Tom Welling's 'Smallville' Cast Rallied for Him to Get a Driver, Just Like KJ Apa's Cast

The cast of Riverdale has been rallying behind KJ Apa after the actor got into a car accident due to a long workday that led to him falling asleep behind the wheel. This is something similar that happened on the set of Smallville over a decade ago.

In a podcast that was released only this month, Tom Welling and his co-star Michael Rosenbaum revealed how the cast rallied to get Tom a driver due to the long hours he was put through on the set of Smallville.

“All of us are driving to a location at 4:30 a.m. with one eye open and you’re in every scene. I think it got to a point where we all like signed a letter for you because we’re like ‘You’re going to kill Superman,’” Michael said.

Tom added, “Unbeknownst to me, because I was just told it was already done, but you all signed something, because we weren’t allowed to have drivers for some reason, but yeah, I was getting up at 4:30, driving an hour and a half, working an 18-hour day then driving back, sleeping five hours. And you guys were like, ‘Well, he’s gonna die. He’s gonna run into a tree and the show’s gonna be over.’ So you guys kind of gave up, you waived your rights to ‘If one had a driver, everybody had a driver.’ So, I got a driver and it was a big difference.”

WBTV has said all of the people working on Riverdale are allowed to call a taxi or have a driver take them home when they are working long hours.

    allowed to call a taxi to drive them home? First off when you are putting in all those hours, you really can’t make a good decision because you are so tired. Drivers should be available & waiting for the talent as soon as they are done. CW has been doing this for years..

    Apa was thankfully uninjured in the crash. As for the PA’s who worked 16-17 or more hours that day and had to also drive themselves home that night, no one ever gives a fuck. The only people not protected by unions and agents and managers. God save the pretty people who get paid more.
