Ahead of the series finale of Supergirl, Melissa Benoist reflects on her six year journey as the Girl of Steel and looks forward to what the future holds for her.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – Tomorrow has finally come for the Girl of Tomorrow, Melissa Benoist.
After six seasons, a network change, and multiple crossovers, Supergirl fans will finally say goodbye to Benoist’s on-screen alter-ego Kara Danvers when the sunny CW superhero drama’s two-part series finale airs in a couple weeks; however, the show’s star already said her goodybe to Kara Zor-El two months ago when she wrapped production on the series in Vancouver. Now, she’s back home in Los Angeles with a shorter haircut; preparing to release of her new children’s fantasy book Haven’s Secret (out now), which she co-wrote with her sister Jessica and Mariko Tamaki (Supergirl: Being Super); and developing projects under her overall deal with Warner Bros.
