According to ETonline, actress Italia Ricci has been casted as Siobhan Smythe, AKA Silver Banshee, in Supergirl’s First Season. She will first appear in episode 14 in a major recurring role.

Siobhan Smythe will be Cat Grant’s latest hire at CatCo, who at first becomes a work nemesis for Kara but proves a more deadly foe for Supergirl (played by Melissa Benoist) when she becomes DC villain Silver Banshee.

“We are so excited to be working with Italia. We’ve been a fan of her work for years and we cannot wait to see her take on this iconic comic book role,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said in an exclusive statement.
