Sorry for posting this just now, there are a few bits of Katrina’s return as Nyssa in this two-minute promo for the second half of the fourth season of Arrow.
It’s hard not to fall in love with Katrina Law. The stunning brunette, who you’ll recognize from shows like Arrow and Spartacus: Blood and Sand, loves getting her hands dirty with different roles.
“Fortunately in my career, I’ve been lucky enough to bounce back and forth between different genres and I wouldn’t have it any other way,” she told Maxim. “As much as I love kicking and punching people in the face and the angst of unrequited love, I do love being goofy and running around making people laugh and getting my man or woman at the end of the day.”
While the New Jersey native may enjoy comedy every now and then, it’s her role as DC Comics legend Nyssa al Ghul that has everybody watching. The independent female warrior born into a league of assassins has been prominently featured since season two of CW’s Arrow, providing Law with a run of storylines that have shifted her from outright menace to fan favorite anti-hero. Plus, as someone who plays by her own rules, the actress has been able to put her years of dance training (and her blackbelt in taekwondo) to good use.
“It all plays heavily into the stunts that I do,” she told Maxim. “It makes it easy for me to pick up the movement and choreography.
Katrina is the perfect representation of what Nyssa should be, she claims. “Nyssa is just so kickass and badass that there have actually been times when I had to just stop and think about what I am doing as her character and then I giggle out of glee. It’s fun to be a comic book superhero/villain.”
Katrina filled Maxim in on grabbing her attention, a nice Chinese dinner, and what would happen if she hung out with ScarJo.

Make sure you tune in to Hallmark Channel today, November 26, 8/7c for the premiere of Katrina’s new Christmas-themed film, 12 Gifts of Christmas!
When Anna Russo, an unemployed fine arts painter, is unable to make ends meet, she is hired to become a personal Christmas shopper for Marc, an uptight corporate exec. As they begin working together, Marc learns that Christmas giving has less to do with the amount of money spent and more to do with the importance of the gift, while Anna discovers she might find success as an artist in a way she never expected. The best gift of all of course is the love they discover with one another.
Starring Katrina Law, Aaron O’Connell and Donna Mills.
I have added 149 high-resolution screencaps from the recent episode of Arrow into the gallery.
LAUREL TAKES HER SISTER TO NANDA PARBAT – The growing tension between Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Diggle (David Ramsey) puts both their lives at risk when they go after Damien Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough) and a H.I.V.E. deployed meta-human. Meanwhile, Laurel (Katie Cassidy) talks Thea (Willa Holland) into returning to Nanda Parbat to ask her father (John Barrowman) to put Sara (guest star Caity Lotz) into the Lazarus Pit. However, Laurel is surprised when Nyssa (guest star Katrina Law) refuses to do it. Wendey Stanzler directed the episode written by Wendy Mericle & Speed Weed (#403).
ABC Family has begun production on its Amanda Knox-style drama pilot “Guilt,” and has set the cast, led by Katrina Law, Billy Zane and Daisy Head as the prime suspect.
Head (“The Syndicate”) will play Grace, a young girl American girl living in London who is stunned when she becomes the top suspect in the savage murder of her roommate. Law (“Arrow,” “Spartacus: War of the Damned”) will play her sister Natalie, an attorney who drops everything when Grace becomes a murder suspect. Zane (“Titanic”) has been cast as Stan, Grace’s cocky defense attorney, who revels in conflict and enjoys winning.
The cast is rounded out by Cristian Solimeno (“Rush”), who will play D.S. Bruno, an ambitious Scotland Yard detective sergeant who is determined to get to the bottom of the murder and is immediately intrigued by Natalie; Naomi Ryan (“Guardians of the Galaxy”), who will play Gwendolyn, the crown prosecutor who is heavily involved with the case and shares a complicated history with Bruno; Kevin Ryan (“Copper”) as Patrick, whose sister Molly is the victim, so he vows revenge on her killer; Zachary Fall (“Crossing Lines”) as Luc, Grace’s drug-addicted boyfriend, who also is suspected of Molly’s murder; Simona Brown (“The Casual Vacancy”) as Roz, who was Grace and Molly’s roommate and is involved with shady dealings; newcomer Sam Cassidy as Prince Theo, a member of the royal family who secretly crossed paths with Molly; and Dinita Gohill (“The Last Train”) as Meera, a student along with Molly and Grace who is also a reporter for the university paper.
The soapy hourlong drama hails from writer-exec producers Kathryn Price (“The Game Plan”) and Nichole Millard (“The Game Plan”). Former ABC Entertainment chief Steve McPherson will also serve as exec producer. Gary Fleder (“Kingdom,” “Scorpion”) will direct the pilot, which is a co-production of Sea to Sky Entertainment and BV Family Productions.
