The CW Star of the Week: Annette O'Toole
Birth name: Annette Toole
Where you can catch her: On Smallville, Thursdays at 8/7c
Why we heart her: O'Toole's ferocious, tenacious and yet precious as Clark's mother. Her Martha is heroic by leading by example, which we know doesn't get so much attention in this world. But we notice!
Our favorite factoids about O'Toole: She's an original song Oscar nominee for writing "A Kiss at the End of the Rainbow" with her husband (and former Smallville-r), Michael McKean. You can hear that tune in the movie A Mighty Wind - which, by the way, is ridiculously hilarious! A must-see on DVD! Anyway... AO'T also played Lana Lang in Superman III. Maybe she shared some of her acting tips with Kristin Kreuk, the show's current LL?
Is AO'T your favorite Martha Kent? Why or why not? Do you think Martha trusts Lionel too much? Or are they Smallville's next hot new "it" couple? And wouldn't it be nice if Perry White returned somehow? We hope he does soon!
