GOSSIP GIRL Willa Holland Joins Cast of CW's ARROW

GOSSIP GIRL Willa Holland Joins Cast of CW's ARROW

The young actress is best known for playing Kaitlin Cooper on The O.C., and more recently Agnes Andrews on The CW series Gossip Girl.



Deadline is reporting that Willa Holland will be playing the part of Oliver Queen's younger sister, Thea Queen.

Thea Queen, Oliver’s younger sister. She was 12 when Oliver and her father disappeared. Now she’s a “celebutante” who acts badly. She loved her big brother with all of her heart, and she’s glad to have him back – but now that she’s older and spreading her wings, she might not be ready for Oliver to be Bad Cop in her family and making sure she behaves. She is the only one who gets away with calling Oliver “Ollie,” and Ollie, in turn, calls her “Speedy.” - The TV Addict


The role of the troubled younger sister should be very comfortable ground for Willa as that was much of her role in Fox's The O.C.. Although she didn't become a main character in that show until season four, filling the void that was created when her on screen older sister (Mischa Barton) was killed off.


CW's Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow, Katie Cassidy as Dinah “Laurel” Lance, Susanna Thompson as Moira Queen, and David Ramsey as John Diggle.

Speedy is not Green Arrow's sister. Hopefully this doesnt turn out like Smallville or Birds of Prey. Although Im not excited about this show, I would still want him to wear the costume.

she'll 'reform' and become his sidekick by the end of season 1 to hook the tween girl crowd.. they're just forshadowing it for the fanboys

The "Chloe" of the show?

Hopefully she'll be speedy, and unlike smallville she won't dissappear and never be heard of again.

however, i would like it if theu did the roy speedy and him leaving to become red arrow. would be interesting to watch
