ETOnline has published another interview with Summer Glau, only a few hours before an all-new episode of Arrow airs on The CW. Summer talks about tonights episode 'Crucible', how she approached her character Isabel Rochev and give a few hints about what's about to come for Isabel on the show.
Find an exceprt below:
ETonline: How similar would you say this Isabel is to the comic version?
Glau: I think the writers are inspired by the comics but I love how they’ve adapted the show for TV; I think they’re very fluid and flexible about how they tell the story and intertwine the characters. As much as I beg them to tell me what’s coming up, they’re so good at keeping everything under wraps. But I think it’ll be a mixture of both.
ETonline: Speaking of costumes, what was it like showing up to set in such a form-fitting skirt given your penchant for playing characters who tussle?. Did you say, “I’m never gonna be able to kick someone in this?”
Glau: [laughs] I did! I did! But it’s been a great challenge for me to show power and authority through dialogue as opposed to climbing across the boardroom table and getting physical, which is what I’ve done in the past. It was an adjustment though; my first day on set I was nervous because it’s different for me to the one wearing heels and diamonds. She’s powerful and dangerous but in a more subtle, sophisticated way. Which is good for me.
ETonline: How do you describe her role in tonight’s episode, Crucible?
Glau: She’s integrated herself more into the company and Oliver’s realizing he won’t be able to get rid of Isabel any time soon. She’s trying to rein him in and it’s not working. One of the other fun things I love about this episode is Isabel’s relationship with Felicity. They’re opposite kinds of women and seeing them in these awkward situations where Felicity is trying to cover for Oliver and Isabel is on to her is just so funny. And Emily [Bett Rickards] is just a doll.[...]

great Interview I bet deep down summer is choking to kick somebody`s butt, but as she says its a great challenge for her and as long as she is enjoying her role as Isabel Rochev, that`s all that matters, exciting times a-head from a few hints from summer sounds like they are keeping their cards close to their chest. nice one summer keep an eye on Oliver he will eventually give in to your charming smile.

Can't wait to watch! I can exactly picture the look on Rochev's face glaring at Felicity as she spots a lie 'and Isabel is on to her', I think it will be funny too. And where do all these prints come from?! I like the one with Oliver 'stuck in the middle' and Felicity's famous bagels also in shot :P.
