Esperanza “Spooner” Cruz on “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”


Lisseth Chavez stars in The CW series “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” as Esperanza “Spooner” Cruz. Spooner is a straight shootin’ (figuratively and literally) Texan who, thanks to the Legends, discovered she wasn’t kidnapped by aliens but is an accidental time traveler instead. Spooner has a whole new perspective on life now having learned that 1925 is her home time. Now she’ll embrace her spot on the team, going to great lengths to save the Legends from impending doom.

Chavez has appeared in numerous television series and commercials over the years. She was recently a series regular on “Chicago P.D.” as fearless undercover cop Vanessa Rojas, and she also appeared “Chicago Med” and “Chicago Fire” during their crossover episode. Chavez also had a recurring role on “Station 19.” Other television credits include “The Fosters,” where she played Ximena Sinfuego - an outspoken & culturally conscious badass on a mission, “The OA,” “Murder in the First,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” and “S.W.A.T,” to name a few.

She enjoys doing arts and crafts and making anything from scratch. Chavez is always up for a challenge and likes to stay busy.

When not filming, Chavez resides in Los Angeles.
