Star Wars Battlefront II will feature Arrow actor Paul Blackthorne
We already know from its recent reveal trailer that Star Wars Battlefront II will feature True Blood actress Janina Gavankar as Inferno Squad leader Iden Versio, the main character whom players will control in the game’s story campaign. Now, we know about a second high-profile actor who will be joining Gavankar: Paul Blackthorne.
Blackthorne, who is perhaps best known as detective Quentin Lance in the CW show Arrow, recently confirmed via Twitter that he will be playing a fellow Inferno Squad member named Gideon Hask. Fans were curious about Blackthorne’s involvement with Star Wars Battlefront II after he was spotted in a behind-the-scenes featurette for the game. Soon after Blackthorne’s tweet, the official Star Wars Battlefront II Twitter account confirmed his involvement as well.
Star Wars Battlefront II will launch on November 17 and, as recent reports show, it might actually forego the use of a season pass.
