Katana is Coming to CW’s ARROW



Deadline has reported that actress Rila Fukushima, who played Yukio in the film “The Wolverine,” has been cast to star on “Arrow” as the Japanese martial arts expert who wields a soul collecting sword, Tatsu Yamashiro aka Katana.

Tatsu Yamashiro will be a part of flashbacks, as a mentor to Oliver Queen.

Fukushima takes over for Devon Aoki (“Sin City”), who dropped out of the role due to scheduling conflicts.

“Arrow” returns Wednesday Oct. 8 on The CW.
