NEWS: CW's Arrow Casts Its Huntress

Jessica De Gouw has been added to the cast of CW's upcoming superhero show, Arrow.

Australian De Gouw will play the recurring dual role of Helena Bertinelli and her costumed alter-ego, The Huntress. According to EW,  “Helena is a potential love interest for Oliver Queen; a fellow vigilante, set on destroying her father’s organized crime empire. But Helena’s blind pursuit of revenge will put her on a collision course with the Arrow.”

Like many comicbook characters, the identity of The Huntress has been adopted by a number of  women in the past. Originally a villain, the character was reinvented as the daughter of Earth 2's Batman and Catwoman (a modified version of this genesis was used for the character in the short-lived TV show Birds of Prey) before once more being overhauled post-Crisis as Helena Bertinelli.

Arrow premieres in the US on October 10th.
