Silver Banshee is the latest villain headed to CBS's Supergirl. Chasing Life actor Italia Ricci has been cast as Siobhan Smythe, A.K.A. Silver Banshee, a character with a long comic book history with Supergirl.
The official character description from CBS describes Smythe as “Cat Grant's latest hire who at first becomes a work nemesis for Kara. But she later proves a more deadly foe for Supergirl when she takes on the mantle of DC Comics villain, Silver Banshee."
Silver Banshee debuted as a Superman foe, though in recent comic books, Siobhan Smythe actually became a close friend of Kara Zor-El.
Interestingly, Ricci is also romantically linked to the CW's one-time Firestorm, actor Robbie Amell.
Ricci will debut as Smythe in episode 14 of Supergirl.
Supergirl airs Monday nights on CBS.
