Melissa Benoist A.K.A. The Star Of ‘Supergirl’ Once Did A VERY Nude Scene In The First Season Of Showtime’s ‘Homeland’
Showtime’s Homeland is appointment television in my household. I know a lot of people love to complain about the show going downhill since the first two seasons, but IMO it’s only gotten better since writing off Damian Lewis’s character. The current and last season of Carrie, Saul, and Quinn have been fire.
Last night, almost 13 million viewers tuned in to watch Supergirl, CBS’s new collaboration with DC Comics. It stars Melissa Benoist as Supergirl a.k.a. the cousin of Superman who is good at bad guy kicking ass, but not so great at the whole dating-in-your-20s thing. It was the second most watched television show last night behind Big Bang Theory. Here’s the official synopsis, nerds:
At 12 years old, Kara Zor-El escapes doom on planet Krypton to find protection on Earth with the Danver family, where she grows up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learns to hide the extraordinary powers she shares with her cousin, Superman. Now an adult living in National City and working for media mogul Cat Grant, Kara finds her days of keeping her abilities a secret are over when super-secret agency head Hank Henshaw enlists her to help protect the city’s citizens from threats. Finally coming into her own, Kara must juggle her new responsibilities with her very human relationships.
I’m not really familiar with most of Melissa Benoist’s work. Her character is very lovable in the first episode of the CBS show, which is destine to be a huge hit us single-and-ready-to-mingle millennials. But, while watching the first episode last night, I kept having this nagging “where do I know this actress from?” moment. I haven’t watched a single episode of Glee in my life. And Whiplash is still in the “do watch” queue. Then it clicked (…thanks to the help of Google) — Melissa Benoist a.k.a Supergirl had an absurd nude scene in the first season of Homeland.
She played Stacy Moore in the show’s first season, a woman interviewing to be the harem of Saudi Prince Farid Bin Abbud. Perhaps you best recall the nude scene when the Saudi Prince’s assistant interviewed her naked in a D.C. hotel room, grabbing her crotch and saying “you’ll need to wax.” What a non-HR friendly application process!
Anyway, if you want to watch or re-visit the Melissa Benoist nude scene, just go back on Amazon Prime and watch it again — It’s literally the show’s second episode of all time.
Just me or does 2011 not feel all that long ago? Premium cable, FTW.
