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.
