Katana Gets New Identity On Arrow
Due to a “scheduling conflict”, Devin Aoki – the actress who played Katana in the Season Three opener for “Arrow” – has been replaced by Rila Fukushima [“The Wolverine”] for the recurring role. Fukushima will appear during Oliver Queen’s numerous flashbacks as Tatsu Yamashiro/Katana – a Japanese martial arts expert who is also one of Oliver’s mentors.
The “Arrow” Season Three opener – “The Calm” – will be aired on The CW network on October 8, 2014.
