Maisie Richardson-Sellers’s character Amaya aka Vixen departed the Waverider of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow last year to start her family line that would culminate into the modern-day Mari introduced in her animated spinoff on CW Seed. That being said, and her heartbreaking goodbye to Nate, fans had thought they’d seen the last of her.
Richardson-Sellers returns to Legends in this week’s episode entitled “Dancing Queen,” but not as Amaya. Rather, she is reappearing in the 1970s as a character called Charlie.
“Everything Amaya is,” Maisie explains, “Charlie is the opposite, so they would never get along. She’s snarky, she’s cheesy, she’s a bit of a rebel, she’s a massive troublemaker, and she’s just out for herself. She doesn’t care about any collective or greater good, so she really shakes up the energy on the ship, so everyone’s a bit confused by her.”
Catch the first look and follow Charlie on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow “Dancing Queen”, out now.
