Courtney Ford Joins ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ as Damien Darhk’s Daughter
The superhero team of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will have no shortage of villains to fight in season three. Joining the previously announced Tracy Ifeachor as Kuasa and the returning Neal McDonough as Damien Darhk, will be Courtney Ford as Darhk’s daughter Eleanor.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Eleanor will be “smart and cunning with a charming dose of otherworldly creepiness.” Her innocent looks will distract from her intelligence and manipulations.
As part of the Legion of Doom, Darhk was a principal villain in season two. While, that version was taken from a timeline before he showed up in Arrow season four, this iteration will be a resurrected Darhk from after he was killed by Green Arrow.
Joining Darhk and Kuasa as the Waverider crew’s season three nemesis is The Flash’s Gorilla Grodd. Executive producer Marc Guggenheim explained the show’s take on this new team of villains to Entertainment Weekly.
“We’re going to have a group of villains that’s going to have little bit more of a rotating membership,” said Guggenheim.
Fun fact: Ford is married to Legends of Tomorrow star Brandon Routh and Ray will be attracted to her, despite how evil she is.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow premieres its third season Tuesday, Oct. 10 at 9 pm on The CW.
