First Look: Alex Kingston in Arrow
Proving she has more than just one string to her bow Alex Kingston will make her full debut in Arrow – the CW networks attempt to do for the Green Arrow what Smallville did for Superman – on March 20th and KSiteTV has some spoilerific shots of the actress in action.
Following in the footsteps of her fellow Doctor Who star, John Barrowman – who plays Tommy Merlyn’s (Colin Donnell) father, Malcolm, better known to comic fans as ‘Dark Archer’ on the show – Alex will follow her brief appearance as Diana Lance at the end of the previous episode, with her debut in The Huntress Returns.
In DC Comics lore, Dinah was the original Black Canary, the mother of Dinah ‘Laurel’ Lance (Katie Cassidy) and ex-wife of Detective Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne) – who returns to Starling City to make amends with her family and find closure after the tragic death of her other daughter.
Although there have been no solid hints that this is the way the show will go with the character, it’s an intriguing prospect for the actress.
The full set of photos can be seen over at KSiteTV, with the episode itself due to air in America on the 20th March.
