Jesse Rath, who recurred in Season 3 of Supergirl, has been promoted to series regular for Season 4 of the CW series.
Rath plays Brainiac-5. Half computer, half organic life and boasting a 12-level intellect, Brainiac 5 is a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes who travels to National City from the 31st Century to help Supergirl and the DEO battle Reign (Odette Annable). Rath appeared in five episodes in Season 3, which airs its season finale on Monday, June 18.
“We love the character of Brainiac-5 and can’t imagine anyone but Jesse Rath in the role, said executive producers Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller. “He brings such fun, heart and brilliance to Brainy and we’re so excited he’s joining the cast as a series regular for season 4. We have a lot of great Brainy stories to tell.”
Rath is known for his previous work on No Tomorrow for the CW and Syfy’s Defiance. He’s repped by SDB Partners, Amanda Rosenthal Talent and Hess Entertainment.
