USA based Zimbabwean actress Tinashe Kajese is part of the “The Suicide Squad” cast, a 2021 film by Warner Bros/DC Entertainment, written and directed by James Gunn. It premiered on the 6th of August in theaters and also on HBO Max streaming platform.

Tinashe Kajese plays the role of Florence "Flo" Crawley, a member of ARGUS and the coordinator of Task Force X's missions. She also acts as a personal aide to Amanda Waller.

In the comics, Flo Crawley was the coordinator of Task Force X's missions, and the first cousin of Amanda Waller. She formed a close friendship with Oracle, who hacked into the computer system of Belle Reve to learn more about the Suicide Squad.

Flo had a crush on the Bronze Tiger, an ally of the Squad, and insisted she be allowed to go on a mission with him in the hopes that she could impress him. Waller forbade it, but when the stranded Lashina offered her a mission to Apokolips, she couldn't refuse and joined her. By the time Flo realized her mistake, she was killed on Apokolips.
