-- KL: "The biggest thing I've learned from doing stunts on set is that, when you do stunts on set, your day is anywhere from 8 to 16 hours. So being warmed up and ready to go - ready to go from sitting for an hour to doing physical combat very intensely at full throttle, you need to be warmed up the entire day. 'Cause if you're not, your body gets cold and you start pulling muscles. So that's the biggest lesson that I've learned - no matter how much time has gone through, stay warm. Stretch randomly here and there just to make sure that when you do start your fight scenes, you're not going to suddenly pull a hamstring."
-- On why she thinks her Arrow character was so loved by fans, KL: "Well, I was very fortunate that Greg Rucka created such a beautiful character in Nyssa, that Marc Guggenheim and the Arrow team took her under their wing and, uh, you know, the beautiful thing about Nyssa is she hasn't been in a lot of comics, so she doesn't have the bible on her that a character like Talia does. So we were very, um, privileged to be able to kind of open her up to our own interpretations. So the Nyssa that you see on Arrow is much different than the Nyssa that is in the comics. And Greg Rucka and, um, [unintelligible word-team?], they were totally fine with that and actually really enjoyed what we did, so that was a relief to hear that. Um, but I think she was beloved just because I think the writers of Arrow really know their fanbase and really know what they wanted to see and, um, they did a great job by making this woman a fierce warrior who was just a little softy goo-ball on the inside. So I think it's just a great combination that people, uh, really gravitate to."
-- On whether Nyssa could show up on the new Batwoman series because of that Batman connection, KL: "I can't even lie to you because I actually don't know. I really don't know what's going to happen in the future, but I think Nyssa would fit in very well in the Batwoman world... So I wouldn't be surprised if you see her there, but at the same time I have no idea.
-- On getting along with the casts of the shows that she's been in, KL: "I think the ones that really click, it shows. So, as you can tell, like, the Arrow cast really get along because we do conventions together, we do multiple conventions together. Um, I'm not even a series reg, but I feel like I've been embraced by the Arrow team. Um, same thing with the Spartacus - you can, uh, you know, we do a lot of conventions together and we've gone to Paris together, and it's fun. It's their own little families."
-- Interviewer: "Batwoman or Supergirl?" KL: "Supergirl."
