Melissa Benoist got her break when she was cast as a female lead in the William McKinley High School storyline on Glee when most of the Fox dramedy’s original stars saw their characters either move to New York or leave the show.
Based on the characters from DC Comics, the project, from Warner Bros. TV and studio-based Berlanti Prods., centers on Kara Zor-El (Benoist). 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, Superman. But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.
Written by Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler, the project went through an extensive casting process, with several young actresses testing for the lead. Benoist had been consistently in the mix, first alongside Claire Holt and more recently considered along with Elizabeth Lail.
Benoist, repped by UTA, Anonymous Content and Frankfurt, Kurnit, Klein & Setz, has a supporting role in the feature Whiplash, which is nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture. She will next be seen in the film The Longest Ride, opposite Britt Robertson and Scott Eastwood.

Whether you’re an adult or youth, “villager” or professional, and whether you have ever or never before experienced poverty, family dysfunction, and/or separation from your biological family, if you have a heart which has not waxed cold, you will smile, cry, laugh and even holler out loud as you follow the childhood journey of author, Deon Price.
Deon, a former foster youth, takes you through the life maze of 6 year old “Little Deon” as he witnesses and experiences family addiction, violence, fear, and separation, pain, rejection, and displacement; followed by the pains of confusion, sadness, depression, apathy, and hopelessness, but most of all the enduring love for and by his biological family.
Get ready to be amazed by the stellar cast bringing "NOBILITY," an out-of-the--box new dramedy from Cowboy Errant Pictures set 700 years in the future, to life. The concept revolves around the C.A.S. Nobility, humanity's most powerful starship with a crew, that's, well, anything but noble.“
Nobility” has an incredible cast composed of sci-fi legends from Walter Koenig (“Star Trek: TOS”, “Babylon 5″) to Doug Jones ("Hellboy" series, "The Time Machine") and Adrienne Wilkinson (“Xena”, “Star Wars: Clone Wars”). This is in addition to an all-star cast including Cas Anvar (“Assassin’s Creed,” "Diana," “Castle”), James Kyson (“Heroes”), Emmy-winner Michael Reaves (“Batman,” “Star Trek,” “Star Wars”) and more.
Real people existing in a real world with consequences for their actions – that is what’s at the core of “Nobility”. Described as “Firefly” meets “The Office,” “Nobility” uses clever comedic scenarios -- as the best of science fiction-based films like “Back to the Future,” “Indiana Jones,” “Firefly,” “Buffy,” and “Doctor Who” have done -- as a means to open the door to an audience’s heart. They succeed on every level.

"RAISED IN HELL" by Author Deon Price
A non-fiction family dramedy about overcoming obstacles, family bond and survival. A true story of a family’s struggle to endure in a challenging time and an even tougher environment. Delivered from the perspective of the youngest child of nine with humor, hardship and professional precision.
Deon D. Price has provided a trusted and respected perspective for youth. A great story teller, he has mastered the ability to deliver a critical and current message to today’s youth culture. A great read! This book should be a blueprint for anyone committed to serving youth and families.
I’m impressed with Deon’s innovative approach and creative thinking for impacting young people. To say that Deon D. Price and his journey in “Raised in Hell” is inspiring does not do it justice. He provides a well-lit path from illness to wellness inside urban America.
He lifts me up and makes me and others go on doing what we do. Deon D. Price’s heartbreaking yet laugh out loud story is a model of resiliency for today’s youth and should be a must read for those giving their all to help improve the lives of young people in America.
