Meg Foster, the actress who played Evil-Lyn in the 1987 cult classic Masters of the Universe live-action movie, is returning to Eternia once again. Foster has joined Netflix’s Masters of the Universe: Revolution animated series, taking on the role of Motherboard, a character hinted at in the first season.
In the first series, called Masters of the Universe: Revelations, Motherboard was the figure that Trap-Jaw and Triclops prayed to when we found them years later. The character is described as an “ancient sorceress of technology” that also has ties to another He-Man big bad, Hordak.
“My part in Masters of the Universe more than 35 years ago remains one of my most cherished roles,” Foster said in a statement. “I am both thrilled and honored to come back into the fold to embody a brilliant, all-new villainous character that adds color to the vibrant storytelling that Kevin Smith and Mattel have brought to life for fans around the world.”
Foster joins Chris Wood, the newly-casted Melissa Benoist, Mark Hamill, Stephen Root, and sci-fi icon William Shatner in a still-to-be-announced role.
“It’s not often that original and beloved actors return to their legacy franchises, so we are excited for the opportunity to welcome Meg Foster back to Eternia,” added Fred Soulie, Senior Vice President and General Manager at Mattel Television. “Her presence in the original live-action film left an undeniable impact on fans, so much so that it cemented the film in the pop culture zeitgeist for over 30 years, causing her formidable work as Evil-Lyn to set the stage for Meg to enrapture audiences once again, now as the villainous Motherboard.”
Masters of the Universe: Revolution will premiere on Netflix globally in 2024.
