First Look: Smallville’s Erica Durance Suits Up as Wonder Woman on Harry’s Law by Natalie Abrams Dec. 29, 2011
Are you the type of actress who says, “I’ve spent all these years on Smallville and now I have to get away from that genre!”?
Durance: No. I just believe things come your way that are meant to come your way and you’ll know when you see it whether you want to do it or not. I think that most of us actors are put in a box of sorts. We’re labeled. You can do your best to step outside of that a little bit here and there and have some fun with it, but you also have to understand that and embrace it and enjoy it. Personally, I’m just grateful to work again.
Do you have any Smallville withdrawal?
Durance: There’s a certain grieving process to leaving a show and a group of people that were a family to you. It’s important to learn that’s all that life is, is just a set of transitions for you and so you move through it. But yeah, there were times when I was like, “Aww.” Not so much sad at times, but I’ll go on another set and it’ll just be slightly different. I’m transitioning. I’ve been saying that for months. I’m in transition.
Lasso of truth time: Best part of wearing the costume and the worst part of wearing the costume.
Durance: The best part is the corset, believe it or not, because it gives you a tiny little waist, making you sit up really straight. I would say the most uncomfortable part is tight, stretchy pants because, well, you know what you feel like when you’re wearing tight, stretchy pants. You just have to be careful everything is appropriate.
But would you have wanted the underwear version of the costume though?
Durance: [Laughs] I’m very grateful for the pants. I know that people were very excited about the underwear and seeing them. To be quite frank, I don’t know if I could’ve done the underwear justice at this point in time and it might have been more upsetting for people to see me in them than to not, so I think the pants are a safe bet for me.
I just love how she responds to every interview… it makes me admire her more. ^_^
