ARROW's Jessica de Gouw Teases The Huntress' On-Screen Costume

In a recent interview with KSiteTV on the set of The CW's upcoming crime drama Arrow (based on DC Comics' Green Arrow), Jessica de Gouw teases what Helena Bertinelli's Huntress costume will look like on-screen...

For some time, it's been known that Jessica de Gouw would portray Helena Bertinelli A.K.A The Huntress on The CW's Arrow alongside Stephen Amell. However, we do not know if her costume will be faithful to the comics, as fans have lost faith in televised heroes after Smallville had changed plenty of appearances. However, in an interview with KSiteTV in Vancouver, Jessica gives us a short tease on how she will appear.

"“There are hints of purple in most things. Just a little dab here and there, just to suggest the right things, but it’s definitely part of her costume, certainly."

"“You will see [me in full costume]! It’ll be great, whatever you get to see. It will be fabulous. I promise you. I’ve seen it, so I can promise it’s really something. That’s all you’re getting."

You can read plenty more from Jessica including where she draws inspiration from for the role, Helena's relationship with Oliver and more over at KSiteTV.

That's good to hear
KingG - 9/26/2012, 11:27 AM
Looking forward to it. Would love to see HUNTRESS on screen.
KingG - 9/26/2012, 11:27 AM
grif, everything's shit to you isn't it?
Ceejay - 9/26/2012, 11:29 AM
She looks like a bloody fresh faced, Jane avergae college student, that's the best they could do?
KingG - 9/26/2012, 11:31 AM
Ceejay, wow that was mean, you really don't like her.
jimpinto24 - 9/26/2012, 11:32 AM
That is good to hear. As long as Marc & Andrew stay true to The Huntress character. I'm ready Arrow!
Ceejay - 9/26/2012, 11:36 AM
Taylor Cole, who played the relentlessly ass-kicking Vicky Roberts in the cancelled tv show, The Event. Now that's more like it..

OptimisticPrime - 9/26/2012, 11:43 AM
Grif's a troll. Never believe him.
Ceejay - 9/26/2012, 11:44 AM
@KingG - Maybe, but the intensity of Helena Bertinelli is not aboout just putting on a scowl over a pretty face. The eyes and features have to convey that in whoever they cast and this girl just doesn't have it..

Taylor Cole however does in abundance especially if you ever seen her in action in The Event! Check it out..

All i wanna know is if Deadshot will wear his costume.

aurorsand147 - 9/26/2012, 11:49 AM
@ceejay, she could be good. Emilia Clarke was fresh out of drama school when she landed the role of Daenerys Targaryen.
but then again that is Game of Thrones and this is CW's show.
mr2324jgf - 9/26/2012, 11:52 AM
I'm with grif.... shit show, shit actress, shit huntress, all shit
Ceejay - 9/26/2012, 11:59 AM
aurorasand147 - True but Emilia Clarke had the fresh face of innocence to pull of playing the initially very young (supposed to be in her mid teens) and naive Daenerys Targaryen. All they had left to do was dye her hair!

This girl has a face of innocence for a character that is the total opposite and long kissed goodbye to her teen years! That is unless they're presenting this to another teen audience like Smallville all over again.. meh!
nowtheresaBATman - 9/26/2012, 12:01 PM
Right on Ceejay great point Taylor Cole would be waaaaay better for Huntress.

nowtheresaBATman - 9/26/2012, 12:03 PM
sorry Kids this show will suck. It might be better than Smallville though which wouldn't be tough.
LP4 - 9/26/2012, 12:09 PM
@AlexLynch- I know that they said it will be a more faithful version of Deadshot than what Smallville did to him. But in another interview Marc Guggenheim said Deadshot's comicbook suit is too "flamboyant" and they needed to alter it and make it more "grounded"
mrHJK - 9/26/2012, 12:12 PM
This show is going to be awful. You're all going to wish Smallville would come back.
AtomicChipmunk - 9/26/2012, 12:18 PM
That's the kind of teasing the creative team of smallville used to do.

Expect something shitty.

Shit show.
AtomicChipmunk - 9/26/2012, 12:19 PM
Huntress belongs with the Bat-family.

Stop [frick]ing up characters CW!

KnobGoblin - 9/26/2012, 12:35 PM
So, it's purple, and it's fabulous. Good to know, that was very informative.
edwardshiro - 9/26/2012, 12:40 PM
Taylor Cole as Wonder Woman
Gromblidor - 9/26/2012, 1:25 PM
It's a CW tv show, need I say more? It's gonna be geared towards the teeny boppers just like every other shit show on the station. Smallville = sucks! Stop wasting money on live action crap and start spending money on better animation like they did with Green Lantern tas and Young Justice.
LP4 - 9/26/2012, 1:42 PM
They r gonna pull the same crap Smallville pulled and introduce shitloads of characters but water them down immensely.
lokibane2012 - 9/26/2012, 2:30 PM
Can't wait for this show to crash and burn.
Pooh - 9/26/2012, 2:58 PM
I was a big fan of the Birds of Prey comic book (Gail Simone).

DDD - 9/26/2012, 3:25 PM
I don't know how people can debase something before they
even see it?

I'm going to reserve my judgement until I've at least seen

Prejudging is SHIT, that's what's SHIT!

thatdylhooper - 9/26/2012, 3:51 PM
Hey grif, why don't u get into the industry? Write ur own shit, bet its fucing terrible
J619SD - 9/26/2012, 4:36 PM
Grif is shit.
J619SD - 9/26/2012, 4:42 PM
@CeeJay Terrible actress on a terrible show.
LP4 - 9/26/2012, 5:24 PM
@AlexLynch- Kamenrider was referring to Deathstroke not Deadshot
Pooh - 9/26/2012, 5:47 PM
@grif, Not liking the new avatar
Pooh - 9/26/2012, 5:49 PM
@grif, I'm think I'm going to be reading mr2324jgf. He has a cooler icon.
Bartman87 - 9/26/2012, 6:07 PM
Well I can't wait for the show too much shit on right now all the trailers look pretty good I'm not as die hard fanatic as some of you about the characters and grew up with the 70's Capt. America and Spider-man
KingLing - 9/26/2012, 7:19 PM
@KingG, you must be new here. Yes, Grif doesn't like anything, but he's our special little troll. Though I miss the teddy bear icon.
LP4 - 9/26/2012, 7:46 PM
@KingLing- I [frick]ing LOVED Grif's teddy bear icon. That coupled with his "shit" posts just always made him seem like an angry little teddy. The most adorable thing ever.

XavierLehnsherr - 9/26/2012, 8:55 PM
Grif obviously LOVES SHIT.

He's always one of the first in the topics.

He's like a fly on shit.
XavierLehnsherr - 9/26/2012, 8:58 PM
Grif LOVES shit.

I'm looking forward to Arrow and seeing all the DC characters they are using in the show. Maybe I don't expect much from the CW, but if Arrow is more like Nikita than Smallville in tone, we may be happily surprised.
