Arrow was considered by many as a bit of a gamble by The CW but that has really paid off, as the shows has proven to be a huge success. One of the stars of Arrow is the attractive super-nerd Felicity Smoak, who is played by Emily Bett Rickards and Emily has revealed how she prepared for the role.
Rickards explained to ComicBookMovie, “Well, when I found out I got the role I wasn’t aware that I was auditioning for Felicity Smoak. It was under the name of Karen Beecher who comes from Teen Titans, if I’m not mistaken.
She added, “When I found out she was nerdy and super-smart, getting to know her and getting to know her character was looking into the DC Comics world and channeling that sort-of awkward ability that I think is ingrated in every one thing and finding her little ticks and buttons and knowing how her brain works systematically.”
As well as starring Emily Bett Rickards, Arrow also stars Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy and Willa Holland. Arrow is is currently in its first season but was recently renewed for a second run by The CW. You can catch the next episode of Arrow tomorrow (February 13) on The CW at 8/7c.
