SUPERGIRL Casts Tough As Nails Police Officer Maggie Sawyer

Floriana Lima to play alien-involved National City police officer Maggie Sawyer on SUPERGIRL!

Maggie Sawyer is coming to Supergirl, bringing another good guy into Kara El-Zor’s world and more LGBT representation to DC Comics’ television adaptations.

Floriana Lima will play the character, who will be trading in her Metropolis police department credentials from the comics for a shiny new National City badge. Maggie has a particular interest with cases involving aliens, which will lead her straight into Supergirl’s path. Given that she heads up the Major Crimes Unit in most of her comic iterations, we imagine she’ll rise up the ranks fast!

In the comics, Maggie Sawyer has been a known lesbian since her comics debut in 1987 and has had notable relationships with Renee Montoya (Barbara Kean’s lover on Gotham) and Kate Kane aka Batwoman.

Floriana Lima has previously starred in The Mob Doctor, The Family, and Allegiance, among other roles. She joins Tyler Hoechlin (Superman/Clark Kent,) Lynda Carter (the Us president,) and Ian Gomez (Snapper Carr) as a newcomer for Supergirl Season 2.

Supergirl flies from CBS to The CW for its Season 2 debut on Monday, October 10, 2016.
