You probably know her as the one and only Thea Queen from that show we love, Arrow (or if you’re total dorks like us, Marissa’s little sister from The OC). But don’t let her characters’ girly ways fool you, Willa Holland is cool as shit and her style is all #TKC. If we have anything to do with it, this burgeoning fashionista (expect some really cool stuff coming from her soon) is going to take over as your style muse real quick like. In Part One of our two part Willaaaahh series (yeah, one time around with this chick just wasn’t enough), the Hollywood veteran fills us in on how to get her enviable care-free locks and educates us on her look. And in Part Two? Well, you’ll just have to stay tuned.
TKC: Favorite city you have worked in?
WH: It’s a tie between Genoa, Italy and Vancouver. I have really fallen for this city.
TKC: On a day off in Vancouver where can we find you?

TKC: Cocktails, wine, or beer? What’s your drank?
WH: Beer, beer, beer.
