Supergirl Casts True Blood Bad Girl as the Villainess Livewire

Fresh off her Graceland run, True Blood alum Brit Morgan has booked an electrifying role on CBS’ Supergirl, as the DC Comics baddie dubbed Livewire.

Per DC Comics lore, Leslie Willis was a Metropolis shock jock who regularly taunted Superman. During an outdoor concert hampered by inclement weather as well as a scuffle with Supes, Leslie was electrocuted, transforming her into the pale-skinned, blue-haired, electricity-manipulating Livewire.

According to our sister site Variety, Supergirl’s take won’t stray far from that, fashioning Leslie as a shock jock who toils for Cat Grant’s CatCo media conglomerate.

In addition to Graceland and her run as True Blood‘s nutty Debbie Pelt, Morgan’s TV credits also include episodes of The Night Shift, The Mentalist and Criminal Minds.

Supergirl premieres Monday, Oct. 26 at 8:30/7:30, before moving to its regular 8 o’clock time slot.

  1. Taking villains from Superman’s rogues because Supergirl has none of worth of her own. Good casting, still.

  2. Sheldon W. says:

    Plus she has superhero cred as a series regular playing Dubbie’s roommate, Lacy Thornfield, on The Middleman!

  3. Joey Padron says:

    Good casting. She’s good on Graceland. I like Liveware character from animated Superman series. Excited to see the character on Supergirl!
