Amazon’s The Boys has added a big name to its upcoming third season. According to Variety, The Walking Dead star Laurie Holden has been cast as the Crimson Countess.
A member of Payback, Crimson Countess, was an ally of Soldier Boy and a skilled heroine that served in World War II. The original version of the character, Delilah Petrov, was a young Russian girl who was gifted powers through Compound V. After being injected with the serum she found she had powers similar to that of Marvel’s Scarlet Witch. There was also a second Crimson Countess that appeared later with similar abilities to the original.
Holden joins recently announced cast members Sean Patrick Flanery as Gunpowder, Miles Gaston Villanueva as Supersonic, and Nick Wechsler as Blue Hawk. She is best known for her role in AMC’s The Walking Dead and her appearances in The Americans, The X-Files, and more.
