April 29, 2011: More From Justin Hartley on Directing "Smallville"

Justin Hartley E! Online also spoke with Justin Hartley about his directorial debut on tonight's episode of "Smallville".

    Was it difficult being behind the camera and in front of the camera at the same time?

    Difficult, but I found a sweet spot. I talked to my assistant director Sandra, and I was like, 'Sandra, here's what I want to do. When I'm in front of the camera I really need someone else to call 'action' and 'cut' because I can't be in the scene.' Thinking about when I should end the scene at the same time...it's impossible.

    Did you have any favorite scenes while directing?

    There was a scene between Lois and Clark at the very end, and I really liked it. It wasn't the easiest scene we shot. It was really long, and it was really dramatic. There was a lot going on. I had to put Erica Durance in an uncomfortable spot. I really enjoyed working with her and giving her these tiny little nuggets; she was like a piece of putty. It was like whatever I said to her, she could do, and that was amazing to me. She had all this trust in me without holding back, and I think she's going to be extremely happy when she sees it. She's terrific in that last scene. She's really good.
