There are a lot of people who have a favorite TV show, and several of them would put Supergirl at the top of their list. But It's a lot more rare for a superfan to get to actually join the cast. Harley Quinn Smith is that lucky, though, guest-starring on tonight's episode, "Supergirl Lives," which is directed by her father, Kevin Smith. It's her favorite TV show, and she couldn't believe she was part of the process.
"When I found out, I didn't even really react, because I was like, this is fake. This can't be happening," Smith told Comicbook.com. "Then when I got there, I was just in complete shock because it is my number one favorite show. It's not just one of, it is my favorite show! So it was just surreal to be at the D.E.O. and just be there. We didn't even shoot there, but I just would go and hangout around the set and be like, I'm here at the D.E.O. and that is what's happening right now."
The experience was a great one for the young actor, currently excited to be months away from graduating high school and eager to turn acting into a fulltime career. Meeting her hero Melissa Benoist and the other actors and crew went well from the start.
"Everybody was so incredibly kind. All the cast and the crew was just so incredibly kind. Melissa was the most welcoming and just completely amazing human being and she took me under her wing," she said. "It was incredible to get to know them as friends, and not just as me freaking out that I'm on Supergirl, but to get to hangout with them and get to know them as regular people because they're all such amazing humans. Besides the fact that they're insanely talented, they're just also so kind and it was just so awesome to get to form relationships with everybody there. It was such an incredible experience."
While she couldn't talk too much about what her character Izzy does in the episode, she did tease that "at one point I get to be a little bit of a badass."
Ultimately, when she graduates high school later this spring, Harley would love to join the ranks of the CW on a regular basis. After she "goes to heaven" seeing herself on Supergirl, she wants the CW to know she's ready for more.
"I'm about to graduate high school, so I'm about to be really open for any shows that want to put me in them. But yeah, I guess I'm just really excited to be able to make work my number one priority, and in a few short months I will be a free woman. Just alert the CW, I am available! Sound the alarm. Six months is going to go by in a flash, so I am ready for the CW!"0comments
