Caity Lotz, the First Lady of Legends, sings…
What was your reaction when you heard Arrow’s Sara Lance was returning for Legends Of Tomorrow?
I was dead. I was done. It was like, “C’est la vie. I don’t want to be on your show anyway!” Then it was a couple of months later that Andrew and Marc called me into their office and were like, “We have some news.” I wasn’t expecting this. I was like, “They already have Arrow and Flash. How would they do another spin-off?” Then to hear the cast I was gonna be working with – Victor Garber, Brandon, and Wentworth… it was really exciting.
Did the fans bring Sara back?
If she died and everyone was like, “Eh, whatever,” I’m sure they wouldn’t have bothered resurrecting her. But a lot of people connected with her. She’s a well-written, cool character. She’s a tough, international, sexually open assassin. But she’s definitely not just a cold-hearted bitch [laughs]. She’s a very emotional but just kind of torn and tormented character. How would you describe this group’s dynamic?
It’s a mash-up. It’s heroes and villains. It’s not like, “Yay, Power Rangers!” It’s definitely a mismatched group who does not work well together, united by a common cause. Our Bad, Vandal Savage, is a bad guy, who’s lived for thousands of years. So it’s basically like, we’re all gonna die unless we work together [laughs]. So we’ve got to. But there’s gonna be a lot of conflict within the team-up.
