Melissa Benoist hides Supergirl alter ego in Vancouver

She can normally be seen fighting crime in red and blue.

But Melissa Benoist ditched the clinging bodysuit for something more low-key.

The 28-year-old actress was dressed as a geeky reporter while shooting scenes for season three of the hit CW drama in Vancouver on Thursday.

The stunner was dressed as her reporter character Kara Danvers as she was directed by famous filmmaker Kevin Smith.

The young ingenue was geeky chic in a plaid overcoat, light blue wool sweater, and a tight pair of denim leggings.

Her trademark golden tresses were pulled back in a conservative style as she rocked slender reading glasses. 

Melissa carried a notebook – as all crack investigators do – while she stood in the middle of a protest for the scene.

She took a kneeling position for one take and began to run in an action filled scene for the next.

On the show, Chris played Mon-El, the love interest of Supergirl/Kara Danvers. 

Their romance eventually moved from on-screen into real life. 

Prior to her relationship with Chris, Melissa was married to former Glee co-star, Blake Jenner. The two married in 2015 and Melissa filed for divorce in December of last year.

Season one of Supergirl debuted on CBS, but was moved to the CW for season two. 

Once the network move was made, so was the location. The show began filming in Vancouver after originally shooting in Los Angeles.
