It’s been a pretty great year for actress Stephanie Corneliussen. For those of you unfamiliar with the name, you may recognize the face as she played Tyrell Wellick’s wife Joanna in this summer’s best show Mr. Robot. What’s interesting about Corneliussen is, that when glancing at her IMDb page, it seems she has only really been acting professionally for a bit more than a year. And now, according to The Wrap, the actress scored her next cool gig and will be appearing in multiple episodes of The CW’s Arrow / Flash spin-off, Legends of Tomorrow.
Corneliussen will be joining the DC-themed show as Valentina Vostok — also known as Negative Woman — who is being described as “a beautiful and brainy Russian scientist” who meets our time-traveling heroes during the height of the Cold War. Vostok, being a suspected partner in crime with the show’s big villain Vandal Savage (Casper Crump), the story arc will find The Atom (Brandon Routh) and Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) battling for her affections to figure out where her true loyalties lie.
Legends of Tomorrow is The CW’s next step in cementing a DC cinematic universe on the small-screen. The spin-off will also feature a roster of heroes and villains including Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell), Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill), Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), and Dr. Martin Stein (Victor Garber). Legend of Tomorrow is set to premiere in January 2016.
