Arrow: First Photos of Katie Cassidy as Black Canary

by Clarissa / November 12, 2014

Laurel Lance watched her sister die on the season premiere of Arrow and that has propelled her into an interesting storyline this season as she realizes her comic book fate of becoming the Black Canary.

We’ve seen Laurel take up boxing and fight training with newcomer Ted Grant and this is going to propel her into her new role. Recently, Cassidy said “Caity Loitz was the Canary, and that was her take on it, and I think she very much possibly inspires Laurel to take over the role of the Black Canary. And Laurel, I think from Season 2 to Season 3, you can see physically a change in her, and then also, Laurel is very emotional, and cries a lot, but I do feel like she’s a very strong person, and I do feel like she has the drive, and the strength, and I think that she would be that strength that Sara was, but more internally.”

Don’t miss an all new episodes of Arrow airing at 8;00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
