SMALLVILLE Star Kristin Kreuk Opens Up About Not Returning as Lana Lang in Final Season — GeekTyrant

Kristin Kreuk had a wonderful run playing the character Lana Lang over the course of eight seasons of Smallville. But, she did not return for the ninth and final season, which is a decision that she ended up making.

Kreuk was asked to come back, but she opted not to do it for a variety of reasons. While speaking at the Superman Celebration event in Metropolis, Illinois this past weekend, Kreuk explained “I just wanted her to be off in imaginary land.

“I wanted her to keep living the life that she had gone off to live, and I didn’t want to bring her back into the world. I really struggled with all of the love triangle stuff and I just didn’t see how we’d come back and add another closure to the story that wasn’t about Clark and Lois.”

The actress went on to say: “I like that she got to have her independence and got to find the path forward for herself that was tied to what she believed in, her moral compass, her values.

“I like that she got to separate herself from these men. If the show had been a different show, would there have been a different ending? Maybe, yes. But I like that. Because her stories were so tied to these men, it was such a nice thing for her to honor herself.”

I think that she made the right decision not to come back for the final season of Smallville, it had to focus on Clark and Lois because they were the two that would ultimately end up together.

Kreuk also talked about how she takes issue with the suggestion Lois “replaced” Lana in Smallville, saying: “I didn’t think of it that way. I never did.”

She continued: ”I thought they were two different storylines, and I really struggle with the idea that one woman replaces another woman, and I struggle with the idea that these womens’ lives don’t continue on, and they aren’t full and beautiful lives.

“So, I don’t know that she was replaced by someone else; I think that her connection to Clark changes, and she builds her own future. That’s how I saw it, anyway.”

I love Kreuk’s outlook on her character. She offers a very different perspective on things than what the fans think and it’s kinda refreshing. What do you think about these comments she made?
