remains one of only two members of the original main cast of Smallville
who has stuck around up through this eighth season. (Tom Welling
, of course, is the other original member. You can't very well have Smallville
without Clark Kent, can you?)
Allison's character, Chloe Sullivan, is one of the best sidekicks written for television. She's smart and sassy, cute as a button, but has hacker skills to die for and a fierce, take-no-prisoners attitude that you would want in someone who is backing you up. Allison and Tom Welling have worked so closely together for so many years that it's no wonder that they can make their characters' partnership believable year after year.
undergoes major changes this season, with the changing of the guard of the showrunners and the addition of new cast and characters, so too does Chloe's character evolve. For one thing, as we learned in last week's season premiere, she realizes that Jimmy Olsen (Aaron Ashmore
) just may be the perfect man for her, and accepts his marriage proposal. In a different vein, Chloe will also be getting more opportunities to use her healing superpower. Exciting times are sure to follow on Smallville
When BuddyTV went to visit the set of Smallville
, it happened to be on Allison Mack's day off. She wasn't filming at all that day, but she agreed to come over to the set for a few minutes for an interview.
I already know what you are going to say: why is this interview so short? Yes, this video is very short because we only had a limited amount of time with Allison and therefore, we were only able to ask her two fan questions. I promise, there will be another video of Allison coming up soon that is longer and more in-depth, but please understand that actors are busy, busy people, and we were lucky that we got any time at all with her, especially since it was her day off.
I hope you enjoy this short snippet of an interview. As usual, please change your YouTube settings to “high quality” for a better viewing experience. When you watch it, please notice the Metropolis street set in the background. A stunt crew was filming a scene in which a guy gets thrown into a wall, which was just about the coolest thing I've ever seen.
Come back here this Thursday. We'll be posting our second video interview of Erica Durance
