Entertainment Weekly has published an exclusive interview with Erica Durance in which she discusses returning to play Lois Lane in the “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover, and teaming up again with Tom Welling.
“It’s a little bit of a look into their future and the different choices they’ve made to be together,” Durance tells EW. “It’s a full-circle moment that’s really nice.”
When approached to return to the role of Lois for the 5-part crossover, Durance, who also plays Supergirl’s Kryptonian mother Alura, was surprised…
“My first thought was like, ‘Really? How are you going to manage this?’” says Durance. “But the writers are just spectacular about how they can pull all the different shows together and all of these different characters, and they make sense of all the timelines. So I was at first very, very curious to see what it would be, and getting to actually go out and do it, I of course was very excited to go back and get to play Lois again.”
Durance also said that it was weird returning to the familiar Kent Farm location with Tom Welling.
“It was bizarre [because] it felt like we hadn’t missed a beat,” Durance says. “It was just easy. It was like coming back in and working with family. It was a little bit bizarre because we went back on somebody’s else show, but we’re in a set that we’re familiar with, the farm and all those things. So it was very, very cool.”
