“I can’t take David Ramsay down. I don’t think anyone can. His arm is the size of my body,” Katie Cassidy pointed out when discussing her intense daily workout routine that includes boxing. She demonstrated some of her moves on Moisés Chiullán who presided over almost every single panel.
Apart from her acting, Cassidy also has a lifestyle brand, Tomboy KC. She wants to expand it into clothing, including men’s clothing.
“Sharknado? Sure,” she said, agreeing to the possibility of being in it. “What’s that?”
Audience and Chiullán fills her in on the successful Syfy film series.
“So, there’s a tornado of sharks? Can I be a shark?”
After finding out that wouldn’t be an option, Cassidy changed her answer to, “Then no, I don’t want to die.”
Cassidy is open to being on America’s Ninja Warrior, “Sure”.
She was also asked about Supernatural.
“When they killed me off…all these people love killing me off, the contract I signed, I could still be on the show if they hadn’t done that,” Cassidy said before later adding since deaths don’t always mean an end to that character, “And we all film in Vancouver…”
However, most of the audience wanted to know about Arrow and what might happen for her character. One questioner laid out how Black Siren could be redeemed.
“I really hope they decide to do this…there is a chance of redemption for her…I think that it would be interesting and really hard but a lot of fun at the same time.”
There were some questions she had to refuse.
DC or Marvel?
“I’d lose my job!”
Arrow or The Flash?
“I love my job!”

In this one for comicbook.com, she talked about Black Siren’s backstory and her chances of redemption:
“Yes, I think the more we learn about her backstory and what her relationship was like with Oliver, absolutely,” said Cassidy. “I think it will make sense in the end and not necessarily make her as bad of a person. You might be like “Oh, okay that makes sense.” Yes, I do think we’ll know more.””.
Cassidy also believes there is a chance at becoming something more than a villain, giving fans something that they can relate to.
“Yes, I do think there’s a chance at redemption for her. I think there will be people who understand when she has the opportunity and once we learn what she’s gone through, why she is the way that she is. I think people will be able to relate to it, have sympathy for her. I think there’s a chance at really helping her get back to who she is at her core, and potentially not be so crazy, and have a good side to her, but I think as time goes on we’ll learn that.”
