‘Gossip Girl’ Alum Katie Cassidy on Blake Lively’s Marriage: ‘Who Doesn’t Want to Marry Ryan Reynolds?’ (VIDEO)
Speaking with Celebuzz on the carpet Friday at Entertainment Weekly’s pre-Emmy party at Fig & Olive in Beverly Hills she laughed and said, “Who doesn’t want to marry Ryan Reynolds? Hello! Just being realistic.”
She continued, “It’s awesome. She’s hot. Two Beautiful people.”
Arrow will be Cassidy’s third show on the youth-skewing network having previously appeared on the hit Gossip Girl and the cancelled too soon remake of Melrose Place.
So how is she feeling about Arrow so far?
“It’s awesome. It’s a lot of action. It’s fun. I can’t believe that I am lucky enough to be a part of a show like this,” revealed Cassidy, 25.
“I watch what happens in front of me, and I’m like this is something that you are supposed to be doing while making a movie. Why is this happening in front of me this is nuts? So it’s fun. It’s crazy, and a lot of work. Everyone has the same vision which I think is very important regardless of whether you are making TV or film. Its been really, really good.”
The actress told us that fans can definitely expect a lot of drama and action in the forthcoming comic-book show. Cassidy plays Laurel Lance on Arrow. With the return of her cheating ex-boyfriend, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), to the world after he was shipwrecked on an island for five years, she needs to learn to readjust to his presence in Starling City. However, she doesn’t yet know about his alter ego, Arrow, which Queen embodies in an effort to bring justice to their city.
Of the romantic entanglements involved she says, “There’s definitely a love triangle that’s going on between Oliver, my character and Tommy (Colin Donnell). There is a Gossip Girl element to it but then a supernatural element to it. You get the best of both worlds.”
