After the show, Melissa was surprised by a visit from her former Supergirl co-star Lynda Carter.

“She is her own kind of Supergirl,” she shared about Carole. “She’s a normal person, and that’s how she saw herself, but she isn’t—specifically in this time in her life that we portray. Because she is a creative genius.”

Just last week, Melissa was seen out at the United Airlines Presents: #StarsInTheAlley annual event.
