Q:Hello, I'm new to Arrow, so I was wondering, when did the booming of Olicity fans happened? Was it after their first meeting, or was it a specific moment later on season one?
It built up slowly over the scenes they shared every few episodes but from their first meeting, there was already people who loved Felicity and saw the potential they had as a couple.
They gained fans in S1 whenever they shared scenes but the fandom definitely got much more bigger in S2 because of obvious reasons: Emily promoted as a serie regular, good writing (which has always been the case with them), the development we were seeing in our screen of their relationship, etc..
What’s happening right now is amazing when you think of it: Emily was supposed to be in one episode and here we are.
Q: You were probably a royalty teen in High School?
[Snorts] No. Nope. No. I wasn’t - I really didn’t care for that kind of stuffs so much. I was absorbed in my own little world.
Fan: How “delicious” it’s been for you playing different sides of Regina?
LP: I love Regina’s arc. She started with this void in her heart - badass Evil Queen - realising her potential to love someone. This someone.
