A “Supergirl” television series is on the way courtesy of CBS. The Network is so excited by the prospect they’ve already given the show a series commitment. We’ve had character breakdowns, but no casting speculation…until now. According to The Wrap, The Vampire Diaries/The Originals star Claire Holt (Rebekah) is among several actresses testing for the role of Kara Zor-El/Supergirl. If chosen, I would support this decision. Having seen “The Vampire Diaries” and “The Originals”, I enjoy Claire Holt’s acting. She also has a good look for the character as well. I’m curious to know the names of some of the other actresses in contention for the role. The series is described as follows; “The one-hour drama project, which has received a series commitment from CBS, will follow the exploits of Kara Zor-El. Born on the planet Krypton, Kara Zor-El escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she’s been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin (also known as Superman). But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.” More to come as we have it….
