Maria Sten (the lead in the upcoming fourth season of Syfy’s Channel Zero) will be joining Crystal Reed in the upcoming Swamp Thing series for DC Universe. She will be playing “Liz Tremayne.”
Deadline broke the news today, and this is how they describe her character:
Liz Tremayne is a close childhood friend of Abby Arcane’s, who splits her time between reporting for the local paper and bartending at her aging father’s roadhouse bar. Her no-nonsense attitude belies a deep compassion for her friends and family as she sets out in her uncompromising quest to expose the secrets that threaten her beloved hometown.
Elizabeth Tremayne first appeared in Swamp Thing comic books in 1982. Like Abby Arcane (who was earlier known as “Abby Cable”), the character predated the Alan Moore run of the series. In the comic books, she even hosted a tabloid TV show at one point.
