Georgina Campbell Cast as Lyta Zod, Female Lead of Krypton

While we’ve known for some time just which characters we’d be seeing on SyFy’s new series, Krypton, Deadline is now reporting the first official casting for the Superman-prequel series.  Deadline is reporting that After Hours actor Georgina Campbell has landed the female lead in the series as Lyta Zod, a character with familial ties to Superman-villain General Zod. Back when character descriptions were released TVLine described the character as follows:

LYTA ZOD | This twentysomething beauty will likely have some familial tie to Superman’s future foe, General Zod, while she herself is a (reluctant) warrior. – TVLine

Deadline further elaborated on the initial casting report for Zod by stating that Campbell’s character will be “a member of Krypton’s military caste and the daughter of a general, Alura Zod. Lyta Zod serves as a cadet — and has also been having a clandestine, forbidden romance with Seg-El (not cast yet)” (Deadline).

Interestingly, assuming comic book canon is followed, the un-cast Seg-El is Superman’s grandfather, and Jor-El’s father. Comic cannon has skated around just who Superman’s grandmother is, could the show tie together the Zod and El family lines; making Superman and General Zod much more than the last sons of Krypton, but family as well?
