Atkinson Up For CBS’s “Supergirl” Series

Former “Hollyoaks” star and “Devil’s Pass” actress Gemma Atkinson is the latest name rumored to be slipping on the spandex for CBS’ upcoming TV series take on “Supergirl”.

British tabloid The Sun reported the news and says Atkinson apparently auditioned for the show recently and is “waiting to hear whether she has been cast” in the role of 24-year-old Kara Zor-El.

Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash”) is producing the series which sports two female leads, the other being Kara’s secret government agent foster sister Alex.

Claire Holt (“The Vampire Diaries”) was previously rumored for the role, though her name was quickly dismissed due to her commitments to both “The Originals” and “Aquarius”.
