Bollywood star Amy Jackson is headed to National City as the actress has joined the cast of the hit DC comic series, Supergirl.
Jackson is set to appear in a recurring role as Imra Ardeen, aka Saturn Girl. Her character has been officially describe as a kind, smart, and strong-willed hero who uses her telekinetic ability to help those in need. She arrives on Earth in time to help Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) battle one of her greatest threats yet.
In the comics, Saturn Girl is a Titanian — a race of powerful mentalists — born on Titan (one of Saturn’s moons) and one of the founding members of the Legion of Super-Heroes.
Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers/Supergirl, David Harewood as Martian Manhunter, Mechad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers and Jeremy Jordan as Winn Schott, with appearances by Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant and Tyler Hoechlin as Superman. Here’s the official synopsis for the third season:
Ridding National City of Queen Rhea and her Daxamite army was a major win for Supergirl, but one that came at a significant cost, as Kara was forced to sacrifice her budding relationship with Mon-El. When season three returns with all-new supercharged adventures this fall on The CW, Kara and team will come up against a new threat in the form of DC Worldkiller, Reign.
Supergirl Season 3 premieres on Monday, October 9 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of Supergirl as we learn it.
