Smallville star Erica Durance assessed Allison Mack’s sex cult recruitment efforts.
For an overall of 10 seasons from 2001 to 2011, The CW’s Smallville aired 217 episodes. The series, which was a coming-of-age prequel checking out Clark Kent’s earlier years included crucial castmembers consisting of Tom Welling, Kristen Kreuk, Michael Rosenbaum, Allison Mack, and Erica Durance to name a few.
Recently, among the series’ primary cast members Allison Mack has actually remained in headings due to her participation with NXIVM, a sex cult that was impersonating a multilevel marketing business. The Smallville starlet was detained for sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy, and required labor in relation to this cult.
Many members of the Smallville cast have actually assessed the fallout of Allison Mack’s legal concerns, and now, Erica Durance has actually shared her experiences she had when dealing with Mack on the series.
In a look on her previous Smallville co-star Michael Rosenbaum’s Within You podcast, Erica Durance assessed Allison Mack’s efforts in hiring her to sign up with the NXIVM sex cult:
“I said the idea of sharing all of my personal secrets brings up a visceral reaction in me. She didn’t bring it up until the latter part of the seasons. We had an interesting relationship, me and Allison. I think that she felt like she wanted to like me. I think that she wanted people to see that she wanted to like me but I don’t think having me there was something that was great for her. Maybe it came off as her being threatened but I found there was too many little idiosyncrasies that would happen.
I would walk away and was like, ‘I thought we got along today.’ Then I would go home and be like, ‘Well, that was mean.’ Nobody would ever see it. There were all sorts of those little things that would go on…I think she liked being in that position of knowledge and wanting to recruit. I think she really believed in it but I didn’t really trust her motivation when it came to me.”
Erica Durance and Allison Mack didn’t get along throughout Smallville.
Throughout her discussion with Michael Rosenbaum, Erica Durance recalled at her working relationship with Allison Mack, which she felt wasn’t so fantastic. She credited having their characters clashing as part of why tried recruitment into NXIVM stopped working.
