Laurel may be suiting up in a new Black Canary costume, but Arrow fans be warned: The novice is far from being a hero.
Tag: Katie Cassidy (1-6 of 6)
Who killed the Canary? That’s exactly what Laurel plans to uncover as she takes steps toward becoming the Black Canary Arrow fans know from the comics.
In the wake of Sara’s (Caity Lotz) death, Laurel (Katie Cassidy) will set her sights on getting revenge, hoping to uncover the identity of the mystery man who shot three arrows into her sister’s gut. While Oliver (Stephen Amell) may not be too happy with that plan, Laurel will find help elsewhere from new addition Ted Grant (J.R. Ramirez). Will she get justice for Sara’s murder? EW caught up with Cassidy to get the scoop:
'Arrow' cast discusses finale, reveals which character the writers originally wanted to be Merlyn's child
After last night’s heart-stopping, shocking, action-packed Arrow finale, we caught up with some of the show’s stars on the red carpet at the CW Upfront to talk about what just happened, what comes next, and all things Canary.
Stephen Amell on Olicity: “Think back to what Oliver said in the sixth episode, which is, ‘Because of what we do, I can’t be with someone I could really care about,’ and I think that that remains true. So I don’t necessarily think that it was a total bait-and-switch.”
Amell on how Oliver will react to losing Thea: “Based on the fact that Oliver has lost both his mother and his father, Thea’s going to be incredibly important to him, so if she’s not what he expects, that’s going to be really difficult for him to deal with.” READ FULL STORY

Starling City is under attack in tonight’s episode of Arrow – and running is no longer an option.
With Slade’s Mirakuru army invading the entire city, everyone is forced to suit up — even Laurel, who can be seen holding a bow and arrow in tonight’s episode. “She does have it in her hands, but whether she knows how to use it or not, we’ll find out,” Katie Cassidy says with a laugh.
On the Arrow season 1 DVD, which is out today, there’s talk of what the show might do down the line with Laurel (Katie Cassidy) as Black Canary. See an exclusive clip from the extras below. But in the meantime, producers will begin the Black Canary mythology in the Oct. 9 season 2 premiere with Caity Lotz in the role. “She’s a new player in town, a vigilante who avenges wronged women and seems to have a fixation on the Arrow and our team is trying to figure out why,” exec producer Andrew Kreisberg says. (Because it’s a mystery that may take a few episodes to solve, we’d encourage you not to read that particular spoiler online. It’ll be more fun to play along.)
As for what awaits Laurel in season 2, which picks up five months after the earthquake that leveled the Glades: “Both Laurel and Oliver are dealing with the death of Tommy. Even though Tommy had broken up with her, she really feels like she betrayed Tommy by sleeping with Oliver — and certainly after Tommy died trying to save her,” Kreisberg says. “So Laurel’s energy this season early on is to try to make amends for that. Unfortunately for Oliver, that means she wants to catch the vigilante in her new job as the District Attorney. So as she and Oliver are trying to deal with their respective grief at having betrayed and lost Tommy, their hunting each other at night. It’s a new and fun dynamic for us to put them in.”
Katie Cassidy has scored the role of Dinah Laurel Lance on Arrow, The CW’s DC Comics-inspired pilot. By day, Lance is a lawyer with the City Necessary Resources Initiative. She is also the second-in-line to the Black Canary superhero mantel and former lady love of Oliver Queen, a.k.a. Green Arrow (Hung‘s Stephen Amell). Cassidy, the daughter of TV star and singer David Cassidy, previously appeared on Supernatural, Gossip Girl, and the short-lived Harper’s Island.
Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, and Andrew Kreisberg penned the pilot, which Smallville vet David Nutter directed. Arrow is one of eight dramas The CW is considering for fall 2012.
