First film role was as a secretary in Legal Eagles.
In 1999, Kristine, her husband, and daughter, decided to move to Italy for a year.
She changed her last name from Young to Sutherland because she was often confused with another similarly named actress. The last name "Sutherland" was after her cat, whom she named "Donald" after Donald Sutherland.
Buffy creator Joss Whedon stated that one of the reasons he chose Sutherland for the role was due to her warm demeanor, as well as what he believed to be a close resemblance to actress Sarah Michelle Gellar.
Has appeared in every season of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer television series.
After Buffy, Sutherland attended a photography course at the Santa Monica College and subsequently set up a studio specializing in portraits.
