Laurel sure is having a rough time as of late, and the eventual Nyssa didn't intend to kill Sara for leaving the League of Assassins, but. Ava and Sara's relationship had its obstacles, but for the most part everybody was like or what it meant until Sara, and we've seen her grow and develop on Arrow, especially throughout seasons 3 + 4 during her friendship with Laurel. that Ava is not interesred in men and that made her on the market.

As you've developed this character arguably as much as most of the comic book writers who have dealt with her, has it been gratifying to go from every interview starting with "When are we going to see Talia? You bring a sense of life to the character that they can relate to, whether they bond onto the character because they love it or hate it or whatever.
But I think Greg Rucka, who created Nyssa, did a wonderful job.
It is less stressful to not be Talia, to be honest. She's been done so many times that you kind of feel like there's a bible that you have to stick to.Arrow 4x13 - "I will not let you wage your war in my city". - Laurel to Nyssa
So when it comes to Nyssa, giving her a kind of British accent, making her a gay character, designing the look of her costume, I think it's kind of been a free-for-all and that's been really liberating and fun for everybody across the board, including hair and makeup and wardrobe and the writers and myself.
But it's been great. I love playing Nyssa; she's a beautiful, complex character. We've seen a lot more of Nyssa's human side this year, especially with Laurel. Is it challenging to find that level when you're being so different from always-badass Nyssa last year? I definitely think as long as the script is good, you just kind of roll with it, but it has been gratifying to see the softer side of Nyssa.
I think no matter who you are, everyone has a softer side and a vulnerable side, it's just a matter of when does it come out and who brings it out.
I do know that first scene where I find Laurel in the alley and I say, "I was looking for a reminder of your sister," and she says, "Well, let's go get something to eat," I remember for the first time having to be vulnerable and having my power taken away from me, and just being a little insecure as an actor, going "Is this right?
So there was a little bit of insecurity but I just had to trust that the director would tell me if something was going wrong, but they never said anything and I think it worked.
But also, as her father used the Lazarus Pit more and more, she saw her father start to warp into more of an actual demon.
The Pit changes you, and the more you use it, the more it changes you. The more strength it gives you, it just makes you a darker human being. Is it ever odd to play a character who is in such pursuit of another character, like Nyssa is with Malcolm, and yet not actually share all that many scenes with him?
Whenever I do get to work with John Barrowman, it is absolutely a joy. We just crack each other up.
‘Arrow': Katrina Law on Season 4 and Nyssa’s Place in Oliver’s Team
But, it is funny. Nyssa threatens Thea, but how do you think she feels about having to do that? That is one of the last things in the world that she would ever want to do. Meanwhile, Malcolm has been becoming stronger and stronger. That was my justification, in my head. But in order for her to have asked Oliver, she has to be in a desperate position, knowing that Oliver has sworn never to kill anybody again.

If Nyssa were to either end Malcolm or come to some agreement with him, what would be next for her? Does she even know what the next step after that would be?
The great thing about Nyssa is that she has a very clear vision for what she wants and what she wants to do. In the last episode, she was still very much in a meditative state, and was very cool, calm and collected. And if she gets the title back, she has a very clear idea of what she wants to do with it. At this point, what do you think Nyssa thinks of Team Arrow, running around in their costumes with their code names?
I think it would be calling the kettle black, if she were to think that they were insane for running around in costumes. I think she has a massive respect for them, mainly because of the Lance sisters, but also Oliver has proven himself.
