Legends of Tomorrow has cast Lisseth Chavez (Chicago P.D.) in the series-regular role of alien expert Esperanza “Spooner” Cruz. Chavez will not return to NBC’s cop drama P.D. for Season 8.
And though Spooner may help the Legends, she won’t necessarily be friends with them. “She is not going to be the lovable loser that we normally have,” executive producer Grainne Godfree shared during the show’s complete DC FanDome. “She’s going to be someone who is pretty tough and gives it to the other Legends, and they’re going all have to react to her, and I think it’s going to throw them off their feet a little bit.” Welcome aboard the Waverider Lisseth Chavez!
