Emily Bett Rickards Discusses ARROW

Fan favorite actress Emily Bett Rickards discusses her role in the CW's Arrow and what's in store for her character, Felicity Smoak going forward. What do you guys think, would you like to see 'Olicity' happen?





Speaking to TV Guide, the talented and lovely Emily Bett Rickards discusses her role in the CW's number one show, Arrow.

On Felicity Smoak's role in the group.
Emily Bett Rickards: Rickards: It creates a certain dynamic that was different from what Olivier and Diggle had because she's the polar opposite of Diggle in a sense that she hasn't seen anyone die and this isn't actually her regular day job. Her role now is to help them solve different crimes in Starling City as well as creating a different balance to the group that the audience, and Olivier and Diggle, will enjoy as well. She's got that awkward, quirky spunk. As much as she's socially inadequate, she's always so gung-ho to hack into something. She's really smart. I find her emotional depth and her emotional capacity interesting because she's so socially awkward.

On fan reactions and the hope that Smoak and Oliver will become a couple.
EBR: Yes, Olicity, I think it is. [Laughs] It's hard to say if there's going to be a love interest/crush/relationship, but the relationship definitely starts to change. Oliver has a lot of walls, but with the biggest wall down and that secret out there — even though he still has secrets from everyone — it allows Felicity to see Oliver more clearly. Now they can be a little bit more open with each other and that's bound to change something in their relationship.

On the return of The Huntress and where they places Smoak in the group dynamic.
EBR: How the Huntress comes back is a really fun and interesting episode. It's very action-packed. It was such a fun episode to shoot. I think Felicity is questioning her. She doesn't really understand who The Huntress is or where she came from. How does she know and I didn't know about her?! There's also the underlying fear because The Huntress is very intimidating.

Catch Arrow Wednesday at 8pm PST/EST on The CW.
