Katherine McNamara Has 'Such Respect' For Stephen Amell On 'Arrow'

Katherine McNamara is dishing on finally getting to share screen time with her TV dad Stephen Amell!

The 23-year-old actress plays Mia on the series, who is the daughter of Stephen‘s Oliver Queen, in the future version of Team Arrow.

“I was so excited to get to work with Stephen. Having watched the series, I was a fan of his work. And then when I shadowed [director] James Bamford during the premiere episode of this season, I really got to watch Stephen work. I got to see how he carries the show. I have such respect for that,” Katherine told EW.

“So getting to work with him and to build this relationship is really wonderful because there’s such a lovely aspect to both Mia and Oliver in this moment, in that Oliver doesn’t really have much experience being a parent and Mia has no experience with her father,” she continued. “So the two of them are at their most vulnerable together in this. Even though they are connected and they are a part of each other, they’re strangers, and they’re having to work through so many difficult, emotional, personal things while not knowing each other at all.”

“There’s such a beauty to the fact that they’re both so uncomfortable and vulnerable and are forced to confront all of these things head-on.”
