Laura Vandervoort HavenSmallville 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.

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.

  • I would’ve had AHS premiere closer to or on Halloween. Did wonders for Walking Dead (and to an extent Once Upon a Time)

    • AHA premiered before Halloween last year and then had a Halloween themed two parter. I wouldn’t be surprised if they did something similar this season.

  • Yay for Jill Wagner’s return to Wipeout! Hope it’s for good, since Vanessa Lachey was boring.
