Emily Bett Rickards Is Glad That the 'Arrowverse' Crossovers Are Only Once A Year

Emily Bett Rickards is opening up about the challenges and pressure of doing crossovers within the Arrowverse in a new interview.

Speaking with Collider, the Arrow star revealed that she actually shudders when someone mentions a crossover is happening.

“I shudder like someone said the word ‘Voldermort’,” she joked.

Emily does admit though, that, “they’re amazing…I think it’s really special for fans who want to see a growing and different aspect of a television show.”

“It’s an interesting platform and there’s nothing else like that.”

But still, it’s a lot of work.

“You get to work with different writers, different actors, different directors in the same week, probably in the same day. Three shows on the same day, it’s a little bit much.”

Felicity and Oliver get married again on tonight’s episode of Arrow!

If you remember, the off-and-on again couple said their I Do’s at the end of the crossover event just last week with The Flash‘s Iris and Barry.

“I think you can expect the warm fuzzies, the love that they have for each other,” co-star Rick Gonzalez told EW of the upcoming nuptials tonight.

He adds, “I think one of the most iconic things about Arrow is that organically, Felicity Smoak, a really smart, techy, nerdy, cute girl who was just there to help Oliver find out some information, all of a sudden became the love of his life. I think that was a surprise to the writers.”

He continues, gushing over Emily Bett Rickards who plays the character, “I think it’s also kudos to Emily, who took a small character and made it amazing. I think she’s just an amazing actress.”

“Every day when I see her work and the stuff that she creates with this character, she just makes it look so effortless – just the small quirks and the love that she displays for Oliver. I think what we can anticipate is [the culmination] of that relationship and seeing how much they care about each other.”

“It sort of works like every other holiday or moment that should be fun, which is to say that it goes to shit almost immediately, like in act one,” Stephen joked. “But it ends on a relatively happy note.”

Emily adds that it was one of her favorites to film, because she loves the holiday as much as we all do.

“Anytime we can have more Thanksgiving festivities around the world, I think Thanksgiving should be at least four times a year so I was happy about that.”

In her interview, the Arrow actress opened up about playing Felicity Smoak on the series.

“Felicity is a very hopeful person,” Emily says. “Even after all the evil she’s faced and those who have been hurt around her, she still keeps fighting. Keeps finding a new way to work through and always looking up. She stays fresh. She teaches me.”

Emily also opened up about how much Felicity has grown on the long-running show.

“I think inherently she will always be the girl that is more comfortable hiding behind the screen,” she shared. “I don’t think she ever thought she would deliver a public speech or any speech or stand on any stage of sorts…but here she is.”
