Tom Welling's life story
Christopher Reeves, Henry Cavill, Dean Cain, and Tom Welling. What do these names have in common?
Well, all these men are hot, rugged and have made the quintessential comic book hero their own. Welling played the man of steel to perfection in the movie spin-off, Smallville. Named after the rural community where boy wonder grew up, the show was a hit among audiences around the world, running for 10 seasons from 2001 to 2011, and earning Welling a wealth of award nominations. He starred alongside the beautiful Kristin Kreuk who played Lana Lang, Clark Kent’s childhood love interest.
