Vandervoort starred as Kara Zor-El, AKA Supergirl, in 23 episodes of Smallville from 2007 until 2011. However, in 2020, she explained that she wished that her character had a different ending to the one she was given in the show.

"I have said publicly before that I wish Kara was in more of the finale, at the wedding... she didn't really have closure," Vandervoort said.

"She just sort of flew off and we never saw her again. It would have been nice for myself personally and I think for the character to have goodbyes. I didn't have any proper goodbyes."
