Katie Cassidy talks ‘Arrow’ season 2, Black Canary is ‘intimidating’ role, Quentin’s death

Katie Cassidy as Laurel Arrow season 2 photoActress Katie Cassidy discusses the Arrow season 2 finale which is airing overseas. More interesting is Cassidy continuing to address her character transforming into Black Canary which is currently played by her sister Sara (Caity Lotz.)

“It’s definitely intimidating, because I want to make the fans happy,” she told TV Line. “And because of the way that I am and the way that I study my craft, I will do a ton of research. I’ll read as many of the comics as I can, bone up on Black Canary.”

Fans have to be cautious because she is not dropping a spoiler here. For now Katie plays Laurel and that is all.

“Everybody has asked me if I have done that already, but I’m not Black Canary at this point, so no, I don’t want to get ahead of myself.”

“I need to be true to the moment and what my character’s state of the mind is. So as soon as, and if, and when that happens, yes, I definitely will try to portray her in the best way possible.”

Additionally she said: “Obviously, getting involved in Team Arrow and taking her through this alter ego, if she does. I mean the jacket fits, but I’m not the writers. But I think I’m excited for her to fight, kick some ass,” said Cassidy during the interview, as reported by Classicalite.

The possible fatal injury to their father, played by Paul Blackthorne, is a more relevant topic.

“It would be devastating, because they’re very close. He’s the closest thing to her. I definitely think it would be a difficult thing for her, but come on, Laurel’s gone through so much. If anybody could deal with it, it’d be her,” revealed Cassidy in the same interview.
