Katie Cassidy announced to headline MEFCC

For a young model in the early ‘00s, making it to Hollywood was a dream come true. The Los Angeles-born model-turned-actress started as a child actor in comedy TV shows like “Listen Up!” and “The Division,” and a supporting role in Liam Neeson’s action film, “Taken.” Her first big breakthrough came after starring in the remake of ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ in 2010, landing her with lead roles in TV shows like Juliet Sharp in “Gossip Girl” and playing superhero Black Canary in the “Arrow” TV show.
