The Transformation Of Melissa Benoist From Childhood To Supergirl

Many people will recognize Melissa Benoist at first sight as Supergirl, also known as Kara Danvers, from The CW’s superhero series “Supergirl.” With her role as the iconic DC hero, Benoist became the first woman to lead a superhero TV series since Lynda Carter in “Wonder Woman,” which ran from 1976 to 1979. It was certainly a long time coming. Now that “Supergirl” is finishing off its sixth and final season, Benoist is likely looking for her next major role or focus in life. She recently started her own production company and has a children’s book coming out called “Haven’s Secret,” which she co-wrote with her sister, Jessica Benoist, and Mariko Tamaki, but there are plenty of different directions she could go.

So how did Benoist get here? Born in 1988, Benoist’s parents got divorced when she was very young, and she spent most of her childhood and adolescence in the small town of Littleton, Colorado. In case her last name doesn’t make it clear, she has french heritage in her family, although her family doesn’t pronounce Benoist in the traditional french way (“The Late Late Show with James Corden”). From an early age, Benoist had an interest in singing and the stage, and clearly, it paid off.

Here’s the transformation of Benoist from childhood to “Supergirl,” and beyond.

Supergirl Showrunner Teases “Life Or Death” Stakes for Kara In Final Season

Supergirl returns for its sixth and final season next week on The CW and while Season 5 ended with Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer) appearing to have gained an advantage over the Girl of Steel and her allies, Luthor’s victory won’t last long. Kara Danvers/Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) will face off with the villain and according to series co-showrunner Jessica Queller, but saving the world will have life or death stakes for the heroine, something that will have a major impact on the season.

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Queller explained that Kara will have to face her mortality in a major way during the first part of Season 6 then put everything she’s learned into her final journey.

“She’s going to really sacrifice her life and put her life on the line to save her friends and humanity,” Queller said. “That challenge, she’s going to face her mortality in a way we’ve never done on the show. That’s really the focus of the first run of seven episodes. It’s life or death stakes for Kara, and it’s very introspective. So, all of the soul searching and taking stock of the past six years will happen in the beginning, and then she’ll put it all into play in the second half.”

From the sounds of the synopsis for the Season 6 premiere, “Rebirth”, Kara’s big sacrifice comes pretty early on. The synopsis reveals that once Leviathan is defeated, Supergirl turns her attention to Lex and stopping him will require her to sacrifice herself but it will also see Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath) work with the team to stop him as well and Queller explained that Lena will become a more integral member of the team in Season 6.

“Lena is going to become a more integral part of the Superfriends this season than ever before,” Queller said. “So I think that’s going to be really satisfying and have emotional resonance for her because she’s always kind of felt like an outsider, not just with Kara’s secret but with the whole group. Now she is going to be a full-on insider, so that will change the dynamic for Lena and the group.”

Supergirl Will Return In March When Superman & Lois Goes On A Brief Hiatus

Supergirl is returning way sooner than expected!

The first half of the CW superhero drama’s sixth and final season premieres Tuesday, March 30 at 9 p.m., taking the timeslot usually occupied by Superman & Lois. The recently-renewed freshman drama is going on a brief hiatus because of a COVID-19 related production interruption earlier in the season and will resume its season on Tuesday, May 18, meaning Supergirl won’t finish its run until later in the summer.

Like most shows, the Melissa Benoist-led drama’s previous season was cut short due the pandemic. In the unplanned season 5 finale — which was combination of the penultimate hour plus some of the footage they were able to shoot before the shutdown — Kara (Benoist) and Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath) buried the hatchet and teamed up to defeat both Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer) and Leviathan. Unfortunately, Lex, with the help of his mother Lillian (Brenda Strong), thwarted the Super Friends’ attempts to stop him.

Back From the Future -- Part Two

While there aren’t concrete details about the season 6 storyline, we do know that David Ramsey will reprise the role of Arrow‘s John Diggle and direct an episode co-written by series star Azie Tesfai — a first for any Arrowverse actor — and supervising producer J. Holtham. During an Instagram Live interview with EW in February, Tesfai opened up about joining the writers room for an episode and collaborating with Ramsey.

“It’s been great, I think, the nuance of not just representing the Black voice, but the Black female voice, and every Black experience is different,” she said. “To have David Ramsey directing the episode… that makes me really excited. Ramsey and I had dinner the other night and just talking about his perspective and experiences; they’re very different than mine. So, I think to have such a well-balanced [group] between me, J., who I’m writing the episode with, and David Ramsey, I think fans will feel really excited and hopefully seen and heard.” She added: “[Episode] 12, in my opinion, for Kelly, is the most epic episode of the season, so I’m excited to get to pen it.”

In terms of what’s in store for Kelly this season, Tesfai said: “The fans have been very vocal about what they want to see for Kelly — and I feel like they know what I’m talking about — and they, especially in the back half of the season, will get everything that they want, and it makes me very excited.”

Supergirl premieres Tuesday, March 30 at 9 p.m., following The Flash, on the CW.

Supergirl Poster Teases More Reign In Season 6

The CW teased that Supergirl’s Season 3 rival Reign, played by Odette Annabelle, may return for the show’s sixth and finale season in 2021.

The CW has teased that Supergirl‘s Season 3 rival may return when the show returns for its sixth and final season.

Rumors began to circulate about Reign’s return after the official Supergirl Twitter account shared an image on Christmas Day that featured Samantha Arias/Reign (Odette Anabelle) and Lena Luthor from Season 3. The shot was captioned, “Hopefully the forecast is more snow than Reign this year. Happy holidays!”

Introduced in Season 2 of Supergirl, Reign was a weapon of mass destruction that was bio-engineered in a Kryptonian lab and sent to Earth. Reign was raised as a human named Samantha “Sam” Arias, who was ignorant of her alien origins and had a daughter named Ruby before her dark impulses started to take over.

Melissa Benoist Reacts To Supergirl Ending With Season 6

Totally gutted about this!

Supergirl star Melissa Benoist has reacted to the news that the CW show’s season 6 will be its last, saying she’s been humbled by the experience. Benoist debuted as Danvers in 2015, when the show first aired on CBS. She remained the lead through the show’s move over to The CW and took a significant role in the Crisis on Infinite Earths storyline during the ambitious Arrowverse crossover. The show has been popular among Arrowverse fans, and as a result, the news of the cancellation is something of a surprise.

Benoist has also had a fairly extensive career outside of Supergirl, first making a name for herself as Marley Rose in Glee and starring in Whiplash and Patriots Day. Ironically, Benoist almost missed out on playing Supergirl by earlier auditioning for the part of Thea Queen on Arrow. However, the audition wasn’t successful, and she ended up claiming the titular role in the Arrowverse’s third show after Arrow and The Flash. Benoist’s portrayal of Danvers/Supergirl has been hailed for its combination of tenderness and fierce determination, with many holding her up as a role model for young girls.
