Emma Caulfield (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer“) has joined the cast of CBS’ “Supergirl“. The Darkness Falls* actress has filled the role of Cameron Chase. Set to be an FBI agent on the series (at least at first), Chase was a determined DEO agent in the source material, so don’t be too surprised if she ultimately switches agencies at some point in the series.
Here’s the official take on what to expect from Caulfield’s character…
“After her father’s violent murder, Cameron Chase decided to dedicate her life to law enforcement. Now a stern, no holds barred FBI agent, Chase’s weapons of choice are manipulation and manpower. With little sympathy, and plenty of suspicions, she pursues her targets with ruthless determination.”
A cop with a personal vendetta is nothing new to this genre and it certainly isn’t anything new to the superhero shows produced by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, and Sarah Schechter. Paul Blackthorne fits that same bill on “Arrow” and Shantel VanSanten’s Patty Spivot does as well on “The Flash“. I don’t have mch experience with Caulfield, as I never really got into “Buffy”, but here’s hoping that she is given plenty to work with in her role so that she can make it stand out from the others.
* – I have a soft spot for this movie.
