Not only will Melissa Benoist get a new suit, she will also get a new job on Supergirl In an exclusive to Entertainment Weekly, Melissa Benoist will direct an episode in season 5. She tells EW it's something she has wanted to do.

“I’ve been wanting to direct since season 3, but couldn’t last year because of scheduling conflicts, so [star] David Harewood did it first. I just felt really drawn to it for a couple of seasons now, just because you know the show so well, and you get to know the character, and the world, and the tone of the show so well that you can’t help but envision certain scenes in a certain way. I want to play with that.”


She joins Harewood and The Flash's Danielle Panabaker as not just acting but also calling the shots.

The episode will be number 17 in the line-up, which won't air til sometime in the spring. But EW says Melissa has been readying herself for this.

So far, she has sat in on a concept meeting for the season 5 premiere while shadowing producing director Jesse Warn and plans on shadowing director Tawnia McKiernan, who helmed season 4’s “O Brother, Where Art Thou,” which introduced Jon Cryer as Lex Luthor.


Interesting to see Melissa will job shadow the director of the episode that turned season 4 around.

As for directing herself, Melissa said it would be...

“the one intimidating part because I don’t know how people do that,” she says. “But luckily, I’m surrounded by a bunch of people that are really supportive and we can divvy out responsibility. I don’t know how a brain can split like that.”

Abso-freaking-lutely! As Melissa Benoist (or Kara Danvers) she can wear the biggest, bestest big girl pants on the market, just not as Supergirl. ;)

She really must have some superhuman gene in her. To put in the hours she does already and then aspire to and doing the director work, which also involves a lot of additional prep work in terms of shadowing!

I am sure this will teach her a lot of stuff that will help her when she gets out of Supergirl and into other projects. May be she can direct a movie some day.

Very nice to know. I hope she succeeds and enjoys the process as much as David did.

Off the top of my head, Tom Cavanagh also directed the Flash. :)


Right you are.
