Clair Holt – known for her role as Rebekah on CW’s The Vampire Diares and The Originals – is one of numerous actresses in contention to play the revered Supergirl in the upcoming CW production.
Greg Berlanti, who already has two hit shows running on the network, is set to produce the show, with a date scheduled for the fall next year. Berlanti has initially locked a 13-episode order, with hopes of locking a further back 9 for a full season. This will obviously depend on how well the show fares. Furthermore, there have been recent discussions regarding Supergirl taking place in the same Universe as Berlanti’s Arrow and The Flash.
Holt has appeared in a string of shows including Pretty Little Liars and H2O: Just Add Water and currently filming for a guest spot on Aquarius. The last time Supergirl was portrayed on the small screen was when Laura Vandervoot played the part on Smallville
