In a report from E! News, the publication claims Allison Mack, the Smallville star allegedly involved in the sex cult, NXVIM, asked the judge if she could continue working as an actress and on other opportunities while the case goes on. The small-screen star wants the court to change her bail condition so she can continue to work.
Allison wants to leave her parents home in Los Alamitos, California, where she’s currently on house arrest, for the sake of finding work, as well as attending religious events and school.
Previously, the Smallville alum pleaded not guilty to sex trafficking for her involvement in the supposed sex cult masquerading as a self-improvement group for women.
According to a number of different reports, members of the organization were branded by higher-ranking “officials” and also subjected to blackmail through nude photos and letters regarding their family and friends.
After the court released her on a $5 million bond, she was placed under GPS location-monitoring in her parent’s house. However, now, she’s looking to have the court change the stipulations of her bail, that way she can continue with her life.
Allison starred in Smallville for ten years, from 2001 until 2011, and since then, her career in Hollywood has been finite, only appearing in other shows like Wilfred, American Odyssey, as well as The Following, albeit in small roles.
The last time she was given a role was in 2015, however, she’s looking to star work once again. Needless to say, it’s doubtful Hollywood will accept her to the same degree as they may have done before.
The court documents stated the purpose was to permit Ms. Mack the ability to contribute to society as well as her own “self-betterment” while she awaits a possible conviction and then sentencing. As for the response of her former co-stars, Michael Rosenbaum, who played Lex Luthor, stated he had no idea she would be involved in such a thing.
