Smallville: Live chat with Lucas Grabeel


Lucas Grabeel (Conner Kent) hosted a live video chat for his fans this morning, and answered a few questions about Smallville. I loved what he said about Tom.

Smallville was just last night, and I got to work with Tom Welling, who plays Clark Kent, which was pretty cool. And I have to say the first time I met him, I really thought he was Superman, because he acts just like him. I mean, on and off the set, he's just so proper and nice and a good-hearted guy. He just acts like a hero all the time. Tom's a lot of fun. After ten years of doing the show, he's definitely comfortable with everything on set, and so we had a lot of fun, a lot of laughs. [02:11]

As far as I know, that was my last episode [of Smallville]. They haven't told me any more about that. [11:12]

Yes, I like Erica Durance, she is awesome. She's really fun to work with. We had a crazy couple of scenes yesterday on the episode, which were a little difficult to film just because it's so intense or whatever, but it's awesome. She's a pro, so it was a lot of fun. [17:48]

Superboy spin-off! I know, c'mon, really? Totally! They should do it, right? Everyone lobby! Call your local CW representative and lobby for Lucas Grabeel to be Superboy for... ever! I'm just kidding. [29:07]

You can watch the entire chat at Ustream HERE. The quotes I transcribed are time-stamped above.

In other news, Serinda Swann (Zatanna) talked to Christina Radish for Collider about her new show, Breakout Kings, and gave Smallville a little shout-out:

Smallville was just a blast. What an amazing group of cast, crew, writers, directors, and everybody. It was just a pleasure to be on their set, anytime.

Thanks so much for the quotes! :)

It´s funny: on the one hand Tom is nothing like Clark, on the other hand he is. Tom you sure are my Superman! *sigh*

The way I look at it, Tom has all the character traits that Clark does (integrity, responsibility, compassion, humility, generosity, etc.), but his personality is more "fun." He's laid back, funny, and a little bit naughty. So he is both. ;)

It's one of my all-time favorites!

Awww.....he is such a sweetheart. He did a good job last night with some tough material. And I loved him in High School Musical. He's very talented. I keep thinking that he's super young though and then I remember that's like 26?? For some reason, I picture him being a baby. He has a young face. Thanks for this!

Lucas seems like such a nice, down-to-earth guy, and I think he's a gifted actor. I've been a fan since the first HSM (I remember how excited I was when he was cast in Reunion). That was five years ago, and he still looks like he's in high school. You're right, he is 26.

Thanks for bringing this over. I don't have the patience for sitting through too many of these types of things, so its great that you provide the highlights.

And the never ending compliments towards Tom for his behavior on the set makes me smile ear-to-ear.

I'm always happy to share the Tom quotes with my fellow fangirls (and boys). :) It was funny, I watched the video chat live, but totally forgot to take note of the time stamps when he talked about Smallville, so when the video was posted, I had to listen to the whole thing all over again to catch the quotes I wanted to transcribe. :) I didn't mind, though, he's a sweetheart.

I especially love hearing Lucas say these things about Tom right now, when others are posting anonymous, baseless slurs elsewhere. He inspires such admiration and affection from his colleagues, without exception.

That was so awesome. I still think you should frame the Tom Welling is Superman quote.

I had fun watching it. He showed a lot of poise, especially in the face of the crazy fangirls who flooded him with silly questions. :)

Aw, he's got such a cute little crush on Tom!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: March 9th, 2011 04:32 am (UTC) (Link)
I know! I think Tom must be especially welcoming to the younger actors on set, they all adore him.

Thanks so much for sharing the quote about Tom and Erica. Completely made my day to hear Tom compared to Superman in his real life. Lucas seems like a great guy.

Lucas is a true professional, and so down to earth. The video chat was quite charming.

It seems like everyone who works with Tom talks about having a lot of laughs. :) Smallville must be such a fun set.

What I love about that quote from Lucas is that it was both spontaneous and sincere. He really does see Tom that way. ♥

I searched for this interview forever and never found it. So thank you, yet again for posting this.

I was watching High School Musical for the first time last year and I kept looking at Lucas knowing I'd seen him before. Finally it dawned on me, "Lex! Little Lex!"

Lucas is an amazing actor and dancer. He was SO natural. So I love reading about his experience on Smallville. Yayyyyy.
