Ever since it was announced a month ago that Megalyn Echikunwoke would be bringing her animated DC character Mari McCabe, aka Vixen, to life on Arrow, we’ve been wondering what the actress would look like as her live-action counterpart.

Now we know, thanks to a tweet by Arrow star Stephen Amell.

In the pic below, we see Amell and Echikunwoke — the actress has been voicing the titular character on The CW Seed’s cartoon web series Vixen this summer, and the show officially set in the Arrowverse has been renewed for a second season — side by side and posing for the camera. The only downside is that we only get to see her from the neck up. Check it out:

Echikunwoke, who will appear in the 15th episode of Season 4, titled “Taken,” once said about playing a live-action version of her animated character, “I think if it does end up being live action in any way, it's really cool that I have this warm-up into the character and I really can create my own version of Vixen.” This Arrow episode will air on Feb. 24 on The CW.
