'Ray Donovan' Star Paula Malcolmson Joins Syfy's Superman Prequel 'Krypton'

Paula Malcomson (Ray Donovan) will also be appearing in the "pivotal guest-starring role" of Charys, matriarch of the House of El. Charys is the obscure character played by actress Paula Malcomson, while Blake Ritson will be playing Brainiac. Charys, who was played by a different actress in the original pilot, helps her son Seg as he tries to figure his way around Kandor City, their home on Krypton which is now being torn apart by oppression and revolt. It is set to premiere in 2018. The site describes Krypton's version of Brainiac as "a parasitic, hyper-advanced alien android of huge intelligence". Previously, Shaun Sipos was cast as space-based hero Adam Strange, while another interesting character we were told to expect was Brainiac, a major foe of the Man of Steel's in the comics.

Syfy's Krypton, the much-anticipated Superman prequel set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel's home planet, will follow Superman's grandfather-whose House of El was ostracized and shamed-as he fights to redeem his family's honor and save his beloved world from chaos.

"Krypton" is produced by Warner Horizon Television.


In addition to Cuffe, the show also stars Georgina Campbell, Elliot Cowan, Ann Ogbomo, Rasmus Hardiker, Wallis Day, Aaron Pierre and Ian McElhinney. She is repped by UTA and Troika.

Now, Deadline is reporting that Krypton has found someone to play the villain: Blake Ritson, most known for his role on Starz' Da Vinci's Demons. He's repped by Curtis Brown, ICM Partners and Authentic Talent and Literary Management.
