Season 5 of Supergirl is adding a few new recurring faces! Deadline Hollywood revealed today that Cara Buono (Stranger Things) and Mitch Pileggi (The X-Files) have booked recurring gigs as two new DC Comics characters. Buono will be playing Gamemnae while Pileggi will be portraying Rama Khan. This is how Warner Bros. TV describes the Supergirl version of the characters:
“Gamemnae, an ancient alien, who with others of her kind, have been safeguarding the Earth from the follies of humanity throughout the ages. Gamemnae’s aim is to use technology to subjegate humans. Gamemnae is cunning, witty, ruthless, and always ten steps ahead of her adversaries. Gamemnae’s agenda puts her into conflict with her would-be allies and on a collision course with Supergirl.
Pileggi will recur as Rama Khan, an ancient alien who is able to control the four ancient elements — fire, water, earth, and air. Arrogant and willful, Rama Khan has been entrusted to use his powers to protect the Earth from mankind for millions of years but now his agenda puts him at odds with Supergirl as well as Lena Luthor.”
Supergirl Season 5 premieres on Sunday, October 6 at 9/8c on The CW.
