Lucy Davis has revealed she reprised her DC Comics role as Etta Candy with a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo in superhero sequel Wonder Woman 1984.

The 47-year-old British star — best known for The Office and Shaun of the Dead — played the secretary to Steve Trevor in the 2017 film, who became a friend to Gal Gadot’s hero.

Davis shared an image on Twitter, revealing she was visible wearing considerable old age make-up as an elderly Etta on a photograph with Diana in the new movie.

The photo shows that Diana and Etta remained friends throughout the secretary’s life, after they met during the First World War.

“It was so good to say hi and catch up with everyone for just one day,” Davis wrote in her caption for the photo.

She joked that she would now use the old age photo on her online dating profile.

Davis’s most recent role was in the Netflix series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, in which she plays Hilda Spellman — one of the witch aunts of the title character.

Netflix cancelled the series earlier this year after two seasons had aired.

Wonder Woman 1984 was released into UK cinemas on 16 December and debuted in the USA on Christmas Day via a combined release in multiplexes and through the HBO Max streaming service.

Critical reviews have been mixed, but Warner Bros is happy enough with the reaction that a third outing for Gal Gadot and director Patty Jenkins has been given the green light.

The current Rotten Tomatoes approval score is 61%, with the site’s critical consensus noting that the movie “struggles with sequel overload, but still offers enough vibrant escapism to satisfy fans of the franchise and its classic central character”.
