Shado Actress Celina Jade On What's To Come On The CW's ARROW
Yao Fei's (Byron Mann) daughter Shado made her debut on the last (new) episode of The CW's Arrow. The actress who portrays her is Celina Jade and here she discusses what's to come for her character. Spoiler Warning
Arrow returns March 20th and the last new episode teased us with the arrival of a new character named Shado (a character from Mike Grell's Longbow Hunters), played by Celina Jade. Shado happens to be Yao Fei's daughter and is currently a captive of the villainous Eddie Fyers (Sebastian Dunn) who is using her as a bargaining chip to get Fei to follow his orders. Below, Jade talks about what future episodes of Arrow have in store for Shado.
Apparently Shado doesn't stay a captive of Fyers for long as she joins up with Oliver and Slade.
"She will team up with Slade and Oliver to get on the rescue mission to save her father and escape the island. Somehow they have to come up with a way to leave the island."
And who is Shado exactly? How close is the character to her comic book doppelganger?
"First of all, she's not Japanese [laugh]. In the comics, Shado was the daughter of the Yakuza. Here... she's a lawyer fighting to free her father from being banished to the island by the Chinese government....Shado is an excellent martial artist. She's also trained in archery. We'll see more of that in upcoming episodes where she teaches Oliver a signature move....Slade's a little bit surprised by her marital arts skills. Her fighting might even be better than Slade's. Slade's been having trouble teaching Oliver how to do martial arts. Shado comes from different sort of training, so she'll have a go at teaching Oliver how to fight. In the end, they're on the same team. They want to save Yao-Fei and get off the island."
