Laura Vandervoort Cast As Supergirl On 'Smallville'

Breaking news, 'Smallville' fans: Supergirl is coming, and Canadian actress Laura Vandervoort (photosLaura Vandervoort photos) just got the call that she has been cast to play the part.

She will start shooting with the cast including Tom Welling, Michael Rosenbaum and Allison Mack next week in Vancouver.

"She's a combination of beauty, intelligence, a certain warmth, and great attitude," Smallville co-creator Al Gough tells 'People' magazine. "We've wanted a character to shake things up. She may be Clark Kent's cousin, but that doesn't mean she's going to be the obedient one!"

Since mid-May, when DC Comics approved of bringing Supergirl to Smallville, creators have seen hundreds of actresses for the part until they met the 22-year-old Toronto-girl.

Supergirl will be introduced to viewers as Kara, Clark's cousin, who was born on Krypton and has all of Clark's powers including the ability to fly, which Clark does not have yet. Kara will also have a strong rebellious streak which puts her at odds with Clark, and into Lex's radar.
