Caity Lotz on ‘Captain Canary’ Relationship
In a recent interview at the ‘CW upfronts’ in NYC this week, actress Caity Lotz told E! News and Comicbook.com that she is just as upset as all the ‘Captain Canary’ shippers out there, that Wentworth Miller’s character was killed off of Legends of Tomorrow just as their characters’ relationship was starting to really heat up.
“I was hoping to explore it more, for sure. It was very heart-breaking the way that it happened, which of course is good, too,” she said, “I love their story,”
The ‘Captain Canary’ romance was not something that was originally scripted, but I have to say, it blossomed quite beautifully. Their personalities make for the perfect match.
“It just happened kind of naturally. Wentworth and I had talked about it a little bit. He would do little things in the scene, like lean in. It’s not written in there,” Lotz explains. “After a while I think she was like, ‘I guess he’s kind of cute.’ Because he’s edgy and kind of a bad boy so I feel like she was like, ‘Alright, I can see this.'”
Executive producer Marc Guggenheim also revealed in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, that there was no initial plan for a ‘Captain Canary’ romance on “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.”
“When we wrote the pilot, we never planned on a Sara-Snart relationship,” Guggenheim said. “There was actually a moment we cut from the pilot for time that we later released on the internet, which I’m sure will be on the DVD, where it was the beginning of Sara and Snart flirting with each other. They’ve always had a terrific rapport between the two of them, even when he’s pulling his gun on her and she’s saying, ‘Fine, kill me.’ They’re very compelling together and we were excited to be able to have them kiss before Snart went off into the sunset.”
Caity Lotz also said she’s looking forward to more surprises in season two of Legends of Tomorrow.
“It’s interesting, and I love seeing what they’re going to come up with in the writing,” the actress said. “You never know where it’s going to go, so sometimes you get an episode and it’s like ‘Woah! I did not see that coming!’ which is totally fun. Transitioning onto Legends was interesting because it has a different tone than Arrow. It’s been nice having that levity for her.”
Legends of Tomorrow will return to The CW in the fall.
