Teagan Croft landed the role of the beloved Teen Titans character Raven in the new Titans series a couple of weeks ago, but now another beloved Titan has been cast! Deadline revealed today that 24: Legacy actress Anna Diop has landed the role of Starfire, one of the founding members of the beloved group in the DC Universe mythology! Here is how Koriand’r is described on the show:
“Starfire (aka Koriand’r) is an alien princess from a warrior planet who seeks asylum on Earth. A no-nonsense, take-no-prisoners stranger on our world, she has the ability to shoot energy bolts and fly. Searching for her place on Earth, she’ll come into contact with the Titans.”
