Chasing Life may be D.O.A. but the star of ABC Family's lovely cancer drama, Italia Ricci, has found a new place to lay her gorgeous head. It was just announced that Ricci (aka, Robbie Amell's fiancée, aka the luckiest girl alive) is set to recur on the CBS series as Siobhan Smythe, whom DC Comics fans will recognize as the Silver Banshee.

"We are so excited to be working with Italia," says executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. "We've been a fan of her work for years and we cannot wait to see her take on this iconic comic book role."

Ricci's first appearance is slated for the season's 14th episode, airing sometime in 2016.
