GLOW's Sydelle Noel Joins Arrow Season 6

GLOW breakout Sydelle Noel is joining ArrowVariety reports that the actress has signed on to a recurring role in the show's upcoming sixth season, with the actress playing Samandra Watson, an FBI agent who investigates Oliver's (Stephen Amell) connection to the Green Arrow.

Watson is being described as "intelligent and poised with a no nonsense attitude," something which fits well with her unrelenting mission to discover the Green Arrow's secrets. Noel's past and future roles definitely fit the bill of a badass woman– in addition to her leading role on the Netflix hit, she has previously appeared in Extant, The Night Shift, Bones, Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, and Private Practice. She also has a part in Marvel's upcoming Black Panther.

Season six will also see the addition of Lost and Person of Interest star Michael Emerson as a mysterious part of a "villainous cabal" which will also include the comics' Richard Dragon, whose casting has not been announced yet. David Nylk, who plays Oliver's former Bratva mentor Anatoly Knyavez, will also be back with a vengeance in the upcoming season. 

While the explosive events at the end of season five may have dwindled the ranks of Team Arrow slightly, the season six trailer did reveal that at least Katie Cassidy's Black Siren (previously confirmed as a series regular for season six), Juliana Harkavy's Dinah Drake, and Manu Bennett's Deathstroke survived alongside Oliver. Other cast members expected to return for the season, should they survive, include Willa Holland as Thea, David Ramsey as Diggle, Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity, and Paul Blackthrone as Detective Lance.

Arrow's sixth season premieres on Oct. 12. In the meantime, see what the show's characters should really look like based on the comics.
