Currently starring as magnificent Martian J’onn J’onzz in critically-acclaimed TV series Supergirl, David Harewood (Homeland, The Night Manager) is the latest special guest to be confirmed for MCM London, appearing on the Saturday of Britain’s biggest comic con.
The Director of the Department of Extranormal Operations (DEO), Harewood’s character J’onn J’onzz is the Martian Manhunter – the sole survivor of the peaceful race of Green Martians who takes on original DEO director Hank Henshaw’s likeness in order to reform the organisation from within and watch over Supergirl and her adoptive sister Alex. David also has a recurring role as Henshaw himself; although initially presumed dead, the ruthless anti-alien obsessive has resurfaced as Project Cadmus’ Cyborg Superman.
The classically-trained British actor is also well-known for his roles in two top small screen spy dramas, playing CIA counter-terrorism director David Estes in American thriller Homeland and Joel Steadman in the BBC’s award-winning le Carré adaptation, The Night Manager.
