Katie McGrath Joins ‘Supergirl’

Looks like Supergirl will be meeting a Luthor in season two.

TVLine is reporting that Merlin‘s Katie McGrath will be joining the cast in a recurring role as Lena Luthor, Lex Luthor’s sister.

Supergirl‘s Lena Luthor will be looking to make a fresh start for her and her family’s empire after Lex is sent to prison. She will be looking to get away from Lex’s villainy by trying to change Luthor Corp.’s image while also trying to step out of her family’s shadow and prove that she is her own person. When she meets Kara, Supergirl will have to determine whether she’s more like her brother than she thinks or if she can be trusted.

McGrath joins new incoming members Ian Gomez as Kara’s new boss, Tyler Hoechlin as Kara’s cousin Clark/Superman, Floriana Lima as Metropolis Police Captain Maggie Sawyer, and Chris Woods in a mystery role.

Supergirl makes its CW debut Monday, October 10 at 8 p.m.
