SPARTACUS Actress Katrina Law Cast As Nyssa Al Ghul In ARROW
The daughter of Ra’s al Ghul will be coming to Arrow…but it’s not the most famous al Ghul girl. Ra’s al Ghul‘s other daughter, Nysaa, will be coming to Starling City to take on The Canary. TV Guide reports that Spartacus alum Katrina Law will be taking on the role this season.
Law will play the powerful member of the League of Assassins who comes to Starling City after being tasked with the job of tracking down The Canary (Caity Lotz). Sara Lance has been doing a decent job of keeping the League of Assassins at bay, with the help of Oliver, but now she’s going to have a villain that will really give her a run for her money. Law will make her debut in episode 13, aptly titled Heir to the Demon. In the comics Nyssa al Ghul is revealed as the love child of a women Ra’s met while traveling through Russia. There’s speculation that Summer Glau‘s character (Isabel Rochev) is actually Talia, but I don’t really buy into it.
This marks the third Spartacus alum to join up with Arrow. Manu Bennett had a big role in the series and Cynthia Addai-Robinson, who played Naevia, recently joined the show as Amanda Waller. The show’s producers must be fans of both Doctor Who (John Barrowman, Alex Kingston) and Spartacus. It will be interesting to see who they grab next. What do you think about Law taking on the role of Nyssa?
