Nicholas Lea, best known for his roles on X Files and Supernatural, was recently cast in season 2 of Arrow. Lea will appear in episodes 12 and 13 as Mark Francis, a close associate of Walter Steel. According to TV Line, the site that originally broke the news, Francis will “play a huge part in changing the life of a Queen family member, and has a crucial role in the surprising twist that Moira’s life will take after her murder trial.”
It’s important to note that there is currently no “Mark Francis” in the DC Comics mythology. With such a familiar face to fans of “genre” television, as Lea has also had major roles on series’ such as Kyle X/Y and Continuum, it’s entirely possible that Francis is just a cover name for some other big-time character from the comics.
