Supergirl is the latest superhero TV series to be added to the huge library of HOOQ, Asia’s largest video-on-demand service. The show is about Kara Zor-El, the cousin of Superman, as she tries to get used to a new public persona while dealing with her very real human relationships, realizing her full superhero potential and discovering how she can help the citizens of National City.
“It’s funny because in my everyday life, I have always been such a pacifist, “says Melissa Benoit who plays Supergirl.“The butt kicking is new to me. That’s a new muscle I’m flexing, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say I liked it.” She also has rigorous physical training, but she loves that she can be a great role model not just for girls but anyone how fearlessness can push one overcome the odds.
Also starring in the hit TV series is Calista Flockhart who plays Cat Grant, the CEO of CatCo World Media where Supergirl works as her assistant. Flockhart has expressed her excitement in the past to work on a show that “embraces… and celebrates Girl Power.” Not that she is any stranger to shows that celebrate strong female roles as Flockhart first gained television super-stardom through the quintessential workplace comedy Ally McBeal, wherein she played the titular character.
