The CW Promotes "Smallville's" Supergirl
The CW has released an official poster for the seventh season of "Smallville" scheduled to begin on September 27 at 8/7c along with some promotional stills of the veteran drama's much-anticipated new character Supergirl, portrayed by Laura Vandervoort.
In an interview with Sci-Fi Wire at Comic-Con International in San Diego, CA, Vandervoort revealed that her character Kara (a.k.a. Supergirl) was much older than Clark Kent (Tom Welling), but that will no longer be so once she reunites with him on Earth:
"He was a baby. We were both sent [to Earth], and I got trapped in suspended animation and didn't age. I come out of my ship looking for a baby, and see this 6-foot-3-inch beautiful man, and I don't believe that is him," she says.
"It's an interesting dynamic, because he's older on Earth, and I'm older on Kypton. On Earth, he is telling me how to control my powers and be human and respect people. But I am explaining Krypton to him, things he didn't even know about his mother, who I was very close to."
Vandervoort who recently appeared on CSI and The Dresden Files is booked for 7 episodes this fall. Now, speaking of Clark's age - seeing the promo poster at the top, I have realized for the first time how much the boy wonder has aged since the show began in 2001.
