Spartacus' Katrina Law Cast as Nyssa al Ghul in Arrow
November 19, 2013
If you're caught up on the latest season of "Arrow" this should come as no surprise, but to those just tuning in - more comic book characters are coming to the hit series.
TV Guide reports that "Spartacus" actress Katrina Law has been cast in the role of Nyssa al Ghul, daughter of Ra's al Ghul and half-sister of Talia. In the series, Nyssa will be a member of the League of Assassins where she will make her way to Starling City to face off against Caity Lotz's Black Canary. Law isn't the only former "Spartacus" actor to appear on the series as both Manu Bennett (Slade Wilson) and the recently-added Cynthia Addai-Robinson (Amanda Waller) also appeared on the show.
The new season of "Arrow" has heavily expanded its roster of comic book characters and, in addition to Nyssa al Ghul, includes Summer Glau as Isabel Rochev, Caity Lotz as Black Canary, Michael Jai White as Bronze Tiger, Kevin Alejandro as Sebastian Blood, Bex Taylor-Klaus as Sin, Dylan Neal as Dr. Anthony Ivo and Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash.
"Arrow" airs Wednesdays at 8 P.M. ET/PT on The CW.
