Sex-trafficking Smallville actress Allison Mack was spotted for the first time since her early prison release after helping recruit for the perverted NXIVM cult.

Mack, 40, best known for her role as Chloe Sullivan, a young Superman’s close friend on Smallville, pleaded guilty in 2019 to charges that she manipulated women into becoming sex slaves for NXIVM leader Keith Raniere – who is currently serving a 120-year sentence.

Mack was spotted out and about on Wednesday running errands with her mother at a Wells Fargo in Seal Beach, California.

In a white, long-sleeved t-shirt, black pants and booties, the disgraced German-born actress was seen withdrawing cash from a Wells Fargo ATM.

While on her way back to the car, Mack held her phone to her ear, apparently in conversation, and refused to comment on her time in prison or her plans now that she’s been released.

The scandal-hit actress-turned-cult leader wore her hair in a short, light brown style and opted for a natural look for her first week back in the free world.

She began serving a three-year sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California, in September 2021, and was released on Monday, according to federal prison records.

Mack spent less than two years at FCI Dublin, a low-security women’s prison perhaps most famous for holding actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman for their roles in a college admissions scandal. 

 In 2019, Mack pleaded guilty to racketeering and racketeering conspiracy and was sentenced in 2021. She served two years and was released today as part of the First Step Act – a Trump administration 2018 law that allows prisoners to earn good conduct credit, which shaves time off their sentences.

She avoided a longer prison term by cooperating with federal authorities in their case against Raniere, who was convicted on sex-trafficking charges.

Mack helped prosecutors present evidence that illustrated how Raniere created a secret society that included brainwashed women who were branded with his initials and forced to have sex with him.

In addition to Mack, members of the cult included one of the heiresses to the Seagram’s liquor fortune, Clare Bronfman, and India Oxenberg, the daughter of TV star Catherine Oxenberg of ‘Dynasty’.

Mack expressed ‘remorse and guilt’ for her years-long involvement with the cult, and made herself available to testify against Raniere at his New York trial.

She was a child actress and  model but landed her first acting gig on a TV show when she was 15 and in 2001 went on to receive her part on the CW’s hit Smallville.

The series ran from 2001 to 2011 and earned Mack two Teen Choice Awards and multiple TV award nominations. It was while Smallville was filming that Mack first attended a NXIVM meeting in 2007.

She would eventually move to New York City when Smallville finished airing in 2011. She began regularly attending NXIVM seminars, and would often travel to Albany where Raniere lived.

In 2012, she chose to move to Albany to be closer to NXIVM and Raniere, rather than pursue an application to the Yale School of Drama.
