Casting News - 'Chicago P.D.'s Lisseth Chavez Boards The CW's 'Legends of Tomorrow' as New Series Regular

Casting News - September 12, 2020

The CW's Legends of Tomorrow.

  • Lisseth Chavez has joined the drama's upcoming sixth season as a new series regular. She recently starred in the seventh season of NBC's Chicago P.D. but will not be returning for the upcoming eighth season. She previously recurred on Freeform's The Fosters and Netflix's The OA.
  • She will play Esperanza "Spooner" Cruz. Tough and self-sufficient, she lives off the grid, devising ingenious tech for the detection of - and defense against - space aliens. And while some might call her paranoid, she calls it being prepared. A survivor of a childhood alien encounter, she now believes she has the ability to communicate telepathically with aliens - making her the perfect recruit for Waverider captains Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) and Ava Sharpe (Jes Macallan).
