ComicBook.com has learned that The CW’s “Supergirl” is looking to cast an actor to play a transgender character for Season 4 of the TV series.
Reportedly the casting notice is for a character named “Nia Nal”, who is described as a transgender woman in her early 20s of open ethnicity. Nia is described as a “young Cat Grant type” who is “a confident, wunderkind of a fashionista. Once a political speechwriter, Nia is the newest addition to the CatCo investigative reporting team. With her she brings sparlking wit and biting humor but under that banter-y, chic facade, lays a soulful young woman who has much to offer the world.”
With Kara having stepped away from her role at CatCo Media in Season 3, it appears as though she may return to journalism in the fourth season of the series, or at least CatCo Media will have a bigger role in the story next season.
