Sackhoff will play Amunet Black, aka Blacksmith, a Rogue who runs an underground marketplace for supervillains. If you're a bad guy and you need to buy, sell or store contraband, she's your girl. She's well-connected and a natural leader who, like her name suggests, is fiery and strong. Meaning, she's going to cause a lot of trouble for Barry (Grant Gustin).
Sackhoff is the latest of a number of Battlestar Galactica alumni to show up in the Arrowverse. Aaron Douglas has appeared on The Flash, while James Callis, Tahmoh Penikett, and Rekha Sharma have appeared on Arrow.
The Flash returns Tuesday, Oct. 10 at 8/7c on The CW.
