Katrina Law is an American actress. She is best known for playing the roles of Mira (a slave in the house of Batiatus) in the Starz television series, Spartacus: Blood and Sand and Spartacus: Vengeance, and Nyssa al Ghul on The CW television series, Arrow.

Personal life[edit]

Law was born in Deptford, New Jersey. Her mother is Taiwanese and her father is German and Italian descent. She was crowned Miss New Jersey Teen USA in 1995.[1] She has been married to fellow actor Keith Andreen since 2013.[2]

Career[edit]

Law worked alongside director Adrian Picardi with producers Eric Ro and Don Le, to create a low budget web series called The Resistance.[3] Picardi was the series' official creator and director. The show was later picked up by Starz which led to Law's casting in Spartacus: Blood and Sand in 2009.[4]

In 2011, Law completed an action-oriented project called "3 Minutes" with director Ross Ching, producers Don Le and George Wang, starring Harry Shum, Jr., Stephen "tWitch" Boss (the runner up on season 4 of Fox's So You Think You Can Dance), and herself.[1][5]
