Sometimes, a red carpet interview spins out of control and the result is way more interesting than anything you were likely to have done anyway.
During a Comic Con Interview with Arrow's leading lady Emily Bett Rickards, we were joined by series regular Echo Kellum, who brought out Rickards's playful side. Rather than trying to finish our interview with Rickards and pull one or both of them back on track, we went with the more entertaining option of egging them on, asking among other things: "Can you tell me more about 'sexy threats?'"
“Sexy threats are those ones where you look at someone drunk like this,” Rickards said, giving a vacant, eyes-half-open stare, “And then you say ‘you’re going down,’ and it’s so hot, like ‘Whoa,’ but also it’s a threat.”
Prior to the camera rolling, Rickards had jokingly come up with a "million-dollar idea" and said that we had to kill the camera man so she didn't have to share her fortune, so...well, even before Echo came along, it was a fun Comic Con morning.
Arrow returns in October.
After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. He returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice. As the Green Arrow, he protects his city with the help of former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), his vigilante-trained sister Thea Queen (Willa Holland), Deputy Mayor Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum), and his new recruits, street-savvy Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez) and meta-human Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy).
Oliver has finally solidified and strengthened his crime-fighting team only to have it threatened when unexpected enemies from his past return to Star City, forcing Oliver to rethink his relationship with each member of his “family”.
