Well what a weekend it was for me, As you have read I was at Heroes & Villains Fan Fest in London last weekend and got to meet are girl three times over the two days and watch her a bit to, I do no that there were a lot of fan’s of other actors (guess what one) talking bad about her but my own experience with her and from watching her Katie was nothing but polite and friendly to all her fan’s. Katie was a little bit late on day one not getting there till after 11am but when right into autos till it was time for her photoshoots then back to autos again till the end of the day. On day two again she was late till time coming in at after 12pm her own video said she had a conference call she had to take, when she got there again it was right into autos for a time till her panel with Emily Bett Rickards and Josh Segarra at 1.15 but it did not start till 1.30 so we only got 30 mins of the panel. I was sitting in the 6th row right at the end so got great view of the panel and took a lot of photos from it and a video. In the panel the MC said about Katie coming back for season 6 and Katie did a little bit of talking about it saying “I’ve been very transparent about the whole thing: I didn’t want to leave” and Emily saying about how the show has not been the same with out Katie “There was a definite vacancy when you left and it was not the same and that’s why you had to come back. No one could replace you”, Josh as well had nothing but great things to say about Katie. Josh as well did a bit of salsa dancing with the girls and it was amazing to watch Katie and Emily interact with each other they both love each other. After the panel Katie when of for photoshoots and then back for autos till 4pm when she when home. I have to sat HVFF is one of the best and well run cons I have been to in a very long time so much better then COH2 last year that was just HELL ON EARTH and I will be back there next year when they come back and I hope Katie will come again. I have added all my own candids of Katie at the autos and panel into the gallery as well as others from the weekend, Enjoy!
From The Panel

# She enjoys going to the crossovers too because it means a change of scenery and she get’s new people to play with.
# kaity said we will learn more about Black Siren next season and her backstory and that redemption is definitely possible.
# Katie, Josh and Kirk she how much the cast look after each over on set and help were they can.
# Katie said Laurel’s death scene was very hard for her to film and the rest of the cast were all there for her.
# When talking about Laurel’s season 1 to 3 journey fun being the lawyer to hitting rock bottom to becoming the black Canary they after that her story was done and although she was in the scenes there was nothing much for her to do anymore and for her to grow the character but now she is the villain it offers her more material to work with and to play about more.
# The cast misheard a man’s name and thinking he said “Lance” Katie told him “be careful, the Lances don’t have the best of luck” when told his real name she then said “it’s ok then your safe”
# When asked about Laurel being the one in the grave, Katie said at first She thought no one was going to be in it, and was just a ploy from the writers, but then she got the called about it being her in it she said “It sucked when I found out I was the one in the grave”.
# She thanked the fan’s for getting her back on the show with all the fan’s outrage over it.
# When asked about her Earth X character and the unrequited love between herself and Oliver Katie said she did known about it but that was all she was saying.
# When Kirk was asked about the romanetes between Diaz and Laurel he said they could have had “some little screaming babies” to which Katie said he killed her father so it’s a no from her.
# She said she has fun this season but felt the cabin episode (6×14 – Collision Course) was her Turning Point with a character arc and getting to dive into more on a storyline, as before that it was frustrating for her just to come in and scream then go away.
# When a little boy came up to ask if Black Siren’s powers would affect him if he took his hearing aids out she said “You Keep them in, they are your superpower” then jumped off the stage to give the little boy a hug, then helped him back to his seat.
# Katie said it was just so freeing to play a villain and loved she could get away with all the evilness.
