A familiar face from True Blood is coming to Starling City.
Actress Janina Gavankar will play “McKenna Hall” in a multi-episode arc on The CW’s Arrow.
McKenna is a Starling City PD vice cop, but she knew Oliver Queen back in his pre-island bad boy days. When a new drug called Vertigo — dealt by a dealer character played by Fringe actor Seth Gabel — starts wrecking havoc, their paths will cross in more ways than one. Gavankar plays Luna Garza on the HBO vampire hit and was also on Showtime’s The L Word. Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m.
Billionaire Oliver Queen — under the vigilante persona of Arrow — tries to right the wrongs of his family and fight the ills of society.
