Aoki will portray Tatsu Yamashiro (aka Katana), an expert with the sword and a martial arts guru.

She will appear in multiple Hong Kong flashbacks, playing an important role in Oliver’s journey to becoming the Arrow.

Look for this beloved CW series to flash over to Hong Kong on numerous occasions this fall (it returns with new episodes on October 8 at 8/7c) and for other recurring characters to be cast in the weeks ahead.

In the meantime, you can always watch Arrow online in order to catch up.

Arrow Quotes

Sara: That's not true. I wanted to kill Roy because that's what I do. That's who I am. I spent six years in the darkness and I looked into the eyes of the devil and I gave him my soul.
Oliver: I can help you get it back.
Sara: No. You deserve someone better. You can harness that light that's still inside of you, but I'm not that person and I never will be.

Laurel: Helena, you don't have to do this.
Helena: Yes, I do. Because once you let the darkness inside, it never comes out.
