Colton Haynes Promoted to Series Regular on ‘Arrow’ for Season 2
Former ‘Teen Wolf’ hottie, Colton Haynes, who has been recurring on The CW’s superhero drama ‘Arrow’ as teen rebel Roy Harper for season one, has been promoted to series regular for season two.
Haynes’s promotion will take effect starting with Arrow’s forthcoming second season, while he will also continue to recur throughout the remainder of season one.
The news comes a month after Haynes made his debut on the network’s freshman hit as a mysterious pickpocket who becomes romantically involved with Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) sister Thea.
“Our interpretation of Roy is hopefully unexpected,” said show exec Marc Guggenheim. “Obviously he’s from a very different side of the tracks from Thea, so that gives us a fun dynamic to play around with.”

‘Arrow’ is currently on a midseason hiatus and will return to ‘The CW’ later this month.
