Katie Cassidy — Crush of the Day
Hereâs one thing weâre pretty sure about â female superheroes are hot. And DC Comicsâ Black Canary is one of the hottest lady heroes of all time. So weâre glad to hear that The CW made a wise decision in casting the crush worthy Katie Cassidy to play Black Canary in the new âArrowâ TV show, which premieres this Wednesday.
The 25-year-old actress plays Dinah Laurel Lance, the character who eventually becomes Black Canary, on the show. While she may not don the tight pleather and/or spandex in the showâs premiere episode, Cassidy says that we could see her character go full-on hero in the future.
“When â if [she becomes Black Canary] is always still a question. You never know with these writers; they could do anything,â she said in a recent interview.
Cassidy isnât new to the CW family. With previous roles in supernatural,â âMelrose Place,â and âGossip Girl,â you could say sheâs one of the networkâs stock hotties. And weâre not complaining.
