Paris had to be heroic when she called out her sister Zoe for not being truthful with Carter on The Bold and the Beautiful. Now, Paris’s portrayer, Diamond White, is taking on the role of a Marvel Comics character in a new animated series.
Diamond White Becomes A Superhero
Watch for Diamond to star in Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur. She will play the character of Lunella Lafayette (AKA Moon Girl) in the highly-anticipated Disney series. Alfre Woodard (Desperate Housewives; Marvel’s Luke Cage) will play Mimi, Lunella’s grandmother.
“I’m a superhero,” Diamond exclaimed on Instagram. As BB viewers recall, the actress joined the half-hour CBS serial last year.
The series is based on the Marvel Comics comic book Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, which follows the adventures of Lunella, a super-genius, and her 10-ton T-Rex, Devil Dinosaur. Lunella accidentally brings Devil Dinosaur into present-day New York City by way of a time vortex. Watch for the pair to work together to protect the city’s Lower East Side from danger.
The character of Moon Girl first appeared in Marvel Comics in November 2015. Lunella possesses a great intellect, earning her the nickname “Moon Girl.” She met Devil Dinosaur after he was sucked into a vortex with the coveted Nightstone. Lunella gave a hiding spot to Devil Dinosaur in her lab that she had built underneath her school.
The cast also includes Libe Barer (Sneaky Pete) as Lunella’s best friend and manager, Casey; Sasheer Zamata (Saturday Night Live) as Lunella’s mom, Adria; Jermaine Fowler (Superior Donuts) as Lunella’s dad, James Jr.; Fred Tatasciore (Marvel’s Avengers Assemble) as Devil Dinosaur; and Gary Anthony Williams (Doc McStuffins) as Lunella’s grandfather, Pops.
Series executive producer Laurence Fishburne (ex-Josh, One Life to Live) will voice the recurring role of The Beyonder, a curious and mischievous trickster. The Bold and the Beautiful airs weekdays on CBS. Check local listings for airtimes.
