Heroes Reborn is adding another face to its growing roster.

Japanese actress Kiki Sukezane has been cast as a series regular on the upcoming NBC event series, TVInsider can confirm exclusively. While details about her role are still being kept under wraps, it’s safe to say Sukezane will be kicking ass based on this YouTube video showcasing her martial arts and samurai sword skills.

Sukezane joins previously confirmed cast members Jack Coleman, Zachary Levi, Robbie Kay, Danika Yarosh, and Judith Shekoni.

Executive produced by Tim Kring, Heroes Reborn is based on the 2006-10 series Heroes about ordinary people possessing extraordinary powers. The 13-episode event series is expected to premiere later this year.
