If you haven’t heard, Bex Taylor-Klaus, who’s big TV series debut was playing a lesbian named Bullett in AMC’s series The Killing, has signed on to play the character Sin in the 2nd season of Arrow.
Sin, who first appeared in a 1999 issue of the Birds of Prey series, is described as a wayward youth who is befriended by the Black Canary and has a connection with fellow street urchin, Roy Harper (Colton Haynes).
Bex’s character will appear in the 3rd and 4th episodes this coming season. wasn’t the only name announced for the anticipated sophomore season, as they did announce several of them during the Arrow panel at this year’s Comic-Con International:
Brother Blood (Kevin Alejandro), Black Canary and Bronze Tiger (Michael Jai White). A sizzle reel featured a new actress playing Black Canary, a departure from the trajectory prescribed in the comic books for Katie Cassidy‘s Laurel Lance — but executive producer Andrew Kreisberg indicated it was by design.
“The first Green Arrow we saw wasn’t Oliver; chronologically, it was Yao Fei,” he said at the time. “The first Deathstroke we saw wasn’t Slade Wilson; the first Merlyn the archer we saw wasn’t his father, it was Tommy.”
Caity Lotz will be the playing the Black Canary, at least in the beginning, as that’s what it seems the producers of the show are teasing. This should definitely keep the fans on their toes.
