‘Supergirl’ Casts ‘Van Helsing’s Jennifer Cheon Garcia as Season 5 Premiere Villain
Jennifer Cheon Garcia will guest star as Midnight, Variety reported. The character is “the physical manifestation of darkness” and “a murderous villain released from an otherworldly prison to enact revenge against the person who put her there.”
Gonzalo will be playing Andrea Rojas (a.k.a. Acrata), “a polished businesswoman and heir to a Central American tech empire” who “is now making a hostile advance into the world of media.” She is described as “unapologetic and unafraid to make waves.” She also “holds a mystical secret.”
Nair is playing William Dey, described as a “hardened reporter” who is “a cynic and a sellout who looks down on Kara’s earnest idealism” on the surface. He’s “not interested in making friends” and “just wants to get the story — but his ties to the criminal underworld could prove problematic.”
The new season will also see Kara in a new supersuit, as she trades in the skirt for pants.
