Lexa Doig Joins Arrow as Talia Al Ghul

Arrow is having its 5th season on The CW and it would only be fair to say that the show is becoming something better, at least better than the two previous seasons. We have all seen Oliver Queen in many adventures until now and some them involved the Al Ghul family.

We have met Ra’s al Ghul and Nyssa al Ghul preivously in the show but now another member of that family is joining the cast. According to CBR, Lexa Doig (Continuum) has been cast as Talia al Ghul, the half sister of Nyssa al Ghul. She will first appear in episode 10 of the fifth season. Talia is “an elite warrior who does not pick sides but rather creates her own” according to The CW’s official description.

Talia al Ghul has appeared on TV once before as a child (Milli Wilkinson played her) in a Legends of Tomorrow episode titled “Left Behind”.

For the uninformed, Talia al Ghul is a character that has been appearing in the comics since 1971 and she was once the lover of Batman, had a child with him named Damian Wayne who later became Robin.
