The Hollywood divorce is no longer a news story, as the drama associated with it is always food for the media and a source of entertainment for uninvolved viewers. However, when a 12-year-old marriage that produced four children (two boys and two girls) suddenly collapses for no apparent or recognizable reason, it becomes a source of concern as the questions look for answers. Why did they separate? Whose fault was it? What about the children? Who will take custody of them? Why couldn’t they just stick together for the sake of the children? What could have been so bad? All these are questions related to the divorce of actress Alaina Huffman and her husband John Henry Huffman after they had been together for 12 years (2003 – 2016). Read on to find out the details…
Who is Alaina Huffman?
The television and film actress was born on April 17, 1980, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Her birth name is Alaina Kalanj, the surname “Huffman” is only her surname because of her marriage to the actor John Henry Huffman. She is a regular face on Canadian TV shows and is widely known for the character Maureen Bowers, who she beautifully portrays on the Canadian TV show “Painkiller Jane”.
Huffman has been interested in acting from a very young age. She attended Goulbourn Middle School in Canada and participated in her first audition for a film at the age of only thirteen. Huffman got the leading role, to the astonishment of all observers, although more professional actors were available for the same role. She also tried modeling very early in life, but could not make a career out of it because she was still living with her parents and they decided to move to the United States, which interrupted her Canadian connections in the modeling business.
Now in the USA, the family settled in Dallas, Texas, and Huffman attended college there. She had the opportunity to enter the acting world as she had some acting jobs and independent film roles in college and continued from there after college. She moved to Los Angeles and has since starred in major film projects and television series, including Smallville, Stargate Universe, and Supernatural.
If you still find out anything about the Canadian film diva, you can safely say that she looks like she’s been groomed for the entertainment industry. Her beauty, her physique, her measurements, her build, her height, etc. are all symbolic of this fact. Alaina Huffman always looks perfect in every dress she wears on her flawless body when the red carpets are decorated at events and galas. Her weight – 57 kg – is consistent with her body measurements – 34-23-35 inches. She is almost 1.80 m tall, 5’9? and the sexy combination of blonde hair and blue eyes is the icing on the cake of her fantastic looks. As mentioned before, she has Canadian citizenship and her ethnicity is white.
Her film and acting career began at a young age when she got her first acting role at her very first audition at the age of 13. The talented Alaina prevailed against all her competitors and got the leading role in the pilot episode of the Fox Family Channel. When she was fourteen years old, she was scouted by a modeling company to participate in an international fashion show in Europe and Asia, but even that was canceled because her parents had to move to the United States of America.
After she decided to pursue a career on the big screen, the roles kept coming back. She made her professional acting debut in 2001 as Cherry in the movie Indefinitely. In the same year, she got a role in another movie Pendulum. In the following years, she consistently played roles both on television and in films such as Serving Sara (2002), Quiet Desperation (2003), Night Dawn Day (2004), Standing Still (2005), Smallville (2007-2011), CSI: Miami (2008), Amber (2016), etc.
She was a regular performer in the TV series Stargate Universe (2009-2011), in which she played the character, Tamara Johansen. However, after the cancellation of the series Supernatural, she appeared in another series. Huffman played the role of Abaddon/Josie Sands in 8 episodes of the series between 2013 and 2014.
