In what I think is a perfect bit of casting, The Boys season 3 landed The Walking Dead alum Laurie Holden to play Payback member Crimson Countess. And confirming just how spot-on it was, Holden has shared a first look at herself in costume. Not only is it comic book accurate, so is her sneer.
Time for some Payback!
I can’t wait for the world to see Crimson Countess in action. Tune in to VNN on Sunday for a preview. #TheBoysTV #PrimeVideo @TheBoysTV @FANologyPV pic.twitter.com/3AR48Uf03R

In the comics, Crimson Countess has a variety of heat-related powers, and it was teased she had a relationship with the villain Stormfront, who we saw played in season 2 by Aya Cash. Whether they find a way to include that aspect of her story remains to be seen.
Also joining the cast this season are Boondock Saints actor Sean Patrick Flanery, Nick Wechsler, and Miles Gaston Villanueva as Gunpowder, Blue Hawk and Supersonic, respectively.
Hopefully this means a trailer for The Boys next season will arrive soon.
