Edwina Findley Lands Recurring Role On “Black Lightning”

The Fear The Walking Dead and If Loving You Is Wrong actress has just landed a recurring role on the upcoming CW series Black Lightning.

Findley will play Tori, the younger sister of Tobias Whales.  Though Black Lightning is based on the DC Comics, it will be a stand alone and not be apart of Arrowverse.  For fans of the current DC shows on CW it means no crossovers.

Black Lightning is set to premiere sometime in 2018 and stars Cress Williams as Jefferson Pierce/Black Lightning. After letting go of his vigilante ways, his daughter Jennifer is determined to bring justice to their city.  When she’s recruited by a local gang, he decides to dig in his closet and put on his suit once again.
