Annette O'Toole is an American film and television actress born in Houston, Texas on April 1st, 1952. Her television career began in 1967 when she played a character named Debbie in the episode of the same name of the series This Is the the Life. She also appeared on episodes of My Three Sons, Dan August, The Virginian and Gunsmoke.

Annette's film credits began in earnest during the 1980s when she played Elaine in the 1982 action/comedy 48 Hours. In 1983 she played her most famous role of the time, Lana Lang, in the superhero fantasy film Superman III.

In 1996, Annette received her first recurring television role. She played Lisa Bridges in the series Nash Bridges. She was credited in thirty-three episodes of the show, but actually only appeared in twenty-two episodes. From 2000 to 2001 she played her first main title role as Dorothy "Dottie" Thorson in the crime drama series The Huntress.

Immediately following the discontinuation of The Huntress, Annette O'Toole was cast in the CW Network superhero family drama series Smallville, where she played the role of Martha Kent. This is the second project that found Annette playing a role in the Superman mythos and she had the opportunity to play opposite some of her Superman III co-stars Christopher Reeve and Margot Kidder. Annette was a regular cast member on the series for the first six seasons, and returned to the show for a guest-starring spot in one episode from season nine, and two episodes from season ten. She was credited in 135 episodes of the show in total.
