One of the original cast members is off the CW drama series “Arrow.” The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that Willa Holland, who saw her role reduced during the past two seasons, is now exiting the show entirely.
“Her last episode aired Thursday night and saw her character leave town in pursuit of righting her father’s wrongs,” THR reports. Holland played Thea Queen/Speedy for six seasons.
The report quotes executive producer Marc Guggenheim saying: “We’re very sad to see Willa go. She’s been a critical part of Arrow since its inception and a wonderful and talented person to boot. But we’re in our sixth season now and supportive of her wish to stretch her legs and pursue other creative opportunities. The door is always open for Willa to return if she has a hankering to.”
