Arrow just went back into production with its first scenes shot and the team doing table read throughs and now we’re hearing of some more casting for the season. We’ve had a lot of characters and actors upped to regulars for the second season and a new outright addition is that of Summer Glau of Firefly and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles fame. The acterss is taking on the role of Isabel Rochev, the “enigmatically beautiful” and “dangerous” vice president of acquisitions at Stellmoor International, a company looking to take over Queen Consolidated. She will first appear in the premiere which is on October 9th.
According to THR, “On Arrow, not much is known of Isabel, except as part of a list of names in Robert Queen’s book of corrupt and powerful people in Starling City. (In the DC Comics universe, the villainous Isabel — who appears in several Green Arrow issues — rose from being a slave to running Queen Industries, with the desire to return the company back to its former glory.)”
