Jewel Staite Cast as Genius Inventor in Legends of Tomorrow

Jewel Staite

The Arrowverse can always use more tech geniuses/IT people/inventors…

TVLine reports that Firefly and Stargate Atlantis actress, Jewel Staite, has been cast to play Rachel Turner in a guest role on The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow.

Rachel will be “a tech genius/roboticist who exists in a future in which technology has an even firmer grip on our lives than it does today.” The report promises that Rachel will be a descendant in a “long line of inventors” in the DC Universe. And, of course, the question is… who could that be?

Considering that Legends of Tomorrow is big on time travel, my guess is that Rachel Turner will be the descendant of an inventor we have already seen on screen — Felicity Smoak, Caitlyn Snow, Cisco Ramone, Curtis Holt, or even Ray Palmer.

TVLine says one of her inventions 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.”

Jewel Staite appears in episode 10 of Legends of Tomorrow. Legends premieres on Thursday, January 21 at 8pm EST.SuperFable
