Season 3 SABC2 (*192) 23:00 & 00:00 Sci-fi
“It is make or break for Allison this season,” teases Crystal Reed. The 32-yearold’s hunter character Allison Argent will be facing off with the worst that sci-fi show Teen Wolf (2011-current) can throw at her but it’s nothing that Crystal can’t handle, joking that “I’ve got lots of scars from rollerskating in my youth. I was covered in bruises all the time – I know how to take a knock!”
If it ever pops up, “I wouldn’t even 1
need a contract – I’d totally do a spin-off show about Allison and her family,” says the actress.
At the same time, she isn’t a fan 2
of celebrity culture and admits, “I am glad that I’m not Tyler [Posey – Teen Wolf’s lead star] because he can’t walk to the shops without being recognised.”
Crystal grew up in Detroit, Michi3
gan and wanted to be a professional dancer. She even majored in dance while studying Fine Arts at Wayne State University and graduated in 2005.
She keeps in shape with yoga and 4
gymnastics “and it’s hard work,” laughs Crystal. That’s because she has a weakness for ice cream, “Especially if it’s been scooped properly. You know, you dip the scoop in warm water and it’s a perfect, round bite of delicious!”
Another thing she’s a sucker for is 5
brunettes with dimples. She dated Teen Wolf co-star Daniel Sharman (Isaac) from 2011 to 2013, before dating Aussie TV personality and music critic Darren McMullen.
And as much as she 6
loves work, Crystal Crystal’s co-star ex prefers travelling to places Daniel Sharman. like Hawaii to sitting in front of “a box”. Her instagram account @crystalmreed is filled with her holiday snaps.
