Please join us in wishing a very happy birthday to Arrow star Emily Bett Rickards!  She celebrates her 26th birthday today!

We all know and love her in her role as Felicity Smoak on the CW series Arrow.  This past weekend, the cast attended San Diego Comic-Con where they surprised Rickards with an early birthday celebration.  During the Arrow panel on Saturday, the cast, as well as all of those in attendance, serenaded Rickards with a rousing rendition of “Happy Birthday!”  Check it out:

Rickards’ birthday wasn’t the only surprise that the cast of Arrow celebrated during their SDCC appearance.  Much to the delight of fans, they also dropped an explosive trailer for their upcoming 6th season as well as casting announcements that Michael Emerson (LOST, Person of Interest) would be joining the series in a reoccurring role throughout season 6 and that we will see the return of David Nykl, who plays Anatoly Knyazev, the friend/nemesis of Oliver Queen (Amell).

As we wait until season 6 comes around to find out the fate of Felicity Smoak, please join us now in wishing Emily Bett Rickards an amazing birthday!  Emily, we hope all your birthday wishes come true!
