In what has become typical Arrow fashion, the action for Season 3 of The CW hit series is big and the personal drama is even bigger. Team Arrow is facing new villains and new heartache, all while trying to recover from the death of one of their own. In Episode 6, entitled “Guilty,” a body is found strung up in the Wildcat gym and Ted Grant (J.R. Ramirez) is the main suspect, leading Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Laurel (Katie Cassidy) to argue over Ted’s innocence.
During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor J.R. Ramirez (who also plays Julio on the Starz drama series Power) talked about not knowing exactly what role he’d be playing until he got hired, who Ted Grant (aka Wildcat) really is, why he loves having people under-estimate him, the similarities he sees in Laurel, how much fun he has working with Katie Cassidy, how big this next episode is for his character, having a run-in with the Arrow, and how grateful he is to have the challenge of developing and exploring two very different characters on two different shows. Check out what he had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.
