Katie Cassidy talks Capital One, Heroes & Villains, PS4

fansided.com – FanSided had an opportunity to speak with Arrow star Katie Cassidy about her Capital One partnership, meeting fans at conventions, and PS4’s Hidden Agenda.
FanSided recently met up with Katie Cassidy to discuss her new Capital One partnership, meeting fans at Nashville’s Heroes & Villains Convention this weekend, and her first role in a PlayStation 4 game in Hidden Agenda.

FanSided.com – Nir Regev: What made you want to be part of this Capital One bank partnership?
Katie Cassidy: The campaign felt like a great marriage with the idea of a financial super hero and me playing a super hero on television … And a super villain! I think part of it was Capital One learning about my story. There’s a bit of a misconception when people think about me because I come from this family of entertainers. People assume that this career was given to me, served to me. It was actually quite the opposite; I didn’t meet my father until I was in fourth grade. At 18, my biological father and I, we became friends. He was a good person to talk to for advice, career wise.

When I was 17-18, he said, “If you want to act, that’s great. But we’re not going to help you. You’re on your own if you want to move out.” I was pissed then because I was 17-18 and probably just a rebellious girl. So, I was like, “Okay fine. He’s out.” I left home, and I still think back to that era. There were only one or two times that I ever actually asked my mother to buy me groceries. I had to learn things on my own. I see myself as The Balanced Optimist, on my super hero financial side.

I learned how to balance a checkbook on my own, and I think that’s what awesome about this Capital One campaign. They’re bringing people together to talk about what is normally an uncomfortable topic. They have money coaches who are also really like life coaches. They’re professionals that can really guide your financial dreams, and it’s great to have that base all over the nation.

FS: You’re going to be at the Heroes and Villains Convention in Nashville this weekend. What does it mean to you as an actress to get to meet fans of your characters?
Katie Cassidy: It’s incredible! I love doing the conventions! It’s so cool when I get to meet fans in-person and get real face-to-face time. It occured to me recently when I was coming out of an interview that to fans I’m like the stewardess of the character, almost. Like a middleman. Their connection through me is the closest thing to the character, and it’s a big role. Big shoes to fill! We have the best fans in the world, such loyal, awesome people. I love it!

FS: Last year, you got to be the lead in your first PlayStation game, Hidden Agenda. What was the experience like? Would you do it again?
Katie Cassidy: It was awesome! Would I do it again, YES! I’m a total geek when it comes to gaming. I totally geeked out when I got to play Becky (Marney) in Hidden Agenda. I love playing Call of Duty, I play online on Twitch sometimes. I’m into Destiny, Uncharted, I got to play the new one (The Lost Legacy) recently with the two badass chicks. I started back in the day with Mortal Kombat and Duke Nukem. I love games!

‘Arrow’s Katie Cassidy Teases Massive, Insane Season 6 Finale

comicbook.com – In just a matter of days, Arrow fans will be treated to the show’s sixth season finale, and it sounds like it will be quite a doozy.

ComicBook.com’s Brandon Davis recently got a chance to chat with Arrow star Katie Cassidy during last weekend’s Heroes and Villains FanFest Nashville. When asked about the upcoming season six finale, “Life Sentence”, Cassidy hinted that it’s truly a spectacle.

“Oh gosh! I can’t tell you!” Cassidy exclaimed. “It’s all of the things. It’s all of the things, and then leaving you hanging. It’s huge. It’s massive. It’s insane. I don’t know how we shoot this show. I’ve been doing this for fifteen years, but I don’t know how we shoot a movie every 9 days.”

While a lot of the season finale is currently a mystery, it sounds like the fight against Ricardo Diaz (Kirk Acevedo) could take some interesting turns. For one thing, the finale will reportedly see the departure of Paul Blackthorne, who has played Quentin Lance since the show’s inception.

“I love Paul so much.” Cassidy explained. “He’s such an incredible actor and person. He and I got really close, I think he would probably say I was the closest one to him. So, he’s gone, but I mean…is he really gone?”

“It’s sad, it really is.” It makes me sad because we all worked so hard for so long. It just kinda sucks when it’s like…He’s an OG. He was there from day one, I was there from day one, with Stephen, David, and Willa… Let’s hope that there’s a way to work him back in.”

And the finale will also include an appearance of Arrow alum and Legends of Tomorrow star Caity Lotz, who Cassidy was excited to share a scene with again.

“She’s just a breath of fresh air.” Cassidy revealed. “She really is like a sister to me. She and I are living together next year. Yeah, it’s great. She’s awesome. I love working with her.”

Paul Blackthorne Talk’s About Katie

tvline.com – Reflecting on his Season 6 arc, Blackthorne said “it was interesting to play” Quentin’s interactions with dead daughter Laurel’s Earth-Two doppelgänger, who for a stretch there, as the meta-powered Black Siren, helped Diaz terrorize Star City.

“It was kind of a mind-screw, the whole thing, in terms of who she was, reconciling that new relationship, and him trying to find hope in her and everything that she had gone through and become,” the English actor shared.

“All those scenes with Katie [Cassidy], it was a lot of fun,” he continued. “We’ve had six years of playing all that stuff, and it’s been a real, real treat. It’s a shame to see that go, but it’s wonderful to be in this new place now.”
