(KBCW/CW PHILLY) – While attending The CW Network’s 2013 Upfront Presentation at The London Hotel in New York City in May, The CW Philly caught up with “Arrow” star Katie Cassidy.
Cassidy explained how she expects how her character, Laurel will step things up and empower herself in season 2. Despite the adversities her character has to overcome, she feels that Laurel will be able to rise above and continue on her journey towards becoming a hero. When asked if Cassidy relates to her character, her response “…there’s a certain strength that I have and that I think the character has as well. She’s a very powerful woman, and I feel like it’s something internally that you have to believe in yourself and have this confidence that sort of comes off.”
Cassidy also talks about what she loves about working on the set of “Arrow,” especially the ability to use of legal jargon, more so in season 2 as she feels that Laurel will definitely be more involved in the “attorney” side of things.
