Harper is kid who comes from the ‘wrong-side’ of Starling City’s tracks, working day and night to care for his mother, a drug addict.
When the news broke that Haynes would be taking on the role last fall, it was announced that he was poised to serve as a love interest for Thea (Willa Holland) and was “destined to become a significant part of her life and an important player in the larger world of Arrow.”
Haynes joins Emily Bett Rickards (who portrays Oliver’s IT whiz Felicity Smoak) as series regular for Arrow’s second season.
