Sonia Braga Joins LUKE CAGE In Influential Role

Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Sonia Braga is the newest addition to LUKE CAGE!

Daredevil‘s Claire Temple will have a new force of nature to contend with when she comes to Luke Cage next year: her own mother, played by Sonia Braga!

According to head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb, says Soledad Temple will give new depth to her daughter, Claire, who is a love interest for Luke Cage.

“A character as strong as Claire needs an equally powerful mother, and with Sonia we found the perfect actress to deliver the stellar performance we needed. In ‘Marvel’s Luke Cage,’ fans will now get a chance to see where Claire got the fire we love her for.”

No word on what episode we’ll first see Soledad in, but Luke Cage has been filming since early fall.

Luke Cage is due to hit sometime in 2016, though an exact date has not been announced.
