Arrow scoop

by sheaes | labels: Arrow, Interview, News

Although this day is belongs to The Flash we shouldn’t forget about Arrow either, so here is some scoop from Marc Guggenheim, who was interviewed by TV Guide.

6. Nyssa is in trouble: Oliver joining the League has huge consequences for Nyssa (Katrina Law), particularly when the organization sets its sights on her in the April 29 episode. Luckily, Nyssa will have the protection of Laurel (Katie Cassidy), as well as the remaining members of Team Arrow. And through all these trials and tribulations, viewers will get to learn more about Ra’s mysterious daughter. “Not in terms of backstory, but in terms of how she reacts to things and how she’s dealing with life post-[Ra’s offer to Oliver],” said Guggenheim.

7. Team Arrow will soldier on: What is Team Arrow anymore? That is one of the questions the group will struggle with after losing Oliver and Roy. “There’s a real trinity formed between Laurel, Diggle (David Ramsey) and Felicity. And they’re all sort of leaning on each other and they’re processing things in different ways,” Guggenheim said. While Laurel distracts herself by trying to save Starling City and Felicity struggles with her grief over Oliver’s departure, the April 29 episode will “really [upend] Diggle’s world, certainly vis-a-vis Oliver,” Guggenheim said. “That’s something that will certainly have repercussions in the remainder of the season.”


Katie Cassidy Admits She’s Stubborn

by sheaes | labels: Interview, News

Question: What is one thing you can’t go without in your bag?
KC: Clinique Chubby sticks, gum, my Too Faced compact and hand sanitizer.

Question: What is your biggest pet peeve?
KC: Dirty anything.

Question: Which words or phrases do you most overuse?
KC: Stop it. You’re joking right? No. What? I gotta go…

Question: Who do you most admire?
KC: I admire many people. The qualities I admire in people are honesty, integrity, bravery, originality, ambition, self-awareness and those who are eager to learn more.

Question: If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
KC: I’m really stubborn. I believe that it has gotten me to where I am today professionally, but sometimes I wish I wasn’t so hard-headed. It can be a good quality when it comes to work, but not necessarily in my personal life.

Andrew Kreisberg: she really just got to sort of have a lark.

by sheaes | labels: Interview, News, The Flash

We already post some interview parts about how Andrew Kreisberg sees Laurel’s appearance on The Flash, here’s another:

“We have Lance and Laurel coming to ‘Flash,’ which is a lot of fun,” he said, when Access spoke to the EP at Wonder-Con. “We continue the story that Lance and Laurel are not getting along, so it doesn’t feel evergreen in that sense, but we told both of them to sort of let their angst go and enjoy the fun of being on ‘The Flash.’ In some ways it’s sort of the most fun we’ve ever seen Katie Cassidy on all these series, ’cause she really just got to sort of have a lark.”

Andew Kreisberg on Laurel’s ‘The Flash’ appearance

by Becky | labels: Interview, News, The Flash

But for fans of The FlashandArrow, and to those that understand the magnitude of Reverse Flash being the big boss villain for Season 1, it can feel as if more crossovers and team-ups are imminent. Kreisberg explained that while they wanted to make sureThe FlashandArrowcould stand on their own, the fun of making a show based on DC comics is to embrace the shared universe.

“Part of the fun of these comic book shows is comic books themselves that when you’re reading a Batman comic and you get to that last page and you turn the page and it’s a splash page of Superman who says, ‘Do you need help?’ You’re like, ‘What?! YES!’ That was so cool and to integrate that and what’s always fun, especially for us, is taking one character from a show and move them to the other because they really get to play different versions of themselves. You get to see a different side of (Det.) Lance and Laurel through the prism of a Flash episode. A more traditional storyline about fathers and daughters, which wouldn’t play well on Arrow but it plays very well on The Flash.” 

“Our tone notes to Laurel Lance was to leave all your troubles behind and have fun on Flash. You get to see her smiling and happy in sort of a different place. I think (actress) Katie (Cassidy) really appreciated that, too. When she saw the trailer, she said, ‘I look like I didn’t have a care in the world.’ Conversely, in the crossover when Caitlin and Cisco go over to Arrow, they’re not fooling around in Starling City. For us, it’s more than just gimmicks and rating stunts, it’s a new way to tell stories and in some cases, like the Laurel Lance story, it’s a way to tell the story that we would love to tell that the one show isn’t designed for but the other one is.”

Katie talking about Arrow

by sheaes | labels: Arrow, Interview, News

Recently, we did some catching up with “Arrow” star Katie Cassidy. On the show, Cassidy plays the role of Laurel Lance — assistant district attorney by day, vigilante Black Canary by night.
During the interview, Cassidy spoke on the development of her character and in doing so, gave us a few spoilers about what’s to come for the next few episodes of season 3.

Q: From Oliver cheating on Laurel with her sister, to joining him in Team Arrow, the two of them have gone through  lot. How would you describe their current relationship? Is there a chance they can rekindle their past romance?
Their current relationship is interesting. Oliver sees Laurel in an entirely different light. He sees that she has what it takes to be a “fighter” or “hero,” but she hasn’t been properly trained. Laurel is also not afraid to stand up to Oliver and stand up for what she believes in. I don’t think that Laurels current mental state is anywhere near a place of romance. That’s the last thing on her mind.

Q: How did you train yourself for your new action scenes as Black Canary?
KC: Marc Guggenheim and I agreed that in order to believe Laurels emotional and psychical transformation from season 2 to 3, my physicality would need a drastic transformation as well. I was more than ready for it. I love a challenge. I try and be as true to a character as possible. I wanted to go through the same training that Laurel would have gone through, so I had fight training, weight training and then yoga. I would say I was training three hours a day, five days a week at one point. On my off time I was watching movies with strong, bad**s female characters – think Linda Hamilton, Hillary Swank, and Angelina Jolie

Q: Without giving too much away, what can we expect from Laurel in future episodes?
KC: Laurel is becoming more badass and less whiny. She’s finally ready for whatever is coming her way. She’s a true fighter and she’ll continue to grow on many levels. Nyssa will play a big factor in that, emotionally and physically.

Katie Cassidy’s message to Aussie fans

by sheaes | labels: Arrow, Interview, Multimedia, News, TKC

Katie was in Australia last summer with her fellow co-star, John Barrowman, they were there because the duo attended a fan convetion, but before that they did an interview for Mornings9 talk show. In case you forgot about it already, just click here. There’s a “new” interview from that day, you can check it out below.

+ We added three new photos from Harper’s Bazaar shoot.

Katie Cassidy’s Style Tips

by sheaes | labels: Arrow, Gallery Update, Interview, News, TKC

“Today’s modern woman can get away with wearing a lot more,” Cassidy said. “Being sexy doesn’t necessarily mean wearing less clothing. I think it comes from a confidence you have within.”

        On starting a style blog:

      “I’ve always had a passion for fashion. Ever since I was a little girl I remember I would play dress up with my mom’s stuff. I wasn’t necessarily always going with trends, it was just always another creative outlet for me. It was just me expressing myself. And then I met my friend five years ago and she was a lawyer in Los Angeles and we both bonded over fashion. The two of us would just get together, we would hang out, we would shop and we would talk about fashion. I was more of a tomboy and she was more girly, so we balanced each other out in a really cool way. That was the creation of Tomboy KC.”

        On her personal style:

      “I like more masculine things. I shouldn’t even say masculine, I think the right word is more non-gender. I love blazers, I love sneakers. I love looking like it was effortless. If I go into my closet and I think too much, that is when I end up like a disaster. A lot of my personal style, I’ll get inspiration from men. Blazers, jackets, or whatever it may be, I’ll look at their stuff and see how I can incorporate it into my wardrobe. You just have to be able to be comfortable in your own skin. Don’t over think it.”

        On style tips she learned from her BFF and partner:

      “She taught me a lot with accessories. I would stay away from chunky necklaces and chunky earrings. She has given me insight on how to put it together. You can have a white t-shirt and be wearing a pair of leather pants and black pumps and by throwing on a big chunky necklace you give it that night feel. It was like the door was open half way and she opened the door the whole entire way, and I love it.”

        Go-to street style outfit:

      “I love ripped up jeans and a pair of sandals with a button down. Throw on a leather jacket and a chunky necklace with that. You have to be able to play. I look at my closet and think where am I going and my shoes. If I am going to wear Stuart Weitzman boots that come over your knee, I try to balance it out with what I am wearing on top. It’s about balancing it out.”

        On her festival fashion do’s:

      “I love the style, the whole vibe of Coachella. The thing about Coachella, which is great, is that you can do whatever you want, and don’t be afraid to push the envelope and just be free with your fashion and your clothing and don’t over think it. I did go one year and I embraced the hippie, cowboy style, and I had a cowboy hat and one earring that was a super long feather that blended in with my hair and it was really fun. It’s a really good time to let go and wear stuff you wouldn’t necessarily wear on a regular basis. And remember it is so hot there that you wouldn’t want to go out in anything you are going to melt in.

        On her festival fashion don’ts:

      “I personally, I don’t knock people who wear floral headbands, but I”m not for the floral or the hippie skirts. When I say I embrace the hippie side I mean I am doing cool stuff with my hair, I am wearing one earring or I’m wearing jean overalls that are short and a crop top underneath. And I embrace the jewelry. I was running around in my rag and bone boots and cut off shorts. But the whole flower thing I think is overplayed.

        On playing a superhero on “Arrow”:

      “It’s amazing. I am having a blast. To play a female role like this who is so strong, it has been a blast. I couldn’t ask for anything else. I was in hard core training for like 3 hours a day, 5 days a week. It was really hard but it was really good.”

        On her celebrity style inspirations:

      “I really like Elin King. She is a fashion icon. I like her simplicity and I like how she wears things that are clean-cut, but I also like that she has this grungy look going on. I am also a huge Kate Moss fan. For me, that’s just how I am I like stuff a little edgier. I am not afraid to push the envelope.”


‘Arrow’ Star Gushes About Costars, Talks Acting Roots, Laurel’s ‘No Fear’ Stronger Attitude

by Becky | labels: Arrow, Interview

Recently, we had the privilege of catching up with Katie Cassidy, who plays Laurel Lance — a.k.a. the Black Canary — in The CW’s popular TV Series “Arrow.” In our exclusive interview, Cassidy discusses her acting roots, past roles and her plans for the future.

1. When did you start acting?

When I was in my mother’s womb. Ha! Seriously though, I’ve always had a passion for the art. I began studying acting at the age of 8. I was in theater all through grade school and finally started working as a professional at the age of 18.

2. You come from a family of actors. How much did that influence your decision to become one?

My grandfather, Jack Cassidy, was a phenomenal actor. Followed by my uncles Shaun, Patrick & Ryan, as well as my biological father, David. I’m a third generation actor, so I suppose having a family of actors was destined to influence me in some way. I don’t feel like I consciously made the choice. I guess you can say it’s in the gene pool.

3. How did previous roles on The CW prepare you to play a character like Laurel?

I think the diversity of all characters I’ve portrayed served as ample preparation for such an emotionally complex character. That, and studying acting for almost my entire life has been extremely beneficial. It’s something that I will never stop. I believe that you can never learn too much.

4. Out of almost everyone in Team Arrow, Laurel is the least experienced. Besides physical training, what are some things she’s had to learn about being a crime fighter?

Laurel has the drive and the ambition of a fighter but you’re right, she does lack skill. At one point she doubts herself and realizes that she may never be as good as her sister. Felicity reminds Laurel that she isn’t just doing this for Sara, but she’s doing this for what she truly believes in – for the good of Starling City. Laurel is also learning that getting knocked down just builds character and only makes her stronger. She has no fear and will do whatever it takes.

5. What are some relationships that you would like to see “Arrow” further explore?

There are so many things that we could explore on Arrow! Our writers and producers are brilliant when it comes to exploring new facets of the characters relationships. I hadn’t worked much with Emily, David Ramsey or John Barrowman until this season. It has been a dream, so I am excited for the opportunity to work with them more. They are wonderful actors and so fun to be around. I’m also looking forward to working with Katrina Law more. That girl is one amazing woman and brilliant actor. She’s killing it.

6. What’s next for Katie Cassidy? What sort of roles do you want in the future?

At this point, I’m open to anything. I would love a bad ass action film or a heavy role in a dramatic film. Really anything that I am inspired by. I have also studied comedy for many years, so I think it could be kind of fun to shake things up and do something a little silly. Who knows, the world is my oyster!



On the rest of the season

by sheaes | labels: Arrow, Interview, Multimedia, News

We know after Arrow is coming back from the one-week long hiatus, there are no more stopping till the end, so here is an epic trailer for the last five episodes.

Oh you want more? There are few details we can share with you:

Lets-Comicgirl: (…) I notice Oliver has put himself on the line for Laurel many times. will the situation ever be reversed where Laurel would go to great lengths to keep Oliver/The Arrow safe?
Marc Guggenheim: Laurel will go pretty far for oliver in 3×19.

Cerealkillerita: Is there any hope for Lauryssa (Laurel+Nyssa)? It is a bit of a reach, I know, but unfortunately for me I ship everything that smiles and breathes at each other. I love everything you do!
Marc Guggenheim: Thanks! I think you’ll enjoy Ep. 3×21.

+ There will be a scene (we don’t know when) between Laurel and Felicity, where Felicity will be talking about her feelings with Laurel.
