Arrow Cast and Characters


Stephen Amell as ARROW or OLIVER - After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he's become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the main character of Arrow - a vigilant to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory.

Willa Holland as THEA QUEEN - (it is insinuated) idolized Oliver as a child. They used to be close and, according to Oliver, she used to chase after him when she was younger; thus her given nickname, "Speedy." When her father and brother were both presumed dead, Thea felt alone — disconnected from the world. She fell into a life of drugs and partying to fill the void left by her father and brother. Oliver's reappearance has done little to fill that void, as he is hardly ever around to re-connect with his sister. After a string of "disappearances" and a murder charge, Thea herself is starting to wonder where it is exactly that Oliver "disappears" to.

Colin Donell as TOMMY MERLYN - Tommy Merlyn (born 1984) is a former billionaire "trustafarian", and the best friend of Oliver Queen.When Oliver returns to Starling City, Tommy believes the good times will roll again but is greatly mistaken as Oliver is a changed man. In Oliver's absence, he forms an on-again, off-again relationship with Oliver's ex-girlfriend Laurel Lance. He later goes to confront his father about why his trust fund was shut off. Malcolm replies by stating he cannot use his money unreasonably. In Year's End, Oliver is confronted by a very dangerous vigilante. This vigilante not only uses a new very distinctive arrow, but Oliver doesn't know this masked man is actually his best friend's father, Malcolm Merlyn. His mother died in 1992.

David Ramsey as JOHN DIGGLE - Security/Body Guard of Oliver Green. Sidekick of the vigilante Green Arrow. Ex-Military with tours in abroad. Diggle was hired by Moira Queen after Oliver was kidnapped.

He discovers Oliver is Arrow after he is taken to Ollie's lair to recuperate after being shot by Deadshot. After this discovery, he quit his job as Oliver's bodyguard stating how he did not approve how "Oliver spent his nights". However, he later joined Oliver in "helping" Starling City, albeit mostly on the sideline, and even donned the Arrow costume in order to save Oliver from incarceration.

Susanna Thompson as MOIRA QUEEN - is the mother of Oliver and Thea Queen, and the wife of Walter Steele. When her son returns, she is seemingly happy that he is alive. After Oliver is abducted, she voices concern over his safety, and hires John Diggle to be his bodyguard. However, at the end of "Pilot", she is shown to be the one behind Oliver's abduction after his arrival. At the end of "Honor Thy Father", it is revealed that the yacht was actually sabotaged, which led to the shipwreck. Moira is further questioned by Malcolm Merlyn who points out to her that the vigilante is going after the people on "the List".
