One of the things we knew about the upcoming season of Arrow is that Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was going to have to deal with an FBI Agent trying to figure out the connection between Mayor Queen and the Green Arrow. Variety is reporting that the agent is named Samanda Watson and will be played by Sydelle Noel.
Agent Watson is being described as “intelligent and poised with a no nonsense attitude.” She’s the type that won’t rest until she has answers. This is probably not a good thing for Oliver. He hasn’t had to deal with this kind of scrutiny since back when Quentin Lance was trying to track him down.
Executive producer Marc Guggenheim spoke of a concentrated effort to bring more female characters into the Arrowverse as a whole, she joins the returning Katie Cassidy and the newly promoted to series regular Juliana Harkavy.
Noel appears as Cherry Bang on the Netflix series GLOW and is part of the upcoming Marvel Black Panther movie.
