Maisie Richardson-Sellers (born 2 March 1992[citation needed]) is an English actress. She is known for her recurring role as Rebekah Mikaelson/Eva Sinclair in the second season of the CW series The Originals, and for her starring roles as Michal the daughter of King Saul of Israel in the 2016 ABC Biblical television series Of Kings and Prophets and as Amaya on the CW television superhero series Legends of Tomorrow.

Life[edit]

Coming from a family of stage actors, Richardson-Sellers started acting from a young age.[citation needed] In 2013, Richardson-Sellers graduated, with degrees in Archaeology and Anthropology, from University of Oxford, where she participated in and directed several plays, including Mephisto, Chatroom, and There Will Be Red.[citation needed]

Career[edit]

After graduating university, she started auditioning and landed her very first role in the highly anticipated Star Wars sequel Star Wars: The Force Awakens,[1][2] in the cameo role of Korr Sella.[3]

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.[4] 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.”[5]

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.[6] 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.[7]
