Supergirl Finds Its Electrifying Villainess

True Blood alum Brit Morgan is turning in her werewolf fur for something a little more shocking as she joins CBS’ Supergirl with a guest spot as the villainess Livewire in a season one episode. Livewire, aka Leslie Willis, also spends time in the DC Comic world pestering Superman. In the comics, Leslie was electrocuted, which transformed her into the bright blue-haired, pale-skinned Livewire with the ability to control electricity. Variety reports that the Supergirl version of Livewire will be quite similar with some added confidence and humor. Supergirl also recently added Peter Facinelli as Maxwell Lord- a green tech billionaire who has a friendly rivalry with Cat Grant, Jenna Dewan-Tatum as Lucy Lane, and Chris Browning as another DC antagonist, Reactron. There are also a number of well-known DC characters who will be making an appearance, but have yet to be cast. Executive producer, Andrew Kreisberg teases that there will be some big surprises coming for fans, according to Variety. To see Livewire in action, tune into the Supergirl premiere Monday, Oct. 26 at 8:30/7:30c before it moves to its regular time of 8/7c the following week.
