Arrow Casts Oliver's New Love Interest — Should Felicity Be Worried?

Arrow Oliver Girlfriend Elysia Rotaru Cast

Arrow‘s Oliver will have another woman to contend with when Season 4 starts up — but interestingly enough, she’s been part of his life all along.

The CW series has cast Elysia Rotaru as a lady from the superhero’s past, EW.com reports… and that’s about all that’s known about her recurring character.

His past relationship with the mystery woman “will serve as a parallel or potentially a contrast to his love affair with Felicity in the present,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim told the site. (Translation: Olicity fans probably don’t have to worry about her sinking that ‘ship.)

Rotaru’s TV credits include SmallvilleHellcatsSupernatural and iZombie.

Arrow returns to The CW on Wednesday, Oct. 7, at 8/7c.

Arrow fans, how are we feeling about Rotaru’s addition to the cast? Sound off in the comments!
