Smallville: Erica Durance on Twitter


Erica Durance tweeted live during the east coast broadcast of Smallville tonight! She had some lovely things to say about Tom Welling:

Fun, awkward scene at the table! FYI actually choked on the potatoes, Tom helped me out there!

Just FYI Tom is much funnier than I am in real life!

He's a gentleman

He has absolutely no airs about him, totally grounded and lovely

He is one of the nicest people you could meet. It is a pleasure


Would you like to do more than act, like write or produce?
Right now loving the acting! But who wouldn't want to boss Tom around lol!

She also said this about the finale, which seems to suggest there will be no reveal:

Perfect cliffhanger and set-up for some fun with the triangle next year! Please watch

Some other interesting tidbits she shared:

Before we start I just wanted to let you know that I don't have any personal, Twitter, Facebook or myspace pages.

In response to a question about Lois kissing the Blur:
We all knew that this was all about the triangle between them and it only makes it more spicy

This scene with Annette was a thrill! Lois loves having a mother figure around! Total acceptance

I love being a part of something to legendary and possitive as the Superman Mythology


Your funniest episode to film this season?
So many were great! Loved Persuasion! How much fun to scare the crap out of Clark

Do you prefer playing sarcastic, funny Lois or romantic Lois?
I like to keep her sarcastic, and a little bit romance! But I personally enjoy the irony!

On a subconcsious level I often ask myself if she already does


Your favorite episode?
So many! Usually anything with a lot of Lois and Clark comedy! It's a riot

She is flawed! Makes mistakes just like everyone else, but strives to better herself


Your favorite episode? [asked again]
This year! Idol, Persuasion, and the Salvation!

In response to a compliment about her hair:
it's so nice to have it back to the natural colour! I'm not good with blonde

Do you have any other projects?
Right now taking a break, but looking to other possibilities

Your favorite Lois and Clark couple?
Reeves, Kidder

Would you like more Chlo-Lo scenes?
I love Chloe! She rocks

Allison Mack!, What a great job creating such a beloved character


Are you feisty and kick-ass like Lois in RL?
oh a little of that is in there! but I am fairly introverted and much more calm

Do you enjoy dressing up like Lois does in RL?
Not really! I enjoy occasional fun! I am a tomboy at heart!

I side with the subconscious knowledge about her man!!!


Your best experience with the show?
Too many to count! Just working with such amazing people. Lots of laughs! And the fans blow me away!! Thanks!

I couldn't always find the specific tweet to which she was responding, so a few of the above might sound a little cryptic.

I wouldn't dare be on Twitter while I watch Smallville, (it gets my undivided attention!) but I just caught up on all of Erica's tweets, and I love all the Tom-related ones!

I love that they joke around and that she says he's funny and a gentleman and everything...So he really was Superman and saved her from choking? :-)

Between her comments and AoT/MM's interviews that mention Tom, we get teeny tiny glimpses into what he's like (which I love), but it just makes me crave an actual interview with him even more!

At first I wasn't going to follow her in real time, because I was afraid of being spoiled, but I peeked at the beginning and she wasn't giving much away. Making this post gave me something to do while I waited for the episode to come on in my time zone. :) I'm like you, though, nothing intrudes on my Smallville viewing time!

It sounds like she and Tom have a great working relationship. Which is good, because they must spend A LOT of time together!

It's funny, I'm so used to hearing nothing from him or about him, that even a few words feel like a treasure! I'm hoping that he will at least do one interview like he did last year, at Comic-Con. Or maybe something to promote Hellcats, if it gets picked up.

Oh Joy, another freaking year of "the triangle" that was pretty lame for me this year.

Oh well, I should've known SV didn't have the balls to take a chance.

Ugh, I can see exactly where they're going with this, and I'm so disappointed.

Martha was right, either tell her the truth or let her go. And that goes for Clark AND the Blur.

I think Tweet Week was a fun idea. The actors were good sports to participate.

If you want to see a complete transcript with all of Erica's tweets, legendsinlove has one posted HERE.

Hmmm I'm remaining pretty optimistic about the 'Triangle' spoilers. In that there's a way it could go that doesn't make Clark look like a complete jerk
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: May 9th, 2010 09:55 am (UTC) (Link)
I don't think Clark's a jerk so much, I just think it's discouraging that he would choose to keep Lois in the dark for the sake of some fundamentally flawed idea that it will ensure her safety. It diminishes both of them, IMO, and makes whatever relationship they manage to have so much less than what it could be. Plus they've already started hinting at Clark feeling jealous of the Blur ("that's just not a side she's decided to share with Clark Kent"), and that drives me crazy.

The truth will set you free.

Erica was really sweet on Twitter. I loved her comments about Tom.

I feel your frustration about this idea that she has to be kept in the dark. I promised myself I wasn't going to vent about this...but alas...here we go.

I don't think Clark is a jerk either. (I don't think Clark could purposely act like a jerk if he tried.) Honestly, maybe I'm one of the few out there, but I'm intensely sympathetic to both of them in this whole break-up situation. I'm not taking a side. I understand where they are both coming from. I don't think Clark is acting like a jerk nor do I think Lois was out of line in ending the relationship.

Yes, of course, it is possible to chase after dreams and follow one’s ambition within the context of a healthy relationship with a partner who openly encourages you and supports you in that quest. The problem is that at the start of “Hostage”….the relationship wasn’t healthy and Clark was not being supportive at all. Lois admitted to him that she felt as though her life was falling apart and he told her that she was overreacting and then flat out told her to “give me a break.” How would I feel if the person who was supposed to love me told me to “give them a break” when I admitted that I felt lost?

Now, don’t get me wrong. I am intensely sympathetic to where Clark was coming from. He feels so torn right now between the two sides of his life. He was stressed about finding the Book of Rao and the impending war with Zod. I completely understand why he was a bit dismissive. But Lois doesn’t know that. I can't judge Lois from my vantage point. It’s completely unfair. We, the audience, have so much more information than Lois does. Lois was looking for a PARTNER in this episode and Clark was shutting her out. From Lois’ perspective, Clark just didn’t care what she was going through and wasn’t willing to let her in on whatever it is that was distracting him.

The scene was actually a mirror to the Clois scene in “Doomsday” last year. Last year, Lois was emotional and upset and desperate to find Chloe. She looked to Clark for emotional support and help and Clark shut her out. Now, we the audience knew that Clark was trying to protect himself and Lois. He was torn over the possibility that he would be killed in the fight with Doomsday and so he put up the “forcefield” and shut Lois out. Instead, he reached out to her as the Red Blue Blur and comforted her through that persona. But as Clark Kent…he shut her out. My heart broke for him during that scene because I knew WHY he was shutting her out. But Lois does not have the information that I have.

Martha’s speech to Lois about finding her purpose working with Jonathan to stop the flood mirrors this idea as well. Martha explained that she found her purpose when she worked side by side with Jonathan to help those families. The problem is….Clark is not allowing Lois to work side by side with him. He’s shutting her out from one whole side of his life. How can Lois see him as a supportive partner when he keeps shutting her out?

Clark tells his mother that he has fallen deeper in love with Lois talking to her as the Blur but that Lois keeps that side of herself closed off from him as Clark Kent. And I can understand that. I've long felt that the conversation that Lois shared with the Blur at the end of "Stiletto" was the turning point for Clark in his feelings for Lois. He saw a whole new side of her and it touched him. But Clark is doing the same thing.

Re: The truth will set you free.

I'm so sorry this sat here screened and unanswered for so long! I haven't had time to even look at my flist or comments in days because of work. I've just been making fly-by posts. I'm answering comments now while I wait for the finale to air in my time zone. :)

I'm intensely sympathetic to both of them in this whole break-up situation.

I can totally see both sides, and I'm not blaming anybody, but I still think it was OOC for Lois to break up with Clark after everything else we've seen over the past two seasons. Not that it's unbelievable, not at all, it just feels like the writers forced it a little to me. Lois has every right to be frustrated and angry, but I still think she would try harder to reconcile before bailing.

From Lois’ perspective, Clark just didn’t care what she was going through and wasn’t willing to let her in on whatever it is that was distracting him.

Absolutely. I'm sure some people even thought he was being patronizing.

And honestly, my biggest problem with Clark's stance is everything he went through with Lana. He learned this lesson already.

I thought it was ironic that Martha was telling Clark he had to be honest with Lois while she was hiding her identity as the Red Queen from Clark himself. :)

The truth will set you free (cont)

Clark has no problem telling Lois how much he believes in her and encouraging her as the Blur. But when is he going to do it as CLARK? Lois needs to hear that from CLARK in order to know how much he cares. The heart breaking part of all of this is that I believe that these two desperately need each other. (Yes, I believe that Clark needs Lois a lot more and for deeper reasons than he "needs" Chloe but that's a whole different story.)

I just feel as though at this point, this show needs to have the guts to let Clark tell her the truth. What is the alternative at this point? It's clear that he loves her. I'm just so afraid that the show is not going to allow him to be truthful. Despite the fact that "truth" is what they both desperately need at this point in time and "truth" is what makes the most sense in the narrative.

Oh my goodness...I'm so sorry for that long rant. I guess I'm just frustrated because I feel like so many fans are blaming Lois for this break-up and I just don't get it. I think they both are extremely sympathetic. My heart breaks for Clark. I want him to find happiness so badly. But I have to remember that Lois doesn't know all that I know and that it's unfair to judge her based on my vantage point.

Thanks for letting me share and thank you for your continued coverage of the show.

MJ

You're preaching to the choir. :) I couldn't agree more!
