Live from the Red Carpet as #MammothFF chats with all the stars from the 2022 Mammoth Film Festival.
Each year the Her Voice panel brings together a new group of inspiring women to share their experiences in the entertainment industry. This year was another big success, adding a mentorship component and pairing our panelists with selected emerging female filmmakers. The women spoke candidly about how the last two years may have changed their career and life trajectory, dealing with imposter syndrome, and the importance of loving who they work with. Moderated by Alexandra Chando with guests Yeardley Smith, Marina Cappi, Katie Cassidy, and Maria Bertrand.

Recently, we had the chance to talk with Katie Cassidy about Arrow, her acting career, and her new movie I Love Us.
Horror Geek Life: You have some family ties in the entertainment industry, so was acting just a natural career choice for you?
Katie Cassidy: It’s funny, I’m the third generation in this industry, and actually, my grandfather played the original Superman on Broadway, which is crazy, but I actually played Baby Jesus, so since I was out of the womb, I’ve been in this business. I was a theater girl, took acting classes. My whole life, I’ve just loved to entertain, so I always say it was in the gene pool, I just woke up like this. I really didn’t get to choose, clearly, this is what I’m supposed to do. It’s more than that, too, I feel like my purpose is to help people any way that I can and the way I know how to do that is by expressing it through creativity.
HGL: You mentioned starting in theater, but you’ve also worked in television and film. Do you have a favorite medium to work in?
KC: I mean, as long as I can relate to the character, there are layers there, and it’s a good project, somehow it inspires me or moves me, it doesn’t really matter what medium or genre it is.
