Arrow’s Colton Haynes Promoted to Series Regular for Season 2
Per THR, Arrow’s Colton Haynes has been promoted to series regular for the show’s second season.
The former Teen Wolf star has been recurring as troubled youth, Roy Harper, who Arrow takes under his wing in later episodes, going so far as to offer him a job in his new nightclub.
Executive producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg previously hinted that Haynes’ Harper was destined to become a large part of Thea (Willa Holland) life, as hinted at when Harper first stole Thea’s handbag, sparking her interest in him and his troubled home life.
Speaking to THR in February, Haynes said “Having a younger character like Roy on the show could appeal to a wider audience — plus, his relationship with Thea is really blossoming. I’m very hopeful.”
Arrow airs Wednesdays on the CW Network.
