Supergirl meet … Supergirl. The Wrap reports that CBS’ Supergirl series has cast Laura Vandervoort for an upcoming role. The actress played Supergirl (Kara Zor-El) during the later seasons of the CW Superman drama series Smallville.
Vandervoort will reportedly play Indigo, “a strong-willed, living supercomputer” who turned against the Krypton population. This is not the first time a former Supergirl has appeared on the CBS series. Helen Slater, who played the character in the 1984 Supergirl film, appeared on the show as well.
Additionally, CBS has announced they’ve cast Jeff Branson as Master Jailer, the merciless jail guard of Fort Rozz.
The cast news comes at a busy time for Supergirl. Earlier today, we reported that there may also be an Arrow or The Flash crossover with the CBS show.
