Did you check out the series premiere of ‘Supergirl’ last Monday? If so, you weren’t alone: it’s the highest-rated premiere of new TV shows this season! The star of the show, Melissa Benoist, dished on the power of the suit.
She said just putting the iconic suit on made her feel different.
It really changes me from the inside out. I’m usually such a horrible sloucher, but I stand differently. My shoulders are magically back. I feel strong, and I walk differently. It’s a cool feeling.”
Melissa certainly was able to portray that in ‘Supergirl.’ She did an amazing job! You really bought the idea of this young woman who finally decided to embrace her powers.
Melissa said she enjoys playing someone with superpowers.
Everything is fun. Whether it’s some kind of action sequence, like I’m throwing a lot of punches and kicks, or I’m flying on the green screen. There’s just something every day that I get to pause and be grateful for.”
Melissa, who is married to her former ‘Glee’ co-star Blake Jenner, has also developed an appreciation for downtime now that she’s so busy as the star of a TV show.
I have a pottery wheel at home. I read a lot of books and see a lot of movies. Work is so fast-paced, I like to kind of slow things down a bit.”
That makes sense: TV actors have to work some looong hours. Here’s a sneak peek at the villian on tonight’s episode of ‘Supergirl’:
