"Yes, Clark Kent saved people, which was very Superman-like, but for the bulk of the show's run, the way that Tom Welling's Clark interacted with the world at large was largely tethered to his romantic relationship, or lack thereof, with Kristin Kreuk's Lana Lang. Over eight and a half seasons, Clark's feelings for her were complicated by: a necklace with a small piece of kryptonite, a sense of guilt that her parents died in the meteor shower that accompanied his arrival as a kid, along with the dread that Lana will see him as inhuman, and continually, the feeling that Lana knowing about his abilities would endanger her life. These complications reached their first real crescendo in the hundred episode of Smallville, Reckoning, when Clark takes Lana to the Fortress of Solitude and discovers that, after a little bit of shock, Lana embraces who he is. This sets off Lex Luthor who has just lost to Jonathan Kent in a senatorial election and who drunkenly drives after Lana in an attempt to know Clark's secret. Lana dies, and Clark pleads with his birth father, Jor-El, to save her life - the time-travelling consequence of which is that, while Clark doesn't share his secret with Lana and she lives, Jonathan dies in her stead..."
Reading this brought back some great memories...suddenly feeling very nostalgic.

I barely make out the words 'Beauty and the Beast' on the right hand side...would really love to know what was said. If anyone has the complete article (translated) and would like to share, let me know!
If she didn't already know it well, Kreuk is currently spending a lot of time getting to know Toronto: it's the home of the CW drama "Beauty and the Beast," in which 30-year-old Kreuk plays leading lady Catherine Chandler. After spending most of her career portraying Lana Lang, Clark Kent's love interest on "Smallville" from 2001 to 2011, Kreuk guest starred in four episodes of NBC's "Chuck" in 2010. She also appeared in the 2010 made-for-TV movie "Ben-Hur," the historical epic of Jewish prince Judah Ben-Hur.
"Man of Steel" in theaters tomorrow June 14th...or later tonight ;)

Australia's ibtimes reporting Kristin Kreuk as one of the latest popular fan casting suggestions for the role of Anastasia Steele in the "Fifty Shades of Grey" film adaptation alongside Ian Somerhalder.
Ian Somerhalder & Kristin Kreuk [Smallville Episode 'Delete']
"Casting speculation for "Fifty Shades of Grey" continues. For one, fans are having a hell of a great time naming countless Hollywood stars set to play the lead roles. As of late, leading the polls is "Vampire Diaries" star, Ian Somerhalder, as Christian Grey plus a new face set to star opposite him as Anastasia Steele...If Ian had been cast as Christian Grey, who among Hollywood's hottest could have been cast as his Anastasia Steele?...the latest is Kristin Kreuk. The "Beauty & the Beast" television star is definitely a household name all thanks to her TV series. The brunette beauty is now eyed for the role of Anastasia Steele opposite Ian Somerhalder.
A fan video of the said pairing starring in a video for "Fifty Shades of Grey" has already made its' rounds on the web. For one, the chemistry is quite believable making anyone believe Ian and Kristin could just pull it off. Still, official casting for the film lies in the hands of Universal Studios and Focus Features. All fans can do for now is imagine all the possibilities. Hopefully, Ian Somerhalder and Kristin Kreuk get the lead roles."

Wow, it's pretty cool Kristin being considered for such a highly anticipated role...and alongside Ian Somerhalder no less. It so happens Ian and Kristin have worked together on 'Smallville'!
Ian Somerhalder on working with Kristin Kreuk:
"Kristin is adorable. It's frightening how gorgeous she is. I mean flawlessly beautiful. She doesn't even know it. That's what's so cute. She's not like the usual girls you meet in L.A." ~ Ian Somerhalder (2004)
Sweet! It's such a nice compliment but, Kristin Kreuk is already very busy portraying the lovely Catherine Chandler who like Anastasia Steele is living a love filled with 'gray'...."Fifty shades of Vincent Keller" Gray ;)
Special thanks to 'MichelleWelling' & @BeautyBeastBATB for the news!
