Teri Hatcher talks 'Desperate Housewives' finale, 'Smallville' and Amy Adams as Lois Lane
Teri Hatcher has played Susan Mayer/Delfino for seven seasons on "Desperate Housewives" but she says what her character does in Sunday's episode, was the first time she had to think twice about what she was going to film.
"That's one of the only scenes we've ever shot on 'Housewives' where I was in the middle of shooting it and I thought, 'I don't think I want my daughter to see this,'" She told OnTheRedCarpet.com on Sunday at a celebrity yard sale she hosted to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
She added, "I actually became conscious of that. It's exciting and tantalizing and I think Susan is dealing with some survivor's guilt and I think that comes out in her obligations to Paul."The actress also dished some information on the upcoming finale for the show, which will finish up filming this week. "We're heading into a great finale," she said.
Hatcher remarked that she still gets a lot of fan support and recognition for her role on "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman." The actress played Lois Lane for four seasons on the show, which ran from 1993 to 1997. "What it shows you is that Superman has manifested in so many movies, in so many forms and there's an endless desire for it. It's a wonderful fantasy story," She said.
"I think anybody that gets a chance to tell that story in any medium should go for it," She added. "It's really charming and I'm so happy to be a part of it."
The actress guest-starred on an episode of "Smallville" this season as the mother of the show's Lois Lane, played by Erica Durance.
Many actors who have appeared in the "Superman" films and television series have taken cameo roles on the CW show, including Hatcher's former "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman" co-star Dean Cain.
"I was really excited to be on 'Smallville.' I'd never been on it," Hatcher said. Her character appeared in a taped message to the show's Lois Lane, whose mother had died when the character was a child. "They asked me sort of on a whim, they didn't think I would do it and I was like 'of course I'll do it!'"
During her appearance on "Smallville," Hatcher donned a wig similar to the hairstyle she sported when she played Lois Lane. "I loved getting that hairstyle back. Even for a day," she said.
Hatcher also chatted about the recent casting of Amy Adams in the upcoming reboot of the "Superman" franchise by "300" director Zach Synder. The film, which is being written and produced by "The Dark Knight" director Christopher Nolan, stars "The Tudors" actor Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman and Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as Ma and Pa Kent.
"She is a phenomenal actress, I mean really, right," Hatcher said about Adams when asked about her opinion of Adams taking over the role of Lois Lane. "And [Adams] has such a large range. I think she'll be amazing, I think she'll be perfect."
