February 5th’s episode of Arrow, “Heir to the Demon”, will see the debut of Nyssa al Ghul on the hit CW series. Now, via IGN, we have our first photos of the daughter of Ra’s al Ghul in action. The thirteenth episode of the season will see Nyssa (played by Spartacus‘ Katrina Law) journey to Starling City, as she seeks to bring Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) back to the League of Assassins. Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg had this to say about Arrow‘s version of Nyssa, as well as casting Law in the role. “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.” He then calls the character “the next wave of the League of Assassins that comes to Starling City. But she has some interesting secrets as well…” Check out the images below, and stay tuned for more details as we have them.
