New Photos from Supergirl 1×15 – “Solitude” – Fortress of Solitude and Laura Vandervoort as Indigo
CBS has has now released the full batch of photos from next week’s episode. The first batch show Kara and James travelling to the Fortress of Solitude to learn more about Indigo in hopes of defeating her. The second batch gives us a much better look at former Supergirl Laura Vandervoort’s character Indigo. The wig is…unfortunate, but the suit is very cool. As we saw in the promo, Indigo is a very physically intimidating character. No wonder Laura was so excited about the action sequence she gets to perform in this episode.
The character I’m playing, Indigo, is such a badass that I knew I’d have a lot of fun. She’s a living, strong-willed super-computer. I’ve been trying to wrap my head around how to play her, how she spoke and how she moved. I’m learning as I go along. It just unravelled quickly and I was on the set already filming. Once I stepped into her costume and how she looks, which is rather unique, I was able to slowly piece together who she was.
When I learned that they were offering me the role of Indigo, I looked her up immediately. I saw many different versions of what she looked like and descriptions of who she was, that went in depth so much that they talked about how she enjoys doing her laundry. There’s a lot of information out there that you can or can’t use. You have to sift through the important facts.
On “Smallville,” Kara was more powerful than Superman at the time because he was still figuring his powers out and she was trying to teach him to fly. A lot of my stunts were harness work, which isn’t too tasking. On “Bitten,” and equally on “Supergirl,” it’s more hand-to-hand combat and longer fight sequences. That’s actually more difficult than just being harnessed up and flying. But, I enjoy doing those things because I grew up doing martial arts. It breaks up the acting day’s work where it’s long and monotonous and also very grueling. It’s nice to mix it up with a little action.
