Smallville Finds Its Supergirl

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's ... Supergirl.

As previously reported, the cast of the CW's drama Smallville will expand next season to include the new character of Supergirl.

Cast in the role is Canadian actress Laura Vandervoort, best known for her role as Sadie Harrison on the N's Instant Star and guest roles on CSI and The Dresden Files.

Vandervoort will play Kara, Clark Kent's cousin, who also has similiar abilities to her relative, in addition to flight.

Vandervoort reports to work next week on Smallville, which returns for its seventh season this fall.
