DC Universe’s upcoming Stargirl series has added two more young actors to its growing cast. Meg DeLacey (The Fosters) and Jake Austin Walker (Fear The Walking Dead) are the latest to join the streaming service’s latest show. DeLacey will play ruthless high school student Cindy Burman while Walker’s role remains undisclosed.
DeLacey’s character Cindy Burman is described as “Blue Valley High’s most popular student… and its most feared. Secretly the daughter of Dragon King (played by Nelson Lee), a longtime enemy of the Justice Society of America, Cindy is determined to follow in her father’s footsteps.”
DC Comics writer Geoff Johns, who created Stargirl, is set to write and produce the series alongside Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Melissa Carter.
Stargirl will follow the story of Courtney Whitmore (Bassinger) who is a smart, athletic and above all else kind girl. This high school teenager’s seemingly perfect life hits a major speedbump when her mother gets married and her new family moves from Los Angeles, California to Blue Valley, Nebraska. Struggling to adapt to a new school, make new friends and deal with a new step-family, Courtney discovers her step-father has a secret; he used to be the sidekick to a superhero. “Borrowing” the long-lost hero’s cosmic staff, Courtney becomes the unlikely inspiration for an entirely new generation of superheroes.
