Chyler Leigh’s character on “Supergirl,” Alex Danvers, experienced a major change in the show’s second season: At age 28, she discovered she was gay. So a character with an already big following suddenly attracted a whole new crowd of fans. Leigh spoke with Variety about the power of the story, especially on a superhero TV show. She’s also been expanding her music work, thanks to husband Nathan West. They said, “This is what we’re thinking. What are your thoughts?” Having a queer character on the show, it’s a really big deal. And I knew the magnitude of this — there’s not a lot of representation out there. We wanted to bring great awareness and tell an authentic story. It’s honest, and shows that coming out is a struggle. Alex is a character who’s just figuring it out as a 28-year-old. When you watch her putting all the pieces of the puzzle together, that’s what people have responded to. Her journey, being terrified of the fact that she couldn’t even say the word “gay” or “lesbian” — it’s not the same story for everybody, but the hurt, the struggle, the joy, the confusion, the light-bulb moment … that’s what I think everybody is relating to. My 13-year-old son has watched every episode. It opened up a conversation that I might have waited longer to have. He said, “I don’t understand why they would do that with your character.” To say, “Everybody needs to be treated equally” was amazing…. I’ve never been this passionate about my work, mostly because of the impact it’s having.

the actress looked incredible
