BIOGRAPHY:

Melissa Marie Benoist Jenner (/bɛˈnɔɪst/; born October 4, 1988) is an American actress and singer best known for her portrayal of the title character in the CBS series Supergirl.

She rose to prominence for her portrayal of Marley Rose on the fourth and fifth seasons of the Fox musical comedy-drama television series Glee, and has also appeared in a number of television series including Homeland, The Good Wife and Law & Order.

Benoist was born in Harris County, Texas, and was raised in Littleton, Colorado, the daughter of Jim and Julie Benoist. Benoist has two full sisters, Jessica and Kristina. From her father's re-marriage, she has five half-siblings: Tanner, Estella, Coco, Rocket and Tor. She graduated from Arapahoe High School in Centennial, Colorado in 2007, and from Marymount Manhattan College in New York City in 2011.

Benoist made her film debut in Tennessee in 2008.

In May 2012, she auditioned for Glee in New York at the Roundabout Theatre Company, singing a different song for each of her five auditions including: "Fidelity" by Regina Spektor, "King of Anything" by Sara Bareilles, a Colbie Caillat song, and several musical theater pieces. In July, she had two screen tests in California for series creator/writer, Ryan Murphy, the casting directors, and executive producers. As the show's executives had been looking for an actress who could play the part of Marley for some time, Benoist began work immediately.

In July 2013, Benoist was cast for the film Danny Collins. She will play the role of Jamie, a desk clerk at a hotel frequented by one of Jamie's all-time favorite rock stars.

In January 2015, it was reported that Benoist will be portraying the lead role of Kara Zor-El on the upcoming CBS fantasy adventure drama series, Supergirl.

Benoist married her former Glee co-star 'Blake Jenner' in March 2015.
