Crystal Marie Reed (born February 6, 1985 in Detroit, Michigan) is an American actress and model. Reed was born to Native American and Polish parents. She is best known for her roles as Allison Argent in the series Teen Wolf, Sofia Falcone on Gotham, and Abby Arcane in the series Swamp Thing.


Her roles provide examples of:

  • Actor Leaves, Character Dies: She made the shocking decision to leave Teen Wolf during Season 3, despite playing the main character's Love Interest. Her character was subsequently killed off, but she helped the creative team write the death into the story so it would be meaningful rather than half-assed.
  • Dawson Casting:
    • At the age of 25, she was cast in Teen Wolf playing a high school character. Her eventual departure was partly attributed to her not wanting to play teenagers anymore when she was already pushing thirty.
    • She also played a high school character in Crush in her late 20s.
  • Nice Girl: Most of her characters are very likable, kind and sincere women. The exception is Sofia Falcone, who only appears to be that way at first.
  • Older Than They Look: She was able to easily play high school students in her late twenties and even now, looks quite a bit younger than her real age.
  • Romance on the Set: Dated her Teen Wolf costar Daniel Sharman, who played Isaac Leahy, from 2012 to 2013.
  • Statuesque Stunner: She's 5'8 and very attractive, a trait many of her roles are quick to call attention to.
