Summer Glau Joins Arrow TV Series Season 2
Arrow is adding a familiar face to genre fans for Season 2, as Summer Glau joins the hit CW series in a new recurring role. THR reports that Glau, known for series like Firefly and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, will play Isabel Rochev, introduced as the “vp acquisitions at Stellmoor International, a company looking to take over Queen Consolidated.”
Isabel is described as "enigmatically beautiful" and "dangerous.” Fans of the Green Arrow comic books may recall Isabel, who often wore a mask, introduced in Green Arrow in 2010, where she claimed to have some pretty major connections to Oliver’s father, Robert Queen.
Glau will make her debut in the Arrow: Season 2 premiere. Her casting is somewhat amusing, given many fans have speculated she would inevitably be cast by frequent collaborator Joss Whedon in his new Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. series – but it looks like DC got her first!
