Vampire Diaries actress Claire Holt appeared to be a frontrunner for the role, until three weeks ago when sources told THR that Holt is not expected to get the part.

According to a report by the UK tabloid, The Sun, British soap star Gemma Atkinson is up for the lead role in Supergirl. The Sun’s source, who is apparently someone close to Atkinson, said that, “Gemma is a huge fan of comic books so this is something she’d jump at. It will make her huge Stateside.”

Born on the planet Krypton, Kara Zor-El escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she’s been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin. But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.

Supergirl is set to debut this fall having already garnered a series commitment from CBS.
