On October 26, 2015 Warner Bros. and DC Comics aired the first ever episode of Supergirl. David Harewood joined as an original cast member taking on the role of Hank Henshaw – Special Agent of the DEO. It’s safe to say his role(s) evolved very quickly.
In a huge and historical moment for the Arrowverse and comic book fans worldwide, during the episode titled ‘Human for a Day’, it was revealed that Hank Henshaw was in fact the shape shifting alien J’onn J’onzz – also known as the Martian Manhunter. David made history and will forever be known as the first ever actor to bring the Martian Manhunter to life on screen.
David and all of the characters he’s played on Supergirl have cemented his role as a firm fan favourite each and every season.
In addition to his roles in front of the camera, David has just finished directing his third episode for Supergirl. The cast and crew are currently filming the very last season of the show in Vancouver.
