Alaina Huffman, who played Dinah Lance/Black Canary on Smallville, has spoken up about Mack's attempts to recruit her into NXIVM cult.
"As a young woman, 27, 28, on Smallville, Ally was a couple of years younger than me and here she was flourishing, very well put together, a really peppy and independent woman. She invited me a few times to some of these events and for whatever reason, I never made it, maybe because I was married and had kids and I might have had something else that grounded more than I needed that kind of grounding, but I can understand the appeal."
Huffman also revealed that Bonnie Piesse, who played Beru Lars in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, also tried to get her to attend a NXVIM meeting.
"We went out for dinner and she was like, 'Oh, you've got to come to this group,' I said, 'Oh yeah, I know it from Ally.'
Interestingly, when I look back on it, I had been invited to several meetings, and because I had two little kids at the time, I never really had the time and our schedules never really lined up, so I never ended up attending. Honestly there was always a little something off about it. It was just a feeling, and I was like, 'No, I'm good,' and I stayed away. I don't know if that's because I had my own village, I wasn't very susceptible or vulnerable. I had a great group of friends, at the time I was married, and I had my kids."
Allison Mack is currently awaiting sentencing.
