Arrow Casts Austin Butler: The Thea Diaries!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Carrie Bradshaw has nothing on Thea Queen.

Not even a boy toy like Austin Butler, as TV Line announced he's been cast on on Arrow Season 3 as Chase, a talented and magnetic DJ who interests Thea both professionally and... romantically!

Will the new romance between Thea and Chase cause any problems for Roy? Let's hope not. After all, he's off the Mirakuru now and all the bowl slapping should have finally served its purpose, giving him a way to channel his inner turmoil.

Other than this exciting news, we know Thea got a great new, freeing haircut, is hanging with her badass daddy Malcolm Merlyn and is learning how to wield a giant blade. Her life has become very exciting since leaving the Queen mansion!

Butler will make his debut in Arrow Season 3 Episode 7.

We're excited to see this new side to Thea. How about you? If you miss the girl she was, you can watch Arrow online while you wait for the premiere on Wednesday, October 8 at 8/7c.
