Cast Of Smallville: Where Are They Now?
Smallville had a good run – a great run actually – lasting 10 seasons and along the way taking the title of longest running science-fiction series in American television history. Unfortunately it had to end eventually and sadly for fans, not many of the show’s stars went on to become a-list celebrities, which is often the case for many actors and actresses after portraying the same role for so long. It’s been four years since we’ve had Tom Welling to save us, or since we watched Michael Rosenbaum portray one of the best Lex Luthor’s in Superman history, so we decided to find out what is going on with our favorite group of Smallville residents now.
Erica Durance (Lois Lane)
Erica Durance took on the iconic role of Daily Planet reporter and Clark Kent/Superman’s love interest in Smallville, entering the show as a guest star in season 4 before being credited as a series regular in season 5 and she continued in the role until the show ended in 2011. Luckily for Durance, 36, she had little time in between starring in successful shows as in 2012 she was cast in the lead role of Dr. Alex Reid in the CTV original series Saving Hope, a medical drama that incorporates the supernatural. Although she is starring in the show, as well as producing, as it continues on in its fourth season, she also starred in a Hallmark TV movie Wedding Planner Mystery and also has a role in an upcoming film dubbed Painkillers. Durance married fellow Canadian actor, writer and director David Palffy in January 2008 and gave birth to the couple’s first child, a son, in February 2014.
John Glover (Lionel Luthor)
Actor John Glover was well known for various villainous roles before being cast as the father of Superman’s arch nemesis Lex Luthor in Smallville. Due to the fact the show began with a friendship between Lex and Clark, Lionel took on the role of the villain for much of the series, appearing in the show first as a guest star and then series regular from seasons two to seven before returning as a parallel universe character Darkseid in the tenth and final season. Following the end of Smallville, Glover has continued acting, appearing in many shows including The Blacklist, Perception and Agent Carter and appeared in several episodes of The Good Wife as Jared Andrews. He has two movies in the works including We Go On, co-starring former Smallville actress Annette O’Toole. Glover is in a long-term relationship with his partner, sculptor Adam Kurtzman; the two have been together since 1993.
