Emily Bett Rickards[1] (born July 24, 1991) is a Canadian actress, known for portraying Felicity Smoak on The CW television series Arrow as well as its spinoff series The Flash, Vixen, Legends of Tomorrow and related show Supergirl.

Early life[edit]

Rickards was born and raised in British Columbia. Her mother is Dr. Diane Greig, a dream psychotherapist in Vancouver, BC.[2][3][4]

Beginning on her career path at a young age, she introduced herself to musical theatre and dance, with the hope of later introducing herself to more serious acting. She graduated from high school early and attended the Vancouver Film School, completing the Acting Essentials Program. After completing the program, she attended an open call audition, which gained her an agent.[1] She studied at the Alida Vocal Studio in Vancouver.[5]

Career[edit]

Rickards made her first professional appearance in 2009, starring in the video for the Nickelback single “Never Gonna Be Alone“. In early 2012 she filmed a minor role in the film Random Acts of Romance, starring Amanda Tapping[6] and in May filmed a minor role in Flicka: Country Pride, which starred her future Arrow castmate Kacey Rohl.[7] Her breakthrough role came in the same year with her first television casting, as Felicity Smoak in the TV series Arrow.[8] Originally signed as a one-episode guest star,[9] positive reaction from her co-star Stephen Amell[10] and from Warner Brothers producer Peter Roth[11][12] before the show aired, led to her being signed on as a recurring star for the rest of show’s first season. The success of the character, coupled with positive fan response, led to her being made a series regular from the second season onwards.[9][13][14] Rickards went on to portray the character in the spin-off shows to the series (collectively known as the Arrowverse) The Flash,[15] Legends of Tomorrow[16] and Supergirl,[17] as well as providing the voice for the character on animated show Vixen.[18] In 2013, she portrayed Felicity in web-based promotional tie-in series Blood Rush, sponsored by Bose, which also featured the characters of Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) and Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), .[19] In 2016, Rickards portrayal of the character was placed at number 15 in a list of 50 Favourite Female Characters, in a poll of Hollywood professionals conducted by The Hollywood Reporter.[20]

In late 2012 she was cast in the Lifetime television movie Romeo Killer: The Chris Porco Story,[21] which was filmed in early 2013. A fictionalized account of the murder and attempted murder of Peter and Joan Porco, respectively, Rickards played the role of Lauren Philips, a fictionalized love-interest of the killer, Chris Porco.

In March 2014, Rickards was cast in the sequel to Cowgirls ‘n Angels, entitled Cowgirls ‘n Angels: Dakota’s Summer, as Kristen Rose, the sister of the film’s protagonist, Dakota, portrayed by Haley Ramm. The film premiered at the 2014 Dallas International Film Festival.[22]

2015 saw Rickards in a supporting role in the Oscar nominated film Brooklyn.[23] Rickards auditioned for the role with director John Crowley via a Skype call from her agents office. Her scenes were filmed in Montreal, and speaking about the filming experience she noted “Everyone was so artistic and so meticulous about being respectful of the era and the story, that I’m not surprised with the turnout of how beautiful and well crafted the film is”.[24]

In early 2016, Rickards filmed the role of narrator Genevieve Creme for the Canadian web-series Paramormal Solutions, which was launced online in April of the same year.[25] In June, she appeared in an episode of the fifth season of IFC comedy Comedy Bang! Bang!.[26] 2016 also saw her cast in the movie Slumber, alongside Darby Stanchfield and Meaghan Rath. Filming took place in Los Angeles in May 2016.[27] The film is set to be released in 2018.[28] In the same year she was cast in Aisha Tyler‘s feature film directorial debut, Axis.[29]

Rickards co-starred, alongside Josh Dallas and Tom Cavanagh in the 2016 super-hero themed short film Sidekick, directed by Arrowverse alum Jeff Cassidy.[30] Cassidy was keen for Rickards to take the role of Emma/The Princess, but was initially concerned she looked too young for the role of “rundown, blue collar, life’s been beaten out of her, mother”. However, following consultation with make-up artist Tina Teoli, he was convinced that they could age her appropriately for the role.[31]

In 2017 she starred alongside Jana Winternitz and Matthew Glave in the Michael Gallagher directed comedy film Funny Story.[32] filmed over fifteen days[33] in Los Angeles, and on location at Topanga Canyon and Big Sur.[34] The film premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival in January 2018,[35] where it was runner-up in the festival’s ‘Beyond’ programme.[36] Speaking about casting the role, director Gallagher stated: “We needed an actress who could speak volumes without saying a word. The kind of actor whose heart shines through their eyes. Emily Bett Rickards has these qualities.”[37] Rickards performance as Kim received particular praise from festival critics.[38][39][40] The film went on to win the Stolman Audience Award for Best American Indie at the 2018 Sonoma International Film Festival[41] and in the same year won the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature at the Vero Beach Wine and Film Festival[42] and Best Feature Film at the Santorini Film Festival.[43]

In May 2018 Rickards announced she would be playing the lead role in a production of Zayd Dohrn’s Reborning for Reality Curve Theatre Group, at the Annex Theatre in Vancouver.[44] The production premiered on June 20, 2018.[45] The play was well-received, with Katie Gartlan-Close, of Vancouver Presents, describing Rickards as doing “a pheonomenal job carrying this show” giving a “nuanced portrayal of Kelly”[46] and Jerry Wasserman of the Vancouver Sun commenting “Rickards gives us a painfully powerful Kelly”.[47]

Emily Bett Rickards (born July 24, 1991) is a Canadian actress, known for portraying Felicity Smoak in The CW television series Arrow.

Early life[edit]

Rickards was born and raised in British Columbia. Beginning on her career path at a young age, she introduced herself to musical theatre and dance, with the hope of later introducing herself to more serious acting. She graduated from high school early and attended the Vancouver Film School, completing the Acting Essentials Program. After completing the program, she attended an open call audition, which gained her an agent.[1] She studied at the Alida Vocal Studio in Vancouver.[2]

Career[edit]

Rickards appeared in the video of the Nickelback single “Never Gonna Be Alone” in 2008 and, after some minor roles, was cast as Felicity Smoak in the TV series Arrow in 2012.[3] Originally signed as a one-episode guest star,[4] her chemistry with the show’s star Stephen Amell coupled with positive fan reaction as well as her sarcastic quips led to her first being signed as a recurring co-star in the rest of the first season, and then as a regular character for the second season.[4][5][6] The following year she landed the role of Lauren Phillips in the television movie Romeo Killer: The Chris Porco Story.[7]

In 2015, she had a supporting role in Brooklyn.[8]
