Following the casting of Stephen Amell as Green Arrow, Katie Cassidy as Laurel and Susanna Thompson as Moira Queen, Deadline reports that Willa Holland (“Gossip Girl,” “The O.C.”) has been cast in The CW’s “Arrow” as well.
Holland will play Thea Queen, Oliver’s celebutante younger sister who’s testing the boundaries of acceptable behavior.
The pilot is about a 27-year-old reformed bad boy, who after having spent five years shipwrecked on a tiny, brutally dangerous island in the South China Sea, returns to town a different man. Or to be more specific, a tortured, thoughtful master of the bow with a ferocious determination to make a difference.
David Nutter is directing the pilot, written/executive produced by Andrew Kreisberg, Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim.
