Kaci Walfall is The CW's newest superhero. The 17-year-old actor stars as the titular Naomi on the DC drama, which follows the high school student as she sets out to uncover a mysterious Superman sighting in her hometown of Port Oswego. During the show's Jan. 11 premiere episode, we see Naomi riding her skateboard all over the city (before her parents surprise her with a car, that is), but was that really Walfall that we saw on screen?

Turns out, Walfall actually had a stunt double for those skateboarding scenes. In an interview with TVLine, the actor revealed that she wasn't able to get on a skateboard because she's underage and didn't have any prior experience. So, that's where her stunt double, Nadia Lorencz, stepped in.

"Nadia was great, and she really matched me physically," Walfall said. "I'm really grateful for the stunt coordinators. I have a background in dance, and when it came to fight choreography, I found my strength in that. It was like dancing with a partner."

We'll be on the lookout for more stunts from Lorencz when Naomi returns with a new episode next Tuesday.
