Katie Cassidy may no longer be a series regular on CW's hit comic book series, Arrow, but that doesn't mean we're losing any interest in the gorgeous 29-year old actress. In honor of her character's untimely death, we're revisiting Cassidy's mouth-watering Maxim photo shoot and counting the days 'till we're watching her once again every week on the small screen. Here's to you, Katie.
Birthday: November 25, 1986
Hometown: Los Angeles, Calif.
How You Know Her: The daughter of '70s pop star David Cassidy, Katie is nothing like her father: She's still relevant today. (Zing! Okay, we didn't mean it, David. Relax.) With numerous TV credits to her name, Katie has already made a seamless transition into Hollywood with roles in Click, When a Stranger Calls and Taken. She joins the long line of beautiful young women terrorized by Freddy Krueger's scissor-like fingers in the Nightmare on Elm Street remake. She also hosted the world's worst wedding on CBS's mega murder-mystery series Harper's Island.
Parting With the Partridge: "My first few jobs, people were like, 'Oh, she only got hired because she's so-and-so's daughter.' Sure, it does help you get into a room, but at the end of the day, you have to be able to deliver and you have to be talented. They're not going to hire me because my dad is David Cassidy, who was famous in the '70s." —Collider
Is there a reason you’re a brunette in Harper's Island even though you’re usually a blonde?
Trish is this rich debutante living in Seattle, so I dyed my hair because it took me out of the California thing. I’m brunette right now, and it’s interesting to see how people react. When I was blonde, it was almost as if people didn’t take me as seriously. Like, “Oh, here’s another blonde girl.” I don’t think it’s fair.
Is that also why you didn’t keep those enormous prosthetic boobs you wore in Click?
You know what? I love being flat! When I had to have those giant, giant boobs in Click, it was painful. I realized why people with huge boobs have back problems. I could not wait to be done with that shoot. I think being flat is sexy.
