The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers reveal that Sasha Calle (Lola Rosales) has landed an exciting new role that already has the Internet buzzing. According to Deadline, Calle has been cast as the DC Universe’s new Supergirl. She’s all set to debut in The Flash movie, which is set to start production soon.
Calle beat over 425 actresses to score the part and will be the DC Universe’s first Latina Supergirl, so this is fantastic news all around. Since this is such a huge deal and points to Calle’s career really taking off, it seems safe to say we’ll be saying goodbye to Lola on The Young and the Restless.
Calle’s new role will keep her busy and lead to plenty of other opportunities.
Andy Muschietti is serving as the director on The Flash film, so he was the one who offered updates to Calle after she won the role. On Instagram, Muschietti shared a video of the big moment when Calle found out she was indeed the new Supergirl.
After pretending it wasn’t a done deal yet, Muschietti asked Calle if she could fly. Calle expressed confusion, so that led to a funny exchange until Muschietti ultimately brought out the Supergirl suit.
Once Muschietti confirmed that Calle got the part, she broke down in happy tears and offered her gratitude.
“Little me would be like, ‘No way!’” Calle said with a laugh. “Can I freak out for a second?” Calle admitted she probably wasn’t going to stop crying all day and once again shared how thankful she is for the role.
This obviously means a lot to Calle, who’ll no doubt bring some great layers in her Supergirl portrayal – just as Y&R fans have already seen her do as Lola Rosales on Y&R.
Of course, Lola has faded to the background in Genoa City lately, which has left fans wondering just how long she’d stick around. It appears not for long now that we have this Supergirl shocker and the news that Calle’s a rising star.
