We are almost 3 months away from the anticipated premiere of the DC Comics adaptation of Supergirl. And the Girl of Steel’s home network, CBS, seem also eager for the premiere. They have set up a site for the series, which includes a feature on “7 Things You Didn’t Know…” about star Melissa Benoist.
More than a costume
Supergirl star Melissa Benoist got emotional the first time she put on her show costume. “I feel like a different person almost,” she said. “It really is an alter ego, where I feel inspired, hopeful and empowered.”
She’s got more ink than you’d think
Melissa boasts three tattoos: a wolf on her wrist, a chic feather accompanied with the word “free” on her neck, and a bicycle on her foot.
Just like us
Melissa considered herself a wallflower in high school, where she spent most of her time in theater shows or just hanging by herself.
No stranger to CBS
Before Supergirl, Melissa appeared in plenty of TV series, including CBS shows Blue Bloods and The Good Wife.
Music to our ears
As expected, Melissa is a fan of powerful women, including accomplished female singer-songwriters. A few of her favorites? Regina Spektor, Ella Fitzgerald, Rosemary Clooney, and of course, the legendary Etta James.
While she rocks blonde hair in Supergirl, Melissa looks just as good with brown locks.
A Supergirl’s best friend
Melissa adores animals and constantly ‘grams photos of her sweet dog Farley. Snuggling her cute pup is just one way she unwinds after a long day on set.
The story also includes photos from Benoist’s Instagram page.
Supergirl premieres October 26 at 8:30/7:30 CDT on CBS.
