RadioFree.com: You did such an amazing job at playing a younger version of Melissa Benoist's Kara Danvers...
IZABELA: Thank you!
How did you prepare for the role?
I hadn't seen Supergirl, really, before I auditioned for it, but when I did, I watched a ton of episodes. And then when I booked it, I sort of binged it. And it's an awesome show. I think it's really cool. And I really got to familiarize myself with Melissa and her mannerisms. And playing a younger version of somebody, I think it's important that you understand their mannerisms and what they do. And so I think that I definitely did my research, and I'm glad that it reflected.
Currently, have you shot any other material for the show? A few episodes after "Midvale," we see adult Kara looking at a childhood photograph of her with a pet. Did you take that picture?
Yes, I did. It was [with] a black cat and it was dark. It's a very quick shot. I know because somebody screenshotted it (that's not a word!) and tagged me on Twitter. [laughs] They asked me to take that picture. So I was aware of that, but I haven't filmed anything else.
Any chance you'll get to revisit the role?
I really don't know, but I would love to. I'm not sure as of now.
What's your own origin story in terms of your work? What got you into acting?
I got into acting at the age of 7. And my mom is a filmmaker and an actress. So through her, I was inspired--you know, just seeing her in her element and what she does, and that definitely drove me into this industry.
Did she encourage such an early career choice, or did she try to dissuade you, knowing the pitfalls and difficulties of show business?
[laughs] She didn't really encourage or dissuade me. It wasn't through her, exactly, that I got in. It was somebody who had introduced me to an agent, and it was through that. But I was interested from a very young age because of her. So I think that once she saw my passion for it, she encouraged it, but she didn't initially do that.
Between Wonder and Supergirl, you've demonstrated a great ability to make people cry. Can you wield that power at whim in real life?
[laughs] No! I can't do that outside of acting.
[laughs] You need a script...
Yeah, I need to be something else! Otherwise I'm a terrible liar. No, my acting skills do not come in handy otherwise. [laughs]
What project can fans expect to see you in next?
I'm going to be on another CW show, on iZombie. I'll be on this new [fourth] season. So you can catch me on that!
Will you be making people cry again?
[laughs] Yes. I really can't say more, but yes.
Any plans on returning to writing and producing?
Yes! I do plan [on it]. I have a production company.
Thank you again for your time, it's been a pleasure speaking with you.
I appreciate it, thank you very much...It was so nice to meet you!
