SUPERGIRL Casts Izabela Vidovic & Olivia Nikkanen As Young Kara & Alex For An Upcoming Flashback Episode

The CW has announced that Supergirl has recast the roles of young Alex & Kara for an upcoming flashback-heavy episode of the series. Izabela Vidovic & Olivia Nikkanen have been tapped for the roles.

With Malina Weissman, who played young Kara Danvers during the first two seasons of Supergirl, currently busy filming the next season of Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events, the CW has decided to recast the role for an upcoming flashback-heavy hour of the hit superhero series that will shine a spotlight on the relationship between the Danvers sisters.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Izabela Vidovic (The Fosters, Wonder) has been enlisted to play young Kara while TV Line reports that Olivia Nikkanen (The Americans) will play young Alex. The duo are set to make their series debut in episode six, which is titled "Midvale." 

The episode will follow present-day Kara (Melissa Benoist) and Alex (Chyler Leigh) as they embark on a road trip back to their childhood home, where they revisit a high school murder mystery that helped shape the foundation of their relationship. Benoist teases the adventure to come, "You’ll get to see, through the way they interact, how their relationship started when Kara first came to Earth, how it grew, how it became so close and why they’re so close nowadays.
