ARROW

The CW has posted an interview with actress Katie Cassidy about her "Arrow" character, Dinah "Laurel" Lance and what makes her so driven with a few new clips to boot.

"Laurel is very driven. She is full of love and really, really wants to give back to the world as much as she can," said Cassidy. "Her relationship with Oliver, he's the love of her life. I think he was there for Laurel and vice-versa until later in life where he made many mistakes and she sort of was left heartbroken."

Premieres October 10 on the CW

THE WALKING DEAD

Spinoff Online has posted a new poster for season three of "The Walking Dead" featuring Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes in front of the prison with his six shooter raised high.

AMC has an interview with "The Walking Dead" showrunner Glen Mazzara, who spoke about the character of The Governor.

"Part of the attraction of 'The Walking Dead' for our fans is that it feels real, and that means that The Governor has to feel real," Mazzara told AMC. "He needs to be a person who has a real soul and has a depth and intelligence, and he's not just a cardboard arch-villain who's going to play as a foil to our characters. I think David Morrissey is doing a phenomenal job finding the humanity in that character and by having that humanity so prevalent when he commits atrocious acts, I think they'll be that much more horrifying."

The showrunner also said that Michonne and The Governor may not be the only fan-favorite new characters introduced this season.

"There are a lot of fantastic characters throughout Robert Kirkman's book that we're dying to bring to life," he said. "Some will be introduced in this season and some will be introduced in later seasons. It's our intention to bring all those major characters to life."

Premieres October 14 on AMC

STAR TREK 2

Zachary Quinto spoke with The Wrap about finishing up "Star Trek 2" in his role as Mr. Spock.

"I feel like, you know, my work is done on the movie right now and until we have to go and promote it, then my work remains done and I let J.J. [Abrams] and his incredible team of people get in there and do the work that they need to do now," Quinto told The Wrap. "It was bigger, it was bolder, I think, than the first one, and that was pretty big and bold from my standpoint."
