Kristina Dourif Tanoue: Daughter of Brad Dourif and Sister to Fiona Dourif

Having been born in 1976, Kristina is the oldest child of actor Brad Dourif and his first wife, Janet Stephanie Charmatz. The details of her childhood are not shared with the public. Nevertheless, since her father’s acting career started during the early 1970s, it is most probable that her childhood was impacted by the world of entertainment.


Unlike her father and her sister who have trailblazed in the entertainment industry, Kristina seems to have chosen a different career path. Her professional life is hidden.

Personal Life

Her privacy is always a priority for her. According to an article on IMDb, she is the mother of Kalani Kahalewai Dourif-Tanoue who was born in 2001. Apart from this, she keeps the details of her private life, hobbies, or interests a secret.


Net Worth

The absence of information on Kristina Dourif Tanoue’s career makes it impossible to estimate her net worth with any degree of accuracy.

Her Father, Brad Dourif

Kristina Dourif has a famous actor father, Mr. Brad Dourif, who has been working in the film industry for over 50 years. Born in 1950, he was a prodigy since his childhood. His role as Billy Bibbit in “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” (1975) got him an Oscar nomination, and in fact, made him a true heavy dramatic actor.

Dourif is generally recognized for being incredibly versatile and being able to play multifaceted characters. He has been outstanding in all villainous as well as sympathetic roles. His portrayal of the dark and cunning Gríma Wormtongue in “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy demonstrated his versatility in playing the vile, and he solidified himself as a horror icon with his voice acting role as the wicked doll Chucky in the “Child’s Play” series.

Aside from these famous roles, Dourif has made a significant mark on the cinematic and TV world with his talent. He still continues to be a prominent and popular actor, through his intense and subtle performances.

Her Sister, Fiona Dourif

Kristina’s sister, Fiona Dourif, is an actress who has also made a name for herself in the world of entertainment. Born in 1981, Fiona followed in the footsteps of her father and started her career in acting as a child. Her seminal part came in the 2013 horror movie “Curse of Chucky”, a reboot of “Child’s Play” series, which she was starred as Nica Pierce, main character.


Fiona has since developed into an omni-genre actress, proving her versatility in various genres. She has been in outstanding television shows like “Shameless” and “The Blacklist” that have just confirmed her genius as an actress. Though horror is a genre she still likes, Fiona is going outside of it. She is diversifying and proving that she is good in other roles too.

The Dourif family inheritance goes beyond Brad’s success. Kristina’s sister, Fiona, has become an actress and she is carrying the torch of artistry further in the family.
