Slater attended the High School of performing Arts and matriculated in 1982. She made her acting debut in the same year, appearing in the ABC special “Amy & the Angel” alongside Meg Ryan and James Earl Jones. Two years later, she portrayed Supergirl in the film of the same name which was directed by Jeannot Szwarc. The film was not a success in the box office and received mixed reviews, which would lead to the controversial decision of DC comics killing the character in 1985, though a new Supergirl would later appear in the comics, and the film would slowly develop a cult following.

Helen’s next film would be “The Legend of Billie Jean” in 1985 in which she was paired with Christian Slater. She then appeared in the comedies “The Secret of My Success” and “Ruthless People”. This led to a lot more high profile roles including “City Slickers” alongside Billy Crystal, and “Sticky Fingers”. She also appeared in the film “A House in the Hills” and the crime drama “No Way Back”. She continued her career into the ‘90s and 2000s, with projects such as “12:01” and “Seeing Other People”.

Aside from her films, Slater became a part of numerous television shows, such as “Supernatural”, “Batman: The Animated Series”, and “The Lying Game”. She also appeared in “Seinfeld” as a love interest of Jerry Seinfeld, and had a recurring role in the hit television series “Smallville”. She is also Supergirl’s adoptive mother in the recent “Supergirl” television series. Helen has appeared in various stage projects too, including “Grease”, and “Shakespeare in Friends”. She also co-founded the theatre group called “The Naked Angels”. All have added to her net worth.

Throughout the course of her career, she became part of several musical projects too, including “Lassie” and “Happy Together”. She released the CD “One of These Days” in 2003 which contained original songs. She also became an honoree during the 50th anniversary publication of DC entitled “Fifty Who Made DC Great”. Later on, she would write a Supergirl story entitled “A Hero’s Journey”, which was part of the 50th issue of the “Supergirl” comic book.

For her personal life, it is known that Helen married filmmaker Robert Watzke in 1989, and they have a daughter.

#Quote
1 [on her performance in 'Sticky Fingers' (1988)] One of the ways Melanie and I prepared for our roles was to invent clown characters. My clown's name was 'Colleen,' which we changed to 'Caullie Flower,' and Melanie's clown was 'Little Mellie Joy.' There's an actual specific formula to doing clown work. You have the authority figure and the clown, and what 'clown' means to both Melanie and I is that you're on the wire. That's the beauty of the art of the clown... that they're so open, all the way.
2 [on her character "Mary" in No Way Back (1995)] Mary . . . is a chatty, loopy, quirky flight attendant who doesn't understand all that's going on around her. She realizes the situation soon enough and perceives Yuji is innocent, but she knows that Zack is also in a terrible conflict with his son. Yet she questions him: Why is he doing this? How can he take this guy [Yuji] to his death? Mary wises up very quickly.
3 [on her teen years] I was terribly gawky--too goofy to become a high-kicking cheerleader--with stringy brown hair and bad posture. Definitely nobody noticeable!
4 [about her character "Christy Wills" in The Secret of My Succe$s (1987)] At first I wanted her to appear more military-like, wearing more blue and the like, but then Herb [director Herbert Ross] told me to have her display more female qualities, which turned out to be right because we could then see she was more apt to being both an executive and a woman.
5 [on looking at herself in the home-made Supergirl costume she wore to her audition] I looked at myself in the mirror and I thought, "I look like such a jackass".
6 [on facing mid-life crisis] I can't speak for all women, but I do think that . . . I mean, me and my girlfriends, we definitely . . . we're in crisis on a continuous basis . . . or at least monthly, for sure, I don't know. It's funny because we just bust ourselves! We go to therapy, we eat right, we stay away from caffeine, we try to have loving relationships with our mothers and more communication with our fathers, and still the black abyss will open up!
