An actress best known for playing a young Superman's friend has pleaded not guilty to charges she helped recruit women into a cult-like organization.

Allison Mack was charged Friday sex trafficking after federal prosecutors said she worked as a slave "master" recruiting women to a group led by a man who sold himself as a self-improvement guru to the stars.

Mack entered her plea in federal court in Brooklyn. A bail hearing will be held Monday.

Mack starred in The CW network's "Smallville," a show about the early life of Superman that ended in 2011.

Prosecutors say she helped recruit sex slaves for leader Keith Raniere and his group called NXIVM (NEX'-ee-um).
