Gabby / December 5, 2017   •   Candids

Hello everyone! This is my very first post on Willa Holland Online, so I’d like to start by introducing myself. My name is Gabby and I’ve been a fan of Willa’s for a loooong time. I used to run a site for her myself, called Willa Holland Web, which I had launched back in 2012. I closed it in early 2015, and by then Neide and I were already good friends. I joined her here months ago, and I’m happy I finally get to update!

Willa was photographed while shopping at The Grove in Los Angeles yesterday, and our gallery has been updated with the images.

Thea’s back (and we’re very happy)!! Willa’s making an appearance on this week’s episode of Arrow, titled Irreconcilable Differences, and we’ve added episodic stills to the gallery. You can also read the episode synopsis bellow.

BLACK SIREN KIDNAPS LANCE — Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne) is kidnaped by Black Siren (Katie Cassidy) and Cayden James (guest star Michael Emerson), who are looking to trade Lance’s life for a weapon of mass destruction. Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Team Green Arrow must figure out a way to save Lance while still keeping the city safe.

Hello Willa fans! We deeply apologize on the delay of these screen captures but here they are! In case you are not aware, Thea has (finally) woken up from her coma in last week’s episode of Arrow! How much have you guys missed seeing Willa on your screen? We know we have, and we sure hope to see more of Thea from now on as she surely deserves a good storyline after all the hell she went through. High definition screen captures have been added to our gallery!

Hello Willa fans! As you must know, a brand new season of Arrow premiered this Thursday and in the episode we got to learn about Thea’s fate post-explosion. As many of us might have expected, things didn’t end well for Thea. Our girl was found by Oliver after the explosion and is currently in a coma. We sure hope Thea wakes up any time this season because after everything she’s been through, she deserves a happy ending. High definition screen captures from the episode have been added to our gallery.

Hello Willa fans! With Arrow returning with a brand new season this Thursday, we’re all left wondering what is going to happen to Thea. In conversation with Comic Book, executive producer Marc Guggenheim spoke about the reason why Thea was absent during part of season 5 (which had already been previously justified) and what’s happening with during this new season. Is she going to survive the explosion? Only one way to find out!

Whether or not Thea Queen survives the explosion on Lian Yu, actress Willa Holland will be back on Arrow this season. Showrunner Marc Guggenheim, though, hints that some of her episodes could be in flashback.

Thea’s absence in the second half of Arrow‘s fifth season was noted by many fans, but Guggenheim told ComicBook.com that it was the by product of Holland’s own request to scale back her time on set. While the explosion at the end of season 5 might seem like the ideal way to get rid of an actor who doesn’t want to be onscreen all the time, Guggenheim has said in the past that he doesn’t imagine that Thea will die on his watch, since Oliver has already lost both parents.

“We love Willa, we love Thea the character and we particularly love Thea’s relationship with Oliver,” Guggenheim told ComicBook.com. “That said, Willa came to us at the end of season four and she, very honestly, expressed a desire to cut back how many episodes a season she was doing. She’s a member of our family, and we wanted to honor that request. That’s what happens when you have a show that goes over a hundred episodes, people start to say, ‘hey, I would like to pull back,’ some people don’t want to renew their contract. There’s a whole host of different things that start to come into play and you work that into the story telling.”

So what’s next for the character?

“All I’ll say really, and you can interpret this however you want, is Willa is back on the show and we are doing flashbacks from people’s perspective that does not always include Oliver’s,” Guggenheim said. “I’ll let you extrapolate from that what you will.”

Arrow returns to The CW on Thursday at 9 p.m. ET/PT following the season premiere of Supernatural.

Neide / July 31, 2017   •   The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things

Hello Willa fans, we bring you something special today! Back in 2004, Willa made an appearance on Asia Argento’s movie The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things. While her scenes (shared with the Sprouse twins) were apparently cut from the final edit, we got our hands on some on set footage that would later be released on the DVD! In the footage, which you will find screen captures from in the gallery, we get to see Willa shooting a few scenes and just hanging on set with the Sprouse twins. A little fun fact, Willa was around 13 years old when this movie was shoot! Fair to say she doesn’t look to have changed her appearance none a bit over the years (and looks extremely adorable in these screen captures)!

ComicBook has just released an interview from Comic Con International featuring Willa! She explains Thea’s focus if she makes it out of the island, Malcolm Merlyn, Oliver’s relationship with his son and more! Sadly the interview cannot be embed, but you can watch it by clicking on the picture bellow.

Much of Team Arrow’s fate hangs in the balance after Arrow‘s earth-shattering season five cliffhanger. While fans are uncertain what to expect when the show returns this fall, one cast member has a pretty clear idea of what her character’s motivations could be going forward – if she survives the horrific blast on Lian Yu, that is.

Willa Holland, who brings to life Thea Queen/Speedy on the show, recently spoke to ComicBook.com during San Diego Comic-Con. While Holland was not able to reveal what state Thea will be in when Arrow returns in October, she shed some light on what Thea’s primary focus in season six could be. Check it out in the clip above!

“I think it can really go one of two ways for her,” Holland revealed, “especially depending on if she’s alive or not at the beginning of the season. I think that she’s just going to try to grapple with every piece of information that she’s been given over the last six months.”

According to Holland, those bombshells range quite a bit, and include the sacrifice Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) made on Thea’s behalf in the season five finale.

“She’s gotten handed a lot of information about herself, and about her family.” Holland explained. “And then also, her father just stepped on a mine for her. So I think her main focus if she were to be alive and well in the beginning of the season, would be to kind of grapple with all of that.”

Fans will just have to wait to see how Thea processes all of that – and if she is alive and well to do so – when Arrow returns to The CW in October.

In the trailer we get a recap on the finale episode of season 5, along with some scenes from the new episodes that feature Dinah, Laurel, Oliver, Slade (!!!) and William. Sadly, no Thea and we only get to see her running after Samantha who is looking for her and Oliver’s son, William. You can watch the trailer bellow.

The sixth season of Arrow premieres October 12 at 9/8c on The CW!
