Actress Margot Kidder will return to her Superman roots by appearing in TV show Smallville.

Smallville, which stars Tom Welling as a young CLARK KENT struggling with the powers which will later make him SUPERMAN, will feature Kidder - who played Lois Lane in the films of the 1970s and 1980s - as an "emissary" to her old Superman co-star Christopher Reeve's DR SWANN character.

Kidder's character, BRIDGETTE CROSBY, will appear in the season opener and will even share scenes with Clark Kent's mother, played by Annette O'Toole. O'Toole played Clarke Kent's love interest LANA LANG in SUPERMAN 3.

The fourth season of Smallville will kick off on 22 September (04).
