I'll never forget reading the pilot for Glee (2009) and being like, 'Ugh, this is ridiculous'. And then it took over the world! I have terrible taste, apparently. If I read something and I think it's amazing, it will fail.

So I think although her life is a positive life, the world that she then enters when she becomes Supergirl can be pretty dark and creepy. But not so creepy that kids can't watch it. It's a family-friendly... Yeah, a family-friendly creepiness!

[on Melissa Benoist] She is so talented and so smart and so funny and so kind and so down to earth and I just cannot say enough good things about her. I really, really love her. And I'm excited for little girls and young women to look up to her because she is a true role model.
