Shocking news from the Smallville
set: Kristin Kreuk and Allison Mack are friends.
Not only do they get along
on the set, but they’re about to go into business together on a website geared to college
students. The two
are teaming up with Edgemont‘s Sarah Edmondson and
Battlestar Galactica‘s Nicki Clyne for the project and have
hit the interview circuit to talk it up. Only they won’t say exactly
what the site is.
"A lot of stuff about
the website is actually quite secret," Mack told Buddy TV. "We want to keep our ideas close
at hand so that we can really keep it unique and individual."
Meanwhile, Clyne has developed
a survey to find out what college students would like to see on the
site. I know what I’d like to see, but I doubt I’d get it even if I
lied about my age. If any AfterEllen.com collegiate types would like
to participate, here’s the link.
Kreuk and Mack also talked about their Smallville characters,
Lana Lang and Chloe Sullivan, and how they have changed over the past
Probably the most dramatic
shifts have been in Kreuk’s character Lana. When Smallville first
started, Lana seemed to be an innocent, naïve girl.
Since then, she’s gone postal
once or twice and wants to destroy her hubby, Lex Luthor. As an actress,
Kreuk couldn’t have asked for more, especially as her relationship with
"I had a lot of fun working
with Michael (Rosenbaum, who plays Lex Luthor) and got
to explore a lot of really interesting parts of this character. It was
also the first season I got some really juicy material to play with,
which I always enjoy."
Mack’s character, Chloe, is
finding a new place in life as well, although she’s still the snoopy
reporter she was when Smallville premiered.
Now, however, Chloe has discovered
her own superpower — she heals people and, in doing so, takes on their
pain. This season she is exploring that part of her. "It’s kind of
fun because it’s very similar to where Clark was in the beginning of
the show, in that all these new things are happening in her body that
she’s kind of unaware of how to handle or utilize."
Buddy TV has an mp3 of their interview with Kreuk and
Mack, in case you want to hear what else the lovely ladies had to say.
And if you like spoilers, you’ll find a few in their interview with KryptonSite.

How has Supergirl‘s presence changed the dynamic of
the show? Any hopes for where the writers will take the show once the
strike is over?
