According to Deadline Hollywood, Ramona Young is joining the cast of DC’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW this upcoming season. Young, who was recently in BLOCKERS and SANTA CLARITA DIET, is set as a series regular in the role of Alaska Yu, and Tom Wilson (THE INFORMANT) will recur as Hank’s (Nick Zano) father, Hank Heywood. The castings were announced during the show’s panel Saturday afternoon at San Diego Comic-Con.
More from Deadline Hollywood:
Young’s Alaska Yu is a typical twentysomething easily swept up by romantic notions and fantasy novels, and she’s something of an expert in the world of the magical creatures that the Legends encounter in season four. In the company of the Legends, she soon learns to get her head out of the clouds to become a kickass superhero.
With a lifetime in the military and Dept. of Defense, Hank (Wilson) is part of a long line of Heywoods to serve the country. Charming and charismatic, he’s left big shoes for Nate to fill — and it doesn’t help that Nate can’t tell him he’s secretly a Legend!
They join previously announced John Constantine (Matt Ryan), Ava Sharpe (Jes Macallan) and Nora Darhk (Courtney Ford), who will all appear in season four.
DC’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW returns for season four on Monday, October 22 on The CW.
