Tvguide.com have released two Exclusive photos of Seth Gabel in his role as ‘The Count’ in the second half of the first season. They also had a chat with Arrow’s Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim about ‘The Count’s’ time in Starling City and on Seth Gabel playing the role.
On The Count’s personality, mannerisms and reasons for being in Starling City:
“What gets Oliver into The Count’s orbit and puts the two of them in conflict is actually a really personal motivation,” – Marc Guggenheim
“Someone close to him is actually hurt by The Count. This is the first time the Arrow goes after someone purely out of revenge. There’s argument to be made that the Arrow’s general mission is one of vengeance, but this is very specific. This time, it’s personal.” – Marc Guggenheim
“The fun thing about The Count is he’s actually a businessman. He’s got a little bit of a sociopathic streak in him, for sure, but he sees himself as an entrepreneur, as creating not drugs, but art. He compares his drug to performing a social service and to a fine wine, so he has a very skewed view of what it is that he does. At the same time, we know that he’s not only sociopathic, but he’s very sadistic as well.” – Marc Guggenheim
On Seth Gabel’s performance:
“He’s a very interesting character, and the way Seth performs him, he plays him with a lot of flair,” – Marc Guggenheim
