Katie Cassidy Joins Green Arrow TV Show As Black Canary


The former Supernatural co-star is set to pull on her fishnets as Black Canary in CW’s Green Arrow Pilot ‘Arrow’.

Cassidy will play Laurel, a young legal clinic attorney who shares a romantic past with Oliver. (In the comics, the character, Dinah “Laurel” Lance, has a superhero alter ego, Black Canary.) In Arrow, Cassidy joins Amell and Susanna Thompson, who was cast yesterday as Oliver’s mother, Moira Queen.

So far I’ve been liking the casting for this show as I’ve seen these guys in other shows and they’ve been pretty solid. I get the feeling that this is going to be very different to the portrayal Green Arrow we saw in Smallville and that’s not necessarily a bad thing if they are going to distance themselves from fans who wanted to see Justin Hartley reprise the role.

Those of you who watch Supernatural will remember Katie as playing Ruby in the show. For those of you who don’t here’s a taste of Katie in action. Warning as their spoilers if you’ve not watched Supernatural.
