The Killing star Bex Taylor-Klaus has been added to the cast of The CW’s superhero series Arrow. The Hollywood Reporter says she’ll show up “in the third and fourth episodes” of the second season, airing this fall. Bex will play DC Comics character Sin, who the Reporter notes is “a wayward youth who is befriended by the Black Canary and has a connection with fellow street urchin, Roy Harper (Colton Haynes).”
Sin first appeared in the comic Birds of Prey in 1999 and she becomes a martial arts master of sorts, which means Bex could have some training ahead of her. Bex posted a photo of her and Colton on her Instagram yesterday.
And Colton Instagrammed a photo of the two on set. If this is any indication of Sin’s look for the show, I approve.

Sin, as far as I’m aware, is a straight character, so it’s likely we won’t be saying Bex playing gay again like she was on The Killing. However she will likely have a close relationship with Dinah Lance/Black Canary (Katie Cassidy, who played bisexual on the Melrose Place reboot.)
Arrow‘s second season premieres on October 2 on the CW.
