We love our DC shows and can’t wait for the midseason because that is when we will be able to embrace Black Lightning.
Variety reports that Chantal Thuy has been cast in a recurring role as Grace Choi in the upcoming series. According to the report, Choi will be a bartender who becomes a love interest for Jefferson Pierce’s daughter, Anissa Pierce (Nafessa Williams). It remains to be seen whether she will retain her Amazonian background.
If you aren’t familiar with Black Lightning, it centers on Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams). He made his choice: He hung up the suit and his secret identity years ago, but with a daughter, Jennifer, hellbent on justice and a star student being recruited by a local gang, he’ll be pulled back into the fight as the wanted vigilante and DC legend Black Lightning.
Choi made her first appearance in Outsiders #1 as a bouncer with superior strength, durability, endurance, and healing. Chantal Thuy has previously appeared in Madam Secretary and Pretty Little Liars.
Black Lightning premieres in 2018.
