøseth was born in the United States to Norwegian parents and her early life was spent travelling back and forth between Oslo, Norway and New Jersey due to her father's work.[4]

She started modelling after being discovered on a catwalk audition at Ski Storsenter in Norway,[2][5] and was also scouted by IMG Models while in New Jersey at a local mall fashion show.[1] She has modelled for brands such as Armani, Juicy Couture, Miu Miu and H&M.

Her acting career began when a casting director found her photos and encouraged her to audition for the film adaptation of John Green's novel Looking for Alaska. This film adaptation was never made. In 2016 she was cast in the pilot for a potential series adaptation of Let the Right One In.[6] Froseth began her acting career with the 2017 film Rebel in the Rye.[3][7] In 2018 she starred in two Netflix movies, Sierra Burgess Is a Loser[8] and Apostle, and a Sky mini-series, The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair.

On May 9, 2018 it was announced that Hulu would be adapting the John Green novel Looking for Alaska into an 8-episode limited series.[9] On October 30, 2018, John Green announced Kristine Froseth would be playing Alaska Young, one of the main characters.[10]
