“Treat her like a fighter, but don’t hit her too hard in the face” – James Bamford
Earlier today I shared a TVLine interview Katie Cassidy had done. Arrow Fight Co-ordinator James Bamford kindly clarified the quote and shed some light on Katie’s training for Season 3.
@ARROWTV_ Bullshit! Our first training session together I told her to bring a mouth guard and I did hit her exactly in the face…..

Arrow is a hardcore show!
In season 3 Katie’s character, Laurel, trains with Ted “Wildcat” Grant (J.J Ramirez) in the aftermath of her sister’s death. Ted is a former boxer who runs a gym for underprivileged youth.
Everyone hopes to see a stronger, kickass Laurel Lance in Season 3.
