is getting some new blood for its third season, and that starts with Devon Aoki. According to Deadline
, the actress and model has joined the cast of Arrow
season 3 in a major recurring role.
Aoki will play Tatsu Yamashiro, a katana-wielding martial arts expert who served as a mentor to Oliver Queen during his time in Hong Kong. Much like Shado, she will be featured in the show's flashbacks, which moved off the island at the end of season 2.
This marks Aoki's first ever TV role. Since becoming an actress, she has appeared in films like 2 Fast 2 Furious
and Sin City
, always as a tough bad-ass.
However, she won't be the first member of her family to appear on the CW superhero drama. Her brother, Steve Aoki, appeared as himself back in season 1, serving as a guest DJ at Oliver's night club Verdant.Arrow
returns for season 3 on Wednesday, October 8 at 8pm on the CW.(Image courtesy of WENN)
