The CW’s new DC television series Arrow has been receiving some pretty impressive reviews so far and fans have been enjoying spotting some of their favourite characters in the show. One such character who is set to appear is Helena Bertinelli aka Huntress, played by Jessica De Gouw who has been discussing the role.
De Gouw told IGN TV, “There are hints of purple in most things. Just a little dab here and there. Just to suggest the right things. But it’s definitely part of the costumes. It’s challenging for me because I play Helena and the Huntress and I have to be able to hold my own regarding the duality of the role. I have to be able to kick butt and all of that.”
Jessica also discussed the relationship between her character and Oliver Queen, adding, “There’s something very similar about them. And I think that’s where the attraction comes from. They find something they can relate to and appreciate. And I don’t think the rest of the world necessarily gets it all the time. It’s just sort of an instant recognition maybe... of something pretty cool.”
Jessica De Gouw makes her debut as Helena Bertinelli aka Huntress in tomorrow’s episode of Arrow, which will air on The CW at 8/7c. Arrow is also currently airing in the UK on Sky1 at 8pm on Monday’s.
