Actress Cassidy Freman gave the Los Angeles Times an interview, where she said of her character, “I consider myself human, which is equally odd on ‘Smallville.’ It’s funny; Tess, because she’s not an actual character from the comics, doesn’t have a destiny like everyone on the show does. Clark has a destiny.Â Lex has a destiny.Â Every week I see the script and I’m surprised by what she does. Because it does seem so flip-floppy because it’s like: ‘Who is she? Why can’t we define her?’ What’s interesting is,Â instead of being ruled by destiny, she’s ruled by her own passion and her life experience, which I think is a really cool juxtaposition against the rest of the characters because she’s living in the now.Â She’s not living in the past. She’s not living in the what will be. She’s living in the now. She tries to make things happen because of how she feels. I think that’s a cool difference. I think that’s why she fits in so well.”
Next episode: fall 2009.
