After roles in Smallville and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., actress Elena Satine is set to add another superhero show to her resume, with The Gifted showrunner Matt Nix revealing that she is set to take on the role of Dreamer (a.k.a. the Morlock character Beautiful Dreamer) in the X-Men series The Gifted.
Screen Rant reports that Nix has revealed that the character will make her debut in the second episode of the new TV series, and will find herself involved in a love triangle with Thunderbird (Blair Redford) and another as-yet-unrevealed character.
Nix also spoke about the character’s mutant abilities, stating that: “One of the things about her character is that’s a really sexy power that isn’t a gigantic power. We aren’t blowing up a building with her … it doesn’t involve a six-week CG build.”
Satine previously portrayed the character of Mera on Smallville, as well as the Enchantress’ sister Lorelei on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..
Action-adventure family drama THE GIFTED, from Marvel, tells the story of a suburban couple whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.
The Gifted is set to premiere on Fox on Monday, October 2nd, and featured a cast that includes Stephen Moyer (True Blood), Amy Acker (Person of Interest), Natalie Alyn Lind (Gotham), Emma Dumont (Pretty Little Liars), Jamie Chung (Gotham), Blair Redford (Switched at Birth), Sean Teale (Incorporated), Coby Bell (Burn Notice), Joseph Morgan (The Originals) and Elena Satine (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.).
