    buzzfeed – Katherine McNamara has taken on a lot of beloved TV roles in the last few years. From her work as Clary on Shadowhunters to playing Oliver and Felicity’s daughter Mia on Arrow, she’s brought some fandom favorite characters we love to life. Now, Katherine is starring as Julie Lawry on The Stand, a role that is wildly different from anything she’s played in the past.

    To celebrate The Stand, Katherine sat down with us to chat about everything — like the best piece of advice she got from Angela Lansbury while on Broadway, which Shadowhunters moment she’s most proud of, the final days of filming Arrow, and how her role in The Stand came about. Here’s everything we learned:

    1. First, What’s the last TV show you binge-watched?
    Schitt’s Creek. I feel like I was a little late to the party, but I just needed something lighter. I’ve been watching a lot of darker and more intense shows, and I just needed to laugh and I needed something fun. I’m absolutely in love with that show.

    2. Which emoji do you use the most?
    [laughing] So, after doing Shadowhunters, and being around the guys for so long, especially via texting, I feel like I tell a lot of unabashed dirty jokes. So, I feel like I have to put the little smirk face (😏) to just make sure people know that it’s a pun or a joke. It just sets the tone.

    3. What’s your favorite movie of all time?
    Okay, I have three. Gilda with Rita Hayworth, The Princess Bride, and The Usual Suspects.

    4. Is there a movie or TV show that made you want to become an actor?
    I used to watch a lot of old Hollywood movies as a kid, and one of the ones I remember the most was Funny Face. It was the one movie that Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire did together. I was a dancer growing up, so I just loved it. It captured the magic of Paris. I didn’t quite know I wanted to be an actor when I first saw it, but there was something about that movie that, retrospectively, I think really influenced me in a lot of ways.

    5. What’s a role people would be surprised to find out you auditioned for?
    I was almost Fiona in The Giver a few years ago. I was the second choice and we didn’t know for a long time [if I would get it or not]. That was one of my favorite books growing up as a kid. I actually had to choose between flying to New York for a final callback for a Broadway show and flying to LA for that final callback. I was on my layover, I think I was somewhere in Texas, and I had to stop and make a choice. I ended up flying back to LA. I just loved that book so much I had to give it a go.
