What she means:
Over the Garden Wall was honestly the greatest animated mini series I've ever seen, and it kills me a little bit every day that it went so unnoticed and will probably never get the love and recognition that it truly deserves.
Today is Emily Bett Rickards’ birthday.
As any self-respecting CW-viewer knows, Rickards plays Felicity Smoak on The CW’s Arrow. As a key fixture in Arrow’s crime-fighting team, and a major love interest in Oliver Queen’s life, Rickards’ Smoak has gradually grown into a leading star throughout Arrow’s three seasons. She will return to the role later this year when Arrow season four premieres.
Rickards has also played Smoak on the CW’s other superhero series, The Flash. She will also voice the character in the upcoming Vixen animated mini-series, which takes place in Arrow and The Flash’s universe.
Born in Vancouver, Canada, Rickards turns 24 today. Happy Birthday, Emily Bett Rickards!
