Katie Cassidy Covers Saturday Night Magazine

Katie Cassidy looks fierce in a Foley & Corinna v-neck in this photo for Saturday Night magazine.

Here’s what the 22-year-old Melrose Place actress had to say about playing the complex’s bad girl:

On comparisons between Melrose Place and Gossip Girl: “I think on a stylistic level it’s like the Westside Gossip Girl. It’s edgy, it’s cool, it’s dramatic, it’s young and fun and appeals to all different audiences. And Gossip Girl is really good at what they do, so I’m flattered to be compared to them.”

On playing a character who’s bisexual: “[Ella] is “try-sexual,” meaning she will try anything. She is so open and so free, you never what she is going to do. I think it comes from a place where she is desperately seeking love and acceptance from everyone around her. She doesn’t let anyone see the vulnerability that is there. She definitely puts her guard up and protects herself at all times.”

On what she thinks of the original Melrose Place: “I have actually never seen the original. I wasn’t allowed to when I was younger. My parents wouldn’t let me watch it. I haven’t had time to catch up with it. I didn’t want to watch it until we really get into things so it doesn’t have an effect on my performance…But now that I have had some time to sink into the character, I feel more comfortable going back and watching it and I will.”

    Ella´s character is the best on the show. And Katie is such a amazing actress, she´s pulling the “try-sexual” aspect of Ella pretty good. And she´s always so goodlooking! Like in this photoshoot! Love her in that yellow dress! And btw Jared, you missed 2 pictures! See them @
