Allison Mack, 35, is reportedly second in command of a secret sex cult at the heart of self-help group NXIVM Mack is perhaps best known for playing Clark Kent's friend Chloe Sullivan on the long-running TV series Smallville
NXIVM, founded by Keith Raniere brands itself as a self-help group, but former members have said it's really a cult
Frank Parlato, a former spokesman for NXIVM, revealed on his blog that Mack has been running a secret sorority within the cult that brands women
The sorority, called DOS, has a master-slave hierarchy where Mack is only second to Raniere in terms of seniority, the blog states
She then presides over a small group of slaves, who in turn must recruit their own set of slaves or else face corporeal punishment
On her personal website, Mack says Raniere has been her mentor for many years
A spokesman for Mack said the actress is not speaking to the press currently
Earlier this week, former Dynasty star Catherine Oxenberg met with prosecutors in New York to detail her daughter's experience in the group
A former star of the hit series Smallville has been identified as a high-ranking member of a sex cult.
Last month, the New York Times broke the story about a secret sorority that brands women, puts them on starvation diets and beats them if they don't recruit enough 'slaves'. ADVERTISEMENT
The group, called DOS, is reportedly a secret society for the highest ranking female members within the self-help group NXIVM.
To outsiders, NXIVM is just a run-of-the-mill self-improvement group, offering classes that teach the answers to living a successful and fulfilling life.
But ex-members told the Times that NXIVM functions as a cult for people at the high levels of the group, who have dedicated themselves full-time to founder Keith Rainere and his teachings.
On Wednesday, a former spokesman for the group, Frank Parlato, told The Sun that an 'Emmy Award-winning actress' is a 'key recruiter' for DOS.
While The Sun did not name the actress, DailyMail.com can reveal that she is Allison Mack, who played Clark Kent's sidekick Chloe Sullivan on the long-running CW series Smallville.

Parlato goes into further detail about Mack's role in the group on his blog, The Frank Report, which has been publishing information on the group's inner-workings.
(Parlato says he was fired after one year when Raniere caught him investigating the company's financial records. He has been locked in a legal battle with both Raniere and two Bronfman heiresses who are members of the group, the later of whom claim he defrauded them).
The Frank Report claimed that Mack created DOS with the intention of turning it into a worldwide organization that would be a 'force for good and a female force against evil'. The former spokesman, Frank Parlato, says that Mack introduced corporeal punishment to the society, called DOS
