The first image of Seth Gabelas The Count in an upcoming episode of Arrow, has appeared in TV Guide.
His character is based on the DC character Count Vertigo, but in the series the name Vertigo will belong to a new drug that begins to make the rounds in Starling City.
“The fun thing about The Count is he’s actually a businessman,” said executive producer Marc Guggenheim. “He’s got a little bit of a sociopathic streak in him, for sure, but he sees himself as an entrepreneur, as creating not drugs, but art.
“He compares his drug to performing a social service and to a fine wine, so he has a very skewed view of what it is that he does. At the same time, we know that he’s not only sociopathic, but he’s very sadistic as well.”
Gabel will make his debut as The Count in two weeks in an episode titled ‘Vertigo’.
