The actress on her Felicity's popularity and whether she could learn to fight.
Introduced in what could have been a one-off guest appearance, Emily Bett Rickards quickly became an increasingly popular presence on Arrow as Felicity Smoak. Soon, Felicity was part of Oliver Queen’s inner circle, assisting him in his crime-fighting, and Rickards herself was upgraded to a series regular for Season 2.
Last month, with Arrow having recently gone back into production, I spoke to Rickards about the evolution of Felicity and where Season 2 finds her and her allies.
Oh, and for those wondering, we did this interview the night before it was announced that The Flash was coming to Arrow this season, hence me not asking about it.
