Carmen Moore in Arrow

Here's a Native guest-star role that I saw but didn't even realize at the time:

‘Arrow’: H.I.V.E. Will Play a Major Role in Season 4If there’s one thing the writers of the CW’s Arrow joyfully revel in–it’s pulling the rug out from under their audience. They’ve proven they can write in twists that fans didn’t see coming from miles away–but they’ve also show they’re not afraid of the long-haul with some of their story threads and supporting characters. In fact, one of the more interesting storylines the writers have had going from the very first season even, yet keep surrounded with secrecy and conspiracy, is the murder of John Diggle’s (David Ramsey) brother by Floyd Lawton a.k.a. Deadshot (Michael Rowe).

While the writers killed off Lawton just a few episodes ago in “Suicidal Tendencies,” they didn’t do so without progressing the story along even further–when audiences at long last got to see the moment when Deadshot was approached by H.I.V.E. to kill Andy Diggle. Not much was said about the criminal organization in the scene, and the woman from H.I.V.E. was an unknown character–so fans have been left to wonder when they might finally get to learn the truth behind all this conspiracy.
Comment:  The actress looked vaguely familiar to me, but I was too busy pondering the plot to think about her. It's Carmen Moore, of course, as someone pointed out.

I don't think I've ever seen her in a network TV show, since she's Canadian and doesn't do much Hollywood work. That may be why I didn't recognize her--because I didn't expect her or any Native in a superhero-spy story.

One fan speculated:My best is that the mystery woman is either Talia al Ghul or Lady Shiva. Either one will be just fantastic.Either one would be a big role for a Native actress. She'd undoubtedly appear in several episodes, not just one.
