Italia Ricci has joined the cast of Supergirl in a recurring role, EW has learned.

The Chasing Life star will first appear in episode 14 as Siobhan Smythe, Cat Grant’s (Calista Flockhart) latest hire. At first a work nemesis for Kara (Melissa Benoist), Siobhan later proves a more deadly foe for Supergirl when she takes on the mantle of DC Comics villain Silver Banshee.

“We are so excited to be working with Italia,” says executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. “We’ve been a fan of her work for years, and we cannot wait to see her take on this iconic comic book role.”

Supergirl airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
