Katherine McNamara Dishes on New 'Arrow' Character Maya

Katherine McNamara is chatting all about her new role on Arrow and it’s getting up majorly excited about seeing her on the small screen once again.

If you don’t know, the 22-year-old actress was cast as Maya in the long-running series.

The character, Katherine says, is “kick-ass”, she tells ET.

“It’s really exciting! There’s just about nothing that I can say yet because I’m sworn to so much spoiler secrecy,” she adds. “She’s a fighter. She’s someone not to be messed with, I’ll put it that way.”

Katherine also says joining the cast of a long-running series has been a “real joy…that’s such a family and I was welcomed with open arms and it’s such an exciting thing.”

Yara Shahidi, Sabrina Carpenter, & Katherine McNamara Attend the #GirlHero Awards!

We’re always so inspired by these young women and the amazing things they do were recognized at the Girl Up #GirlHero Awards!

Yara Shahidi was among the honorees at the event held on Sunday (October 14) at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Also in attendance at the event were Sabrina Carpenter, Katherine McNamara, Ariel Winter, Monique Coleman, and Elsie Fisher with Eighth Grade director Bo Burnham.

Yara gave an inspiring speech that paid tribute to her mother for teaching her to know her own worth.

“Not only what she’s done for me, but what you’ve done for my brothers as well, is created an environment where it is the expectation that women follow their passions, but more than that, that we walk into every room understanding our worth,” Yara said. “No matter what faulty criteria is put on our voice, we walk in understanding that our existence is criteria enough, is proof enough of our ability to speak on certain issues, on our ability to convey empathy. And more than anything, our importance and emphasis on globalism.”

Sabrina performed her single “Almost Love” and a cover of Ariana Grande‘s “God is a Woman” at the event.

FYI: Yara is wearing a Carolina Herrera outfit and boots. Sabrina is wearing a Marc Jacobs outfit.

The two Shadowhunters stars caught up with co-star Harry Shum, Jr. and his wife Shelby Rabara, plus Modern Family‘s Audrey Anderson Emmons, Coop and Cami Ask The World‘s Dakota Lotus and Olivia Sanabia and Bizaardvark‘s Olivia Rodrigo.

A pair of skeleton hands will welcome guests straight into Mr. Oogie Boogie’s Lair, Dr. Finklestein’s Lab, and an interactive graveyard with 31 spooky tombstones at the attraction, which is open to the public from TODAY until Tuesday, October 9th.

Guests can run amuck in the iconic Sanderson Sisters’ cottage and cast a spell in the giant witches’ cauldron, summon Winifred’s book, and test their purity when lighting the magical black-flame candle.

The experience will also feature one-of-a-kind photo moments for fans to capture on the scenic Spiral Hill like Jack Skellington and recreate the original film poster of Hocus Pocus with their witchy crews, and much more.
