E Online: A Conversation With Arrow’s Kat McNamara, Katie Cassidy, and Juliana Harkavy

The actresses open up about their favorite Arrow episodes and how they’re dealing with quarantine.

Can you believe it’s been months since the end of Arrow?

It’s been so many months that the eighth and final season is available on DVD and Blu-ray, as of today, which you’ve got to admit is perfect for those of us with a lot of time on our hands, or at least those of us who could use a distraction from the wild state of the world. To celebrate the release of the season, which also includes deleted scenes, other special features, and a retrospective doc featuring appearances by the main cast, we sat down and had a virtual chat with leading ladies Kat McNamaraJuliana Harkavy, and Katie Cassidy that somehow hit on the past, present, and future.

That future will hopefully include a future-set spin-off series starring the three of them, about which they are feeling pretty confident, but the present is somehow the bigger question mark right now, thanks to the fact that everything—including all TV production—is now put on hold for the foreseeable future.

E! News: So how is everybody doing right now? How are you handling this wild time? 

Kat McNamara: I’m surviving. Trying to stay creative and find things to do, and stay productive, stay as busy as possible.

Katie Cassidy: Actually this isn’t that difficult to be honest, because I’m just a homebody.

Juliana Harkavy: Same.

Katie: But it’s really interesting because I feel like I’ve gotten more in touch with my creative side. I also feel like my own contractor, like, hmm, I don’t like this wall. Google how to take down a wall. I’ve been painting cupboards and building things.

Juliana: Outside of checking on everybody’s safety and missing friends, it’s been really peaceful. I’ve been gardening a lot, and just thinking about how to make life a little bit more sustainable on our own without needing to go out, so it’s been good.
