Italia Ricci Joins ‘Supergirl’ as Silver Banshee

Supergirl is about to face one deadly foe.

Italia Ricci has landed a major recurring role of Siobhan Smythe aka Silver Banshee on Supergirl, reports ETonline. Ricci will first appear in episode 14 of the series.

Smythe is described as “Cat Grant’s latest hire at CatCo, who at first becomes a work nemesis for Kara but proves a more deadly foe for Supergirl 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 told the site.

The comic version of Silver Banshee has superhuman strength, speed, endurance, agility, an ability to resist attacks and a gift for languages.

Supergirl airs Mondays at 8/7c on CBS.
