Arrow - Interview with David Ramsey (Diggle)

Thanks to maplewhite1912 for the heads up.

TVLINE | To date, how would you describe Diggle’s relationship with Oliver? What did he think Oliver was up to during his absences?

Diggle, being the cautious, observant person that he is, nderstands that there’s much more to Oliver than meets the eye. If you remember, he threw the knife across the room and saved his life in one of the episodes. … He got out of the car while Diggle was driving in a way that’s humanly impossible. So Diggle’s antennas are up, and he’s very suspicious that Oliver could be hiding something. But all of that, as you can see at the end of Episode 3, will come out at the beginning of Episode 4. Diggle’s going to have to make a decision about what Oliver has revealed to him.

TVLINE | I understand this week’s episode marks a big step in shedding the secrecy between their characters.

He is propositioned by Oliver. He’s told that he was brought here for a reason and that Oliver has a great deal of respect for him. Oliver can’t do it all alone. Ultimately, he needs him. And Diggle has to make a decision about that and what he’s going to do with that information.

TVLINE | So how does Oliver feel about someone knowing his secret?

Ultimately, Oliver does realize it’s a good thing for him. … Oliver realizes his limitations in trying to be faithful to his father and getting rid of the people in the book and how that can be done and stay secret at the same time. So he needs help. When he reaches out to Diggle, it’s something that’s planned. He thinks this is the best thing for him.

TVLINE | Does Diggle become the “Alfred” to Arrow’s Batman? Not so much a sidekick, but a confidante?

The one thing that Diggle is not is a sidekick. He looks like he’s a sidekick because he works with him. But you’re not going to see them on a rooftop, costumed, fighting together like a typical sidekick. He has a very strong moral compass. And he keeps Oliver on that moral compass. He reminds Oliver of his own humanity. He reminds Oliver, even in Episode 4, of what killing people does to the human psyche. This is an important element not just of Diggle, but of the whole show – of what is right and our sense of what is right and who deserves it and who doesn’t deserve it. These are the questions that we should be asking ourselves, but Diggle has the voice that we should have. He’s the one that questions things the way that we should question things. Ultimately, you want to see your superhero doing the things he’s meant to do, which is fight and kill bad guys. But there should be a voice someplace in us that says, “Did we kill the right guy?” Diggle, among other things, provides that voice.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
