8. ERICA DURANCE AS LOIS LANE

Love interest: Clark Kent a.k.a. Superman
Erica Durance's Lois Lane was introduced to Kent (Tom Welling) through her cousin, Kent's best friend Chloe, while he was still a high school student on the hit TV show Smallville. Sure, it fucks up common knowledge about her classic character, but it does make for ratings-winning steamy fantasy scenes that added two more seasons to the show after Durance's introduction.
