Cynthia Ettinger is an American actress, known for her stage and television work, most notably her appearances on the TV series Carnivàle and in the unaired pilot of the TV series Smallville.

Early life[edit]

She is a graduate of Desert High School at Edwards Air Force Base, California.[citation needed]


Ettinger was originally cast as Martha Kent for Smallville, but during filming everyone realized that she was not right for the role, including Ettinger.[1] She turned to theater jobs, and when the opportunity for Carnivàle came up, she chose that project because of the theater-like experience.[2] She has starred in the play Rantoul and Die.

Personal life[edit]

From 1990 to 1993, she was married to American singer and television performer Wally Kurth.[citation needed]
