Caity Lotz Opens Up About Being Embraced By Comic Book Community

Caity Lotz stuns in these new shots from the new issue of Fault Magazine.

The 29-year-old DC’s Legends of Tomorrow actress opened up about her fanbase, Sara Lance and more. Check it:

On being accepted by the comic book fans: “I feel very grateful to be embraced by the community even though my whole character is pretty much nothing like the comics. There was no Sara Lance, there was no ‘Canary’ only ‘Black Canary’, and the ‘White Canary’ in the comics is totally different. Though Sara Lance does really capture the essence of badassery that is at the heart of these comic book characters, so hopefully that counts for something.”

On fans from Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: “Amazing, touching, and sometimes weird. I’m super lucky to be able to travel all over the world and meet fans, it blows my mind how universal shows like Arrow and LOT are. Stories people tell me about how they’ve been inspired or empowered by my character melt my heart. A lot of LGBT fans really appreciate Sara representing a bisexual character and I love that I get to be a part of that. Fan interactions can be kind of weird as well. Like when people stare at you or take sly pictures but don’t actually come up to you. It makes me paranoid.”

On keeping herself grounded: “I have a very good crew around me. We’ve all been best friends for over 10 years and they don’t let me forget who I am. I think I’m actually pretty good about not taking it personally. I’ve done a lot of work (and am still working) to raise my self-esteem and that’s like a bulletproof vest. How do you raise your self-esteem? Accept and embrace who you are and how you look. Which is easier said than done I know, but it’s possible and the only person standing in your way is you.”
