Arrow star Paul Blackthorne, who plays Quentin Lance, gave fans a first look at Rutina Wesley as Liza Warner in the upcoming fourth season of The CW show. The behind-the-scenes photo features Blackthorne, Wesley, and Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen decked out in their respective costumes.
In the comics, Liza Warner is known as Lady Cop, an excellent police officer with an eidetic memory. She was eventually promoted to Chief of Police, and occasionally assisted Ryan Choi as the Atom. In the show, Warner will be part of Star City’s Anti-Vigilante Task Force responsible for arresting members of Team Arrow and their superhero friends. If her badass, confident look in the set photo Blackthorne posted is any indication, she’ll be a formidable opponent for Team Arrow.
Wesley is probably best known for her role as Tara Thornton in True Blood, and has also appeared in several episodes of Hannibal. She’s scheduled to appear in a multi-episode arc of Arrow.
In other Arrow news, Amell let fans know when to expect to see the highly anticipated season 4 trailer:
