After the new trailer and photos from Supergirl’s third season, the CW has officially announced British Bollywood star, Amy Jackson as Imra Ardeen a.k.a. Saturn Girl in a major recurring role. We don’t know if we’ll be getting a Legion of Superheroes connection but we wouldn’t be surprised.It’s possible that her appearance may tie into the return of Mon-El. The network has released a brief character description on her backstory.
“Saturn Girl, aka Imra Ardeen, is a kind, smart, and strong-willed hero who uses her telekinetic ability to help those in need. She was born on Titan, one of Saturn’s moons, and arrives on Earth to help Supergirl battle one of her biggest threats.“

Jackson made her Bollywood debut in 2015 in the action/ comedy Singh Is Bliing and is also well-known as for starring in several Tamil-language films, but this will be first American project.
As Superman’s cousin, Kara Danvers (aka Supergirl) balances her work as a reporter for CatCo Worldwide Media with her work for the Department of Extra-Normal Operations (DEO), a super-secret government organization whose mission is to keep National City – and the Earth – safe from sinister threats. At the DEO, Kara works for J’onn J’onzz, the Martian Manhunter, and alongside her sister, Alex, and best friend, Winn Schott. Also in Kara’s life are James Olsen, a photo journalist who moonlights as Guardian, a masked vigilante, Lena Luthor, and Mon-El of Daxam, whose planet was ravaged by Krypton’s destruction. In season three, Kara and team will come up against a new threat in the form of DC Worldkiller, Reign.
