Caity Lotz on why it’s so important that Sara is Captain

Representation has increasingly become a focus in mainstream media in recent years The CW is, in many ways, leading the charge with its portrayals of LGBT characters and Legends of Tomorrow star Caity Lotz says that is, in part, what makes her role as Captain on the series so important.

Speaking at POPSUGAR’s Play/Ground festival’s Screen Queens panel earlier this month, Lotz opened up about her character, Sara Lance’s, role as leader of the Legends — a move that puts her in charge not only as a woman, but as a bisexual woman.

At first, I remember everyone being like ‘Wow! She’s a woman, and she’s the leader of the group! It’s this big deal!'” Lotz said. “And I’m like ‘Yeah, of course she’s the leader! Duh!’ But I think another big deal about it is that she’s a bisexual woman. And if you think about, specifically, bisexual representation on television, and how much it’s lacking. And to see a female bisexual character as the lead, the captain of this ship, is I think a really really nice step in progress for representation.”

Part of that representation includes not just telling viewers that a character is bisexual, but showing it, too, and that’s something Legends of Tomorrow does. As recently as Legends’ recently-completed third season audiences saw Sara involved with both Constantine (Matt Ryan) and Ava Sharpe (Jes MaCallan) even as she and the rest of the Legends dealt with the threat of the time demon Mallus.

Caity Lotz Talks Avril Lavigne, ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Season Two

The CW, once a network of teen dramas with an audience average age below 20, has shifted more into superhero thrillers and comic-book action series that have pulled a wider range of fans in recent years. Standing out in the pack is “Legends of Tomorrow,” which returned for a second season Thursday night.

The series’ star Caity Lotz, who plays White Canary, came to the CW on “Arrow” after a stint touring with Avril Lavigne as a dancer. We chatted with Lotz about landing the “superhero shows kind of redefining the network,” her dance background, and how Lavigne helped prep her for stunts.

On her background of touring Europe in a girl band and dancing for Avril Lavigne:

Caity Lotz: I started coming to L.A. when I was like 17, doing dance jobs. Then I lived in Europe for two years, and then I was on tour for almost another year. I was in a singing group for this random period of my life — I was in a pop group, a girl group. It was definitely fun — I’d never been to Europe before and I went over with a couple of my best friends and we had a good time. We were based in Berlin but we traveled a lot. And then after that I went on a tour dancing with Avril Lavigne. [Dancing] is what brought me to L.A. I started with jazz and contemporary, and then I moved into freestyle and hip-hop and breaking. I’m a performer, but I was not the strong singer in the group — I mean, I’m not terrible. But I’m not going back to singing, that’s for sure.

On why she stopped dancing for Avril Lavigne:  

C.L.: When I got back from Europe, and I went on tour with Avril, I was like “I don’t want to dance anymore, this isn’t exciting for me.” We were performing in front of arenas full of people and I just was not excited. It wasn’t making me scared or nervous, and I was like “I think it’s time to move on.” And I started taking acting classes — I’d been interested in it for a while but was like, I’m not an actor, and then I was like, well I’ll just take classes, and then I did a two-year program and fell in love with it. And after that I just got lucky.

Caity Lotz for Venice Magazine

Caity Lotz has that don’t-mess-with-me stare on lock. If you’ve ever caught her as Sara Lance in the CW shows “Arrow” and “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” then you’ve been on the receiving end of her glassy, almost translucent, blue-eyed gaze, lasering right through your laptop or TV screen, shielding something sinister or, at least, a rock-hard mental toughness. That steely gaze can just as easily melt into all freckles and smiley optic-white teeth, a lighthearted countenance “Mad Men” fans may recognize from Lotz’s memorable turn as Anna Draper’s niece, the beguiling Berkeley-ite Stephanie Horton. This San Diego native’s chameleonic glare can wither or woo—but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Let’s back up a bit. For possessing such an emotive face, Lotz never dreamed of lighting up the silver screen. “I didn’t even think about acting until I took classes when I was 21,” Lotz, 29, says over the phone from her home in Los Angeles (where she’s on hiatus from filming “Legends of Tomorrow”). Her path to wooing Don Draper and kicking some serious butt on the CW is fairly unusual. “No one in my family is in the arts—not even close,” she laughs. Her father is a malpractice attorney; her mother, a housewife; and her only sibling, a brother, is a doctor. “I’m the black sheep in that sense.”

Caity Lotz Spills On What’s To Come On “Legends Of Tomorrow”

We caught up with Legends of Tomorrow star, Caity Lotz, to get the inside scoop on what’s to come! The actress spilled on behind-the-scenes moments, which Arrow star will be appearing in an upcoming episode, and SO much more! Check out her Q&A below and don’t forget to tune into Legends of Tomorrow every Thursday at 8 p.m. on The CW!

Let’s talk Legends of Tomorrow! We’re hooked. What is it about the show that made you want to be apart of it?
I was already so invested into my character from Arrow and the chance to bring her back to life to travel through time and space kicking @ss was too good to pass up.

Fans have been showing an overwhelming amount of love for the season premiere. What has the reaction been like for you?
We’ve been shooting for a while so it’s great to finally be able to share the show with everyone and see their reactions to it. It’s crazy driving around LA and seeing the billboards for the show up all over town. My friends keep sending me pictures of the advertising and are like “your face is on my bus!”

Without having to give too much away, what should fans expect from upcoming episodes? Any appearances by The Flash / Arrow cast?
I hope I’m allowed to say this, we will see OLIVER QUEEN in an upcoming episode. It was so fun to work with Stephen again and the situation our characters are in is crazy.

What does being a rebel mean to you?
To me being a rebel means choosing freedom and adventure over middle-class conformity. It means not only questioning society’s beliefs, but also standing up against them when necessary. A rebel offers an alternative way of being that is unaccepted or unrealized by the majority, bringing new possibilities into the world.

In the world of Hollywood who do you think is a true rebel and why?
Hollywood is a town full of rebels so it’s hard to pick one. Something I do want to say, however, is that a TRUE rebel always has a cause. Hollywood made the term “rebel without a cause” famous, but it doesn’t exist. A rebel is always serving a cause, consciously or unconsciously, as either a catalyst or an effect of the cause.

During your career how have you gone against the grain and stayed true to yourself?
I try and remember that my career isn’t everything and it’s not what defines me. A lot of people in Hollywood associate self-worth with fame and become so desperate to obtain it that they compromise themselves to try and achieve it. I understand that my value comes from within and that self-worth is only something I can give myself. I like to think this has freed me up to be able to become a passionate, creative, loving, and truthful artist.

‘Arrow’: Caity Lotz Flies as the Canary

The character of the Canary, Arrow’s distinct take on the fishnet-sporting, eardrum-bursting Black Canary, emerged earlier this season and quickly became a fan favorite. The masked identity of Sara Lance (as opposed to Dinah Lance in the comics), the Canary is a breathtaking vigilante who was forged within the League of Assassins and always seems just one small push away from darkness.

Sara Lance and her alter ego are both played by Caity Lotz on the show, who has demonstrated grace, humor and extreme physicality in the role… as well as a cool muscular physique that rivals those of her male costars. Tonight’s all new episode of Arrow, “Deathstroke,” focuses largely on the conflict between Oliver and Slade Wilson, but coming off such a stellar episode in last week’s “Birds of Prey,” we thought it was a good time to sit down with Caity for a chat about her character, playing physical roles and what it felt like to throw down with the Huntress.
