‘Gotham’ actor Crystal Reed is Abby Arcane in ‘Swamp Thing’

Earlier this week we learned that Total Recall director Len Wiseman would direct episode one of Swamp Thing, and now the cast is starting to come together.

DC announced today that Gotham actor Crystal Reed, best known for her role as Sofia Falcone, will play Abby Arcane in Swamp Thing. Abby Arcane is Swamp Thing’s wife and partner, and niece of the villainous Anton Arcane.

Here’s the official character description for Abby Arcane in Swamp Thing:

Smart and caring, CDC Doctor Abby Arcane’s strong sense of empathy puts her at the center of a horrific life-threatening epidemic in her hometown, where she faces emotional demons from her past… while a chance meeting with scientist Alec Holland takes her into a world of horror and the supernatural, and of the elemental creature known as Swamp Thing.

Swamp Thing is expected to air sometime in 2019, exclusively on DC Universe.
