What next on Arrow

The upcoming episode is 3×12, Uprising.

MALCOLM MAKES AN OFFER TO HELP TEAM ARROW — Still operating without Oliver and desperate to stop Brick (guest star Vinnie Jones), Team Arrow is forced to consider Malcolm’s offer to help shut Brick down as Malcolm has a personal score to settle with the felon. Roy and Laurel point out that the team could use some help to save the innocents of The Glades, but Felicity is adamantly against it. They look to Diggle to make the final decision. Meanwhile, the flashbacks chronicle Malcolm’s descent from kind-hearted father and husband to cold-blooded killer after the murder of his wife.

Recent interviews

sheaes | Arrow, Interview, News

“I can’t tell you how happy it made me,” Cassidy gushes to EW. “I remember at the end of season 2, they needed to fit Sara’s [Caity Lotz] jacket on me and I started to cry when I put it on. I’ve been waiting for this for so long. I’m so happy and honored.

- EW

ET Online: Looking ahead a few weeks, Caity Lotz is back in “Canaries”! At this moment, Laurel is feeling the effects of vertigo and having hallucinations about her sister. What is that experience like for her and do we learn anything illuminating?
Cassidy: It’s a big wake-up call for her. I was so excited to have Caity Lotz back, she’s a wonderful actress and a great person, and you’ll get to see the Canaries in action. I think people are going to be excited and thrilled. It’s kind of jaw-dropping – I remember reading the episode [script] and going “Holy shit! This is crazy!” (Laughs.) This is one of my personal favorites thus far, and it was a blast to shoot. I’m looking forward to more.

- ET Online

“I wake up at 5 a.m. and go to the gym and work with my trainer as I go to work and it has taken a lot out of me but every single moment has been worth it because I live for it. I love it.”

- ComicBook

Cassidy teases that during the rest of the season, Laurel will learn to don the mask for her own reasons, not just for revenge or to keep her sister’s memory alive.
“She goes from avenging her sister to honoring or sister to then becoming her sister,” says Cassidy. “Then she goes to doing it for the right reasons, from something within her. You see in later episodes somebody alluding to that and it makes Laurel have that realization, that she’s not just doing this to be her sister. It’s inside of her and she has the capability to tap into that.”

- The Hollywood Reporter

“The best part is that, in all reality what now, if anyone wanted to mess with me on a daily basis, as Katie Cassidy, in real life, I can defend myself and probably kick some ass.”

- Collider

CBR: Lastly, comic book readers are well aware of certain cornerstones associated with Black Canary. She possesses the Canary Cry. She becomes a founding member of the Birds of Prey. She also gets brutally beaten in the “Green Arrow: The Longbow Hunters” miniseries. Which arc would you like the writers to explore?
: Personally, I feel we do a really good job at tipping our hats to the comics and making the fans happy. Our writers are so brilliant and amazing. They will figure out how to serve justice to all of those storylines, whether it be in the same form or not, such as the Canary Cry. Will we see it? I’m assuming yes, but in what form we see it, I have no idea. In some way, in some capacity, they will fulfill all of those storylines.



The Producers Guild Of America Awards

What next on Arrow

Are we ready for Black Canary? Hell yes.

SUIT UP — Arsenal (Roy Harper) and Diggle confront Laurel (Katie Cassidy) about trying to step into her sister’s shoes and warn her to stop before she gets herself killed. However, when Brick (guest star Vinnie Jones) kidnaps the city’s Aldermen and threatens to kill them all unless the police evacuate The Glades, it’s all suits on deck. Meanwhile, Ray (Brandon Routh) steps in to help Lance and the police force fight Brick, showing Felicity a new side of her boss. Malcom (John Barrowman) tells Thea that Ra’s al Ghul is after him and his family and they must leave town immediately.

How Katie helped with the BC costume

sheaes | Arrow, Interview, News

Katie Cassidy, who has her own fashion blog, Tomboy KC, tells E! News how she helped to create the Black Canary’s look.

“It was so cool. I love the creative process. Not just being an actor and here is the dialogue and saying the lines,” Cassidy says of working with the wardrobe department. “I like collaborating with people and having an opinion and getting to put my touch on it. So when it came to the costume, I suggested a couple of things. I give credit to our insanely talented hair (Paul Edward) makeup, (Danielle Fowler) and wardrobe (Maya Mani) team for creating the look. I just made a few suggestions.”
Some of her tweaks? Some lace and fishnet (“Because the Black Canary wore fishnets,” Cassidy explains) fabric added throughout the costume, including the bodysuit underneath the jacket and the fingerless gloves.
“So it’s a bit more feminine, because the suit itself it’s sexy, but it is a bit modern. And I love it. That’s what I wanted,” she tells us. “So I was like, Let’s see where we can put a little bit of feminine touches. Because it’s a very strong suit, how can we make this a little bit more feminine?”

And Cassidy reveals she was even more involved when it came to the Black Canary’s hair and make-up. Arrow tested out five looks, the first of which “they let me do whatever I wanted.

I wanted a dark red lip and dark red nail color. I like the fact that it’s dark; I also think it’s more feminine. And I want the nail to match the lip,” she says, adding that she asked them not to black out her eyes, which almost all of the other heroes on the show do.

As for Laurel’s sleeker, platinum blonde wig, Cassidy explains, “I begged them, ‘Please don’t make me wear a curly blonde wig.’ Because the Canary had that and I just wanted Laurel to be more sharp and modern. Sexy, but smart. Just strong.”

And while the producers originally didn’t go for her preferred look, Cassidy says, “We went in and pled our case, and were like, ‘Look, it’s a masculine outfit. This face and hair make it a bit more feminine.’ It’s pretty, I thought it looked the best. So Marc [Guggenheim], Andrew [Kreisberg] and Greg [Berlanti] decided to go with it, which was great.”

As for the other essential part of the Black Canary’s overall look, the infamous “Canary Cry,” Cassidy teases Laurel definitely has one, but “what form it comes out in, I’m not going to say.”

CBR: Black Canary

sheaes | Arrow, Interview, News

Just as CBR News was sitting down with the actress to take about Laurel Lance’s long-awaited transformation from crusading D.A. into the full-blown superhero Black Canary (assuming the role from her late sister Sara), even more glad tidings came Cassidy’s way as she learned that “Arrow” had just been renewed for a fourth season.

To say Cassidy was in an upbeat mood was an understatement, especially after having the thrilling prospect of becoming TV’s incarnation of comics superstar Black Canary — first dangled before her by the producers when she first entertained the notion of joining the series two and a half seasons ago — finally came to pass, as she reveals in her chat with CBR.

Left Behind

CBR News: Congratulations on the renewal! What does it mean to you to know that this cool job of yours is going to keep going?
Katie Cassidy: I love it! I mean, we have such a wonderful cast and such a wonderful group of people — honestly, you become a family. I’m so happy and grateful and lucky to be working with everyone.

Speaking of the family, tell me what it means for your character to be without Oliver this season.
On January 21, you will see Laurel in the suit and becoming Black Canary — but just because she suited up doesn’t necessarily mean she’s good, first of all. But it’s part of her journey. In Season Three, she goes from avenging her sister’s death, to honoring to her sister, to basically becoming her sister, but her own version of it. And she really steps up to the plate, I think. Now that Oliver’s gone, [she] takes the reins and is like, “I got this.” She’s a strong woman, and I think she’s going to kick some butt.

Your costume’s been a long time coming. From the beginning of the series, everybody wondered if, when, how? So what did it mean for you to finally get to this point?
Yeah, I mean, it’s truly an honor. When I originally sat down and met with Greg [Berlanti] and Mark [Guggenheim] and Andrew [Kreisberg], they pitched me the characters attached to the show. And they had said Black Canary, and I was, like, over the moon. I wanted to do something action-packed. I thought that was great. And then it’s television — anything can happen. But Season Two, obviously, they brought my sister back, and she was the Canary. It was disappointing at first, but they explained to me, and it really made sense.
I’m actually happy that it worked out this way because they were like, “You can’t just come become a hero overnight. You have to earn it.” Oliver was on an island for five years. Laurel can’t just all of a sudden wake up one day, put on the suit and turn into the Black Canary. She has to earn it. I feel as though Season Two, she really hit rock bottom, and the writers really wrote for me, which I totally appreciate. She’s earning it. She’s training. She’s fighting. She’s following her heart, and she’s going out there on the streets. She’s doing what she believes in.

IGN: Katie on Laurel as Black Canary

Becky | Arrow, Interview, News

Arrow is set to return after an eventful mid-season finale, with Starling City down their vigilante savior Oliver Queen – for now. There to step into that void will be Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) who will be making her debut as Black Canary.

IGN had the opportunity to sit down with Cassidy to talk about what we can expect from her take on the iconic character, as well as the tensions that will arise as she comes into contact with Malcolm Merlyn, Thea, Arsenal, and Team Arrow.

Left Behind

IGN TV: So let’s dive right into the suit.
Katie Cassidy: The suit!

IGN: It looks amazing. Is it comfortable?
Cassidy: Yes. Shockingly, yes. [Laughs]

IGN: How has felt for you after all this time to finally be suiting up and diving into this aspect of the character?
Cassidy: Honestly, it’s everything I’ve ever wanted. I waited a long time to get to this place. I’m just so grateful and so happy. The writers have been so good to me. It was a long time coming, but I think it was well worth the wait. As with every superhero, you have to earn it. You can’t have a character turn into a superhero over night. So Laurel had to hit her rock bottom before she came out on top. Yes, on January 21st you’ll see me in the costume, but that doesn’t necessarily mean I’m good — yet. She’s still learning, still training. She still has a long way to go. But she’s driven, and she’s fearless. Seeking vengeance for her sister is what’s moving her.

The 72nd Golden Globes

sheaes | Gallery Update, News

Well, finally it happened. Our very own Katie Cassidy was at the 72nd Golden Globes with producer, Dana Brunetti. She was stunning. She wore a Mikael D’s black and white evening dress. Her dress was divisive because some website listed hers among Worst Dresses, and others among Best Dresses. We think she looked absolutely gorgeous. After the ceremony they attended an after party, too. So like we said earlier, her day was busy.

  • Laurel’s Black Canary mask has her between a rock and a hard place.
    It’s no secret that to avenge the death of her sister, Laurel’s taking up her mask to join the vigilante brigade. But what does that mean for her relationship with daddy dearest, Detective Lance, who still thinks Sara’s alive, well and fighting crime? “It puts Laurel in a really difficult, tough position. Being Laurel and Lance being aware that Black Canary is back on the street. He’s going to Laurel and saying ‘how can I get a hold of your sister?’ She doesn’t know how to tell him. what to tell him,” revealed Cassidy during a post-panel scrum. She added, it won’t be Oliver or Team Arrow members that she runs to for help. “She actually goes to Nyssa to get advice and asks her what she thinks. But what she decides to do…?”
  • “I’ve been waiting for this to happen and I’m obviously very excited and thrilled about it,” Cassidy said. “They told me this is where the character was going before we even shot the pilot. But every character has to go through a journey and you can’t just become a superhero. In Season 2, [Laurel] definitely hit rock bottom and then she lost her sister. She’s going from avenging her sister, to honoring her sister to becoming her sister.”
