Expect More Ricardo Diaz In ‘Arrow’ Season 7 As Kirk Acevedo Promoted To Series Regular
The Arrowverse doesn’t like to let go of its villains easily, and ‘Arrow‘s Ricardo Diaz is no exception, as Kirk Acevedo gets a series regular promotion for Season 7.
‘Arrow’ Season 7 kicks off with Oliver (Stephen Amell) behind bars, which means he is face to face with many of his former enemies, including Ben Turner/Bronze Tiger (Michael Jai White), Derek Sampson (Cody Runnels) and Danny “Brick” Brickwell (Vinnie Jones). With all three held in Slabside, Oliver will be forced to confront these and other villains he locked up while wearing the hood.
Outside of the prison, Team Arrow will come up against The Longbow Hunters (Holly Elissa, Michael Jonsson & Miranda Edwards), a legendary group of assassins recruited by Ricardo Diaz (Acevedo) to enact his revenge on Oliver and the team after they took down his burgeoning criminal empire in Season 6. A trio of villains more lethal than any the team has faced.
Before taking on the role of Diaz in ‘Arrow’, Kirk Acevedo was starring as José Ramse in ’12 Monkeys’ and Dominick Ramos in ‘Kingdom’. Prior to that, he starred as Charlie Francis in ‘Fringe’ and also popped up in shows such as ‘The Walking Dead’, ‘Person of Interest’, ‘Grimm’, and ‘Agents of SHIELD’.
‘Arrow’ Season 7 premieres on Sky One from Tuesday, 23 October 2018 at 8:00 pm
