TVGuide has a piece up about Smallville’s final season concerning Laura Vandervoort and her reappearance as Clark’s cousin Kara Zor-El. The actress may have left the show for a feature part in ABC’s remake of the sci-fi hit V (great show, by the way, the current one, never saw the original), but she’s going to be one of the many, MANY guest stars this season.
“Kara returns in a very heroic way. When I found out this could be my last episode, I thought it would be great to see a quick glimpse of her in the uniform before she takes off.”
That’s what the actress had to say, but according to executive producer Kelly Souders…
“You really see her as Supergirl. Not the whole outfit, but her wardrobe will have evolved even a little more than Clark’s. She’s less Kara and way more Supergirl.”
And we’re also informed that after making a public debut akin to the one that Superman should be making, Kara finds herself a media darling. How does the Girl of Steel handle it? Laura had a bit more to say.
“You’ll see Kara in the brunette wig and glasses as a bit of an homage to her other identity from the comics, Linda Lee Danvers.”
Yep, full on disguise. Awesome, right? Of course, she left off with one last little tease.
“Kara has a lot of input down the road in Clark’s transformation into Superman.”
