Exclusive Interview: Maisie Richardson Sellers – Vixen From ‘DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow’
Good morning Maisie. Welcome home and congratulations! Thank you for brilliantly representing the U.K. on Legends Of Tomorrow.
Thank you! It’s so great to be home. Yes, the Brits are taking over!
: I know! You and Franz (Drameh: Firestorm) on Legends, Paul Blackthorne (Quentin Lance) on Arrow, and Sean Pertwee (Alfred) in Gotham. You guys are just killing it.
: And loving it.
: Did working on Legends spark an interest in comics, or were you a fan already?
: I was always aware of the comics, I mean… who doesn’t know Batman and Superman, right? What I didn’t realise was the wealth, richness and diversity of some of the lesser known characters. The wealth of amazing female characters.
: DC has some amazing female characters. I’d say the best in all of comics.
Who Runs The World?
: The cast of characters and actors in Legends Of Tomorrow is fantastic. Are there any more characters you’d like to see on the show?
: We did the huge Invasion Crossover, where almost everyone from all four shows appeared, that was so much fun. I definitely want to do more of that. There were some people that I think could’ve been there in bigger roles, that weren’t as much as I would’ve liked.
: I know I would’ve liked to see all the characters, but even doing what you did was incredible, and must’ve been a logistical nightmare.
: Oh, wait ’til the next one!
: I’m excited already! So who did you miss that you wanted to be in it?
: Emily (Bett Rickards: Felicity Smoak). I’d love to work with Emily and do scenes with Felicity and Amaya together, We’ve not had that.
: Wow, you’re right.
: In fact, I’d love an episode or crossover with just the ladies. Vixen, Sara, Supergirl… all the girls going on a mission on their own. That would be so great!
: I’d watch the hell out of that, it would be awesome!
: Yes, it would!
: I’ll look forward to seeing that. Thanks so much for talking to me. Keep representing and keep up the great work.
: Thank you. Keep watching! The best is yet to come.
