Senegal-born actress Anna Diop, known to TV viewers from series such as 24: Legacy, Greenleaf, and Quantico, has been cast as the character Starfire in DC’s upcoming live-action series Titans.
Written by Greg Berlanti, Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Sarah Schechter and produced by Berlanti Productions and DC Entertainment, the show focuses on a team of young superheroes stemming from various corners of the DC universe, who assemble under the leadership of Dick Grayson (a.k.a. Batman’s sidekick Robin).
Starfire is one of the show’s leads – an alien princess who has escaped from her warrior planet, in order to find asylum on Earth. Serious, practical and a fierce fighter, she has the ability to fly and shoot energy beams.
Diop is the first actress to ever portray Starfire in a live-action production and we are really looking forward to seeing her shine in this exciting role.
