British actress Georgina Campbell (“After Hours,” “Broadchurch,” “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword”) has scored the female lead of Lyta Zod in Syfy’s upcoming Superman prequel pilot “Krypton”.
Based on the DC Comics characters, the series is set two generations before the destruction of Superman’s home planet. The action follows Kal-El’s grandfather Seg-El. With the House of El ostracized and shamed, he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos.
Campbell’s Lyta Zod is a cadet in Krypton’s military caste and the daughter of General Alura Zod. Lyta has been having a clandestine, forbidden romance with Seg-El.
David S. Goyer created the series and will executive produce with Damian Kindler for Warner Bros. Television and Phantom Four. Colm McCarthy will direct the pilot from a story and teleplay by Goyer & Ian Goldberg.
