Kearran Giovanni (Major Crimes) is set to join season two of Black Lightning in a recurring role.
Giovanni will play Cutter, a smart, proud, tough and beautiful woman more than able to best a man in combat — a mercenary trained by British intelligence.
Black Lightning focuses on Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams), a father of two daughters and principal of a charter high school, who is pulled back into the fight as the wanted vigilante and DC legend Black Lightning.
Giovanni is known for her role as Amy Sykes on TNT’s Major Crimes, which wrapped its sixth and final season earlier this year.
Season 2 of Black Lightning launches October 9 on the CW.
