Team Arrow assemble! Arrow actors Emily Bett Rickards and David Ramsey will both be joining show star Stephen Amell as guests at this month’s MCM London Comic Con. Rickards plays Felicity Smoak on the hit superhero series, while Ramsey portrays John ‘Spartan’ Diggle. As well as starring in Arrow, Rickards and Ramsey have also appeared on other ‘Arrowverse’ series such as The Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow.
Based on DC’s classic comic book series, Arrow follows the adventures of playboy-turned-vigilante Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), who secretly fights crime as the sharp-shooting Green Arrow. Canadian actor Emily Bett Rickards appears as fan favourite character Felicity Smoak, aka ‘Overwatch’ – a savvy, quick-thinking former IT technician who is recruited by Queen to help in his crusade to clean up Starling City and eventually marries him.
David Ramsey plays another of Oliver Queen’s closest allies – his bodyguard and confidant John Diggle. Named after Green Arrow: Year One writer Andy Diggle – a fellow guest at MCM London – Ramsey’s character is a tough former special forces soldier known by his alter ego ‘Spartan’ – although Diggle also briefly assumes the mantle of the Green Lantern himself. Pop culture fans will also recognise Detroit-born Ramsey as Dexter’s Anton Briggs.
