“Smallville”: Chloe and Lana give college students what they want


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

. 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

seven seasons.

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

Lex developed.

“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?
