Mack’s former Smallville costar Kristin Kreuk previously opened up about her experience in Nxivm, which the actress joined when she was 23 because she thought it was a “self-help/personal growth course” that helped her handle her “shyness.”

“The accusations that I was in the ‘inner circle’ or recruited women as ‘sex slaves’ are blatantly false,” Kreuk posted to Twitter in March. “During my time, I never experienced any illegal or nefarious activity … I am deeply disturbed and embarrassed to have been associated with NXIVM. I hope that the investigation leads to justice for all those affected.”
