THE CAST

TOM WELLING as CLARK KENT

The teenage version of the Man of Steel may not have tights or a cape, but he does have a knack for saving people and a desire to do what's right. Clark is just trying to have a normal life, while dealing with his developing super powers, his love for sweetheart Lana Lang, and his tumultuous friendship with Lex Luthor. With the passing of his father, Jonathan Kent, Clark now finds himself in the role of man of the house, having to look after the farm while trying to discover his Kryptonian destiny. Other acting credits for Tom include guest spots on Undeclared and Judging Amy, and the movie Cheaper By The Dozen with Steve Martin.

KRISTIN KREUK as LANA LANG

Lana Lang is the apple of Clark's eye. Though the two have tried to date, things were complicated by Clark's reluctance to tell her the truth about himself. Lana's parents were killed in the meteor shower which brought Clark to earth, which only added to his feelings of guilt. Lana finally learned the truth about Clark in the show's sixth season, bringing the two closer together at long last... though knowing the secret also put her in greater danger. She was attacked by Brainiac and rendered catatonic in season seven. Upon emerging from her coma, Lana chose to leave Smallville. Other acting credits for Kristin include the Made-For-TV movie Snow White, and the TV series Edgemont.

MICHAEL ROSENBAUM as LEX LUTHOR

Lex's friendship with Clark Kent began the day Lex accidentally hit Clark with his porsche and drove off a bridge, then Clark saved his life by pulling him out of the sinking car. Ever since then, Lex had suspected there was something unique about his friend Clark Kent, and Clark's refusal to share his secrets led to Lex investigating the Kents behind Clark's back. Lex has a dark side that he tries to suppress, which stems from his father's ruthless manipulation. Other acting credits for Michael include the TV series Zoe, Duncan, Jack, and Jane, and the movies Poolhall Junkies and Sorority Boys. He is no stranger to DC superheroes, as he also provided the voice of The Flash on Cartoon Network's Justice League and Justice League Unlimited.

ALLISON MACK as CHLOE SULLIVAN

Chloe has worked her way up from top reporter of the Smallville Torch, her high school newspaper, to working at the prestigious Daily Planet in Metropolis. She is usually the one to get to the bottom of any mystery that Clark may be trying to solve, using her various connections and sources to uncover the truth about the strange happenings in Smallville. She has feelings for Clark, but these feelings constantly go unreturned. Once she learned the secret of Clark's super powers, the two formed a stronger bond, with Chloe's loyal friendship serving as a strong anchor for Clark. Allison Mack's other works include a role on the TV series Hiller and Diller, a guest spot on 7th Heaven, and the movies Camp Nowhere and Honey We Shrunk Ourselves.

ERICA DURANCE as LOIS LANE

Chloe's cousin, and the future woman of Clark's dreams. Lois came to Smallville in season four, looking for answers about her cousin's apparent death.

Lois first appeared in Crusade, then made several appearances throughout the fourth season. She has since become a series regular. Erica's other acting credits include the movie House of the Dead, though she is credited there as Erica Parker.

JOHN GLOVER as LIONEL LUTHOR

Lex's father is a cold, ruthless businessman who does whatever it takes to get what he wants. He considers Smallville to be a "test" for Lex, to see if he has what it takes to succeed in the business world. After Lex and Chloe discovered that Lionel murdered his own parents, the two joined forces and gathered enough evidence to send Lionel to jail. Even in prison, Lionel remained a very dangerous man, as he still had many resources on the outside. In later seasons, it was revealed that Lionel had known Clark's secret for a long time, and was part of a secret society known as Veritas that had been preparing for Kal-El's arrival from Krypton. Much like Michael Rosenbaum, Mr. Glover is also no stranger to the superhero universe. He provided the voice of the Riddler in Batman: The Animated Series, and played Dr. Jason Woodrue in the movie Batman & Robin.

AARON ASHMORE as JIMMY OLSEN

Cub photographer for the Daily Planet, Jimmy has an on-again, off-again relationship with Chloe Sullivan.

Clark's father was a hard working farmer who was always looking out for his son. He had a lot of respect for Clark, but was often worried that the boy would accidentally reveal his powers.

In the third season, Jonathan struck a deal with Jor-El, Clark's Kryptonian father, in order to bring Clark back from Metropolis. As a result of this deal, Jonathan's health deteriorated. In the fifth season episode "Reckoning", Jonathan suffered a heart attack and died. Mr. Schneider is most famous for his role as Bo Duke on The Dukes of Hazzard.

ANNETTE O'TOOLE as MARTHA KENT

Martha is also a source of wisdom for Clark, and she tries to help steer him in the right direction. She often found herself having to play peacekeeper between Jonathan and Clark when their egos would clash, as both men couldbe rather stubborn. She is the type of person who wants to help whenever she can, and that is certainly an influence on the future Superman. At the end of season six, Martha left Smallville to move to Washington DC as a Kansas state senator. Ms. O'Toole, ironically, played Lana Lang in the movie Superman III.
