Comments Off on ARROW: Rila Fukushima to Replace Devon Aoki

ARROW’s Katana has been recast: a rep for the show has confirmed that Rila Fukushima will replace the previously-announced Devon Aoki, who had to drop out of The CW series due to a scheduling conflict.

Tatsu Yamashiro (AKA Katana), is set to one of Oliver’s mentors in this season’s flashbacks. According to the original character description, Katana is “a Japanese martial arts expert who wields a deadly sword, a blade from which her codename Katana is derived.”

Deadline was first to report the actress swap.

ARROW returns Wednesday, October 8th at 8 PM on The CW.
