The 2012 role of Laurel Lance probably marked the pinnacle of her career. Her being cast in the titular DC show “Arrow” was actually the start of the Arrowverse, which it came to be known. Her character quickly developed from a damsel to a lawyer and into a hero herself. She became Black Canary and stayed so until her character was eventually killed off. But this was not the end of Katie Cassidy and the Arrowverse as she would later come back as a villain from an alternative dimensions called Black Siren. She first made an appearance in “The Flash” as the antagonist character and would continue to play this role. She would reprise it again back in “Arrow” and had a much larger role in “Legends of Tomorrow”.
