Since one Kryptonian from Smallville just isn’t enough, we thought it would be great to bring Clark’s cousin Kara to Puyallup this Summer. Please welcome Supergirl, Laura Vandervoort to the Washington State Summer Con happening in Puyallup from June 21st through the 23rd. Laura has portrayed Kara Zor-El on the hit series Smallville.
Laura Vandervoort began her career in background work as a child on Canadian commercials and TV shows. This led her into the hands of Disney, where she starred in several now classic Halloween movies as well as several kid’s tv series. She is best known for her roles on the television shows “Smallville” as Supergirl, and “V,” and has been consistently working as an actress since she was thirteen years old.
Laura’s career includes many projects such as the series “Instant Star” which went for 4 seasons, and the feature, “The Lookout,” starring Joseph Gordon Lovitt and Jeff Daniels. She worked alongside Ray Liotta in the feature, “The Entitled” and many more. Laura then booked a series regular for ABC’s sci-fi series “V” and then booked feature films including a role in “This Means War” starring Reese Witherspoon and Chris Pine and “Ted” directed by Seth Macfarlane, starring Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis. Laura would soon after star in “Jigsaw,” a film in the series “Saw.” Laura was on the sci-fi-action series “Bitten” for Syfy.
