Former WWE Diva Eve Torres was recently announced as playing the super villain Maxima in an upcoming episode of the CBS Supergirl live action TV show.
WWE.COM: How did you get the role of Maxima?
EVE: It came through my representation and it just ended up working out. It was a great match and I was really excited to read about the part. It’s just such a fun family to get into with all the DC Comics TV shows and movies.
WWE.COM: Did you have to audition for the role?
EVE: I actually didn’t. I had worked with co-executive producer Larry Teng on El Rey’s “Matador,” and Maxima was a role that they were looking for an actress that fit a certain type and I just fit that type.
WWE.COM: What can you tell us about Maxima?
EVE: Anyone who reads the comics knows Maxima comes to Earth in search of a mate among the superhero population — specifically Superman. She’s denied by him and she becomes very angry and bitter. We’ll see how that history plays out in the show — every adaptation is a little bit different, but “Supergirl” does a great job with the source material.
Eve makes her debut as Maxima on the April 11th episode of Supergirl, be sure to check it out on CBS.
