Last week, Troy Mayor Harry Tutunjian got a break from his regular humdrum duties to entertain, at least for a little while, celebrity. Allison Mack of TV’s Smallville and Nicki Clyne of Battlestar Galactica were in Troy, scoping out the quaint downtown scene, visiting the shops and going out for dinner, and they popped in for a quick visit with the befuddled mayor.
Mack and Clyne have said that they were interested in starting a business, and curious about the community’s youth scene, said Jeff Buell, Troy’s director of public information.
Why Troy? Why the Capital Region?
Because, according to multiple sources, Clyne and Mack are students of Executive Success Programs, or ESP, which is the educational wing of NXIVM, and have been for at least a year. Mack’s co-star, Kristin Kreuk, has been connected to the organization for years.
