Are we ready for Black Canary? Hell yes.
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.”
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 News: Congratulations on the renewal! What does it mean to you to know that this cool job of yours is going to keep going?
Speaking of the family, tell me what it means for your character to be without Oliver this season.
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?
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.
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.
Katie’s last day was quite busy, we let you know why: first she attended TCA Winter Press Tour with Arrow colleagues and The Flash cast to do a press conference for Arrow. After that she did her first appearance at 72nd Golden Globes with Dana Brunetti, but this is for later.
