Helen Slater to guest star on Smallville
It was announced a few weeks ago that Smallville was adding the character of Supergirl to its show and that Laura Vandervoort was cast in the role. So what role will Slater play? Spoilers after the jump!
Sci Fi Wire reveals that Helen Slater will play the aunt of the show's Supergirl. Does this mean that Slater will play Lara, Clark's birth mother? No more information about Slater's character is available at this time.
It is not the first time an actor from a movie or television series revolving around Superman guest stars on Smallville. Christopher Reeve and Margo Kidder have both appeared on the show and Lois & Clark's Dean Cain will make an appearance this season's fourth episode.
Helen Slater's appearance on Smallville should air at the end of October or early November on The CW.
