We’ve just returned from a screening of the Arrow season premiere, airing this Monday, October 15 on The CW, and a peek at the credits noted that Colton Haynes isn’t the only actor getting a series regular upgrade for Arrow Season 7!
Kirk Acevedo, whose Ricardo Diaz (a.k.a. The Dragon) was a recurring presence during the sixth year and went on to be a Big Bad that survived to Season 7, is now a series regular on the show! Considering the damage that he did to Oliver Queen and his family in Season 6, he is bound to be a menacing presence for the seventh year.
Acevedo’s previous credits include Fringe, 12 Monkeys, Kingdom, and Oz. He also made a visit to the Marvel Universe with a guest role on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. You can find Kirk on Twitter at @kirkacevedo.
