Personal Quote:

[on on-screen female superheroes] I don't really understand why people haven't always been ready for this. I think there are so many really successful franchises right now like The Hunger Games (2012), and I was a huge Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997) fan. I wish there were more of a pattern and more of a consistency to there being really strong female-driven stories. See more »

Trivia:

Was the very first of a thousand actors to audition for the title role of Supergirl (2015), just as Stephen Amell for Arrow (2012) and Grant Gustin for The Flash (2014), all produced by Greg Berlanti. See more »
