Emily Bett Rickards, who plays the lovable Felicity Smoak in The CW series "Arrow", will celebrate her 24th birthday on Friday, 24 July.
Rickards, who was initially supposed to have only a small story arch in the series, impressed so much that the show-runners decided to make her a main character; her chemistry with Stephen Amell aka Olive Queen did not hurt either.
Fans may be shipping "Olicity" all the way, but when it comes to the actors, "Arrow" fans know that Amell is happily married and Emily Rickards and Colton Haynes aka Arsenal are the real couple; at least we hope they are.
Although neither of them has actually called each other boyfriend and girlfriend, they do post pictures with each other on social media all the time, talking about loving each other, but then add the word friend somewhere in. So we are still confused, but take a look at the slide-show above to see how adorable they look together.
Also, to commemorate Emily's birthday, we have compiled some of the best Felicity Smoak quotes from "Arrow":
Home Invasion Season 1 Episode 20
Felicity: "I just hacked a federal agency. Kind of makes me a cyber-terrorist, which is bad because I really don't see myself fitting in well at Guantanamo Bay."
Oliver: "Don't worry, Felicity. They don't send blondes there."
Felicity: "I dye it, actually. I keep your secret!"
The Undertaking Season 1 Episode 21
Felicity: It feels really good having you inside me... And by you I mean your voice. And by me I mean my ear. I'm going to stop talking. Right now.
Tremors Season 2 Episode 12
Roy: How many people know what - Who you are?
Oliver: Too many. But these are the only two that matter. John Diggle and Felicity Smoak.
Roy: Does this group have a name? Like Team Arrow, or something?
Oliver: We don't call ourselves that.
Felicity: I do. Occasionally.
Deathstroke Season 2 Episode 18
Oliver: With Slade out there, I don't have time for the company.
Felicity: Well, you have to make time, Oliver. At least three hours. The annual board meeting. There's absolutely zero way that the CEO can avoid being there. And I know it's been a while, so in you case you've forgotten, that's you. Do you remember where you put your business suit? Or do you keep it in a cool glass case, too?
This is Your Sword Season 3 Episode 22
John: I hate when they run!
Felicity: Well, at least you're getting your cardio workout in. I still have 40 minutes on an elliptical in my immediate future.
