‘PLAY­ING SU­PER­GIRL WAS CHAL­LENG­ING AND TIR­ING’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Amer­i­can ac­tor Melissa Benoist (above) says es­say­ing the role of a su­per­girl in Amer­i­can TV series Su­per­girl was not only chal­leng­ing but tir­ing as well. The show nar­rates the story of Su­per­girl, who is the bi­o­log­i­cal cousin to Su­per­man and one of the last sur­viv­ing Kryp­to­ni­ans.

So how ex­haust­ing is the role? “It’s ex­tremely phys­i­cal, chal­leng­ing and tir­ing, but that’s a good thing. I think shes got to be re­ally tough and strong to show girls, and ev­ery­one else, that you can over­come the things that you’re afraid of,” said Benoist.

As per the sto­ry­line, Kara Jor-El (played by Benoist), now Kara Dan­vers, is sent to Earth to pro­tect her cousin, Kal-El (played by Clark Kent). The show will go on air In­dia from next week.

The ac­tor says the wire­work for the fly­ing scenes is also very hard. “The wire­work is re­ally dif­fi­cult, but it’s fun when you get it right. Watch­ing the re­sults is ex­hil­a­rat­ing. It’s a re­ally cool feel­ing to see them, es­pe­cially know­ing the en­ergy that I had to ex­ert to cre­ate those fly­ing scenes. The way they look is re­ally re­ward­ing,” said Benoist. Talk­ing about her role, she added: “I knew this role was go­ing to be a chal­lenge and a lot of re­spon­si­bil­ity, but I love a good chal­lenge.”
