Elysia Rotaru, a 31-year-old Vancouver actress, has been cast as Oliver Queen’s new love interest in the upcoming season of shot-in-Vancouver Arrow.

Rotaru has worked on numerous projects shooting in the city, including Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules, TV’s MotiveBackstrom and Supernatural.

Entertainment Weekly first broke the news Monday evening, revealing that Rotaru had been cast as a character from Oliver’s past who will appear in recurring flashback scenes.

Executive Producer of Arrow, Marc Guggenheim told EW: “Oliver is gonna have a love interest in the past that will serve as a parallel or potentially a contrast to his love affair with Felicity in the present.”

Rotaru is close friends with Vancouver-native Shay Mitchell, who plays Emily on ABC’s Pretty Little Liars.
