[TV] Emily Bett Rickards Talks About Those Who Want To See Oliver and Felicity Hook Up On Arrow Posted by Joseph Lee on 08.16.2013
And Felicity's home life...
In an interview for the TCA press tour (via Zap2It), Emily Bett Rickards, who plays Felicity Smoak on Arrow, commented on those who want to see Oliver and Felicity hook up on the show.
Emily Bett Rickards, better known as Felicity Smoak on "Arrow," is as big a fan of her character as the rest of us. And she only wants what's best for Oliver's IT sidekick in Season 2. Does that mean that Rickards is hoping for an Oliver-Felicity hookup?
She said: "I like the Olicity shippers! What's really good with Olicity as a duo -- whether it evolves into a relationship or not -- is that it's so honest and so sweet, so kind. I wouldn't want that to disappear just because of a relationship."
She also said that even if it's not with Oliver, Felicity will find love on the show. She added: "We'll see them add another love interest. This is what I've been kind of coming to terms with: I don't know if it will be with Oliver, but I think that she will get a love interest. She's so sweet!"
She also talked about her personal life, which hasn't been shown much on the program. She said: "I feel like she's a cat person. What she does in between working and walking to Verdant from Queen Consolidated is just a mystery to everyone. I mean, she ends up in the same clothes. But what does she do on the way?"
Finally, she commented that Felicity loves caffeine, which isn't around in The Hood's base. She joked: "There's still no coffee machine in there though. Felicity needs coffee!"
