Byers will play Reeva Payge, also known as the Hellfire Club’s Black Queen. This small-screen take on the villain is described as:
“a smart, charming, authoritative, elegant, beautiful woman who is ruthless in her efforts to fight for her people. She leads an elite band of followers and has a soft spot for her new recruits, but is still capable of extreme violence in defence of her vision.”
Payge will align herself with Emma Dumont’s Polaris, Percy Hynes White’s Andy Strucker and the Frost sisters played by Skyler Samuels.
