Superman & Lois Adds Stacey Farber For Recurring Villain Role

According to The Wrap, Degrassi: The Next Generation alum Stacey Farber has been tapped for a recurring role in The CW‘s forthcoming new Arrowverse series Superman & Lois. The Canadian actress is set to portray the role of Leslie Larr. The character might be inspired by DC Comics villain Lesla-Larr, who was mainly an enemy to Supergirl and was also known as a Kryptonian.

Her official character description reads: “The right hand to one of the most influential people on the planet, she’s gone from a young, idealistic dreamer to a hardened, world-worn dream killer. Athletic, strong… and oftentimes heartless.”
