Today has seen a few casting announcements for Arrow‘s fourth season. Actor Parker Young will play a new potential love interest for Thea, while Rutina Wesley has booked a multi-episode arc as…somebody. Now, Entertainment Weekly has revealed the introduction of another new character this season.
According to EW, iZombie and Supernatural actress Elysia Rotaru as a new love interest for Oliver Queen. But before Olicity fans freak out, Rotaru’s character – who is currently unnamed – will recur throughout the flashback sequences. So, she is a love interest of Ollie’s in the past, while in the present, he is still with Felicity.
Producer Marc Guggenheim said this about the contract. “Oliver is gonna have a love interest in the past that will serve as a parallel or potentially a contrast to his love affair with Felicity in the present.” As for what else to expect from Arrow‘s flashbacks this season, Oliver will be visiting Coast City. He will also be encountering DC villain Baron Reiter.
Stay tuned for more news as we have it. Arrow returns to The CW on October 7th.
