SMALLVILLE Alum Laura Vandervoort Expresses Disappointment With How Supergirl's Story Ended In The Series

After playing Supergirl for a lengthy stint in Smallville, actress Laura Vandervoort has shared her disappointment with how the Girl of Steel's exit from the hit series was handled during season 10!

Before the Arrowverse was birthed into existence, Smallville was the go-to DC TV show for fans. Running for 10 seasons, Clark Kent's transformation into Superman was a slow burn, and one that saw his cousin, Supergirl, beat him to becoming a superhero the world could turn to when villains attacked.

During a New York Comic-Con panel this weekend (via CBR), actress Laura Vandervoort looked back at her stint as Kara and expressed some disappointment with how her story reached its end.

"It's hard for me to remember every episode and what her arc was," the actress reflected. "I have said publicly before that I wish Kara was in more of the finale, at the wedding...she didn't really have closure. She just sort of flew off and we never saw her again. It would have been nice for myself personally and I think for the character to have goodbyes. I didn't have any proper goodbyes."

"And, you know, I think they could have explored more of her personal storyline," Vandervoort continued. "She was always --obviously, as she should be, it's Smallville-- involved with Clark's story, but we never really got to know her except when she had amnesia. That was an opportunity to explore who she was outside of that character because she was a blank slate."

"But otherwise, you know, it's the story of Clark Kent and Lex Luthor and I like how they peppered her in. It just would have been nice to see more about her personally."

Vandervoort was a regular in Smallville season seven as "Kara Kent" before being sidelined in season eight and nine ahead of a couple of brief appearances in the show's tenth and final season. More Supergirl in the series would have been welcomed, but it wasn't meant to be, and Melissa Benoist would later be cast as a new version of the Girl of Steel for a solo series on The CW.
