Two more cast members have been added to DC Universe’s upcoming Stargirl series, one as a villain, another in an unspecified role.

According to Deadline, Meg DeLacy has joined the cast of Stargirl as a character named Cindy Burman, and Jake Austin Walker has also been added to the cast in an undisclosed role. DeLacy’s most recent role was on Freeform’s series The Fosters, while Walker has appeared in Rectify, Fear the Walking Dead, and Lethal Weapon.

DeLacy’s character Cindy is going to be depicted as the most popular girl student at Blue Valley High, presumably where most of the series will take place in, and is secretly the daughter of villain Dragon King, played by Nelson Lee. This is not a very huge departure in the comics either with her description sounding word for word who she is in the comics.

Created by Geoff Johns and John Moder, Cindy Burman is the daughter of the supervillain Dragon King and in order to impress her father, she follows in his footsteps as the villain called Shiv. After moving to Blue Valley, Nebraska, she and father ended up coming toe to toe with Stargirl and S.T.R.I.P.E., which caused her father to be killed, creating a deep hatred for Courtney for Cindy.

Geoff Johns seems to be pulling a lot of influences from his initial work with Stargirl, herself a creation of Johns and based on his sister who died in a plane explosion, in the pages of Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. and it seems that the show will be an adaptation, or at least partially, of Johns’ run on that series.
