NYCC 2021 – Melissa Benoist & Thomas Lennon: “Supergirl” Costars and Authors

During a virtual panel at NYCC, actors Melissa Benoist and Thomas Lennon reveal the inside scoop on all things “Supergirl” and their journey from costars to authors of new middle grade novels.

Benoist is publishing “The Powers: Haven’s Secret” with her sister Jessica Benoist on October 19 and Lennon will publish the third book in his Ronan Boyle series “Ronan Boyle Into the Strangeplace” in November.

“I don’t think I truly realized what I was signing up for, so my expectations…my mind was blown right form the start,” Benoist said. “It was one of the hardest, most challenging experiences of my life, and I think it will remain that for the rest of my life.”

“I hope that it always and forever…shows fans and young women in particular how to be true to yourself and not be afraid to speak up and to empower the people you love around you and really embrace community,” she said.
