Talia Al Ghul To Join Arrow As A Recurring Character
Set to play the alluring assassin is Lexa Doig, best known for her roles on Continuum and Stargate SG-1. Doig will portray Al Ghul in several episodes this season, with her first appearance slated for December or January when the tenth episode “Who Are You?” airs. Her role is reported to be very significant to the show’s plot:
Talia is the latest member of the al Ghul family to appear on the CW show; her half-sister Nyssa al Ghul (Katrina Law) played a major part in “Arrow” seasons two through four, and their father Ra’s al Ghul (Matt Nable) was a major villain in season three of the show. The upcoming “Arrow” episode will mark Talia’s big debut in the CW’s Arrowverse of shows; she was previously seen as a child in an episode of the time-hopping “Legends of Tomorrow” that was set years in the past. The description provided by the CW calls Talia “an elite warrior who doesn’t pick sides but rather creates her own.”
The better-known daughter of Ra’s al Ghul, Talia al Ghul debuted in “Detective Comics” #411 in 1971. She initially served as a love interest for Batman, with most of her villainous acts coming at the request of her father Ra’s al Ghul.
