March is over, which means so is SMALLVILLE WOMEN, BIG HEARTS’s fundraiser. The goal wasn’t reached, but it was a blast celebrating all of the female actors and characters on Smallville. The money raised for the GLOBAL FUND FOR WOMEN will still go to a worthy cause and hopefully Smallville fans will continue to support charitable organizations and strong female characters.
Ultimately, my hope is thatSmallville fans realize the value in working together. So many of the women on the show made mistakes in their past and it seems fair to demand of ourselves what we demand of them. That means admitting where we’ve fallen short in the past and trying to do better in the future.
In the spirit of looking to the future, not onlycan we continue supporting the Smallville ladies we love by purchasing Bryan Q. Miller’s SEASON 11 comic coming out April 13th (click here for details), we can also check out some of the projects the actresses are doing in the coming months. June is particularly eventful. Cassidy Freeman’s (Tess Mercer) Longmire will debut on A&E June 3rd, Erica Durance’s (Lois Lane) Saving Hope begins its NBC summer run on June 7th, and Allison Mack (Chloe Sullivan) will begin her recurring role on FX’s Wilfred on June 28th just a week after Erica Durance’s birthday.
Thanks to all!
Oh, and wish Annette O’Toole a “Happy Birthday” today (April 1st).
