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.

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

  5. Teresa says:

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