White Canary to Have a Lady Love Interest on Legends of Tomorrow
Yes, you have my attention.
This sounds interesting! According to Entertainment Weekly, Fringe alum Ali Liebert will play Lindsay Carlisle, a “potential love interest” to Sara Lance on the upcoming CW series Legends of Tomorrow.
Executive producer Phil Klemmer explains,
At the start of this episode, we find Sara Lance completely out of place, both in time and place, visiting 1958 ‘Pleasantville, America’ — and also out of place emotionally. After Sara was brought back from the dead on Arrow, she hasn’t been herself — she’s been consumed by a quest for bloodshed and incapable of having romantic feelings for anyone. The strict social norms of the fifties makes this the last place Sara Lance would ever expect to find love with a young, closeted nurse, but that’s how love works — it finds you.
Here’s EW’s description of Lindsay Carlisle:
[…] a soft-spoken, intelligent lady who is the ideal picture of 1950s womanhood. Although she might seem at home amongst the strict morals of the time, she harbors a dark secret: she’s a lesbian. Confused and scared, it seems she is doomed to suffer alone in a backwards time … until she falls for a girl from the future, Sara Lance.
My pearls, they are thoroughly clutched.
I was already pretty excited for Legends of Tomorrow thanks to the series’ campy, fun trailers, but now I have even more incentive to watch when the show premieres for its 13-episode-run in January. What do you think, friends? Excited to see what Lindsay’s like? Optimistic about how this representation might pan out?
