30. The One That Got Away
If you were to re-watch the Arrow pilot you might wonder who the mysterious brunette romancing Oliver Queen on the Queen’s Gambit is.
What many fans might not realize is Caity Lotz was not the first actress cast in the role of Sara Lance – that honor went to actress Jacqueline MacInnes Wood.
Woods was initially cast in the role of Sara for the Arrow pilot, however when the series’ first season began production The CW unexpectedly recast the role for unknown reasons. Though no official announcement surrounding Wood’s exit was ever given, many believe her departure was a result of the actress’ full-time role on CBS’ The Bold and The Beautiful.
Lotz was eventually cast as the new Sara and the rest is history.
