Would Superman approve of James Olsen flirting with his cousin?
Mehcad Brooks on Being Dubbed 'Sexy' Jimmy Olsen:
Calista Flockhart on being the boss:
Memories were the order of the day: Many of those moments shared, whether on-screen, behind the scenes or off-set, humanized a cast that at the time was thought of as superhuman.
Top of mind for Kidder, who played Lois Lane, and O'Halloran, who played Kryptonian thug Non, was the flying. Specifically, how uncomfortable and seemingly dangerous it felt.
"It was painful. Those harnesses would make your pelvic area so sore," said Kidder. "And they had you in these costumes and suspended in the air. ... It was very difficult to just use the bathroom."
"I remember that, Margot," said O'Halloran. "I remember we were suspended up in the air 70 feet with nothing but concrete below us, and Richard was like 'Oh. No.' Next thing, we had some mats down there. We also had these metal bars that held us, and we were assured they wouldn't break. So I broke one and the guy said, 'Well, that's no good.'"
Not all breaks were bad.
"We broke the mold with technology with 'Superman.' That's why it's still as good today as it was back [in 1978]," said O'Halloran.
So excited. This is so different from anything I've done. And I love that Greg Berlanti, who I've known forever, since I worked with him on Eli Stone, thought of me for this. When he called me and offered me this job, first he pitched me Alura and I was like, "That sounds so nice and sweet. I can see why you thought of me." And then when he was describing Astra, I was like, "That is really cool. I've never done anything like this!" It's fun not only to do something new but also be seen in a different light.
Will we get flashbacks to the sisters, and see you acting opposite yourself?
Yes - which is the craziest and coolest thing to shoot ever. It's so insane. I got to see a little bit of it and it looks amazing. Basically, when we shoot it, it's a person standing off camera reading the other lines, and I act into the air. I'm not looking at anyone, which is awkward and weird. But I'm actually proud of myself, it doesn't look like I'm acting into the air!
How would you describe the dynamic between Astra and Kara?
Certainly, in Episode 2, we see that Astra had been locked away on Fort Rozz for a long time. She's had a lot of time to think, to become embittered, and to get really strong. I think that she is single-minded in her focus of what she has been sent to Earth to do, and she's not going to allow anyone to get in her way of doing that - not even her niece, not even her family. I also think she's got a lot of anger towards Alura, and [Kara] is Alura's daughter, so [avenging her] is sort of the next best thing.

The more this prequel story progresses the more it just devolves.
I'm now at the point where I think they don't even know how this story will end - it's that bad.
I didn't like the comments about Jonathan Kent mainly because the writing and even Clark go against everything he stood for. I understand he has to do so to investigate Hordr especially as Condesa and Lois have proven untrustworthy.
