Arrow producers announced they've cast the child of Ra's al Ghul, but it's not the child everyone is expecting. TV Guide announced that Sparticus actress Katrina Law will be portraying Nyssa al Ghul in the thirteenth episode of the season, which will be titled "Heir to the Demon". Law also made appeared on Legend of the Seeker as a Mord Sith.
For those who don't know who Nyssa is, here's a brief description, courtesy of the Arrow Annotations for "League of Assassins":
Ra's has a second daughter named Nyssa, who was born in 19th century Russia. While Nyssa briefly joined the League of Assassins, she left the organization sometime before World War II. She and her family were captured by the Nazis and sent to a concentration camp, which leads to her seeking out revenge against Ra's and his family. In Batman: Death of the Maidens, she captures and brainwashes Talia, and almost succeeds in assassinating Superman in order to drive the entire world into mourning. While Batman stops her, she later kills Ra's and becomes the head of the League of Assassins. Nyssa is later killed during a coup of the League by Cassandra Cain.
So what are your thoughts about the casting? Glad it's not Talia? Disappointed?
