Where There’s Smoak, There’s a Career on Fire for Emily Bett Rickards!

Timing is everything when writing about what’s happening with the career of Vancouver actor Emily Bett Rickards. Ever since she became a series regular on “Arrow” (as Oliver Queen’s I.T. expert, Felicity Smoak) our Google Alerts have been pinging full time.

Emily wrapped season 2 of “Arrow” in April and spent the hiatus shooting the upcoming feature “Brooklyn” with Saoirise Ronan (based on the novel by Nicholas Hornby) and traveling the world promoting “Arrow” for the CW, including another trip to the network upfronts in New York.

Now she’s back on set for season 3 with an intriguing love interest (Brandon Routh), at least two crossover episodes of “The Flash” and an MTV Teen Choice nomination for “Choice TV Female Breakout Star”! A few weeks ago it was announced that Felicity will be a major part of future Green Arrow comic books.

Olicity fans (Google it) are tweeting overtime trying to keep up.

It’s been an amazing ride and…this just in…Emily is on an “Arrow” panel at Comic-Con in San Diego this month.

Luke Camilleri Adds More Heat to “Hemlock Grove”

Luke Camilleri is the new bad-boy in the Netflix original series “Hemlock Grove”. He plays Andreas Visilescu, a love interest for sexy psychic/con-artist Destiny (Kaniehtiio Horn). Luke will recur throughout season 2 and viewers will want to find out for themselves if he is simply a pleasant distraction for Destiny or if there is more to this mysterious gypsy?

“Hemlock Grove” is based on Brian McGreevy’s novel of the same name and stars Famke Janssen and Dougray Scott. The show received two Primetime Emmy Awards nominations for its first season.

A Vancouver boy, Luke relocated to Toronto for several months during shooting. As is the way of Netflx, all episodes are now up for viewing. Luke is a familiar face on television, with guest star appearances on CW’s “Supernatural”, USA’s “Facing Kate” and his Leo Award nominated performance on CBC’s “Arctic Air”. He has also appeared on “Fringe”, “Eureka”, “Caprica” and “Once Upon a Time”.
