Maisie Richardson-Sellers

After graduating university, Maisie Richardson-Sellers started auditioning and landed her very first role in the highly anticipated Star Wars sequel Star Wars: The Force Awakens, in the cameo role of Korr Sella.

After wrapping filming for her The Force Awakens role, Richardson-Sellers booked her second role as Rebekah Mikaelson in the CW series The Originals in 2014, where the character of Rebekah inhabits a different body after a spell gone wrong. Executive Producer Michael Narducci described her performance as having "an incredibly strong sparkle” and “there’s a great beauty – not only with physical beauty but there’s a great inner beauty – that comes up in her performance. There’s also just this incredible strength."

In early March 2015, it was announced that Richardson-Sellers would play a starring role in Of Kings and Prophets, an ABC drama series that would be filmed in South Africa. In June 2016, it was reported that Richardson-Sellers would be playing Amaya Jiwe/Vixen on the second season of the CW series Legends of Tomorrow, who is the grandmother of the titular character in the CW Seed animated series Vixen.
