Stargate SG-1 and Caprica star Teryl Rothery confirmed her casting in Arrow Season 2 on Twitter, saying, “Hello lovely people. First day on Arrow. My character VERY different from Grace.”

What a nice lady.

According to the brilliant GreenArrowTV.com, Rothery will be playing Jean Loring, the original wife of the shrinking Atom – aka, Ray Palmer – who is perhaps now better known for her shocking role in DC Comics’ Identity Crisis.

According the the site, the official bio reads, “JEAN LORING is a savvy attorney from the DC COMICS UNIVERSE who would do anything for her clients. Jean makes her way onto Arrow as a longtime friend and legal counsel to Moira Queen, who is on trial for her role in the destruction of The Glades, but soon finds herself pulled into the scandalous lives of the entire Queen family.”
