Being Erica’s Erin Karpluk plays Anna Benoit, the new girlfriend to lead Eddie Saville (David Giuntoli) on A Million Little Things airing on ABC & the W Network Wednesday nights at 10/9C, streaming on Hulu.
Erin can also be seen on all five seasons of Family Channel’s award-winning series Holly Hobbie premiering throughout the year in Canada, and on Disney Channel and Universal Kids in the US.
Award-winning actress Erin Karpluk is pleased to add her role as Anna Benoit on ABC’s A Million Little Things to her long list of TV and film credits. Anna was first introduced as a sex offender’s wife, but the producers enjoyed Erin’s portrayal so much that they wrote her into a much more involved recurring arc. Once Anna discovers the truth about her husband Peter (Andrew Leeds) when he is exposed, she files for divorce and begins a new chapter dating Eddie, played by Grimm’s David Giuntoli. They have a deeply vulnerable and at times awkward journey finding support in each other as their relationship unfolds. Anna finds strength after her husband’s betrayal, and Eddie learning to navigate life in a wheelchair after a car accident finds these two on a delicate but beautiful path to find love again. Both characters struggle with addiction, which covers just one of the poignant and hard themes the series explores. Originally only booked for a few episodes at the end of Season 3, Erin’s character became a staple appearing in almost every episode of Season 4. A Million Little Things can be seen on ABC and the W Network in Canada on Wednesday nights at 10/9C and streaming on Hulu. The first three seasons can be found on Amazon Prime & Citytv / Global TV.
With almost 100 titles on IMDb, Erin has enjoyed a versatile career playing a myriad of leading roles in every genre. Currently, Erin’s character Katherine runs the Hobbie family in all 5 seasons of Family Channel’s award-winning series Holly Hobbie premiering Season 3-5 throughout 2022, airing in the US on the Disney Channel and Universal Kids. 2021 kept Erin busy shooting guest spots on NBC’s Debris, and the CW’s Nancy Drew and Two Sentence Horror Story.

Alberta-born Karpluk first started to make waves after landing a part in FOX’s Dark Angel, for which award-winning director James Cameron handpicked her to play the pregnant X5 Gem. Karpluk received her first big break when she booked the Series Lead playing “Kate” on Godiva’s, which earned her a 2006 Gemini nomination for Best Actress in a Dramatic Series. This notoriety led Erin to star as ‘Erica’ in the hit CBC series Being Erica, which had 4 seasons airing in over 180 countries. Her performance garnered a Gemini Award for Best Actress in 2009, a Leo Award for Best Lead Actress in a Dramatic Series in 2010, along with 5 more performance nominations.

Erin is busy with roles in both the US and Canada. She was born and raised in the heart of the Canadian Rockies in beautiful Jasper National Park with the wilderness as her backyard playing hockey, skiing, backcountry hiking, and skating on frozen lakes. Erin remains an avid nature lover and is always excited to explore every city she films in. After graduating as a theatre major from UVIC Erin moved to Vancouver where her television/film career happened very quickly. She loves to stay active and has participated in triathlons, marathons, and a half-ironman in Hawaii, where she raised awareness and funds for the BCSPCA and World Vision. As an avid traveler, Erin is thrilled to have worked in Scotland, Prague, Honduras, Japan, Mexico, Hawaii, various cities in the US including LA, and almost every major city in Canada (Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto, Sudbury, St. John’s).
