‘Supergirl’ Recasts Two Important Flashback Characters

You know that we love Supergirl and can’t wait for it’s return. We’re not ashamed of our passion for the show and our love for it.

Part of our love for Supergirl is the relationship between Kara and Alex Danvers. It’s also something that has been important in flashbacks. But flashbacks have been few and far in between, so we didn’t think we’d hear much about any casting for parts.

But when its Kara and Alex Danvers that get recast, that is news.

In the sixth episode of the season we’re going to get more of the Danvers sisters in their teenage years. The episode will be entitled Midvale and in it, “where they relive a murder mystery from high school that shaped their relationship as we know it.”

EW is reporting that a young Kara will be played by Izabela Vidovic. You may recognize her from The Fosters. 

Melissa Benoist talked to EW about the episode and said, “You’ll get to see, through the way they interact, how their relationship started when Kara first came to Earth, how it grew, how it became so close and why they’re so close nowadays.”

Young Alex will be played by  The Americans‘ Olivia Nikkanen.

Supergirl returns Monday, Oct. 9 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
