Hurley's character is a Marvel supervillain with faerie heritage. In the comics, she can control minds, perform healing, fly, and more. Because she's half-faerie, she can mystically manipulate the environments of both Earth and the astral plane.
Prior to her casting, Hurley's most recent TV role was as Queen Helena on E!'s "The Royals." She has appeared on a variety of other TV shows, including "Gossip Girl," which was created by "Runaways" showrunners Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage. They're reteaming to create more magic.
"Runaways" was renewed for Season 3 in March. Its premiere date has not yet been announced.
