"It's been a while, but we can finally announce the grand total for our charity drive. This was a great experience and we at Legendary Women, Inc. loved working with the Sweet Forum and could never have gotten this far without support from Lana and Chloe fans alike! So without further adieu...We raised approximately 2,050 U.S. dollars between Sweet and Legendary Women, Inc. for The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, which blows away our last year's total by over FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS!..."
Wow! Congratulations to everyone involved in making this a big success!
Also, there is a nice write-up posted by 'The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation' website regarding Legendary Women & SWEET's experience working together for this common goal:
"...This year, the Sweet Clark and Lana Forum, which was the first group of Smallville fans to hold a drive for this cause, was generous enough to team up with Legendary Women, Inc. for a group event to raise over two thousand dollars for The Reeve Foundation. It's not a collection of all fans of the show, but both groups involved feel it's an important first step in helping bring Smallville fans together to continue supporting this foundation's work...Legendary Women, Inc. and Sweet have together gained much from this joint endeavor, more than just a fresh perspective on characters sometimes seen only one way before. Both groups also feel a growing sense of camaraderie. We came together because Sweet and Legendary Women, Inc. found this cause so important that it transcended occasional differences in opinion. We love and respect the women and characters we're honoring here, and we both were glad to be able to work together as a unit, eventually coming to understand that differences existing at the onset of the drive were not insurmountable. (Photo from Legendary Women, Inc.)...For that we are grateful and earnestly hope that The Reeve Foundation will "go forward" with this donation as it continues to serve so many..."

If we go back a little bit further the fan boy in me loved your role as Lana Lang ...that show ran for four seasons what sort of memories do you have from back then about that series?
"Very fond ones! You know its funny because that was my first show ever and that was during the writer's strike and it was hard for actors to get work...because writers...it just was a crazy time so I was really blessed to be working at that time. And...I had no idea this had such a huge following back then. If I did maybe I would have done things differently, but you know you just kind of do; you know, your thing. But, I have very fond memories, that was so much fun! I mean, again, when you talk about being on a show for so long, four years, and everybody is away from home it becomes such an amazing family. We had dinners every Friday after shooting and we would go to parties on Saturday and it was...it was...you know, you are talking late 80s [laughs] early 90s. It was fun! I mean, it was a great, great time! It was campy and hilarious and...but there...I was telling a fan the other day, I was saying you know, there's innocence in that, back then there's just an innocence that its now become about sarcasm in shows. I don't know...I look back on that time as really, really amazing and I don't know if I'll ever get that experience again. I hope to! I really do hope to because, you bond with all the directors and all the cast members... and the crew. I loved them! I just loved it. And even being in the humid, hot Florida [laughs] was, you know, it was fun too..."

Latest images added to our 'World of Lana Lang Gallery'!
A Kristin Kreuk interview from 'Starlog Movie Magic Series Presents Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events' [Fantasy Worlds #5] (March 2005) talking about her role in the mini-series "Earthsea" and expressing her thoughts on Lana's character in season 3 & 4 of 'Smallville'. The article also features some nice Lana images:
"Lana has been distracted, and isn't as interested in the simple life of 'Smallville' anymore," Kreuk continues, "She has bigger things running around in her head, She has been in Paris and dating Jason, and the only reason she came back is because she had to. She suddenly linked having this tattoo to 'Smallville', so she went back to figure out what her destiny is. And she's finding that it must be related to Clark in some way..." ~ Kristin Kreuk 'Starlog Movie Magic Series #5' (February 2005)

"In about a month, the broadcast networks will be making their final decisions about which pilots to pick up for the 2012-13 season.
The obligatory two shows with the same premise
We've previously noted that both ABC and The CW are developing takes on "Beauty and the Beast." The CW's is more or less a remake of the late-'80s CBS drama -- Kristin Kreuk and Jay Ryan star, and the show is set in present-day New York. ABC's version hews closer to the fairy tale and is set in a fictional kingdom (and sounds as if it were specifically designed as a companion to "Once Upon a Time").
The networks will announce their 2012-13 schedules at their upfront presentations the week of May 14."
