From Supergirl to Werewolf

If you’ve seen the television series Smallville, then you already know it’s about a young Clark Kent’s journey to becoming the Man of Steel—Superman.

There are other characters who appear in it from the original comics—such as Lois Lane, Lex Luthor, Lana Lang, Jimmy Olsen, and Supergirl. Along with them, characters such as Chloe Sullivan and Lionel Luthor were created specifically for the show.

But this post isn’t about Smallville, though I wouldn’t mind writing about it. It’s actually about the actress who played Kara, a.k.a. Supergirl—Laura Vandervoort. She’s tall, gorgeous, strong, and blonde. Her career highlights were the television series Smallville (2001-2011) (of course) and V (2009-2011) (the remake of the mini-series of the same name), as well as the movies Into the Blue 2: The Reef (2009) and Damage (2009).

Do you want to know what’s next in her career? Well, she was cast in the television adaptation of Kelley Armstrong’s Bitten, the first book in the Women of the Otherworld. Laura Vandervoort will play the main character, Elena who is a werewolf.


Here’s the plotline of Bitten:

Elena Michaels seems like the typically strong and sexy modern woman, She lives with her architect boyfriend, writes for a popular newspaper, and works out at the gym. She’s also a werewolf.

Elena has done all she can to assimilate to the human world, but the man whose bite changed her existence forever, and his legacy, continue to haunt her. Thrown into a desperate war for survival that tests her allegiance to a secret clan of werewolves, Elena must recon with who, and what, she is in this passionate, page-turning novel that begins the Women of the Otherworld series. 

It sounds interesting, doesn’t it? Have you already read it? I haven’t. But now I’m more eager to. I’ll order it from the library, and after I read it, I’ll write a review!
