First look at Katrina Law as Nyssa al Ghul in Arrow

January 29th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments


Announced back in November, IGN has debuted the first photos of actress Katrina Law as Nyssa al Ghul in the upcoming 13th episode of Arrow titled “Heir to the Demon”.

Executive Producer Andrew Kreiseberg spoke about what fans can expect from Nyssa and how Katrina Law was cast:

“Our Nyssa certainly has shades of Talia. Katrina auditioned for Shado and it actually came down to Katrina and Celina [Jade] and honestly, part of it was just that because we knew she’d have scenes with Slade [played by Manu Bennett], and it just felt like a Spartacus overkill. But she’s somebody that we’ve been a fan of. When this part came up, we saw a lot of people for it, but she certainly is exotic and beautiful and smart and our stunt guys are over the moon, because she can do a lot of her own stunts.Nyssa is the next wave of the League of Assasins that comes to Starling City. But she has some interesting secrets as well…”

“Heir to the Demon” is described as follows:

“As Laurel continues to unravel, Oliver and Lance try to convince Sara (guest star Caity Lotz) to stay in Starling City and finally reunite with Laurel and Dinah (guest star Alex Kingston).  However, Sara’s fellow League of Assassins member, Nyssa (guest star Katrina Law, “Spartacus”), comes to bring Sara back to the fold, but when Sara refuses, Nyssa kidnaps Dinah. Realizing she’s putting her family in danger by staying in town, Sara considers re-joining the league.”

Directed by Wendey Stanzler and written by Jake Coburn, “Heir to the Demon” will air on Wednesday, February 5.
