Ok, I’m not going to lie, I’ve had a biggest crush on Jewel Staite since she first fixed that only Firefly ship. And, as it happens, as much as I love most genre TV, I have to say that Arrow and Flash are definitely my favourite shows right now.

So imagine how excited I am for Legends of Tomorrow and now, just when I thought I couldn’t be more excited for it, it’s announced that Staite will be in it!

TVLine are reporting that the actress will play a character called Rachel Turner: “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 actress will appear in episode ten of the show and is a descendent of a DC character… although who is a mystery. Could it be Felicity, perhaps? We don’t know. What we do know is that she “believes that her creations can make that world a better place,” but villain Vandal Savage will turn them to evil.

It’ll be great to see her in the DC TV universe, no matter what the capacity… here’s hoping it’s more than just a ‘guest appearance’.

Legends of Tomorrow premieres on the CW on Thursday, Jan. 21 at 8 PM ET.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
