TVLine Items: Smallville Alum Lands Haven Arc, Horror Story: Asylum Premiere Date and More!
Smallville alum Laura Vandervoort has landed a Haven-ly gig, booking a double-episode arc on the Syfy series.
In the 12th and 13th episodes of Season 3 (premiering Friday, Sept. 21 at 10/9c), Vandervoort will play a highly intelligent and (duh) beautiful woman who has returned to Haven for the latest cycle of Trouble. Alas, her visit isn’t a peaceful one; rather, she is driven to the brink of madness by the loss of a loved one.
In addition to her run as Smallville‘s Kara/Supergirl, Vandervoort’s previous TV credits include ABC’s V reboot and a guest gig on White Collar this summer. She also has popped on the big screen in Ted and This Means War.
