As the “Legends of Tomorrow” and their newest recruit Vixen (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) travel through time to save the world from a variety of villains, get ready for a new bromance to take shape.
Ever since Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) dies, leaving Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell) without a best friend, the lack of BFFs on the Waverider has been all too apparent … until now. Vixen, also known by the name Amaya, is making friends — and one particular Legend will make for a very interesting relationship.
“I think [Vixen] has just got one goal: to find Rex’s killer and go back [to her own time]. There’s no ulterior motive. But as she spends more time with them she discovers they’re actually interesting people as well and starts to form bonds with them,” Richardson-Sellers says. “I think instantly her and Sara have a interesting dynamic because they’re both very strong, independent women who exist in a very male world.”
“I really like their vibe together. They’re like two cool chicks,” Caity Lotz, who plays Sara Lance, says. “I see a potential for a true cool friendship, one to rival Cold and Heat Wave — it could be even cooler.”
For Richardson-Sellers, the key to their friendship is how they connect. “What I love about that relationship is it’s not emotional,” she explains. “It’s very much a bromance, if anything. It’s built on respect and equality and they have a fun sort of banter.”
Of course, it’s also built on a mutual admiration for kicking butt. “I just like to see them having fun together, pairing up,” Lotz says.
“Legends of Tomorrow” airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
