Tom Welling opened up about how Allison Mack’s prison sentence affects the upcoming Smallville animated series.
One of the biggest shocks in the comic book world was when Allison Mack was sentenced to prison for her role in NXIVM’s sex trafficking scandal. Mack reportedly lured women in and recruited them for the cult’s leader, Keith Raniere. Mack appeared in the hit DC series Smallville as Clark Kent’s best friend Chloe Sullivan for the sow’s entire run.
The franchise is set to return with an animated series, which will see Tom Welling reprising his role as Clark Kent/Superman. Details on the upcoming show are slim, though it looks like most of the cast is set to reprise their roles. Allison Mack, of course, won’t be able to, as she’s currently in prison for the next little while.
Speaking at Vancouver’s Fan Expo, Tom Welling opened up about the upcoming Smallville sequel series and how it’s coming along. Though the star didn’t tease any new details, Welling did bring up how “It might be tough to get Allison” when discussing the cast members he would like to see return. Welling hasn’t previously made a statement on Allison Mack’s prison sentence.
You can see Tom Welling bring up his scored Smallville co-star at the 24:25 mark.
