Firefly alum Jewel Staite is joining the CW's DC's Legends of Tomorrow, according to TVLine. The veteran scifi actor will reportedly play a "tech genius/roboticist" from the future named Rachel Turner. Staite will reportedly debut in the freshman show's tenth episode.
"A descendant of a long line of inventors — one of whom turns out to be someone from the DC Universe! — Rachel believes that her creations can make that world a better place," TVLine describes. "Alas, what the brilliant beauty cannot foresee is that her work is destined to fall into the hands of immortal baddie Vandal Savage, who will use it to take over the world. Unless Rachel can team up with the Legends to stop him."
After making a name for herself in Firefly, Staite has gone on to play roles in The Killing and Stargate: Atlantis.
DC's Legends of Tomorrow debuts January 21 on the CW.
