Arrow: Stephen Amell On Isabel Rochev

Added by chrisdvanne on Oct 16, 2013 | 2 COMMENTS

Infos and scoops keep coming on Summer Glau's character Isabel Rochev. This time, Stephen Amell gave an interview to IGN, inwhich he alluded to Oliver Queen's relationship with Isabel Rochev.

Oliver Queen and Isabel Rochev in Arrow 2x01 City of Heroes

Find below an excerpt:

IGN TV: The premiere also introduced Summer Glau as the Isabel Rochev character. And I guess the status quo it set up for these two characters is that they're forced to work together to save Queen Consolidated. Do you see this as an antagonistic relationship, or is there potential for a deeper relationship there?
Amell: There's certainly potential for a deeper relationship. I read on a few outlets that Summer had been cast as Isabel Rochev, "a new villain on Arrow," and I certainly haven't seen anything through eight episodes that would suggest she's a villain. She is a business person. She's a very strong-willed person. And she has a deep interest in Queen Consolidated, as does Oliver. The problem for Oliver is he's trying to be CEO, and he's trying to be the public face of, not just Queen Consolidated, but the Queen family. But... [laughs] being CEO isn't the only job he has. He's trying to save Starling City currently, but he can't tell Isabel that. Isabel is constantly thinking that Oliver is irresonsible and flaky. He doesn't show up to things. And he can't say, "Yeah, well, it's because I'm the vigilante." He has to just sort of swallow her discomfort and disapproval and try to win her over despite that.
IGN TV: I think people are quick to label her a villain just because that's how the character was more or less portrayed in the comics.
Amell: Right.
Read full interview at IGN.

In another interview for spoilersguide, Stephen Amell shed new light on Oliver Queen's relationship with Isabel Rochev:

"He is the face of the Queen family and he really is the CEO of Queen Consolidated without any formal business training whatsoever. It’s a whole new set of problems because he’s out of his depth. Saving the company is really important to him. We see him struggle with that”. Amell went on to talk villains saying “I’ve read a lot of places saying Isabel Rochev is a villain, but I certainly haven’t seen that yet. The way they’ve designed the character is that she is trying to actually save the company. This is what she does. He is continually proving to be irresponsible in her eyes because she doesn’t know that being CEO isn’t the only job that he has. It’s creating tension between the two of us”.

Don't miss Arrow season 2 episode 2 titled 'Identity' on Wednesdays at 8/7c!
It's gonna be really interesting to see which way the Isabel and Oliver relationship is heading. Meanwhile, check out the Arrow teaser for an upcoming episode featuring Isabel and Felicity competing to gain Oliver's attention.

Who else thinks "romance" when Stephen Amell says "deeper relationship"?

If they choose to go other way than just the regular villain and explore much "deeper" wink and complex relations. I would be happy if so and if they don't just end it in the usual sudden change & sharp change at the end just before they cut Isabel from the series. (similar to the Huntress tho there they tried to play sort of "see it coming", tho not sure if they really wanted to go that way or they just couldn't do it). For once more I'd be happy to see the things go in a slightly different direction than the comic book. Not only bcs it's Summer Glau! but bcs I find it more interesting and compelling. Plus it adds this sorta special thing that tv shows like The Revenge series and other drama only (or mostly) oriented have. I think it will be really interesting and will also possible add new viewers to the show if they keep it the level they have now. As in quality I mean.

I don't know if it's exactly drama, but I will surely enjoy to watch the emotions and sparks that Oliver & Isabel will possibly exchange. smile
