Summer Glau fans gather ‘round, because this one’s for you! The CW’s popular hit series ‘Arrow’ has targeted the “geek goddess” for the highly-anticipated second season.
Glau - widely known and praised for her roles in ‘The Sarah Connor Chronicles,’ ‘Firefly’ and ‘Dollhouse’ - will portray Isabel Rochev, the stunning, yet dangerous Vice President of Acquisitions for Stellmoor International, a company looking to take over Queen Consolidation.
It looks like Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and his family are going to have another villain to battle. No surprise there! Isabel is a direct adversary to Ollie, and you might recall seeing her name pop up on Robert Queen’s “list” - at least fans with great memories or fantastic eyesight do.
DC Comics fans are surely anxious to see how Isabel will be portrayed. In the original comic book series, Isabel actually fell in love with Robert Queen, after he visited her Siberian village. After Robert’s death, Isabel was determined to make something of herself and became the CEO of Queen Industries, corrupted the city and made it her mission to kill Robert’s heir aka Oliver.
No news if the hit series will include any plot points from the comic books, but the show has done so well that it surely won’t disappoint fans.
Most recently, Glau has appeared on ‘Alpha’s,’ ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and ‘Hawaii Five-0.’
The second season is set to premiere Wednesday, Oct. 9. Are you excited to see Glau battle it out with Oliver Queen?
