'Arrow' Star Gushes Over Emily Bett Rickards' Felicity Smoak in Midseason Finale

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.”

Arrow airs TONIGHT @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.

Emily Bett Rickards & Stephen Amell Tease 'Arrow's Thanksgiving Themed Episode

Anyone else seriously excited that there IS an all-new episode of Arrow tomorrow night? And even better, it’s about Thanksgiving!

Seriously, that’s the title of the episode.

Stars Emily Bett Rickards and Stephen Amell both spoke to Bustle about the themed ep for the show.

“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.”

Stay tuned for more sneak peeks tomorrow!

Emily Bett Rickards Says Felicity Smoak Has Taught Her How To Handle Life

Emily Bett Rickards stuns in a simple and striking shoot with Vulkan magazine.

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.”

Melissa Benoist & Emily Bett Rickards Release Powerful Statements Following 'Arrow' Producer Andrew Kreisberg's Suspension

Melissa Benoist & Emily Bett Rickards Release Powerful Statements Following 'Arrow' Producer Andrew Kreisberg's Suspension

Over the weekend, the Arrowverse was shook after producer Andrew Kreisberg was suspended following sexual harassment and assault allegations.

Variety reports that over 19 women and 4 men have accused the Arrow and Supergirl producer of inappropriate behavior on their sets in Vancouver.

After a few days of silence on social media, Melissa Benoist and Emily Bett Rickards have both spoken out about the situation.

“We were recently made aware of some deeply troubling allegations regarding one of our showrunners,” Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter, who head Berlanti Productions which oversee Kreisberg’s shows, shared with the trade paper.

They add, “We have been encouraging and fully cooperating with the investigation into this by Warner Bros. There is nothing more important to us than the safety and well-being of our cast, crew, writers, producers and any staff. We do not tolerate harassment and are committed to doing everything we can to make an environment that’s safe to work in and safe to speak up about if it isn’t.”

Here’s what Melissa and Emily have shared following the story:

Emily Bett Rickards, Candice Patton & Danielle Panabaker Dish on Girl's Night Out on 'The Flash' Tonight

Emily Bett Rickards, Candice Patton & Danielle Panabaker Dish on Girl's Night Out on 'The Flash' Tonight

Felicity and Iris look more than ready for Iris’ bachelorette party on tonight’s all-new The Flash.

Emily Bett Rickards, Candice Patton and Danielle Panabaker all spoke to EW about tonight’s episode where Killer Frost returns and Felicity turns into a “total nerd” about it.

“It’s an episode that’s very girl-centric,” Candice shared. “The boys are trying to have fun, and the girls end up being the ones that are saving the day in the episode, so it’s an all-star female team up, and it’s a really girl-centered episode that fans have been waiting for.”

However, while Iris and Felicity invite Caitlin to join them, it looks like she’s sort of afraid to, given that she could turn into Killer Frost at any moment.

“Caitlin, as we all know, has been struggling with Killer Frost and trying to keep that subdued and feeling like she can’t be a part of Team Flash because she’s got these powers she’s trying to keep under control,” Candice added. “Throughout the episode, you see Iris really be there for her and help her deal with her struggles of trying to keep Killer Frost down, basically telling her, ‘You don’t have to choose one or the other, you can be both. You’re still a good person.’”

Felicity, however, is ready to meet the villain living inside Caitlin.

“She’s stoked to see Killer Frost because she’s never seen her before,” Emily shared. “Obviously she didn’t know Killer Frost was as dire as she is. Felicity’s a huge nerd and loves that stuff.”

Danielle adds, “Felicity brings a lot of levity to any scene she’s in, and it’s nice to have her enthusiasm on the show.”

The Flash airs TONIGHT @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.

Felicity Teams Back Up With Helix Tonight on 'Arrow'

Felicity Teams Back Up With Helix Tonight on 'Arrow'

It looks like Felicity is working with Helix once more on Arrow tonight.

Emily Bett Rickards chatted with EW about Felicity helping out the group again, as they need her help in taking down the mysterious Cayden James, who she helped free last season — and she’s going to try and do it alone.

“Setting him free was never the issue until setting him free meant there was going to be a negative rebound to that,” Emily shares with the glossy. “Originally setting him free was supposed to be a positive and that’s all that was going to be.”


And accepting help from the team is going to be a big thing for Felicity too.

“Having him come back and stir the pot, like a reminder, something you thought would never happen to you again happens again, and you just thought you were done with it,” Emily adds. “So Felicity wants to take the reins into her own hands and do it, which is why she denies the team’s help, but obviously you can’t work alone.”

Arrow airs TONIGHT @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.

Emily Bett Rickards Dishes On Felicity's New Company With Curtis on 'Arrow'

Emily Bett Rickards Dishes On Felicity's New Company With Curtis on 'Arrow'

Beyond Olicity, Emily Bett Rickards has an even more exciting storyline coming on Arrow — her new tech company with Curtis!

Speaking with EW recently, the actress dished about how the company ws built with the mindset of changing the world.

“It’s going to be Curtis and her working together and hopefully bringing tech into the world that can aid society in a better way,” she says. “That’s Felicity’s goal.”

But…there’s a kicker. They have to invent something big to get noticed.

“She has trouble trying to think of what necessarily they’re going to invent to kick off the company,” Emily adds. “But she figures it out around episode 5-ish.”

We can’t wait to watch!

Arrow airs on Thursdays @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.

Emily Bett Rickards & Stephen Amell Tease Olicity's Future on 'Arrow': 'They Are Back Together'

Emily Bett Rickards & Stephen Amell Tease Olicity's Future on 'Arrow': 'They Are Back Together'

It’s taken us this long to recover from last night’s Arrow ep, where all we could see was Oliver giving Felicity a key to his place and us going into hyper fangirl mode.

“They are back together,” Stephen Amell confirmed to EW, before teasing that he “doesn’t know [what’s next].”

Sure ya don’t, Stephen ;)

However, just because Oliver and Felicity are back together, doesn’t mean there won’t be some things to work out coming in the new episodes.

“I don’t think they can [start from square one],” Emily Bett Rickards shared. “I just don’t think you can with anyone you have history with and someone you really, really care for. It’s usually one to 100. They do really love each other and they’ve hopefully solidified their friendship and hopefully can grow off the base of that.”
