  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (15)

    • Emily: (on her ability to work with computer and the parallel with her character in Arrow, Felicity Smoak) Well, I'm not terrible. [Laughs] I did grow up when computers were being used in school -- even though in elementary school they were fairly new -- so I'm not like my mom. But I'm also not fantastic with them. I definitely can't break into traffic lights and hack into systems. I've got Apple TV, but I can't figure out iCloud.

    • Emily: (on her role in Arrow being from a small 1 episode role to a regular on the show) Looking back on it, it was just a whirlwind at first, and it's still a dream come true. It was episode three of Season 1 where I went and auditioned for the part. It was a "possibly recurring" role, but possible doesn't end up happening a whole lot -- or ever. [Laughs] So when I got a recurring role, I was really excited and just crying and happy. I got to keep coming back, and I cannot express to you how much I've been able to learn working on the show and growing with Felicity. I've never been able to grow with a character for this long -- across two seasons!

    • Emily: (on her scenes with actor Grant Gustin in his role as Flash) They're really fun, they're really flirty and they're really smart. Both of them are extremely intelligent characters and I think the audience will enjoy that. Grant is a great actor. We had a great time filming and I think that will show on-camera too.

    • Emily: Every time the words "...final destination..." are said in or around the airport I scan the area for all potential life threats.

    • Emily: Dogs don't talk so they can keep all your secrets.
