Naturally, one of the two characters is closer to Benoist’s real-life personality, and she told us it’s certainly not the super-confident one. (Click on the media bar below to hear Melissa Benoist)

Melissa Benoist & Her Fans: They’re Super/Gleeky, Yeah!

Melissa Benoist’s singing skills were put to good use in the recent CW superhero crossover. It’s not surprising that they’ve had her sing on Supergirl, considering she spent two seasons on the hit series Glee. Each series has had an extremely passionate fan base, though Benoist told us there doesn’t seem to be a lot of overlap between the Gleeks and the diehard Supergirl fans. (Click on the media bar below to hear Melissa Benoist)

Melissa Benoist’s ‘Supergirl’ Outfit Suits Her Just Fine

During the Halloween season, superhero costumes are always a big hit. People seem to love dressing up as an empowering figure, and if you look closely, their body language can change when they’re wearing that suit or cape. Melissa Benoist, of course, wears her superhero outfit at work all the time — after all, she stars on The CW’s Supergirl — and she’s definitely noticed that her posture changes when she’s wearing the suit! In fact, she’s become very conscious of her Supergirl stance, and she can only do it when she’s in the costume! (Click on the media bar below to hear Melissa Benoist)

‘Supergirl’ Gets Social, And Melissa Benoist Loves It

The show’s handling of the topic has caused a big buzz on social media, and Supergirl star Melissa Benoist thinks the show will continue to drive discussion about social issues.  (Click on the media bar below to hear Melissa Benoist)
