CBS’ “Supergirl” TV series has an additional cast on board. Emma Caufield signs a contract with the network to play the role of Cameron Chase in the action adventure TV series.
Comic Book Resources reports that Emma Caufield, who famously portray the role of Anya in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" is heading to CBS to work with Melissa Benoist. The news came out first with The Mary Sue, when CBS gives the online mag an exclusive scoop of the show.
Those who are not familiar with the DC Comics character, Cameron Chase first appeared in the Batman comic series, issue #550. The character later on got her own led comics titled “Chase,” which is written by Dan Curtis Johnson with J.H. Williams III as illustrator and Mick Gray. Cameron also appears in “Batwoman” #1.
The Mary Sue best described Cameron Chase as stern woman who is dedicated to her profession as an FBI agent. She vowed to dedicate her life to her job when her dad was violently murdered. She’s known for her “no holds barred” character in the bureau. “Chase’s weapons of choice are manipulation and manpower. With little sympathy, and plenty of suspicions, she pursues her targets with ruthless determination."
On a separate news about “Supergirl,” the TV series is being given positive feedback from its critics. One review comes from Screen Rant, stating that episode 2 “doesn’t just change the pace, but proves that the characters – like the showrunners – aren’t wasting any time.”
Obviously, the writers of the show are making it clear that “Supergirl” is nothing like a reinvention of “Superman.” Right from the start, the showrunners and writers clearly put the message across that this series has its own unique concept, although “the writers had rushed their starlet to the finish line a bit too quickly.”
Despite that hiccup in its narrative, which is too minor, the second episode “Stronger Together” has pulled it off and has delivered well.
