Brenda H.: OMG. Obsessed with Arrow already!!! The pilot was fantastic. I love Katie Cassidy and want her with him. Will I get my wish?
Not for a while! Katie herself tells us that the past (of Oliver/Arrow cheating on her with her sister) is not something her character will easily get over. “I have two sisters and if that happened to me I would be like, ‘No, no. I don’t want to see you ever because I might kill you!!’ Yeah, but I do think they will play around with that. I think…You can’t help who you love and I think he is the love of her life. I think she tries to forgive and she tries to see the best in everyone, even him. I do feel like there will be this sort of Dawson-Joey kind of aspect to it.” PS. Katie also admits she was a big Dawson’s fan and loves the fact that (former Dawson’s boss) Greg Berlanti is heading up her new show.
On the CW, Arrow’s debut pulled in a 1.3 rating with adults 18-49 and 4.02 million viewers, making it the network’s best premiere since The Vampire Diaries and the most-watched telecast in three years. It actually tied NBC’s showing for the hour in the demo and total viewers, a rare feat. At 9 p.m., without debate competition, Supernatural’s second episode was up to a 1.0 rating. The network averaged a very solid 1.2 rating with adults 18-49 and 3.3 million viewers.
It’s here at last the premiere of Katie’s new show Arrow on the CW and Wow, what an episode! The entire cast and not to mention the crew! really brought there A game for it and the fights just amazing. I hope that everyone enjoyed it as much as I did, I have added in over 200 HD screencaptures to the gallery, from the episode. So enjoy them all and videos will be coming very soon.
– Arrow > Season 1 > Screencaptures > 1×01 – Pilot
Two weeks ago we post the photos of Katie on Young Hollywood now we at last have the video from the interview.
The lovely Katie Cassidy returns to the Studio to chat about her role as the leading lady to Stephen Amell’s Green Arrow in The CW’s comic book adaptation, “Arrow”, and to put her own target-shooting skills to the test! She also reveals her funniest co-star, answers some Twitter questions from you the fans, and she also talks a bit about her partnership with Lady Foot Locker to benefit her favorite charity, HELP Malawi!
DC COMICS’ VILLIAN DEADSHOT SETS HIS SIGHTS ON ARROW — Oliver (Stephen Amell) is surprised when someone shoots and kills one of his targets. As his plan is to bring people to justice vs. outright killing them, Oliver doesn’t appreciate the help and searches for the gunman. He soon learns that the man, Deadshot (guest star Michael Rowe), is taking out businessmen who are scheduled to bid at an auction on an energy company and Walter (Colin Salmon) is one of the bidders. Realizing he can’t protect his family and stop Deadshot at the same time, Oliver enlists Detective Lance’s (Paul Blackthorne) help, but his plan has dire consequences. Meanwhile, Laurel (Katie Cassidy) and Tommy (Colin Donnell) get caught in an awkward situation with Oliver. Willa Holland, David Ramsey and Susanna Thompson also star. Guy Bee directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Marc Guggenheim & Andrew Kreisberg
Last week, we visited Vancouver on a press tour that included several TV show sets, including the set of the highly anticipated new CW series Arrow based on the Green Arrow comic books.
While Katie Cassidy wasn’t on set the day that we were, she still made the time to meet with us and talk a bit about her character, “Laurel Lance.”
Laurel has an interesting back story with Oliver in that the two of them, as well as their friend Tommy Merlyn, grew up together. Laurel and Oliver were also romantically involved, and then Oliver cheated on her… with her sister. And if you think that’s the only drama involved in that situation, just wait until you see the series premiere.
Fans of the comics would know Laurel as “Dinah Laurel Lance,” who, at least in printed form, became the Black Canary, crimefighting partner and eventual better half of Oliver Queen. This was not something Katie looked at when auditioning for the role.
“When I originally had auditioned for this part, I basically came up with a back story that was legitimate to the material that I was given—the pilot,” Katie recalls. “Creating back story to make this person as authentic as possible, I did a little bit of research, but I also, at that point, didn’t consider the Black Canary because I didn’t know. When – if [she becomes Black Canary] is always still a question. You never know with these writers; they could do anything. I try not to think about that at this point because I think sometimes I can get in my own way if I over-think it. I think as far as the Black Canary goes, it will probably happen very organically. I know that Laurel is very strong, very tough. She comes from a middle class family; her father’s a cop; she knows how to fight. It will be something that happens organically, and it’s probably going to be pretty cool,” she says.
At long last the CW has released gorgeous promotional photos of the entire cast of Arrow and Katie has one of her as Dinah ‘Laurel’ Lance. I hope that the CW add more photos both of Katie and the Cast soon but till then you can view the photo in HQ in are gallery.
The CW have added in a new first look featurette from Arrow, there is a new little interview with Katie were she talks about Laurel and clips but nothing we have not seen before. Caps are now in the gallery for you all I just wish the CW would add these videos in 1080p and not 360p
