This week on Arrow, we were finally introduced to Ra’s al Ghul’s famous daughter, Talia al Ghul (Lexa Doig). In a new interview, though, actress Katrina Law speaks about her desire to return to the franchise as the other al Ghul sister, Nyssa.
Earlier this month, Law expressed her wish to return to Arrow for an on-screen reunion with her sister. As for whether that’s even a possibility, she now tells ComicBook.com, “I am not allowed to tell you anything under the threat of death from [Arrow executive producer] Marc Guggenheim.”
Nyssa vs. Talia
“I am not allowed to tell you anything under the threat of death from Marc Guggenheim.”
It turns out, she has actually reached out to Guggenheim about the idea, though. “When I found out they were casting Talia, I e-mailed Marc and I was like, ‘Please, please let us have a sister showdown!'” says Law. “Because my inner nerd was just kind of exploding because if it’s anything like the comics I know that my character basically kills Talia 50 times and just keeps dumping into the Lazarus pit so she can keep bringing her back and get her onto her evil ways. I don’t think that’s gonna happen in Arrow the television series but one can always hope. But, if not, if not a contentious relationship, then maybe one where we’re like standing back to back shooting arrows. That’d be pretty cool.”
The problem with Law returning is her new regular series role on CBS’ Training Day, which premieres on February 2. Nonetheless, admits she’d actually be up for a return appearance on another Arrowverse show, Legends of Tomorrow.
“I think a Legends of Tomorrow appearance should be mandatory!”
“I think a Legends of Tomorrow appearance should be mandatory!” says Law. “That’s what I’m thinking because we need Sara and Nyssa. We need the Nyssara backstory of how they met on Liam Yu and how she trained her and basically how she found her on the streets and what the introduction to Ra’s al Ghul was like and eventually how they fell in love, I think people want to see that. I want to see that. Hopefully, one day. Again, I have no idea, but fingers crossed. That’s the wishlist.”
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on The CW. You can catch Katrina Law in Training Day when it premieres on Thursday, February 2 at 10/9c on CBS.
