Anne Heche (Superman: Doomsday) will join the cast of The Legend of Korra starting this Friday in an episode called "The Metal Clan". The episode will be the second of two episodes from Book Three airing that night (8:30 pm ET/PT). The episode will have Korra and the gang finding their way to the metal city of Zaofu.
Heche will voice Suiyin Beifong (45 years old), daughter Toph Beifong and half sister to Chief Lin Beifong. Suiyin is a powerful metalbender and the leader of the city of Zaofu which she "built from the ground up". She is described as talented and skillful, one of these being a dancer. Family is important to the character, though she does have a "strained" relationship with her sister. She is married with five children.
The Legend of Korra airs on Nickelodeon on Fridays at 8:00 pm ET/7:00 pm CT.
