If you’ve ever seen Arrow, you know this actress.
Emily Bett Rickards is a Canadian actress who has played in various series and films including Arrow, Vixen, Sidekick, Dakota’s Summer, Brooklyn, and Legends of Tomorrow. I know her as the computer wiz and word vomit queen, Felicity Smoak, in the Arrow and I couldn’t help but immediately fall in love with her character.
Not only was Felicity smoak blunt, funny, and real, she was absolutely beautiful in a way that didn’t make me jealous, but makes me happy. Although Miss Smoak is just a character, Emily Bett Rickards actually seems to embody those qualities that make Felicity so likable. Not to mention her looks. I mean, look at these shots.
Emily attended Vancouver Film School after high school, then went to study at Alida Vocal Studio. Before writing this post, I had never heard her sing, but of course she’s got a gorgeous voice.
Emily Bett Rickards has an aura of realism and positivity that doesn’t leave her, no matter what. Here’s a lighting round interview to show you what I mean.
