Supergirl Casts Arrow Alum As The Villainous Midnight For Season 5
With filming on Supergirl‘s fifth season underway, the news just keeps on coming in. For those keeping score, know that the Girl of Steel herself will finally sport a brand new costume, Meaghan Rath will play a female version of Brainiac-5, and the mysterious organization known as Leviathan have their sights set on National City. Yeah, there’s going to be a lot to talk about come this fall.
As it turns out, Jennifer Cheon Garcia will show up in the season premiere as Midnight, who Variety describes as being “the physical manifestation of darkness, Midnight is a murderous villain released from an otherwordly prison to enact revenge against the person who put her there.”
If this actress sounds at all familiar to you, she just might be. Though she may be more recognizable from her time spent on the Van Helsing TV show, she’s actually appeared in a handful of Arrow episodes as a cop. To be more specific, she’s been credited in several different ways such as “Uniformed Officer,” “Officer Jones,” “Uniform,” and even “Uni,” yet I assume they’re all the same bit character. Additionally, Jennifer has enjoyed other small roles on both The Flash and Lucifer, so she’s certainly no stranger to the DC TV family.
Even with those credits under her belt, it’s no problem for Garcia to play a more prominent character on Supergirl. After all, even The Flash‘s own Patrick Sabongui played a small-time criminal during Arrow‘s first season, so it’s not unheard of for actors to get callbacks for bigger roles down the line.
Supergirl returns with new episodes on Sunday, October 6th on The CW. Will you be tuning in for the premiere? Let us know in the usual place below!
