In anticipation of tomorrow's episode of Arrow, Jim Halterman at TV Fanatic chat with Summer Glau about her role as Isabel Rochev, her relationship with Oliver/Felicity, Olliver's charm, Isabel kicking butt, what's about to come for Isabel, and more.
Summer says "in the ep 2.06, Isabel is going to get a lot closer to Ollie, as well as Felicity."
Below is an excerpt from this interview. Follow the link below and head over to TV Fanatic for the complete transcript.
TVF: Are we going to find out more about why she’s so driven in her running of Queen Consolidated?
SG: This one is a really interesting episode between [Isabel] and Oliver. Their growing respect for each other and trying to understand each other’s motivations within the company. In the last episode that I’ve [filmed], they’re starting to hint at her deeper motivations and why she’s so intent on Queen Consolidated and why it means so much to her but it’s just the beginning.
TVF: How does she interact with Felicity in this week’s episode because Felicity is a very different kind of woman than Isabel? Is there a rivalry there?
SG: I definitely have a lot of fun with it as Summer working with Emily. We have a great time together. But I think Isabel is somewhat suspicious of Felicity because throughout Oliver’s behavior, Felicity always seems to be there and Felicity has Oliver’s ear and she has Oliver’s back and I think Isabel wants to get in the middle of that and break it up. She doesn’t like feeling like she’s being left out. She doesn’t know what’s going on and I have a lot of fun playing the comedic side of that story.
TVF: What are you hearing from fans since you started appearing on the show?
SG: I don’t go on because I’m afraid that all the loyal fans of Felicity are just going to be ready to attack Isabel in the street.
