The April 16 issue of TV Guide magazine features an interview with "Progeny" guest star Lynda Carter where she talks about playing Chloe’s mother. The article also includes some quotes from Smallville executive producer Alfred Gough.
Here are some highlights:
- "Carter will be playing Moira Sullivan, the mysterious mother of Chloe (Allison Mack), best friend and confidante to young Clark Kent (Tom Welling)," TV Guide says.
- The article makes mention of the revelation a few seasons ago that Moira was in a mental insitution. "But obviously it was a much bigger secret than that," Al Gough said, revealing that Moira is meteor infected and has the power to mentally control other so-called "Meteor freaks."
- Lynda Carter reveals that Moira isn’t a typical heroine. "The fact that this character was formerly psychotic, that she was in a catatonic state, there’s a wonderful character arc there," she said. "Moria is a bit of a soap opera in one person: love, loss, magic meteorites."
"Progeny" airs on The CW April 19. The new TV Guide should now be hitting newsstands.
