Talia Al Ghul To Join Arrow As A Recurring Character

Arrow will feature DC Comics villain Talia Al Ghul as a supporting character in the CW superhero drama.

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.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
