ARROW: Stephen Amell Comments Briefly On The Introduction Of China White And Deadshot
Talking at the Television Critics Association press tour, Arrow's Stephen Amell (Oliver Queen) has shared his thoughts on Deadshot's introduction to the series and what it has been like to face off against Kelly Hu's (X-2) villainous China White.
Talking to Green Arrow TV at the Television Critics Association press tour yesterday, Arrow star Stephen Amell confirmed that Deadshot will appear in the third episode of the series ("Lone Gunmen") and shared his thoughts on how he believes their confrontation will go down. "Unfavourably, for Deadshot, I would suspect. I can tell you that they are going to be after some of the same people. Oliver does have a code. Obviously, it doesn’t include 'no killing,' as we’ve established so far, but there is a code. I don’t think Deadshot it. I don’t think he respects his methods, which puts him in Oliver’s sights." There's currently no word on who will portray the villain.
However, we do know who plays China White in the second episode ("Honor Thy Father"); X-2 actress, Kelly Hu. "It was awesome, man, Amell told the site about working with her on the show. "I had seen her in X2, and I had seen her in Vampire Diaries, and she came up, we did some cool fight training...she’s enthusiastic. I get to speak to her in Mandarin, which was fun. She’s great. It’s cool, because we took the Arrow costume and tried to make it as functional and as real as possible, so it was cool to see the next iteration of a villain. Her character’s costume...the idea that these would be real people, so seeing her in costume looks great. She’s awesome."
Which other villains (and heroes) would you like to see in Arrow? Sound off with your thoughts in the usual place, and stay tuned for more news on the show as we get closer to its premiere on the CW on October 10th.
