Juliana Harkavy (“The Walking Dead,” “Constantine”) is joining CW’s “Arrow.”
Harkavy will have a recurring role as Tina Boland, a detective formerly of Central City. Boland is brash yet tactful, tough, speaks her mind, and is not the easiest person to impress. She also has a problem with vigilantes like Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) and his new team of recruits: Wild Dog (Rick Gonzalez), Artemis (Madison McLaughlin), Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum), and Ragman (Joe Dinicol). Harkavy’s character will join in the back half of the season.
The fifth season of “Arrow” has taken Oliver back to his more violent tendencies, seeing him start to kill again. Those homicidal urges, along with his training of a new wave of vigilantes to flood the streets, will no doubt be a source of friction between him and Boland.
This isn’t Harkavy’s first time playing in the DC universe: She had a guest spot on NBC’s “Constantine” in 2014. Harkavy also played Alisha, a former Army Reservist and member of Caesar Martinez’s group, in Season 4 of AMC’s “The Walking Dead.”
Harkavy is repped by APA and Brevard Talent.
“Arrow” airs on the CW on Wednesdays at 8/7c.
