You might have seen Azie Tesfai making out with her on-screen girlfriend Chyler Leigh on Supergirl and wondered if she is a lesbian. Well, if you did, you’re not the only one.
Moreover, Chyler, who came out as gay as Supergirl progressed, really did put a lot of doubt about Azie’s sexuality too.
But as of 2021, Azie had yet to speak about her sexual preferences.
As for her take on portraying a lesbian character on Supergirl, Azie explained how proud she is of representing people of color, women, and sexuality in the hit show.
“It’s been such an honor to play Kelly Olsen, a BIPOC and queer character in the DC universe. Working in our amazing writer’s room and co-writing an episode has been an immensely educational and empowering experience,” she said in a statement received by EW.
Spoilers alert: On Supergirl, Azie and Chyler’s characters are married in the end, and this has been an inspiration to many. A fan captioned their wedding pics, “Wives who reinforce my desire to be a better person, to love better. to be better for each other and me. and it made me feel more like getting married and adopting a child. Thank you for this amazing journey.”
Also, their wedding was celebrated by many over the Tweets as Supergirl’s final season ended in mid-2021.

Besides being an actor, Azie is also a philanthropist. She was the founder of Fortuned Culture, a company with the mission to design jewelry for charitable giving, in 2014.
Reportedly, her company sold health bracelets for $30 then.
But Azie never dreamed of becoming an actor. She wanted to be “as far away from the industry as (she) could get” while she was young. Though she loved theater as a hobby and creative outlet, she was more focused on studying instead.
Thus, she went on to earn her bachelor in science in Business Administration from the University of California, Berkeley, USA, to build her career academically. “I thought I’d be an entertainment or corporate lawyer, and I was planning on applying to law school,” she said.
However, midway through, she wanted to take a break and do “random things”. Which ended up with her auditioning for Wicked Wicked Games, and she got selected. Rest is history.
