Dear McGeeks, we have decided to turn this live journal community into a FYKMG weekly newsletter!
With the approaching new seasons of Supergirl we're looking forward to very busy months of promoting: between stills, spoilers, trailers and hopefully new interviews we should never be short of updates.
Our main blog (Fy-katiemcgrath on Tumblr) will continously be updated, so think of this lj as an archive/masterpost :)

Starting from this very Sunday we'll update with all recent news of Katie's upcoming projects!

♠ And here's our beautiful Katie as Lena Luthor on ep. 2.01 of Supergirl on The CW (x)

Supergirl’s second season is shaping up very nicely indeed, now that she’s in her rightful place on The CW. Even before the announcement of a Supergirl/Flash musical crossoverearlier today (August 11), there was a lot to get excited about.

First and foremost, Merlin’s Katie McGrath has been cast as Lena Luthor, Lex’s sister, who will share a complex friendship with Kara (Melissa Benoist).

Following the DC TV panel at the TCA Press Tour today (August 11), Digital Spy grabbed the chance to grill executive producers Sarah Schechter and Ali Adler about the addition of McGrath.
She is so cool,” enthused Schechter. “What a devilish, wonderful personality."
Kara finally gets a friend, who isn’t a sister and isn’t an adversary,“ added Adler. ”She gets a peer, who she can discuss her personal and professional goals with.“

Lena presents herself as having very, very different goals than her brother,“ Schechter said. ”That allows for a very complicated, grounded relationship [with Kara]".
"We talked a lot, as a model, about the values of a democrat and the values of a republican clashing, but they can still be friends,“ added Adler.

Supergirl season 2 has cast the younger sister of Lex Luthor, Lena.

Katie McGrath, well known for her work on Merlin, will play Lena Luthor, reports TVLine. The role will be recurring.
Lena is described as “[b]eautiful, powerful, and enigmatic.” She comes to National City shortly after her brother goes to prison in search of a fresh start. To that end, Lena will act as CEO of Luthor Corp, her family’s tech company whose image has been affected by her brother’s actions. Her goal is to “re-brand the empire as a force for good.”
Though she wants to “be seen as her own person” rather than an extension of her brother, Kara “is drawn into Lena’s sphere and must determine if she is friend or foe.”

In the DC Comics, there are multiple interpretations of Lena. In the Silver Age, Lex left home when she was young and her parents changed their names before telling Lena her brother had been killed. She spent many years believing that she didn’t have a brother before learning the truth. In this incarnation, she also had psychic abilities. In the New 52, meanwhile, Lena became ill when Lex was 17 and became paraplegic. Lex failed in his efforts to heal her and kept her hidden away at LexCorp.

Supergirl season 2 premieres Monday, October 10 at 8:00 p.m. ET on The CW.
