According to Entertainment Weekly, Amy Gumenick – best known as young Mary Winchester in Supernatural – has joined the cast of The CW’s Arrow Season 3 Episode 6 and 7.

Gumenick will play Carrie Cutter aka Cupid, who has a murderous obsession with the emerald archer. In the comic this proves especially risky for Black Canary.

Arrow executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, who created the character during his fan-favourite run on Green Arrow/Black Canary, told the site “I always loved the idea of Green Arrow having a crazed fan.

“When I was writing the comic-book, my big goal was to create a villain who would last. Cupid has since appeared in the DC Nation shorts on Cartoon Network, and to have her fight our TV Arrow is so much more than I ever could have hoped for the character.”

Arrow Season 3 returns to The CW on 8 October 2014 and soon after on Sky 1 and Sky 1 HD in the UK. You can buy Arrow Season 1 on Blu-ray for £11.25 at Amazon.co.uk. Find out more about the comics that inspired the show with new digital magazine Uncanny Comics
