Arrow - Season 1 - Emily Bett Rickards interview

Thanks to Bruce_F for the heads up.

Congratulations on being promoted to series regular! How excited were you when you found out?
Emily Bett Rickards: Oh my gosh, I was beside myself. I was really flattered. We're all excited to get a second season.

Felicity has sort of joined the Scooby Gang, even though she's only doing it to help track down Walter. What will her role in the group look like now?
Rickards: It creates a certain dynamic that was different from what Olivier and Diggle had because she's the polar opposite of Diggle in a sense that she hasn't seen anyone die and this isn't actually her regular day job. Her role now is to help them solve different crimes in Starling City as well as creating a different balance to the group that the audience, and Olivier and Diggle, will enjoy as well. She's got that awkward, quirky spunk. As much as she's socially inadequate, she's always so gung-ho to hack into something. She's really smart. I find her emotional depth and her emotional capacity interesting because she's so socially awkward.

Will we get to see her in the field since her forte is more about working with computers?
Rickards: We do see a little bit of that in Wednesday's episode. She does get into a little bit of trouble coming along with Diggle and Oliver to the scene of the crime, if you will. But she does stay in the Foundry with the computers and helps him that way as well. We'll get a little taste of it and hopefully a little more in the future too.

She set boundaries in saying she's only helping when it comes to Walter, but will we see those lines begin to blur?
Rickards: Her lines won't necessarily blur, but they start to shift. They start to change over the course of getting deeper and deeper into it. As soon as you witness some of the seedy things happening, you can't un-witness them. There's an innocence that's lost. She's doing this to find Walter. She has strict morals. She doesn't want to see good people get hurt and die. She starts to have more respect for what they're doing because they're trying to protect the city. [But] there's the question always in her mind: Who am I becoming? Should we be giving these people a chance to redeem themselves?
