Maisie Richardson-Sellers is best known for her role in superhero series, “Legends of Tomorrow,” and hints that a return to the show is highly probable.
Richardson-Sellers has portrayed both Amaya Jiwe/Vixen and Charlie/Clotho in the Arroverse series. Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, the British actress refused to close the door on a possible reemergence on the show.
“Is anyone ever done on Legends (Laughs.)? But I have left the show as a series regular, which was a really tough but positive decision that I made because I really want to pour more energy and time into Barefaced Productions and getting projects off the ground, and I just couldn’t do that with the [Legends] shooting schedule,” she explained.
DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow” is based on the characters of DC Comics, airs on The CW and is a spin-off featuring characters introduced in Arrow and The Flash, Supergirl as well as several new characters.
“I learned so much from Legends. It was such a family environment, and I love them all. And I’ve made it very clear that if they ever actually accidentally need Charlie or Amaya for a mission, I’d be more than down. So, I don’t think it’s fully goodbye yet. I hope. I’m not dead. And even dying means nothing on the show anyway.”
Her character Charlie is a queer Black superhero — Richardson-Sellers says the LGBTQ+ community has been incredibly supportive of the role.
“The Legends fan base is incredible. They’re extremely supportive and really loving and open. I’ve had so many great conversations at conventions with fans saying how it has impacted them,” she shared to Elle.com.
“I know growing up as a queer woman of color, how important seeing those characters were for me — they were so few and far between for me and so limited to certain genres. It’s inspiring and humbling. I feel proud to be part of increased diversity and representation onscreen, especially within these alternative genres.”
