Next week’s installment of Arrow, titled “The Magician,” will feature a higher than average quotient of the al Ghul family. Not only is it the long-percolating debut of actor Matt Nable as Ra’s al Ghul, it’s also the return of Katrina Law as that character’s daughter, Nyssa al Ghul.
Law debuted as Nyssa in season two’s “Heir to the Demon,” which aired this past February. In the show, Nyssa is a member of the League of Assassins that has a romantic past with Sara Lance (Caity Lotz). Given the major developments early this fall in the show’s third season, there’s plenty for Nyssa to confront.
Written by Wendy Mericle & executive producer Marc Guggenheim and directed by John Behring, “The Magician” — the 50th overall episode of “Arrow” — is set to air 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 29 on The CW.
Variety Radio Online was invited to join the DragonCon press room interview with Paul Blackthorne, Caity Lotz, and Katrina Law.

Hey, folks! Here’s my video to say THANK YOU for all the hard work you guys did in the “What if Katrina was Wonder Woman” photo contest we had last week! I also answered the three questions asked by Cah Del Santos!
Now that’s how you make an entrance!
Fanboys everywhere, prepare to geek out hard-core, because we’ve got your exclusive first look at Spartacus alum Katrina Law in action as Nyssa al Ghul on Arrow. And. It. Is. Awesome.
Nyssa, of course, is the dangerous Ra’s al Ghul’s (the leader of the League of Assassins) equally-as-dangerous daughter, who is sent to Starling City to bring Sara (Caity Lotz), the Black Canary, back into the killer organization’s fold.
We’ve got an exclusive clip from Wednesday’s all-new episode, “Heir to the Demon,” which proves just how lethal Nyssa is. Oliver (Stephen Amell), you’ll definitely have your work cut out for you with this one!
Of the formidable new villain, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg teases, “Second to [Ra’s al Ghul], she’s one of the most important figures in the League. They sent their first round of minions to come for Sara and that didn’t go so well for them, so now they’re bringing out the big guns. The way Nyssa comes into the story is in a far more provocative and surprising way than the last round.”
And while Law performed most of her own stunts as Nyssa, including the entire airport sequence featured in the clip above, she admits that the character’s precision when it comes to fighting due to her rigid training made her a bit nervous.
“She is precision and precise and everything she does has a purpose and an intent,” she explains. “So I tried to make sure my movements were sharp—that was the biggest stress.”
Though Ra’s, who has yet to appear on Arrow, is a well-known character to DC Comics fans, Nyssa is a bit more of a mystery, only appearing in a few comics, a fact Law enjoys. “I love it. I love the fact that she hasn’t been in any movie and the interpretation is left wide open between the writers and myself with what we want to do with even everything down to how she looks and her costume. Everything about her is just wide open,” she says.
And now that we’re meeting his daughter, could viewers finally see Ra’s pay a visit to Starling City soon? Executive producer Marc Guggenheim simply says, “We really can’t comment on when on if you’ll see Ra’s.”
Fresh, progressive and sometimes even quirky. Interweaving vocals and diverse rythms help to tell stories of hope, fear, disapointment and love.
They’re a little bit country. They’re a little bit Rock-n-Roll. Imagine if Fleetwood Mac came out NOW and decided to do a country album… that’ll give you an idea of what their music is all about.
