It's Caity Lotz's birthday! 's star is turning 30 on December 30! Caity Lotz plays Sara Lance, a.k.a. in . Sara Lance, trained by the League of Assassins, is an expert swordswoman and can perform acrobatics while fighting opponents. However, Lotz not only plays a badass character but she's a badass herself.

Lotz gets to perform a lot of her own stunts, especially fighting scenes due to her background as a professional dancer and martial arts practitioner. In an interview with E! Online she said:

- Are you doing a lot of your own stunts? Are you even allowed to?

"Before I even started acting, I almost was gonna be a stuntwoman. So I've done a lot of martial arts training and a lot of fight choreography training, because you know there's kind of a little bit of a difference. On the show, I have an amazing stunt double and she does a lot of stuff for me because, two reasons – one, we don't really have time. I'm shooting a scene and they're shooting her, you know, jumping off of a roof top or whatever, and also insurance purposes. But luckily a lot of my fighting I do get to do, and I've had a little bit of training out here with our stunt coordinator, which was a lot of fun." - Caity Lots, E! Online
