CW's 'Arrow' Producers Seeking Actress To Play 'Shado'
Reported by Outsiders - 2012.11.30
Zap2It is reporting that Arrow producers are trying to decide on the perfect actress to play the character of Shado.
In the comics, Shado is a vengeful archer and martial artist who's purpose is to kill Americans who had disgraced her father and caused shame to fall on her family. She was against odds with Arrow until she helped Oliver take down a villain who had captured Laurel. They ended up working together to take down several more formidable villains.
Producers will change the character and give her a new, unexpected twist when she appears next year in the episode titled "The Odyssey." She will be the beautiful young daughter of Yao Fei, the expert archer and mentor who saved Oliver's life on the island of Lian Yu. Her introduction will give us a better understanding of her Father's history and she will be covered in the familiar dragon tattoo.
