One to watch; Teri Hatcher

Teri Hatcher thinks she’s landed a role that could catapult her into stardom, or at least bring her into consideration as a serious actress. As Lois Lane in “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman,” the 29-year-old former mathematics major from Sunnyvale, Calif., gets to show her abilities at comedy and drama.

This Lane is intelligent and witty, but she also demonstrates her femininity an d sensuality. “Lois is a role where she’s never the same,” says Hatcher. ” One day, she’s hard, the next day, mushy.”

This may be Hatcher’s biggest role to date, but the nine-year industry veteran has paid her dues. She got her start in the business playing a dancer on “The Love Boat” series. But after that, she went through some dry periods, working briefly as a waitress while awaiting a break.

But Hatcher’s lucked turned. She has appeared in several feature films, in the role of a self-absorbed starlet in “The Big Picture,” as Sylvester Stallone’s sister in “Tango and Cash” and playing opposite big stars in “Soap Dish” and “Straight Talk.”

Hatcher read a few scenes from the pilot script in her audition for the part of Lane, but she wasn’t paired with Cain until late in the audition process. But when they came together, there were fireworks. “We had great chemistry from the first read,” says Hatcher.

They get along. Cain, for example, recently presented Hatcher with a bicycle as a gift, for no apparent reason. “We’re a family here. All the pieces of the puzzle have fallen into place so easily,” she says. “I feel lucky.”
