“Bunnies, bunnies, it must be bunnies!”
Super Geek alert! Emma Caulfield, best known for her portrayal of Anya, the vengeance demon turned quirky human on Buffy The Vampire Slayer, has just signed on to play Cameron Chase, on CBS’s Supergirl.
More on this below.
Caulfield played Anya for 5 seasons on Buffy, and was a fan favorite to the very end – spoiler alert! – with her heroic death. She’s had recurring roles on Gigantic and Life, Unexpected, but this is her first role back in the superhero/supernatural genre (she guested on one episode of Once Upon A Time as The Blind Witch).
In the comics, Cameron Chase eventually joins the DEO, and develops her own ability. Let’s see where Supergirl takes our Chase.
After her father’s violent murder, Cameron Chase decided to dedicate her life to law enforcement. Now a stern, no holds barred FBI agent, Chase’s weapons of choice are manipulation and manpower. With little sympathy, and plenty of suspicions, she pursues her targets with ruthless determination.
What do you think? Are you as excited as I am about the casting?
Supergirl airs Monday nights at 8pm ET on CBS.
SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC Comics character Kara Zor-El, Superman’s (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton with her parents’ help at the same time as the infant Kal-El. Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin in order to keep her identity a secret. Years later at 24, Kara lives in National City assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant. She works alongside her friend and IT technician Winn Schott and famous photographer James Olsen, who Grant just hired away from the Daily Planet to serve as her new art director. However, Kara’s days of keeping her talents a secret are over when Hank Henshaw, head of a super-secret agency where her sister also works, enlists her to help them protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats. Though Kara will need to find a way to manage her newfound empowerment with her very human relationships, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime.
