Although she did not describe herself or her sexual activity in particular, in a recent post on the Create Change website (Chyler Leigh helped collaborate together which is “the source of the transfer, encouragement and inspiration to help you become the change you want to see in the world “). ), She talks to me about how the journey and the removal of the story from her super-girl personality openly helped Alex Danvers to start his own path.
Chyler Leigh said”When I was told that my character was coming out in the second season, a group of thoughts and emotions moved around me because of the responsibility I felt personally to represent Alex’s journey in a way authentic, “she wrote. “What I didn’t know was how the scene in which I finally confessed that her truth would skip pages of text and really become a page different from me. IRL. My heart felt like it would touch my whole chest. Take pictures whenever it offered another chance to get those honest words out of my mouth. ” Although it didn’t quite match my personal speech, the heart behind it was definitely like that. From the director, the press, the media, actors and fans, I always tell myself that it was the most realistic scene they had ever seen. And for stealing Alex’s words, it’s because There is truth in what she said about me. ”
It also showed me how openly playing a strange character in a very popular television program has distanced some of her friends and conservative family, but how proud she is of the “long and unique road”. that she borrowed “regardless of cost”.
“Here’s the kick,” she said. “Since this episode aired, dear friends (and even thirsty spectators of Supergirl) have been informed that they will no longer be watching the program due to the fact that Alex’s journey has ended their beliefs Shortly after, they started to banish themselves and finally my family and I outcast, which indicates the loss of many people we loved. However, after the initial sting, I don’t blame myself for it. the negative answer, because as I said, we all had a difficult time in one way or another with acceptance (whatever the subject) towards ourselves or others. ”
“It was a long and lonely road for my husband and myself, but I can say without reservation that after all these years we still discover the depths of ourselves and each other, but during our journey , we have learned to be proud of who we are, no matter what the cost. ” Legg is married to Nathan West and has three children.

In a recent post on the Creation of Change website, an LGBT + co-star that the actress co-founded revealed to me that she had no idea how this scene sounded for her personally. and its importance.
She wrote: “When I was told that my character was coming out in the second season, a group of thoughts and emotions moved around me and those around me because of the responsibility I felt to represent Alex’s journey in an authentic way. ”
“What I didn’t know was how the scene where I finally admitted that his health was skipping pages of text and becoming a really different form for me. IRL.
“My heart felt like I was touching my chest every time I shot it, every time it offered another chance to get those honest words out for me. Although they don’t exactly correspond to my personal dialogue, the heart is definitely behind. From the director, the media, the media, actors and fans, I keep going.
