Hi there - yes, I will post the audio today.
Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum on the set of the season five episode Tomb.
Always reblog my Pretties!
From this weekend’s convention: As Allison signed the photo, she said: “There are a lot of photos of me gazing adoringly at Tom Welling. He’s a wonderful man.”
I went to Allison’s ComiCon panel yesterday - very nice informal style Q & A, with both fans & Allison chill and relaxed! I audio-taped the panel and can post if people are interested. Here are a few quotes I transcribed:
On directing episodes of Smallville:
"Tom directed a lot and he was a great director so I asked him a lot of questions."
Advice to other aspiring directors.
"Don’t use dickhead momentum! Sometimes you get stuck in your own opinion and forget you don’t know everything."
On John Glover
"He the best villain but he’s one of my besties so I can’t take him seriously being a bad guy!"
"My favourite actor to work with…I think, John Glover. He became my mentor in a lot of ways."
Michael, Justin and Tom’s sense of humour
"Michael was sort of notorious - I don’t know if you guys have ever seen him at a convention or anything like that? - he’s so much fun. He’s so much fun. I love him. And he was ridiculous and would do ridiculous things on a regular basis."
When Michael left the show, Justin kinda slipped in nicely…he’s got a great sense of humour. Different kind of sense of humour than Michael but super super funny. They were the two jokesters.
Tom was very funny but Tom was very focused. He had to be. He was in every single scene so he kept things pretty consistent. Between Michael and Justin, the set was always exciting.”
Fan asks: did you ever imagine Chloe’s storyline going in a different direction?
"Every season, I was hoping I wouldn’t be killed. Sam Jones and I were always like "You kept your eyes open when they pushed you to the ground, right?" "They can’t kill you if you keep your eyes open!" "I kept my eyes open!" "Okay, we’re back next season!"
"There was talk of me being Lois Lane at some point and sort of spinning into that, then that didn’t happen. You know, there was talk of a lot of different things: me becoming more of the villain. I kinda danced with the Luthors for a little while, there was talk of that kinda going further. I like where I ended up; I’m super-proud of that character."
Fan asks why Kristin left the show:
"Lana Lang was a beautiful character but she wasn’t necessarily as complex as Kristin herself is. There were things she wanted to pursue that were beyond that character."
On being starstruck:
Allison talks about being excited to meet Susan Sarandon on a red carpet, then adds: “But you know, I made a fool of myself in front of Tom Welling at least once a week so it may just be part of my personality.”
A recent audition
"I auditioned for another show today that’s a sci-fi show, about a girl who has super-power and does all kind of wacky stuff so I wanted to send them some clips from SV: "See, I can do it. I’ve done it before!"
