Stacey Farber, aka Degrassi‘s Ellie Nash, will recur on The CW’s Superman & Lois as Leslie Larr, the right hand to one of the most influential people on the planet, The Wrap reports. That sure sounds like the Supergirl baddie played by Jon Cryer, doesn’t it?

Leslie is described as having “gone from a young, idealistic dreamer to a hardened, world-worn dream killer.” She is athletic, strong and, oftentimes, heartless.

Farber’s other TV credits include the short-lived CW drama Cult, as well as Saving Hope and 18 to Life.

Superman & Lois is slated to premiere in January 2021.
