Dichen is reprising her role of Roulette on Supergirl! Check out the trailer below!
Dichen Lachman made her series debut as Roulette in last night’s Season 2, episode 4 of “Supergirl.” While the episode was airing, Lachman took time to answer some fan questions on Twitter, revealing some behind-the-scenes details about her villainous role.
In a tweet, Lachman shared how long it took for the makeup team to make her character’s iconic dragon tattoo. “The tattoos took about 4 hours. It was a bit of a puzzle,” the 34-year-old actress wrote.
When asked “which took longer in hair/MU, the tattoos on #Supergirl or the grounder get-up on #The100,” the Nepali-born actress answered: “#SupergirlCW took longer. But only sometimes because I slept with those transfers.”
A lot of “Supergirl” fans love Lachman’s performance of Roulette, and it’s something that the actress is thankful for. “Hi everyone. Thanks for watching ‘Supergirl’ tonight and for all the amazing tweets,” Lachman said a in video she shared on Instagram.
Lachman also congratulated “Supergirl” writers Paula Yoo and Eric Carrasco for writing an “amazing episode.”
When Lachman’s casting was confirmed last September, a fan tweeted the actress that she would like to see Roulette “alive” at the end of the episode, to which Lachman replied: “That would be nice.”
Fortunately for Roulette fans, that’s actually what happened in last night’s episode, entitled “Survivors.” Although Roulette was arrested for running an underground alien fight club, an order from the higher-ups made the National City Police Department release the villainess from their custody, which means that viewers might have not seen the last of her yet.
Dichen Lachman has confirmed that she will be appearing as DC Comics villain Roulette in Season 2 of “Supergirl.”
In a video clip she shared on Instagram, Lachman thanked her fans for all the excitement surrounding her casting and talked a little bit about her experience in filming the CW series.
“I just want to thank everybody for all the excitement about me appearing on ‘Supergirl’ as Roulette,” the 34-year-old Nepali-born Australian actress said. “The cast and crew are working so hard and there are such incredible people. I’m really excited to be on the show, and I can’t wait for you to see it.”
On Twitter, Lachman revealed why joining the cast of “Supergirl” was pretty surreal for her.
“When I was a little girl in Kathmandu I used to daydream about being Supergirl,” she tweeted. “[It’s] one of the few movies we had on VHS. Watched it many times.”
In a follow-up tweet, Lachman added: “‘Supergirl,’ ‘Superman’ and ‘Police Academy’ were the 3 tapes we had and we watched them over and over again when we had electricity.”
In the comics, Roulette, also known as Veronica Sinclair, is an enemy to the Justice Society. She runs a gambling establishment for supervillains where they can bet on different events like captive superhero death-matches. Rather than getting her own hands dirty, she is more of a calculating business-minded character who manipulates others for profit. Created by Geoff Johns and Rags Morales, Roulette first appeared in 2001’s “JSA Secret Files and Origins” #2.
On CW’s “Supergirl,” on the other hand, Roulette runs an underground alien fight club in National City and is eager to get the Girl of Steel in the ring, Comicbook.com reported.
According to TVLine, Lachman — whose recent TV acting credits include “The Last Ship,” “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. “ and “The 100,” among many others — will appear in “Supergirl” Season 2, Episode 4.

“Supergirl” has just added a female villain for Season 2.
YVRShoots spotted “The Last Ship” actress Dichen Lachman on the set of The CW series on Tuesday night, Sept 13. As seen in the photos obtained by the website, the 34-year-old actress was wearing a long red dress with a side split that shows her leg snake tattoo. While it hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, comic book fans are pretty sure that Lachman is playing the DC Comics villain Roulette.
According to YVRShoots, the sequence filmed that night involved Science Police detective Maggie Sawyer (Floriana Lima) escorting Lachman’s character and meeting up with Kara’s (Melissa Benoist) adoptive sister Alex (Chyler Leigh). The context of the scene is unclear, but it seems that Maggie is turning over Roulette to the D.E.O. (Department of Extra-Terrestrial Operations), where Alex works.
