https://youtu.be/yg-qlEzmP7o Supergirl is the biggest role of Benoist's career to date, and the one that is definitively catapulting her star into the mainstream. However, before becoming the Woman of Steel she's already appeared in quite a few high-profile shows and movies. As mentioned, there was her part in Glee, which ran throughout the 4th and 5th seasons. She was also the love interest for Miles Teller in the incredible Whiplash, which was released earlier this year (or last year depending on which country you're in). Her first film role was in Tennessee, produced by Lee Daniels, while she also appeared in the Al Pacino movie Danny Collins. Further TV credits includes episodes of Blue Bloods, The Good Wife, and Homeland. Then there's that video above, which sees Benoist star in what may now be a slightly embarrassing advert of tampons. Do you ever wish you could make some things disappear, Melissa?
NCTJ-qualified journalist. Most definitely not a racing driver. Drink too much tea; eat too much peanut butter; watch too much TV. Sadly only the latter paying off so far.
A mix of wise-old man in a young man's body with a child-like wonder about him and a great otherworldly sensibility.
