The CW’s Supergirl has cast Major Crimes alum Jessica Meraz in the recurring role of Pamela Ferrer aka Menagerie, TVLine has confirmed.
An iconic DC villain and a member of The Elite — an assembly of antiheroes led by Manchester Black (played by David Ajala) — Menagerie in her live-action TV incarnation is a jewel thief who doesn’t mind hurting people.
Our sister site Deadline first reported on the casting.
In addition to her final-season run as Major Crimes‘ Detective Camila “Cami” Paige, Meraz’s previous TV credits include Chasing Life and episodes of Baby Daddy and Greek.
Supergirl airs Sundays at 8/7c (except for this coming week, when it airs on Tuesday as the “Elseworlds” crossover event’s Part 3 finale; it’s complicated). The timetable for Meraz’s first appearance is not being made available.
