TRUE BLOOD's Janina Gavankar Joins The Cast Of ARROW

The True Blood star is yet another wonderful addition to the cast of CW's hit series Arrow. Janina Gavankar will be playing a Starling City police officer, and we've got more details on the role after the jump.

According to Zap2It, True Blood's Janina Gavankar has joined the cast of Arrow in a major recurring police officer role. Her character is named McKenna Hall and is described as "a vice cop with the Starling City Police Department. Tough, sexy, and considerably formidable, McKenna has a complicated history with Oliver." Hall also dealt with Oliver before he shipwrecked on the island, when he was the usual badboy, something we got a glimpse of in Arrow #1: Special Edition. What do you think of this casting? Sound off with your thoughts below.

Gavankar joins Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, Colin Donnell, Susanna Thompson, John Barrowman and Willa Holland.

Now, I'm not saying Arrow is fantastic. The action is great, but the story line/acting can often dip into cheese. it the best CBTV ever? I know it's a low bar, but has there ever been a better CBTV show? Can't think of one.

Let's be careful here, too many women and we get 90210. Not because adding women does that but the CW likes to do that type of thing.

ANOTHER HOT CHICK IN ARROW! Keep them coming. Love the show.

wow storytelelr that so does not sound sexiest what so ever.

I think its interesting, I Only saw the pilot and read scripts form true blood. so I can only wait to see her.

@Godzillafart says the man who thinks TASM is a perfect film, that is probly the best thing I have ever herd coming form you. Smallville was pretty good to. You forgot S.H.E.I.L.D.

Arrow just got interesting!

She's my Wonder Woman choice.

She's not in the least bit hispanic, so I don't know where you're going with that.

I freaking love Arrow

Even the extremely corny lines and moments have some weird charm.

The OST is just unbelievably good as is the action. Besides the mother and Thea, I actually care for all the characters.

This and Person of Interest are best shows not on AMC or HBO

could be Wonder Woman in disguise...

I gotta admit Arrow is like my guilty pleasure. The show has cool action, looks, and actors (somebody get Oliver a damn acting coach) but it also has some pretty bad dialog, and ridiculous scenes, still I hope lil miss hottie here sticks around long enough for Ollie boy to get some action since the Laurel thing is looking like it might take a while.

I have really liked Arrow up until this week. The way they handled the Royal Flush Gang was pretty weak, as far as I am concerned.

Arrow has a collection of some of the best looking chicks I've ever seen on one show.
Optimus83 - 11/16/2012, 6:35 PM

I'm going with that because according to police information is a female, and nowhere is mentioned that it can be Shayera Hall and less Wonder Woman or some such character


voy con eso porque según la información es una policía femenina, y en ninguna parte se menciona que pueda ser Shayera Hall y menos Wonder Woman o algún personaje de ese tipo
XavierLehnsherr - 11/16/2012, 6:38 PM
Wait. She's Shiva from The League? AWESOME HAHAHAH
Battabing - 11/16/2012, 7:14 PM
She would have been the perfect Huntress!
MMMM, Arrow is chock full of hot chicks! The supporting BFF chick for Dinah is hot. The nerdy IT chick at Queen Industries is hot. Diggle's sister-in law is hot. Even Ollie's mom is smokin' hot!

GetsugaTensho22 - 11/16/2012, 7:47 PM
Meh. I don't like her face.
Nivekian - 11/16/2012, 9:00 PM
