The news is officially out: ComicBook.com (you know she LOVES that!) reports that Arrow’s Bex Taylor-Klaus will be featured as a Guest star in iZombie’s June 2nd episode, “Dead Rat, Live Rat, Brown Rat, White Rat.” (No Dr. Seuss jokes here, just reporting the news).
And here’s a fun trailer for the episode (yes, she’s in it):
And a promo shot …
We started watching iZombie this season in anticipation of Bex’s appearance. It’s a clever premise, fun to watch, and not nearly as “dark” as you might expect — though it has it’s moments.
Tune in to the CW Network on Tuesday night, June 2nd at 9 pm ET/8 pm CT
See you there!
The word is officially out … so now we can share!
Sin-sational Scoop: Bex Taylor-Klaus Cast on Arrow Season 2
by Matt Richenthal
August 15th, 2013
Fresh off an eerie stint on The Killing, Bex Taylor-Klaus has been cast on Arrow Season 2.
The young actress will portray the DC character of Sin on Episodes 3 and 4 this fall, an individual known to fans of the comic book as having connections with both The Black Canary (she’s actually her adopted daughter in the comic mythology) and Roy Harper.
Bex Taylor-Klaus will play Sin on the second season of “Arrow”

The Killing star Bex Taylor-Klaus has been added to the cast of The CW’s superhero series Arrow. The Hollywood Reporter says she’ll show up “in the third and fourth episodes” of the second season, airing this fall. Bex will play DC Comics character Sin, who the Reporter notes is “a wayward youth who is befriended by the Black Canary and has a connection with fellow street urchin, Roy Harper (Colton Haynes).”
Sin first appeared in the comic Birds of Prey in 1999 and she becomes a martial arts master of sorts, which means Bex could have some training ahead of her. Bex posted a photo of her and Colton on her Instagram yesterday.
And Colton Instagrammed a photo of the two on set. If this is any indication of Sin’s look for the show, I approve.
Sin, as far as I’m aware, is a straight character, so it’s likely we won’t be saying Bex playing gay again like she was on The Killing. However she will likely have a close relationship with Dinah Lance/Black Canary (Katie Cassidy, who played bisexual on the Melrose Place reboot.)
Arrow‘s second season premieres on October 2 on the CW.
THE KILLING’S Bex Taylor-Klaus Snapped On ARROW Set
By Mark Julian
Bex Taylor-Klaus who plays Bullet on AMC’s The Killing, was snapped on the set of The CW’s Arrow, filming scenes with Roy Harper actor Colton Haynes. Will Willa Holland’s Thea have a romantic rival in Arrow season 2?
Perhaps Oliver (Stephen Amell), won’t be the only lead male on the show having great luck with the ladies? Set photos of newcomer Bex Taylor-Klaus, who’s turning heads on AMC’s The Killing, imply that her character will be introduced onto Arrow through Roy Harper. Do these two know one another or have they just met?
In the scene they filmed together, “Colton chases Bex across a used car dealership and she gets away from him”. If she’s meant to be a love rival for Thea, is she playing a punk-version of Cheshire? Then again, considering that was my first thought and the way Arrow’s showrunners like to play with fan expectations, she’s probably not Cheshire…probably.

‘Arrow’ Recruits ‘The Killing’ Star for Season 2
by Philiana Ng, Lesley Goldberg
Bex Taylor-Klaus, best known as Bullet on the AMC drama, has joined in a recurring capacity.
Arrow is adding another DC Comics character to its arsenal.
Bex Taylor-Klaus, best known for her arc on The Killing as Bullet, has been cast as Sin, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. She will appear in the third and fourth episodes of The CW drama’s upcoming second season.
Sin, who first appeared in a 1999 issue of the Birds of Preyseries, is described as a wayward youth who is befriended by the Black Canary and has a connection with fellow street urchin, Roy Harper (Colton Haynes).
At Comic-Con, producers revealed that a slew of new characters would be introduced: Brother Blood (Kevin Alejandro), Black Canary and Bronze Tiger (Michael Jai White). A sizzle reel featured a new actress playing Black Canary, a departure from the trajectory prescribed in the comic books for Katie Cassidy’s Laurel Lance — but executive producer Andrew Kreisberg indicated it was by design.
“The first Green Arrow we saw wasn’t Oliver; chronologically, it was Yao Fei,” he said at the time. “The first Deathstroke we saw wasn’t Slade Wilson; the first Merlyn the archer we saw wasn’t his father, it was Tommy.”
During the Television Critics Association summer press tour, producers revealed that Barry Allen/Flash will appear in the eighth, ninth and 20th episodes. The 20th episode will serve as a backdoor pilot for a potential series.
Taylor-Klaus is repped by Corsa Agency and Curtis Talent.
Arrow returns Oct. 9 on The CW.
After three days of independence — where Bex missed her siblings and contemplated getting a puppy for about 15 seconds — Elaine arrived in Vancouver to be mama-on-the-ground for the first week of filming.
Sunday hosted a walk about Vancouver to discover a less pricy grocery store, where we ran into Mirelle‘s husband and daughter (hubby known to many of you as Cameron in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off). Sunday afternoon and evening, a cast bonding experience during the Oscar’s set the stage for a great week! Lyric’s (Julia)’s mother, Sue, invited Max, Bex and me to dinner and an Academy Awards watching party. It was a pleasure to enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal (complete with home-rolled bison and black bean enchiladas, and scrumptious GF Chocolate brownies, from scratch!) while we watched the events unfold from red-carpet to press conference. Max, Bex and Julia get along beautifully — hard to believe they only met less than a week ago!
Although the third season of The Killing began shooting at 5:30am Monday morning, Bex starts shooting Wednesday.
Here’s how it works: each episode has 7 filming-days, which usually spread out across 9 or 10 days because of weekends. Bex is in at least 7 of the 12-13 episodes, and can be called upon for between 2 and 5 of the filming days. There is a tremendous amount of variability in the schedules. The production folk have two teams, and while one is in filming, the other begins planning the next episode. So Bex will learn her schedule every 7-10 days, generally no more than one week out. BUT … last minute changes are expected to be the rule, rather than the exception.
Monday and Tuesday were spent “banking” hours with the tutor, running lines, and trying not to be too nervous. Right.
Bex’s call is at 7:30 on Wed. morning, and Sue is kind enough to drive us all to the location. I started wondering — do we need to wake up early enough to eat before we go? But Natalie assured me, we should go to the set hungry! So, I’ll leave you hungry for more with this description of an average day’s catering, and I’ll catch you again after Lyric, Twitch, Kallie and Bullet take the streets!
“…an amazing catered breakfast with made to order stuff, as well; and they should be able to accommodate Bex’s gluten free needs. They serve it until crew call (which is 9 am tomorrow). Then, 3 hours after crew call, sandwiches and soup or something warm comes out; and 6 hours after crew call is lunch. A hot snack 3 hours after lunch, and some sort of take-out if crew is still there 6 hours after lunch. Not to mention the usually stocked craft service.“
After a lightning speed turn-around exit from LA — with notice on Thursday morning that Bex had to be in Vancouver to report to wardrobe on Monday — Bex’s Fabulous “Hollywood Goes to Vancouver Adventure” was off to a solid start. Thank God David was already in LA and able to shift his schedule to help Bex get out of town! The logistics involved were mind-boggling! But the network helped a lot, arranged for David to accompany Bex, and they headed to Vancouver on Sunday afternoon.
Bex had a VERY full first two days setting up an apartment and getting a cast physical, while paying her visits to wardrobe, hair, makeup and round one of props. All of that was peppered with introductions to people, process, protocols, paperwork and a precious puppy.
The apartment is in the “official” hotel of The Killing, right in the center of downtown Vancouver.
Unfortunately, the studio is 45+ minutes away in Burnaby. Guess its a good thing that Bex is playing a “street” kid, so many of her scenes will be filmed on location in the streets of Vancouver! Public Transportation is manageable, but it’s a lot to navigate when you’re new to a city, new to an industry, new to a career, new to living independently…you get the picture!
As David headed back to Atlanta around 4 a.m., Bex started a new life of independent living — she officially lives alone in a 1 bedroom apartment in Vancouver, BC. WOW!
A “day off” on Wednesday — which meant she spent several hours with the tutor provided by the studio (enter Natalie — Fabulous Natalie!). She also had several hours of school-time on Thursday morning before the entire cast had a read-through on Thursday afternoon, followed by a cast dinner to get to know each other. Bex arrived early and sat next to co-Executive Producer Ron French — and by the time the evening was over, Ron was sending a scout to Bex’s Acting Class Showcase in LA on Saturday morning. Bex is determined to figure out a way to get her sister-from-another-mother to visit Vancouver — preferably with a job! 😉
Friday was technically an off day, with some tutor time, and some tweaking and testing for wardrobe, hair, makeup and props. With episode #1 set to start filming on Monday, Elaine arrived in Vancouver on Saturday to book-end David’s support at the beginning of the week.
So that was it. Vancouver, British Columbia. The first week.
