I see…sex people?

The Sixth Sense actress Samia Shoaib claims that Smallville star Allison Mack tried to recruit her into a sex cult! In the latest bizarre revelation about Mack's alleged involvement in a twisted group called NXIVM, Shoaib has spoken out in an interview to The New York Post's Page Six.

Beautiful Pakistani-born actress Shoaib, 47, has contended that Mack—who was arrested for alleged sex trafficking on Friday --once sent her frantic emails to join the secretive organization that allegedly branded women as "slaves."

After they met at an audition for an NBC pilot in New York in 2013, Mack supposedly emailed Shoaib that March, "Is there anything you have read that you can send to me? I would love to get into your brain a bit?!"

Shoaib thought the fellow actress was just being friendly, and said, "I wish I could tell you alarm bells went off, but they really didn’t. She was a very sweet girl."

The pair then met twice, at a restaurant and another time at Shoaib’s Upper West Side apartment in New York City.

According to Shoaib, Mack, now 35, looked "fragile and gaunt" with dark circles under her eyes.

She told Page Six, "She was definitely physically suffering. There’s no question she was sleep deprived."

In one email Mack sent Shoaib after they had dinner, the Smallville actress wrote, "Thank you for last night! I had a lovely time with you and your friend. You are both delicious women."

Their conversations shifted from feminism to a NXIVM-affiliated woman’s group called JNess, which Mack urged Shoaib to join.

Shoaib said that Mack gave "vague" descriptions of the group, allegedly telling her, "It’s a bunch of women. We go on a retreat upstate, and we share our experiences and support each other."

Mack put Shoaib on the JNess email list and invited her to gatherings and events, such as a Broadway show and dinner at the Gershwin Theater in 2014, according to emails Shoaib showed with Page Six.

But Shoaib believes Mack lost interest in allegedly recruiting her when she found out how old she was.

As readers know, NXIVM is headquartered in upstate Albany, New York. Last month FBI agents found its leader Keith Raniere in a luxury Mexican villa, where he was reportedly hiding out following a New York Times expose about allegations he mistreated and sexually assaulted his female followers.

A number of actresses are tied to the cult. Dynasty actress Catherine Oxenberg has said her daughter, India, 26, is a part of it. The women are allegedly branded with Raniere’s initials on their bodies.

On Friday, April 20, the U.S. Attorney’s office arrested Mack

for "sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy" on behalf of cult group NXIVM.

Mack pleaded not guilty, with her lawyer entering the plea on her behalf.

She was "ordered detained by the judge," and there will reportedly be another hearing on Monday, April 23.
