Lisseth Chavez is joining the crew on the Waverider!

It was just announced that the 31-year-old actress has been cast as Esperanza “Spooner” Cruz for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow‘s upcoming sixth season.

Here’s a character description: Tough and self-sufficient, Spooner Cruz lives off the grid, devising ingenious tech for the detection of—and defense against—space aliens. And while some might call her paranoid, she calls it being prepared.

A survivor of a childhood alien encounter, Spooner now believes she has the ability to communicate telepathically with aliens—making her the perfect recruit for Waverider captains Sara Lance, Ava Sharpe and the Legends who, in season six, will be hunting down extraterrestrials who have been displaced throughout history.

“HELLOOOOO LEGENDS! Looks like I’ll be joining the DC Universe 🙌🏽so many changes this year, feeling grateful for this opportunity. I cant wait for you all to meet Esperanza aka SPOONER. Canada🇨🇦 I’m looking forward to calling you my second home🤘🏽. I’m ready for this new journey-LETS KICK SOME ASS!! 💥,” Lisseth wrote on her Instagram page.

Lisseth has left her role on Chicago PD as Officer Vanessa Rojas to join the Legends. You may also recognize her from her roles on The Fosters and The OA.
