Gemma Atkinson As Supergirl?
I talked about how the Supergirl show was one of the significant Kara stories (if not *the* story) of 2014. Let's face it, putting on a live action show is going to garner new interest and concentration on a character. Look at what has happened to Green Arrow and Flash.
With the new year, the time is ripe for casting rumors and the those fires were stoked when the David Rapoport Casting company posted that 'She's coming soon ...'
With Claire Holt rumored and then un-rumored, it is no surprise that we heard another rumor for who would be playing the Girl of Steel.
Across the pond, in the Sun, Gemma Atkinson was named as being up for the role:
Now I must lead a sheltered life because I had never heard of Atkinson and so went to google search.
There are plenty of cheesecake pics of Atkinson out there for those interested!
If she was linked to a Power Girl movie or show I would say the casting is perfect. But had I known of Atkinson, I don't know if I would have thought of her playing Supergirl. Maybe she could be up for Alexandra Danvers, the older sister?
Still ... I am hoping for Molly Quinn as Kara.
