The White Canary on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will be getting a new love interest according to a report from EW. Ali Liebert has been cast on the series to play a potential love interest for the Sara Lance, who is played by Caity Lotz.

Liebert previously appeared on both Kyle XY and Fringe, and she will play Lindsay Carlisle on DC's Legends of Tomorrow. According to the EW description, Carlisle is "a soft-spoken, intelligent lady who is the ideal picture of 1950s womanhood. Although she might seem at home amongst the strict morals of the time, she harbors a dark secret: she’s a lesbian. Confused and scared, it seems she is doomed to suffer alone in a backwards time … until she falls for a girl from the future, Sara Lance."

In the episode that Carlisle is introduced in, Sara Lance is trapped out of time and place in 1958 ‘Pleasantville, America’. Executive producer Phil Klemmer said, "After Sara was brought back from the dead on Arrow, she hasn’t been herself — she’s been consumed by a quest for bloodshed and incapable of having romantic feelings for anyone. The strict social norms of the fifties makes this the last place Sara Lance would ever expect to find love with a young, closeted nurse, but that’s how love works — it finds you.”

As Arrow fans know, Sara was previously in relationships with both Oliver Queen and Nyssa al Ghul.

Legends of Tomorrow debuts on January 21, 2016.
