Actress Carly Pope (The Tomorrow People, Popular) will be joining the CW’s hit show Arrow for its fifth season.
She will be playing a character by the name Susan Williams, one comic book fans might recognize. Williams is a reporter from Coast City, who is engaged to Jim Jordan, brother of Hal Jordan/Green Lantern. This is interesting, as Green Lantern has also been rumored to debut on Legends Of Tomorrow, which is also set in the ‘Arrowverse’.
According to her character description, Mrs. Williams is “looking to make a name for herself” as a reporter, and what better person is there to target than Oliver Queen?
As for new characters, Williams joins two new vigilantes who go by the code names Artemis and Wild Dog, as well as a new detective played by Tyler Ritter.
Arrow season five is set to return October 5, on the CW.
