Episode 10×03 of Smallville features the return of Laura Vandervoort as Supergirl, a character we haven’t seen on the hit CW series for nearly two years. TV Guide has our first look at the actress in the episode (titled “Supergirl”):
“Kara returns in a very heroic way,” Vandervoort told TV Guide. “When I found out this could be my last episode, I thought it would be great to see a quick glimpse of her in the uniform before she takes off.”
“You really see her as Supergirl,” says exec producer Kelly Souders. “Not the whole outfit, but her wardrobe will have evolved even a little more than Clark’s. She’s less Kara and way more Supergirl.” Watch for Kara to don her new look for a photo shoot after she becomes a media darling following a heroic save that reveals her flying capabilities to the world. To protect her superhero identity, “You’ll see Kara in the [brunette] wig and glasses [as] a bit of an homage to her other identity from the comics, Linda Lee Danvers,” Laura says.
Smallville returns with its 10th, and final, season on Friday, September 24, 2010.
