Arrow's Emily Bett Rickards Reveals Fitness Secrets to 'Bello'
Here’s what the 24-year-old Arrow star had to share with the mag:
On what’s ahead for Felicity: “She is sincerely in danger. Felicity is right now completely not on this planet. So, it’s going to be a little bit of a devastation, and it will be interesting on how it’s dealt with. You have to keep in mind how strong she is, and hopefully that strength will prevail and keep her around.”
On her fitness routine: “I work out a lot. I work out very early in the morning, and every late at night, depending on our shooting schedule. I also have two trainers, Brady Roberts and Thomas Taylor. Brady and I have been working together for two years, and Thomas and I started training this year. I just try to keep really active. I enjoy hot yoga and running. It’s a battle though, because you never feel like you’re in your best shape, that’s the problem. Just recently we shot a 14-hour camera day and I had to work out around six thirty in the morning. The thing is is that, if I hadn’t, that focus of surviving the day, it channels into your work. I think it’s having that relaxation while you focus that makes my relaxation and focus in a scene all the more better. I find that I’m more dialed in, when I’ve had time to build that focus in the morning. It helps with the job! [laughs].”
On Brooklyn: “It was cool, not only because it was a period piece, but because everyone was committed to having the project be as authentic as possible. We were even using old school” curlers, wearing six-seven layers under our wardrobe because they wore such extensive undergarments. And of course, cone bras. Every little detail, the set, the lighting. It was such a different and unique experience for me. The part of the film I was in was shot in Montreal. I love Montreal, so I was super excited to be back there, and then to have it turned into Brooklyn for the movie was such a treat.”
