Australian actress Jessica De Gouw has landed a multi-episode arc on the new CW Network superhero series Arrow, portraying Helena Berinelli, a.k.a. the Huntress. Here is the official description of the character, who will debut in the show's sixth episode of Season 1.

"Helena is a potential love interest for Oliver Queen; a fellow vigilante, set on destroying her father's organized crime empire. But Helena's blind pursuit of revenge will put her on a collision course with the Arrow."

Stephen Amell stars as the billionaire playboy Oliver Queen, who heads out at night with his bow and arrow to clean up the streets of Starling City. We reported last month that Kelly Hu is guest starring as the villainous China White. John Barrowman (Torchwood) also signed on recently for a mysterious recurring role.

Arrow debuts with "Who Am I?" Wednesday, October 10 at 8 PM ET on The CW Network.
