  1. Felicity, along with Oliver and the Suicide Squad, also appeared in another story (titled "King Shark") in The Flash: Season Zero comic book - here's my transcription from that story... The Flash: Season Zero, Book 3 (King Shark) (Story by Andrew Kreisberg, script by Kai Yu Wu & Lauren Certo, pencils by Phil Hester, and inks by Eric Gapstur) – Barry seeks information about the Suicide Squad from Felicity and Oliver in Starling City; and Felicity helps Barry escape from an A.R.G.U.S. facility: (Team Flash discovers that the victim, Dr. Gavin DeMarco, lead researcher at Brighton Medical Facility, was killed by a shark. Cisco attempts to hack into the Brighton database.) Cisco: “Wow, their security system is better than I thought. Even I can’t hack in there.” Caitlin: “Maybe I should call Felicity for her help.” Cisco: “Excuse me. I can do it myself. (Makes phone call) Hey, Felicity! Quick question… Ahh, so that’s how you decode it. Thank you! (Ends call) … Voila!” * * * (Team Flash discover that the shark is a meta-animal and that there were five people who experimented on sharks at Brighton. They try to protect the remaining four researchers. Barry is injured in a fight with the shark man. The Suicide Squad, composed of Deadshot, Cupid and Captain Boomerang, capture the shark man, but have a run-in with Joe West and Barry Allen as the Flash. Cisco names the shark man “King Shark.” Barry runs to Starling City to get some answers about the Suicide Squad.) Barry: “I’m baaack! And I need some help, Oliver.” Oliver (dressed as Green Arrow, on a rooftop): “Not right now. I’m in the middle of a stakeout.” Barry: “Who are you staking out? This will take two seconds.” Oliver: “You know you could have just called.” Barry: “I enjoy my exercise. What happened to that vigilante you took down that used the heart-shaped arrowheads? I think she’s back in town.” Oliver: “Not possible.” Felicity (over comms): “Oliver? Is that Barry?” Oliver: “It’s no one.” Felicity (over comms): “Oliver, don’t lie to me. I can hear that it’s Barry. Tell him I say ‘hi.’ And I’m free Thursday for that Carl Sagan retro.” Oliver: “I’m not doing that.” Barry: “Cisco?” Felicity (over comms): “No, it’s Felicity! I hacked into your frequency since Oliver won’t say hello to you for me. What are you doing in Starling City?” Barry: “I’m trying to get information about a female archer that uses heart-shaped arrows.” Felicity (over comms): “Oh, Cupid! Yeah, she’s obsessed with Oliver. Tried to kidnap him for herself.” Barry: “Felicity… This Cupid woman is now working with a team that’s called the Suicide Squad.” Oliver: “Listen, whatever they’re doing – leave them alone... My guy’s here. Hold on. (Shoots arrow at the ground next to two thieves and then rides his bow along a grappling rope toward the ground.) Barry: “I can top this.” (Runs down the side of the building toward the ground) (Oliver and Barry capture the two thieves.) Barry: “Whoahhhh!!! I got him.” Oliver: “Like I’ve said before… speed isn’t everything.” Barry: “Hey, it isn’t always pretty, but I got the job done.” * * * Barry: “Felicity! Just thought I’d pop over and say ‘hey’!” Felicity: “Barry! Where’s Oliver?” Barry: “Couldn’t keep up. What do you know about the Suicide Squad?” Felicity: “I wish I didn’t know anything. Remember that boomerang I needed your help tracking? Well, he now works for A.R.G.U.S. with a crazy group of ex-criminals. Figuratively and literally.” Oliver (entering through the window): “I told you to leave the Suicide Squad alone.” Barry: “The Squad took someone and I need to get him back. Please, Oliver. I’m guessing you know what it’s like to be forced to do things you don’t want to do.” Oliver: “So you want to break someone out of A.R.G.U.S.? A.R.G.U.S. is extremely powerful and dangerous.” * * * (Barry and Team Flash plan to break into an A.R.G.U.S. facility to rescue Shay Lamden AKA King Shark.) Barry: “Oliver said A.R.G.U.S. is under heavy surveillance at all hours.” Cisco: “Lucky for us, I managed to get a hold of the blueprints for A.R.G.U.S. and schematics for their entire security system… Okay, I may have had help from Felicity but the important thing is that we got it.” * * * (With Team Flash in a mobile van, Barry breaks into the A.R.G.U.S. facility. Instead of finding King Shark, he is confronted by Amanda Waller, who tells him that she’s made King Shark part of the Suicide Squad and that the Squad is on a mission in Coast City. She then leaves Barry trapped in a barred cell.) Barry (over comms): “Any luck, Cisco?” (The bars to his cell suddenly rise up.) Barry (over comms): “I knew you could do it, man!” Felicity (over comms): “Actually it’s ma’am… Oliver’s going to kill me.” Barry (over comms): “Well if he doesn’t… I owe you one, Felicity!” (Barry escapes and tracks down the Suicide Squad, where they’re using King Shark to intimidate their target. Barry frees the target and then apologizes when Waller tells him that the target was a dangerous terrorist who’s planning to destroy thousands of innocent lives. Team Flash then teams up with the Suicide Squad to track down and capture this terrorist. After the mission is over, Barry offers to help King Shark, but King Shark decides to stay with the Suicide Squad.)
  2. Another MG interview... Arrowverse EP Marc Guggenheim on Making His Directorial Debut with Tonight’s TV-Themed ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ BY CHRISTINA RADISH MAY 26, 2020 https://collider.com/legends-of-tomorrow-season-5-episode-14-marc-guggenheim-interview/
  3. 5x07 (Mr. Parker's Cul-De-Sac) - Sara was avoiding calls from Wild Dog, who was trying to get in touch with her about a job in Star City 5x08 (Romeo V. Juliet: Dawn of Justness) - Nate's plan to steal the ring included, "And then we go to Star City and we pick up Wild Dog..."
  4. I almost forgot - Felicity appeared in a story titled "Smoak Signals" in The Flash's S1 tie-in comic book titled The Flash: Season Zero (collection of issues #1-24 of the digital series that were released from Sep. 8, 2014 until Jul. 27, 2015). This story appears to take place during S1 of The Flash and S3 of Arrow... Here's my transcription from that comic story: The Flash: Season Zero, Book 2 (Smoak Signals) (Story by Andrew Kreisberg & Marc Guggenheim, script by Andrew Kreisberg, and art by Marcus To) – In Starling City, Barry Allen saves Felicity Smoak from a drone attack, and they discover that Felicity has an unknown nemesis: (Felicity is at Palmer Tech, watching live video on her notebook of Barry Allen, as the Flash, fighting Hydro Hunter. She’s wearing her glasses, a pink shirt and dark pants, with her hair down. A caption reads: “FELICITY SMOAK Vice President of Computer Sciences at Palmer Technologies.”) Ray Palmer (entering): “Felicity!” Felicity: “Yes! What?” Ray: “When someone says they want to meet with you at nine a.m. sharp, they only add the ‘sharp’ in case you thought they meant ‘nine-ish.’ Or even ‘nine-fifteen.’ Neither of which I meant. Otherwise, I would’ve said ‘nine a.m. soft’ or even ‘brunch-ish.’” Felicity: “I’m really sorry, Ray. I just got... preoccupied.” Ray: “What are you looking at?” Felicity: “Nothing. Just one of my… cooking shows.” Ray: “You missed a nine a.m. videoconference meeting with the prime minister of Japan to discuss upgrading their government software because you wanted to learn how to make fettucini alfredo?” Felicity: “It’s long been a life goal of mine to learn how to make fettucini alfredo.” Ray: “Life goals are important. Especially the ones involving pasta and cream-based sauces.” Felicity: “I didn’t ruin things with Japan, did I?” Ray: “Nah. I majored in handling prime ministers. That or particle physics. One of those. Call was rescheduled for tomorrow. Nine a.m… sharp.” (Ray leaves.) Reporter (on live video): “I don’t understand. What is the Flash doing?” Felicity: “Barry Allen, if you die and I get fired… I will so P.O.-ed!” * * * Reporter (on live video): “Central City is safe… thanks to the Flash.” Felicity: “Are you trying to give me a heart attack?! Why do all of your fights have to be televised?!” (She is now sitting at her desk, still watching the live video news on her notebook.) Felicity: “This is why Oliver and I do everything we do in the dark. And thank you, Lord, for my being alone when I said that out loud. I’m coming dangerously close to inventing the triple entendre.” (Suddenly several flying, armored men crash through the windows of her office.) Felicity: “Wha --?!” One Armored Man: “Felicity Smoak.” Reporter (on live video): “We are now getting unconfirmed reports of flying men in the skies over Starling City. Eyewitness accounts say the unknown aviators are heading straight for Palmer Technologies!” One Armored Man (lifting Felicity up by her neck with one hand): “This is a 50-story building. Approximately 1500 feet. That should give you around twelve-and-a-half seconds… to reflect on your crimes!” (He drops her out of the window. She falls down, but is caught by The Flash.) Barry: “I heard you might be in danger. I ran right over.” Felicity: “I can’t hear you.” Barry: “Tell you in a second.” (They make it back to the floor of her crashed-in office, but are instantly surrounded by several of the armored men.) Barry: “Better make that a minute.” (He picks up Felicity and continues to race down the exterior side of the building. They continue to talk.) Barry: “So… how’ve you been?” Felicity: “Oh, you know… the usual daily grind. Spreadsheets. Patent filings. Boring corporate stuff. You?” Barry: “Same. Family. Work. Running. And how are things between you and Oliver?” Felicity: “Don’t ask. What about you and Iris?” Barry: “Don’t ask.” (They make it to the street on the ground and Barry puts Felicity down.) Barry: “Any idea what these guys want?” Felicity: “I haven’t really had a lot of time to mull it over, what with the broken glass and the shooting... and the sprinting down fifty stories!” Barry: “If anything comes to mind, give me a shout.” Felicity: “Will do.” (A blast suddenly explodes the sidewalk right by them.) Barry: “Oops! Not that way!” One Armored Man: “Initiate pursuit!” (Barry picks up Felicity again and takes off running. They’re pursued by flying armored men. One armored man zeroes in on Felicity.) One Armored Man: “Lock and target.” (The flying armored men shoot at the fleeing Barry and Felicity.) Barry: “Geez! These guys really want you dead. Where to now?” Felicity: “Turn left… I have a plan.” (They enter a large wind farm field with many tall wind turbine towers. Barry puts Felicity back on her feet.) Barry: “This is such a bad plan. Like Han-taking-the-Falcon-into-the-asteroid-field bad…” Felicity: “Except that turned out to be ‘good’ because they got away from those tie fighters.” Barry: “For like five minutes! Until Boba Fett was all, ‘I’ll see your “hiding in the Imperial garbage and raise you—“’” (Large explosion sounds as several flying armored men appear.) Felicity: “W-why are you doing this?” One Armored Man: “Felicity Smoak must die!” (Barry picks up Felicity again and starts running again.) Barry: “Wind farm chase it is!” (They are pursued by many flying armored men, who are shooting at them. Barry suddenly stops and looks up at the wind turbine towers.) Barry: “I’ve got an idea.” (Puts Felicity down and takes off) Felicity: “Barry! Wait!” (Barry races up a wind turbine tower, leaps off and grabs a flying armored man.) Barry: “Time… to get… on these guys’ level.” (He uses the armored man he’s piggybacking to attack the other flying armored men.) Barry: “Sorry for the backseat flying.” (He then rips the cables out of the back of the armored man he’s piggybacking and crashes him to the ground.) Felicity (running up to him): “Are you okay, Ba – I mean, Flash?” Barry: “Yeah. Just eager to see who could possibly want to hurt you.” Felicity: “Not half as much as I am! So, who the hell are – (Rips off mask from grounded armored man) – you?!” (The face of the unmasked armored man is a robot face.) Felicity: “It’s just a drone… which means there’s someone controlling it. Voice (from Armored Man Drone): “Your fast friend can’t be everywhere at once. We will finish this.” Felicity: “And who is ‘we’ exactly? It’d be nice to put a name with, you know… not your face.” (Panel shows the back view of a woman sitting in a chair, watching the live monitor feed of Felicity and Barry. We can’t see her face.) Unidentified Woman: “You’ll know me soon enough, Felicity Megan Smoak. You and I are just getting started.” Barry: “Cool! You’ve got a nemesis.” Felicity: “I deserve a nemesis.”

  6. Although these videos were only posted recently, the interviews with Kirk Acevedo and Rick Gonzalez were recorded last year during Showmasters' London Film & Comic Con, July 26-28, 2019 (I did not transcribe everything)... Kirk Acevedo Interview London Film and Comic Con Red Carpet News May 23, 2020 -- Media Q: "Starting with Arrow, that's obviously a show that has this huge international fanbase. Can you talk about what it meant for you to join that family and what you're most proud of - of the work you got to do on that run?" KA: "You know, it - it's a great honor, you know, to be on a show that's been on for awhile... They let me do my thing and I enjoyed, uh, their process. They allowed me to do my process. And so, it, uh - it worked." -- Media Q: "Can you talk a little bit about your process and particularly with that character. What was it as a storyteller that most excited you about that role?" KA: "You know, well, when, uh - when Marc Guggenheim and, uh, Wendy Mericle approached me to play Diaz, they said, you know, we don't want your typical bad guy, meaning, you know, big, chews scenery. You know, we want someone who's like Scarface. Think Al Pacino in The Godfather. So I was like, it's more my speed. And, uh, I wanted to play something like that." -- Media Q: "For Arrow fans, we're getting to say good-bye to the show with the final season. I'm curious what you're looking forward to in terms of that and then getting to watch that, in terms of how the show ties up together, and whether it's going to be strange, having been a part of that, to see it finally coming to an end?" KA: "For me personally, I have no attachments, emotional attachments, to any shows that I've been on, because I don't watch television. I don't. I watch sports. The only TV shows that I watch were Game of Thrones and X-Files. Truth. So, to answer the question, it's like, I'm sure they'll send off the show and it'll be a fantastic eighth season. But I won't watch it, because I've done - I've never seen a Fringe, I've never seen an Oz episode, I've never watched Band of Brothers. I don't watch things that I'm in... So, that's as honest an answer that I can give. Before people say, oh, he's throwing shade, I don't watch anything that I've been in, so I'm not going to watch, you know." Rick Gonzalez On Arrow Growth & Fan Questions Red Carpet News May 24, 2020 -- Media Q: "I'm curious, what are the most common questions you get fired at you when you meet fans at cons? What do fans seem to want to know and ask about?" RG: "Uh, they want to know about the crossover this final season. Uh, one of the interesting things they want to know is: what will happen with Rene this final season? Um, will I be in - I think one of the most common questions is: will I be, uh, in any of the other shows after Arrow ends? You know, and I think what's really cool is that a lot of the fans want to continue to see Wild Dog in, uh, some of the other shows. So, uh, it's been really sweet to just see the love that they have for the character, um, especially a character that's come in halfway, you know, um, in the show... It's been really nice to be a part of the family and, uh, to be inundated with this fanbase who've been here since the beginning, you know, and really, uh, taken in Wild Dog as - as a family member, as a - as a Day One, as they say. And, uh, I appreciate that, you know. I know that they've had plenty of time to grow with him, um, and see him become a better, uh, person and to become a better team mate and member. and so it's - it'e been a lot of growth for Rene Ramirez and Wild Dog. And, um, so it's kinda nice to see the fans react to that and connect to that." Rick Gonzalez On The End Of Arrow Red Carpet News May 24, 2020 -- Media Q: "For fans of the Arrowverse, saying goodbye to Arrow is such a huge emotional wrench. Can you talk a little bit about what it feels for you and the rest of the Arrow family to know that you are working on that final season and to know that that portion of the universe is now coming to a dramatic close?" RG: "Yeah. We're - we're - we're not sad about it, but we're - we have - we're invigorated to give the fans an amazing Season 8. I think we owe it to the fans to give them a love letter to say 'thank you' to, uh, to really push forward on all phases, our writing, our directing, our producing, our acting, you know, to really kind of push the envelope, uh, in a way that's special, you know, and to commemorate the eight seasons that we've been on air and the ability that we've had to kind of spawn other shows. You know, I think the legacy of Arrow is the ability that we've been able to, you know, um, introduce other shows like The Flash and Supergirl and Legends and now Batwoman. And, um, we've been copied - we've been duplicated. You know, there've been other copycats, but we've been duplicated. Our - our style has been duplicated. And it's a form of flattery that, you know, Arrow has been able to kind of create this universe and this - this type of TV show that people can connect with and enjoy. So, you know, as a cast, we're excited and we're kind of invigorated to give this strong, last season to the fans. ... We're going to shoot for the stars. You know, I think - I think, you know, the important thing is, is to kind of, um, be true to ourselves as a show, um, and at the same time continue to push the envelope forward. Um, because this is our final season, we got to go for broke. And I think that's what we're doing. And I think we have people like Marc Guggenheim and Beth Schwartz and, um, uh, you know, some of the other producers on our show that, uh, understand comic books, understand the legacy of our TV show and what that means to the fans. And I think, you know, we're gonna - we're definitely going to go for broke. You know, and I think there's a lot up our sleeves that we want to, you know, kinda give the fans. So, uh, without giving anything away, I mean, you know, it's going to be a doozy." Rick Gonzalez Hopes For Wild Dog On Other Arrowverse Shows Red Carpet News May 24, 2020 -- Media Q: "There's a huge appetite from fans to see yourself specifically and other members of the cast become a more permanent fixture of some of the other shows. Do you feel like there's a natural home for your character? Do you feel - obviously with Legends, that's something that's already quite established - do you think that's where you would probably end up, if we were to see you continue as a mainstay of another show in the universe?" RG: "Yeah, I mean, I think, you know, there's definitely room for Wild Dog to connect with other, uh, shows and characters. I think Wild Dog specifically - um, especially with, um, his - his energy and his temperament, um, bodes well with comedy, bodes well with characters that are the opposite of him, because he's so hard to get along with and brooding and moody and speaks his mind, but is also a good person at heart, you know? So there's a - there's a recipe there for a lot of good chemistry with different characters in the - in the Arrowverse. Um, so anywhere from Supergirl to Batwoman, there's so many areas where Wild Dog could connect to. Um, so I'm excited to see, even if it's just for a couple episodes or any cameos, I think there's plenty of room... That conversation has been spoken about, in terms of like seeing if Wild Dog can, um, definitely show up in other shows. So it's - it's definitely a possibility and it's definitely being, um, talked about." Rick Gonzalez Shares On Set Arrow Fun Red Carpet News May 24, 2020 -- Media Q: "Every time we chat to a member of the Arrow family, we're constantly reminded of how fun a set it is and the pranks and particularly Mr. John Barrowman, who, of course, is here today. I'm curious if you've been - ever been the victim or recipient of any of that kind of fun and if you've got memories from that that you take with you from Arrow." RG: "Well, I'm thankful that I came after the Barrowman years, um, you know, because - but he's so much fun. Um, you know, getting to know Barrowman is - is such a light and so funny and just a good energy to be around. Um, we've had Echo Kellum on the show for a bit and, you know, his energy was always infectious and just so much fun to be around and just have jokes. Um, like he's the kind of person - Echo's the kind of person that'll make you funnier, you know... He's just so infectious with his comedy. So, um, Emily Bett Rickards, uh, Rickards, is also amazing as well. Like, her light, you know. So we've been fortunate to have, you know, that type of energy on our show, where we all get along, we all enjoy each other's company. Um, definitely not doing any pranks on each other, but definitely enjoying each other's company."
  7. I noticed that on Legends this season, there were at least two in-episode references to Wild Dog. The below video was recently posted on Youtube, although the interview was recorded last year during Showmasters' London Film & Comic Con, July 26-28, 2019 (posting here because it's still just speculation at this point)...

  9. FYI, the fan who recorded the above-posted video of JH's Virtual Q&A panel for Creation Entertainment missed recording the first two minutes of that panel. JH also did a Virtual Meet & Greet session, but I haven't seen any video of that yet.
  10. Posting here because GG debuted as Barry Allen in Season 2 of Arrow, so he will probably talk about his Arrow audition, and he might also talk about his Arrow episodes and Arrow actors...
  11. In regards to JH's Virtual Q&A for Creation Entertainment (above), I had these immediate reactions... 1. JH sounds like a really nice person and very non-diva-like. She also sounds like the type of person who would not push for more story or more screentime, but would just be grateful for whatever she's given. 2. JH's rationale as to why there can be so many Canaries could also apply to every other superhero. And yet there's still only one Green Arrow and multiple Canaries. 3. JH is incorrect when she says that every iteration of Black Canary is now biracial. Last I heard, KC is not. 4. When JH auditioned, she believed that she was meant to play the Arrow role for which she was auditioning (Dinah Drake, as it turned out). KC has said in interviews that she was told she was "born to play Laurel Lance" on Arrow. So, in effect, both JH and KC believe that they were meant to play Black Canary. 😏
  12. Arrow: Why Tommy Merlyn Was Killed Off After Just One Season BY HANNAH SHAW-WILLIAMS MAY 24, 2020 https://screenrant.com/arrow-season-1-tommy-merlyn-death-killed-reason/
  13. ETA: The fan who recorded this video missed recording the first two minutes of JH's virtual Q&A panel. JH also did a virtual Meet & Greet session, but I haven't seen any video of that yet... Juliana Harkavy Virtual Q&A @ Creation Ent Morgan Jones May 23, 2020 -- Fan Q: " During that scene where Laurel walks in on Dinah - walks on Dinah singing - singing in the bar, was it your choice to change the lyrics or was it scripted?" JH: "Ah. So, um, I don't think we did change the lyrics from the original song. 'Sunny' is a song by Marvin Gaye and we had, uh - we went - we were looking at songs for quite a few months. I originally wanted to sing 'Criminal' by Fiona Apple. Um, but - and, not 'but,' I still love that song, still might potentially sing it in the future on the show, I hope. Uh, but, uh, 'Sunny' just seemed - there was something upbeat about it and because the tone of Canaries is different and lighter than the tone of Arrow, it just seemed more appropriate. I think the original song - 'Sunny, also true, I'm in love with you' - no, that is - that actually is the lyric of the song. 'I'm in love with you.' And I know that there were a lot of, uh, there - what do they call us? Laurel - Siren - SirenCanary fans that looked deep into that last lyric. Um, and I'm not opposed to whatever you're speculating. Who knows what can happen? Maybe she does love her? Mm-hmm." -- Fan Q: "Would you ever want to do a musical crossover with the rest of the Arrowverse?" JH: "Yeah, for sure. I would love to do that. And - and hopefully we'll be able to do that with Canaries, because I sing, Kat sings, Katie sings... and we all want to sing with everybody else as well... I would love to sing with Melissa. She has - And Grant. They have the most beautiful voices." -- JH (reading fan question): "Oh, okay... 'I think the OG song "Sunny" is Bobby Hebb and he sings "I love you" instead of "I'm in love with you."' Oh my God, maybe they changed the lyrics and I didn't even know. Maybe I sang it wrong and nobody caught it. Which one is it? That might be a foreshadow. That might be a little hint maybe. I don't know." -- Fan Q: "What is it like sharing the Black Canary mantle?" JH: "It has been one of my favorite parts about playing the Black Canary, actually, is that I get to, uh, be - that - that I am not the only one. I think it's important for a few reasons. One, it takes a lot of pressure off of me at work. (Laughs) I'm kind of kidding. I actually like that it sends the message that anybody, any woman with, you know, the qualities of - of heroism, integrity, strength, could be the Black Canary. It's not limited to, like, this one person. Like, if you have the heart of the Canary, you're a Canary. And I think it's represented in the show, because there are many of us and we are a team. And, uh, I would like that to be represented in life, when people are inspired by the character as well. So - and - and also, luckily, truly all of the women who play Black Canary are so - or have played Black Canary, including Alaina Huffman, are some of my favorite, favorite people that, uh, I've ever worked with. And they really do good casting on the show, because we somehow - like we all fit. Even in real life, we all just - our energies really work together. So whoever made the decision to cast us all, I think they knew what they were doing."
  14. I only transcribed portions... Juliana Harkavy Virtual Q&A @ Creation Ent Morgan Jones May 23, 2020 -- Fan Q: "How did you get the role of Dinah Drake and Black Canary?" JH: "So how did I get the role of Black Canary? I auditioned. I auditioned in Los Angeles and, um, it went - it went quite well and I remember feeling like it was really, um, a role that was meant for me to play and a story that was meant for me to tell. And after my first audition, I looked at myself in the mirror and said, 'Juliana, if you get a callback for this job, you're gonna book it. And if you're booking it, then you have to be ready for your life to change.' And I had a talk with myself and I think it sort of just manifested from there. And I had a callback and I booked it. And they told me, uh, after I booked it, the role that I actually was auditioning for. I didn't know. I just - I thought I was like a rogue vigilante. I knew that it was a big role, but I didn't know it was such an iconic role. And I think I cried for three weeks straight from joy - from joy. Um, but when they called me to say I got the role, the first thing they said was, 'Hi, um, so we were just wondering, would you like to move to Vancouver?' And I had just moved back to L.A. two months before. I hadn't even unpacked all the boxes from my house, so it was a trip." -- Fan Q: "What show outside the DC Universe would it be fun for Dinah Drake, Black Canary, to be on?" JH: "I would love to see Dinah Drake show up on - all the shows I'm thinking of aren't - aren't on the air anymore... I was going to say Breaking Bad. I just want a superhero to show up on like a random badass show." -- Fan Q: "Did you appropriate any items from set?" JH: "Did I steal anything from set? Yes, oh yeah. I think I stole six bo staffs. We had a lot. We had a whole bushel of bo staffs. I have quite a few. So nobody come surprise me at my house, 'cause I'm ready." -- Fan Q: "During that scene where Laurel walks in on Dinah - walks on Dinah singing - singing in the bar, was it your choice to change the lyrics or was it scripted?" JH: "Ah. So, um, I don't think we did change the lyrics from the original song. 'Sunny' is a song by Marvin Gaye and we had, uh - we went - we were looking at songs for quite a few months. I originally wanted to sing 'Criminal' by Fiona Apple. Um, but - and, not 'but,' I still love that song, still might potentially sing it in the future on the show, I hope. Uh, but, uh, 'Sunny' just seemed - there was something upbeat about it and because the tone of Canaries is different and lighter than the tone of Arrow, it just seemed more appropriate. I think the original song - 'Sunny, also true, I'm in love with you' - no, that is - that actually is the lyric of the song. 'I'm in love with you.' And I know that there were a lot of, uh, there - what do they call us? Laurel - Siren - SirenCanary fans that looked deep into that last lyric. Um, and I'm not opposed to whatever you're speculating. Who knows what can happen? Maybe she does love her? Mmm." -- Fan Q: "What is your favorite behind-the-scenes memory from Arrow?" JH: "My God, there's so many. Everyone's so funny... Probably - I actually can't remember which episode it was. Episode - it was Season - oh my God, I can't remember which season it was. It must have been 6. Diggle and Oliver were drowning in cement, um, but the cement was oatmeal. (Laughs) The first day, the set smelled like a delicious, like, breakfast restaurant. Like mmm, like yummy oatmeal. By day 3, it was freakin' putrid. It was disgusting. And poor Stephen and David had to stand in this, like, rotting oatmeal for literally like 12 hours. And it was so funny because, before every single take, like, they were - they were like gagging, like, like... (Makes vomiting sound) Like, just so grossed out. And then they would roll and everybody went into their, like, Green Arrow mode. And it was the funniest thing to watch them transition. I mean, I wouldn't have been laughing if it was me in there, but it wasn't, so it was hilarious." -- Fan Q: "If you could've played another character in the Arrowverse, who would it be and why?" JH: "Hmm... Probably Supergirl. I just think there's something so bright and like bubbly, but strong and grounded, and she's such an iconic character. I am such a different, uh, type than - than Supergirl traditionally is... And I love how they made Black Canary go from sort of like a white blond from the comics into like now every iteration of Black Canary is like biracial or, you know, it's - they - she's made such a leap and, uh, she's made young women, girls, of all different, you know, races and - and creeds feel they can identify with, uh, Black Canary. So it'd be cool to do that with a character like Supergirl as well." -- Fan Q: "Would you ever want to do a musical crossover with the rest of the Arrowverse?" JH: "Yeah, for sure. I would love to do that. And - and hopefully we'll be able to do that with Canaries, because I sing, Kat sings, Katie sings... and we all want to sing with everybody else as well... I would love to sing with Melissa. She has - And Grant. They have the most beautiful voices." -- JH (reading fan question): "Oh, okay... 'I think the OG song "Sunny" is Bobby Hebb and he sings "I love you" instead of "I'm in love with you."' Oh my God, maybe they changed the lyrics and I didn't even know. Maybe I sang it wrong and nobody caught it. Which one is it? That might be a foreshadow. That might be a little hint maybe. I don't know." -- Fan Q: "What is it like sharing the Black Canary mantle?" JH: "It has been one of my favorite parts about playing the Black Canary, actually, is that I get to, uh, be - that - that I am not the only one. I think it's important for a few reasons. One, it takes a lot of pressure off of me at work. (Laughs) I'm kind of kidding. I actually like that it sends the message that anybody, any woman with, you know, the qualities of - of heroism, integrity, strength, could be the Black Canary. It's not limited to, like, this one person. Like, if you have the heart of the Canary, you're a Canary. And I think it's represented in the show, because there are many of us and we are a team. And, uh, I would like that to be represented in life, when people are inspired by the character as well. So - and - and also, luckily, truly all of the women who play Black Canary are so - or have played Black Canary, including Alaina Huffman, are some of my favorite, favorite people that, uh, I've ever worked with. And they really do good casting on the show, because we somehow - like we all fit. Even in real life, we all just - our energies really work together. So whoever made the decision to cast us all, I think they knew what they were doing." -- Fan Q: "Who did you bond with the most on Arrow?" JH: "It's really hard to say who I bonded the most with. Every - you know, every year, every episode, every month was different. And I had the opportunity to bond with - with everyone. Towards the end, probably Katie because we - you know, we play the same character, we had this new show coming up together. Um, when I first met Katie, I was really scared because I thought she would hate me, because I thought I was filling her role. I didn't know what had happened. I didn't know she was going to come back on the show. Um, and I just - and I guess I was so used to this like typical Hollywood thing of competition between women at the time, unfortunately. And Katie was just such - she was so not that - she is so not that way. She was so welcoming. She was so lovely. So I was really, really excited to find out like what a cool person she was to work with. And then once I felt, you know, once - once I realized that and I felt safe and like I had a real friend there, who actually could understand what I was going there as well on a level that nobody else could. I think that made us get closer, too. Um, and she always - when I tell her that I was scared to meet her, she's always like, 'you're ridiculous, why would you ever be scared to meet me?' But, yeah, I was. So that friendship kind of meant the most to me, because a lot of women in her position would sort of be like, screw that girl, or like, you know, I mean, I don't know. And I'm so, so grateful that they brought her back, because I think our characters work better together. Um, and I would not have had this same experience - experience on Arrow if it hadn't been for Katie, if she hadn't been there. Yeah. Also Stephen at the end, as well. I feel we got very close. He was - he was a - Stephen was a rock for me. During the last year, I went through a lot in my personal life. And, um, so, uh, and he - he really stepped up to the plate. He was really a great, great friend. I will forever be grateful to him for everything that he has done. Everything." -- Fan Q: "What was the best thing about working on Arrow?" JH: "There are so many things that were incredible. Um, to be honest, being able to connect with you guys has been the most unexpected part of the job that I didn't realize - um, I didn't realize how profound it would be and how powerful it would be to get to know all of you. When - when we're working, it's almost like we're in a little box and we don't know, um, you know, I mean, you hear - you hear the numbers when the show is aired, but - but you don't know who's watching. And so, to hear how the show has impacted you guys, I feel like I have a real community and a real group of friends here, like right now. Um, I didn't think that that would happen. I didn't think that that would be a part of the show. And the show itself was amazing, but what happened in real life and knowing all of you guys has actually been my favorite part of Arrow. Very cool." -- Fan Q: "What is your heritage?" JH: "My heritage. I'm mixed, so my mom is from the Dominican Republic, but her mom, my grandma, is half-Chinese, half-Dominican. And my grandpa, her dad, is half-Chinese - I'm sorry, half-Dominican, half-African. So Dominican, African, Chinese on my mom's side. And I'm Russian and Hungarian on my dad's side. A real mixed salad." -- Fan Q: "Do [you] speak Hebrew or any other language?" JH: "Uh, I speak some Hebrew. Um, my French is decent. And I should speak Spanish fluently because it's my mom's first language, but I only understand it pretty fluently and speak it not so great. It's - it's frustrating. Actually, learning Spanish, becoming better at Spanish, is something I really want to do during this quarantine. And I'm also trying to learn Farsi, which is a really beautiful language. The meanings of the words in Farsi, uh, are also poetic and, I mean, it's literally like speaking poetry. It's so, so, so pretty." -- Fan Q: "How does the mask you wear on Arrow stay on?" JH: "Oh, a lot of people are wondering - curious about that. So it's glue or tape - not like Elmer's Glue or Scotch Tape. It's - you know, it's special like makeup tape and glue. If we're doing a lot of stunts, then we'll kind of, like, glue little dots all around. And if we're just like, you know, standing and talking scene, then we'll, um, then we'll just tape the edges on with special tape. One year - what was it? Season 5? Season 5, uh, Echo, um - I don't know why this was the case. This was the year that he - every time he changed into - every time we suited up, his - his braids appeared. He caught - he caught so much crap for how quickly he could braid his hair, poor guy. But they actually like had to paint on his mask. And, yeah, I think after that year, it just - it just - it was too much. So the tape and the glue stuck."
  15. Arrow's Black Canary Hasn't Seen the Birds of Prey Movie By NICOLE DRUM - May 23, 2020 https://comicbook.com/tv-shows/news/arrow-black-canary-juliana-harkavy-birds-of-prey-movie/
  16. -- Drew Scott: "So when you're at home, is a part of what you have to do just for your shows and everything that you have to keep up your hardcore training, like your super ninja training?" KM: "Well, this is the thing. Right now, I'm in limbo, in between. We did a backdoor pilot for an Arrow spinoff, which we don't know if it's going... But I've always been an athlete, in the sense that I've danced my whole life and I used to play softball. But since doing all of these shows, fitness has become something that I do for me, and it's - it's my little [unintelligible word] that I take a couple hours [unintelligible words], turn off my phone and put on Netflix or a podcast or an audiobook, and just do something good for me...."
  17. Yesterday (May 23) KM had an instagram live chat with Drew & Linda Scott (one of HGTV's Property Brothers and his wife)... You can also watch this podcast episode here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4teVP67EFtk -- Drew Scott: "So you have all the superhero action that you do, and you have Arrow, uh, Batwoman? ... (KM interjected, "On the crossover, I was on a bunch of episodes on a bunch of the different shows") ... Where did that come from, getting to play like superhero type character and also kicking butt in Shadowhunters?" KM: "So that was sort of an accident that I just fell into this sort of ass-kicking genre for the last several years. Uh, but it was - it was certainly an advantage coming from Shadowhunters to Arrow, 'cause our stunt coordinators on Shadowhunters trained me like three to five times a week, taught me everything I know. And then when I was cast in Arrow, I found out that not only was my daughter of the Green Arrow but also a street fighter. So I ended up carrying those new skills over into the new show, which was great. But there are some very special moments in this crazy world of entertainment that we all work in where you just kind of have to pinch yourself. And one of those was the crossover for the - the Arrow world, because when you have Superman and the Flash and the Green Arrow and Batwoman and Supergirl all on set, you're in your own super suit, you go, this - this is cool." DS: "That's amazing, yeah... As a young kid, so when I was growing up, I did martial arts, I did karate, but I never got to do - as a young actor, I never got to do any fighting or martial arts. And my dream was always to be a superhero. Uh and then when I was a young adult, I was on Smallville. I - I was actually a body double for Tom Welling for Superman. And then, um, I just had some - some bit parts up, and I remember being around there, and then you saw like Justin Hartley from This Is Us. He was Arrow, I think, right? ... Yeah. And so I remember chatting with him back in the day and then seeing all they would bring in all the crossovers, other big characters, I remember thinking like, this is like - this is the best thing ever, to be a part of something like that. And to learn to kick butt." KM: "Yeah, exactly. But what really happens is you have enough of us, you know, that started in theater and have been doing this forever, and so in between takes, they'll call 'cut' and Melissa, Grant and I are [unintelligible word] tap dancing." DS: "That's also what superheroes." LS: "That's what we want to see. We want to see superheroes tap dancing, like, in - in costume." KM: "Well, I'm dying to do a musical episode. So maybe, you know, next year we'll have to be creative with the crossover... but we'll see." -- DS: "Were you singing before you got into acting, because I had no idea hyou were singing - about your singing until I saw something posted recently about the song that you wrote." KM: "Oh, yeah, yeah... I started in musical theater, so all of that - I've been a dancer my whole life. But everything else kind of started when I entered this whole industry... Recently I released a song and all of the proceeds are going to World Heath Organization...." LS: "What's the name of the song?" KM: "It's called 'Just Like James.' It's a bit of a play on James Bond and the entire song is a pun. Um, I didn't write it. I heard it. A friend wrote it and I heard it and had to do it." -- DS: "What's keeping you busy in lockdown?" KM: "I've been doing a lot of working out. I've been doing a lot of reorganizing my house. But I've also been house hunting, as you know. So that's been a fun process of, you know, being in my house so much [unintelligible words] what I want and need for work. I've also been hiking and kind of exploring L.A. a little bit, because I've never here." -- DS: "So when you're at home, is a part of what you have to do just for your shows and everything that you have to keep up your hardcore training, like your super ninja training?" KM: "Well, this is the thing. Right now, I'm in limbo, in between. We did a backdoor pilot for an Arrow spinoff, which we don't know if it's going... But I've always been an athlete, in the sense that I've danced my whole life and I used to play softball. But since doing all of these shows, fitness has become something that I do for me, and it's - it's my little [unintelligible word] that I take a couple hours [unintelligible words], turn off my phone and put on Netflix or a podcast or an audiobook, and just do something good for me..." -- DS:"What was your childhood like? ... Is your personality very similar to what you were like as a kid or is it very different?" KM: "I think my personality is pretty similar. I've always been - I've always been a little bit of a grandma in a sense... I spent most of my time at my grandparents' house. They have this gorgeous home in the middle of the woods in Kansas City. And all of my time [was spent] cooking with my grandparents or in the backyard wandering in the woods. And that - that's always been what home is to me. You know, they sort of brought the outdoors in and have all this stonework in their house that was - the land that they bought originally was a rock quarry... So there's a pond in the back... So they have this gorgeous property, but they'll end up in the kitchen all the time, just sitting around snacking." -- DS: "Are you learning to cook or are you a good cook while you're at home?" KM: "I'm definitely a baker, but I know enough to feed myself. I've been experimenting a little bit with, you know, whatever rations are left over in my house, since I'm trying not to go to the store very much. ... I found this old recipe for - it's called like Depression Cake or it's like a World War recipe or from the Great Depression as well... It's like a rum raisin cake. Really good." DS: "Terrible name, but great tasting, it sounds like." LS: "Send us the recipe." -- DR asked KM what was something that she'd want to change about herself. KM replied that this lockdown has made take time to do things like read or sit out in the sun and meditate, because she's usually such a workaholic.
  18. Arrow's Michael Rowe Has "Unfinished Business" With Deadshot By RUSS BURLINGAME - May 23, 2020 https://comicbook.com/tv-shows/news/arrow-michael-rowe-creation-entertainment-virtual-con/
  19. Only transcribed selected portions... The Compass Podcast - Episode 158: Charlie Barnett May 22, 2020 https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/the-compass-with-leah-walsh/e/69840552 https://broadwaypodcastnetwork.com/the-compass/episode-158-charlie-barnett/ -- Leah Walsh (The Compass Podcast): "What do you do to keep from going to the dark side as an artist?" Charlie Barnett: "Ooh, that's a hard one. Um, it's a - it's a tightrope walk for me... At risk of sounding masochistic, I do enjoy as an artist going - exploring the dark side, I'll say. I think you have to be comfortable with it. If you're not, why are you doing this, you know? ... 'Comfortable' may be a strong word, but you have to at least be brave enough to go to those places. And so, for me, I've - I've realized, you know, unwillingly a lot of the time, in getting to those places in a natural spot in my life or as an artist, you know, in school and sh*t like that or just the strife of everything going around you, utilizing it and seeing how it can kind of like relay in your performance, um, I've started to, you know, at 32, appreciate the dark side of myself and my mind, and it's changed my relationship with them. But, I will say, in order to protect myself, because you always need, you know - there's the dark side of, like, I'm playing a suicidal alcoholic, but he's beautiful, you know? But then there's the dark side of, like, I just walked into five auditions and these people didn't give me the time of day, and they gave me nine extra pages to read in the room, and I hate myself and hate everything that I do, and I'm not creative and talented. That kind of dark side is extremely dangerous." LW: "What does that mean to you when I say that? Those are two good categories." CB: "It's terrifying, um, but I also know that it kinda comes with the territory. Um, the way that I get through it is creating conversations with myself. And it's a lot of f**kin' work, it's time, it's like that - that muscle has not been worked to its fullest for me, I know. ... I'm not great at it right now, but it's getting better and better, and it's getting quicker and quicker. And it's becoming easier and easier for me to be like, oh, that's one of those moments, getting dark on myself. 'Cause the key is, as much as those people are assholes or treated you like sh*t in that room that you walked into or, you know, you felt like you didn't do as well as you could do, the majority of the time it's all in your own head. Whether or not it's true or not, cool. ... You're the one who's punishing yourself the majority of the time. Not to say it's not incredibly difficult to stop that, but that's what I notice in myself. If I could change that conversation in my head, I can change the darkness. ... You can't take it personally. And what I've learned, when you learn how to not take it personally, it protects you. 'Cause, who cares either way? I'm good enough that I will continue to work, get better. I will apply what I feel I was lacking in that audition to my next one, to be better." -- LW: "Over the course of your career, how has your relationship to auditioning changed?" CB: "A lot. Um, you know, auditioning's a muscle, right? ... That's so funny to say, but it is really true. It's a muscle. I have a lovely relationship with it, 'cause it is - it's a workout for me. It's just like going to a gym... You see that it's so necessary. Uh, God, this is such a layered one for me! It's like the fear aspect - I really like because it shakes me up, makes me f**kin' humble. You know, you walk into a room and you feel like you have some power or clout. And you walk into a room and look at the people around and feel that kind of judgment. I don't want to say you feel turned down on yourself, because it's not the same as, like, beating yourself up. But you feel a sense of humbleness when you're like, oh, these people are probably just as talented as me and do just as much. And that reminds me that I need to keep f**kin' working. You know? I need to keep applying all my best that I can to get better and better. So I really love auditioning for that. I just think it keeps me moving. Um, but there is a sense of - and maybe I'm being really selfish in this, but I will admit this right now to actors, to us artists. You get to a place where you're like, oh my God, I'm in my career and I've been doing this for awhile. I watch, like, you know, so many of our friends get offers left and right. They don't have to audition any more. And I'm like, wh - when do you get to that point? And, God knows, it's lovely - it would be a lovely time to be able to just get a call and be like, we love what you do, you don't need to work for us, we want you to have it. But I - I'm not there. ... It's like, I'm terrified of that moment coming, because I feel like it's a part of the start of a downfall that makes you really lazy as an actor. It makes you stop, like, needing to work so hard, you know? 'Cause you're like, f**k, what do I need to work so hard? I got the call. Um, but there's another side of me that, just talking about auditioning, I feel like I'm just pushing into a point of being like, I'm just waiting for them to not - not audition me anymore, just be calling me." -- Some talk about CB's Juilliard School experience. CB: "You know, my experience at Juilliard was not awesome. That being said, I still respect and love it, and cherish it, but it was not awesome. Um, and there was a lot of mental strife for me. Um, and because of that, I did not believe in myself upon exiting. Um, I think by Showcase, I had started, like - I hate to admit this, because it's so shallow in a certain way, and I'm going to turn back to my mom, because my mom's the one who convinced me that this was okay to do, and I guess she kinda changed the frame of it in my mind. But I really, like, started powering down, like, f**k it, I'm just going to work out. I'm going to try to get as fit as I can, for at least like Showcases. So even if my acting doesn't, like, support my talent, which is so sh*tty - I was like, f**k it, like, I see people walk out of here with agents just because they're pretty. So let me try - let me try. And every check, let me check it out of my book. ... Your body is your violin as an actor, and you have to take care of it. You have to make sure that it is in pristine shape. It doesn't mean you have to be the f**kin' Rock. It doesn't mean you have to be a size 0... That means whatever it means for you to be healthy. And it took me a couple - you know, even through that last year of being like, is this all about image or is it about like me being healthy? It took a lot of balance between that. I've come to a place where I'm like, f** abs, I need to work out because it makes me feel mentally able and capable to fight my next day. Um, so I'm really happy with it now. But I had turned into a place, at the end of the year, of being like, I don't know what I'm going to do, but I have to make something work." LW: "And that was you dealing with that - I mean, knowing you as an actor, dealing with that dark side, telling yourself one thing that wasn't true." CB: "Yeah, yeah." LW: "You were prepared, but I'm sure you felt like you weren't." CB: "No, no. And all throughout my life, that little voice that we're talking about, that dark voice... and I think about it now. It is my push, too, you know. so it is that respect... So I hate it, but it keeps me remembering, like, I have to work at all angles. You know? As soon as I was like, oh, so now you're getting fit, you must be a sh*t actor, so go read some f**kin' Chekhov and dissect it. ... Trying to push that voice down and hide it? It never f**kin' works. You end up way worse. If you can learn how to almost like find the balance of listening, accepting, and moving past it, by letting it get out, and getting ahead of it. It's a - it's a weird balance of respect and also like, I control you, thank you for reminding me, but that's not what I need right now. Then its so... valuable, you know what I mean? ... For me, it's why I am able to tap into my emotions... I would never want to lose it, but I need to learn how to control it." -- LW: "Has your experience working on jobs since you became sober, like, has it changed a lot? Like, have you had to reach for different tools?" CB: "Let me clear, um, I - I don't like this term, but a lot of people have coined it, um, I'm California sober... I stopped drinking, yeah. I - I feel like it's important, 'cause... to the community of people that are sober, I understand that's very important... I am not entirely sober, um, and I respect, you know, the people that are... I don't know, just for me, it's like - it needs to be clarified... I didn't go through a lot of the program. I didn't go through AA. I had gone to a lot of meetings. I took a lot of the tools from it. And I utilized almost everything from the meetings, but didn't go to the meetings.... But yes, of course, yeah, it changed a lot. Um, some for the better, some not. You know, as soon as I stopped drinking, I thought - and I don't know if you had this experience, but I was like, oh my God, everything's going to fall into place, all my problems are going to like figure themselves out... I'm going to be like the best ever. Um, and that did not happen at all. Um, I still have to work very hard at solving many other things. The cool thing is, I'm a lot more capable at solving them, because I don't have this crutch or this kind of scapegoat. I will say, too, I cherish and really respect drinking. I see it as a tool for people. I misused that tool. I abused it. And I know there are a lot of people that do. But I have nothing and no problem with people drinking. I think it should be used as - you know, use it how you can and when you can, in the safest way possible for you. Myself? Can't do that. ... So, yes, uh, in one aspect, nothing changed... to a certain extent, except for things within myself, which are so much more important in the long run. Um, on a work scope, I can't deny - you know, I stopped drinking and suddenly, like, all these jobs came. You know? None of them were offers, again. But like - I finished Russian [Doll] and I - I have to say, too, so many people on that set, such as the crew, the creative staff, were sober - entirely sober, not California sober. Um, a lot of them had done the program. And I had started so many conversations with them about it and that's what really initiated me into it. But I was still really terrified. Um, I had one really terrible experience... I was drunk and got lost in the middle of Williamsburg... and fell asleep on the f**kin' street. And woke up to a lovely, lovely Jehovah's Witness woman, who told me that I needed Jesus. As much as I love, love that thought, and appreciate her care and compassion, I took the note. I realized I - I do need Jesus, but I don't know if I'm going to turn to the church, not maybe Jehovah's Witness church. Respect. But no, not for me. Um, and so I decided it was time. It was time I needed to do this... or I was going to lose everything. And I'm so glad that I did, because then I got Tales [of the City] after that, um, and I got Arrow, and I got that - uh, Jamie Babbit called me to do a movie with Drew Barrymore. That was actually - that was an offer, but only an offer because they lost, I think, the actor that was doing it, so it was kind of like a favor [unintelligible word]... She was like, we lost somebody and we need someone, can you do this? And I was like, yeah, what, yeah... I think about it sometimes and I'm like, there isn't maybe a correlation but - ... I do believe that stopping drinking has allowed me to utilize my emotional craft better and understand it clearer." -- LW: "How long after graduation did you get Chicago Fire?" CB: "Two years." -- CB: "I don't want to be a hypocrite and say that I haven't been an asshole, because I probably have. But majority of the time, the only people I'm f**kin' assholes to are actors being assholes to f**kin' crew members. It enrages me. Because it's like, you know what power you have. Like, why would you misuse that right now? Like, go yell at a producer. Fine, cool, I don't give a sh*t. Make sure you don't get your ass fired. But like, don't yell at your costumer.
