Thumbs up to Roosevelt School of the Arts alum Sharon Leal for snagging a new role on the CW Network series “Supergirl.” She’s playing a Martian named M’gann. Bee columnist Rick Bentley says this is good news for J’onn J’onzz (David Harwood), who as the Martian Manhunter thought he was the last member of the Martian race. M’gann says a rival White Martian helped her escape the destruction. Great to know that Leal’s character is hiding secrets. We love that. That’s why when J’onn asks her to do the Martian ritual of sharing minds, she turns him down. Ohhhhh, man. Cannot wait to find those out.
