Of all the DC universe characters poised to return for the Arrowverse crossover "Crisis on Infinite Earths," Birds of Prey star Ashley Scott is perhaps one of the most surprising.
Scott portrayed Helena Wayne, aka Huntress, on the short-lived series that ran on The WB for a single season. In an Instagram post, Scott reflected on donning the familiar costume -- which former co-star Rachel Skarsten confirmed was the same from the original series -- nearly 20 years later and thanked the fans for keeping the character alive.

Just to add a little more WONDER-full to the mix... Look what I was doing exactly 3 years ago to the day... Hiking under The Huntress moon. Today, was an extremely emotional day. I Slide my hands into her leather coat, Laced up her corset, adorned in her jewelry, I looked into Helena’s eyes again after almost 20 years. She is bold, she is wise and she is fierce... I feel swells of energy, knowing the fans that so loved our show will get to see her again. It is absolutely one of the greatest pleasures in my life to have been gifted with playing her the first time and now that has deepened beyond my own understanding. Here’s to you Huntress and to the devout fans that have kept you alive and well. Prrrrrrrfect 🦇 #birdsofprey #thehuntress #crisisoninfiniteearths #dccomics #dcuniverse
