Thanks to Just Jared, our gallery has been updated with images of Willa out in West Hollywood last tuesday (May 20).
In a recent interview for Collider, John Barrowman – who plays Thea Queen’s father Malcolm Merlyn in “Arrow” – talked about watching Willa in The O.C. and working with her on the show.
Your characters really only passed by each other before, but now there’s a definite shift in the dynamic between Malcolm and Thea. What’s it been like to work with Willa Holland, in this capacity?
BARROWMAN: I used to watch Willa on The O.C., as an avid fan, when my niece was growing up. That was our show that we would connect with and watch together. Ironically, we were both watching it for the same reason – for the hot guys in it. But, Willa is this amazing presence. She’s a wonderful young actress. It’s funny ‘cause she’s also got a really out there sense of humor, just like me. When she and I are on set together, we’ve actually said to each other, “We’re gonna have to rein this in and keep it under control.” The camera stops and we’re just nuts. I love to have a good time, but I love getting the work done, and she’s the same way. We’re known to have a bit of fun. The fact that our characters had never crossed is what made it even more surprising, when it was revealed that I was her father. It’s like, “Oh, my god!,” because you just never thought.
Barrowman also talked about playing Thea’s father and how the idea came up. If you’ve already watched the 2nd season of “Arrow” or don’t mind ocasional spoilers, you can read the complete interview here.
