"To say it has been an honor portraying this iconic character would be a massive understatement," she wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of her in her iconic Supergirl costume. "Seeing the incredible impact the show has had on young girls around the world has always left me humbled and speechless." She added, "She's had that impact on me, too. She's taught me strength I didn't know I had, to find hope in the darkest of places, and that we are stronger when we're united. What she stands for pushes all of us to be better. She has changed my life for the better, and I'm forever grateful."
In addition to sharing her gratitude, Benoist also teased what fans can expect from Season 6's inevitable conclusion. According to the actor, the show is going to end in "helluva" fashion. She continued, "I'm so excited that we get to plan our conclusion to this amazing journey, and I cannot wait for you to see what we have in store. I promise we're going to make it one helluva final season. el mayarah."
