Kristin Kreuk Reveals Her Strategy Behind Refusing Lana Lang Role For Smallville Final Season

The actress explains her decision to turn down an offer to return for the show’s finale and mentions a possible reunion with former castmates.

Kristin Kreuk played in ‘Smallville’ for eight seasons as Clark Kent’s first love Lana Lang. The actress had the chance to reprise her role in the show’s tenth and final season but turned the offer down. She explained why at the Superman Celebration event in Metropolis, Illinois, this past weekend:

“I just wanted her to be off in imaginary land. I wanted her to keep living the life that she had gone off to live, and I didn’t want to bring her back into the world. I really struggled with all of the love triangle stuff, and I just didn’t see how we’d come back and add another closure to the story that wasn’t about Clark and Lois.”

The Actress Is Satisfied With Lana’s Ending

Lana left the town in Season 7 to let Clark follow his destiny as superhero. She returned for a few episodes in Season 8 but had to stay away from him because of the Kryptonite in her system. This ended the two’s relationship for good. Kreuk commented on the story:

“I like that she got to have her independence and got to find the path forward for herself that was tied to what she believed in, her moral compass, her values. I like that she got to separate herself from these men. If the show had been a different show, would there have been a different ending? Maybe, yes. But I like that. Because her stories were so tied to these men, it was such a nice thing for her to honor herself.”

She’s Open To A Reunion

Michael Rosenbaum and Tom Welling are now working to revive ‘Smallville’ for an animated sequel. They have been planning the project for several years, and Kristin Kreuk is willing to join if it moves forward:

“We’ve talked about this a lot. I think we’re all open to it. I know that we’re not babies anymore. The boys have been working on this animated thing for a million years now. I don’t know what’s happening with that, but that has been the main idea, I think, moving forward.”

The animated show might take a while to arrive as Rosenbaum and Welling are waiting for the ‘right time’ to pitch it.
