The 27-year-old Arrow actress opened up about going into the “family business”, her character Laurel and new website, TomboyKC.com.
On advice from her father, David: “‘Don’t ever stop going to class’. That’s where my brain is — in the learning aspect of it all, and I haven’t missed class yet. As long as I do this, I will be going to class and trying to evolve and definitely continue to work hard.”
On the evolution of Laurel: “She obviously knows how to fight, her father is a cop, but all we know right now is that she can defend herself and kick some a–. I don’t know if she thinks violence is the best way to deal with things, but there is a journey she is going to go on to become the Black Canary.”
On her new blog: “It’s all about myself, my lifestyle and interests. I want to interact and share ideas. I’m on the road a lot and travel quite often, but I’m obsessed with fashion. I think that we should be allowed to wear whatever we want, whether it’s in or not. I’m all about expressing myself and seeing people express themselves in different ways.”
Arrow returns TONIGHT @8PM ET/PT on the CW.
