CW’s ARROW Casts DC Comics’ The Huntress

The CW’s Arrow announced the arrival of another character this week and it’s a big one. Not only is it a classic DC Comics character, but Stephen Amell’s hero is getting a possible love interest!

Intended for a multi-episode arc in the highly anticipated fall action series, The Huntress will be played by Australian actress Jessica De Gouw.

The Huntress, introduced in 1947, is the star of her own series and like so many other superheroes, there’s been a few different takes on her storylines. Arrow will have a modern-day version who goes by the name of Helena Bertinelli, the daughter of a mafia boss who vows revenge after her family is murdered.

The official character description: “Helena is a potential love interest for Oliver Queen; a fellow vigilante, set on destroying her father’s organized crime empire. But Helena’s blind pursuit of revenge will put her on a collision course with the Arrow.”

Sources say for viewers to expect The Huntress to show up around episode six.






Arrow also acquired John Barrowman for an undisclosed role. While the Huntress is now confirmed, rumors are also floating about including Batman and Firestorm on the show.

Arrow premieres Wednesday, October 10th.
