Netflix's GLOW just added some major star power. Thelma & Louise star Geena Davis has joined Season 3 in a recurring role.
Davis will play Sandy Devereaux St. Clair, "the former showgirl turned entertainment director of the Fan-Tan Hotel and Casino." She is set to appear in five of Season 3's 10 episodes. A photo of the character appears below.
In addition to Thelma & Louise, Davis has appeared in Beetlejuice, The Fly, A League of Their Own and The Exorcist. Her past credits also include The Long Kiss Goodnight, Stuart Little, Grey's Anatomy, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power and more.
According to the official Season 3 description,
Season 3 follows the ladies of GLOW as they take the Vegas strip by storm. Now headliners at the Fan-Tan Hotel and Casino, the women quickly realize Sin City is much more grind than glitter. Ever the team cheerleader, Ruth's passion for the show begins to take a backseat to her growingly complicated personal life. Debbie is making headway as a producer, but continues to be consumed with guilt over the distance between her and her son. As their residency wears on, the lines blur between performance and reality, and the cast find themselves struggling with their own identities both in and outside of the ring.
The Netflix original series follows the lives of the ladies who starred in the all-women's wrestling promotion that rose up in the '80s, during the same period that the Hulk Hogan's Rock 'n' Wrestling world of the WWF hit its peak. The first season of GLOW traced their beginnings, as the company grew and developed into a national television series with over-the-top female wrestlers turning in shows that alternated between absurd and emotional. The second season ended with that television show canceled and the company facing an unsure future.
GLOW Season 1 and Season 2 are currently on Netflix. Created by Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, Season 3 arrives on August 9.
