Cynthia Addai-Robinson praises Viola Davis' Amanda Waller

During the press junket for the movie "The Accountant" starring Ben Affleck, Addai-Robinson was asked would she reprise the role in a 'flashback' as a younger Waller in the sequel forming the squad (um but we saw that already in the first movie) and Cynthia was quick to decline. "Oh man. You know, look, I am a huge fan of Viola Davis so I would not want to get into the two Amanda Wallers fight, I would give it to her." She continued "It's been a gift to even sort of play in that world, and I like the idea that you know that I can sort of do both, that I can play a character like that who's really larger than life and iconic, and then sort of get to do something like [The Accountant] where, it just feels a little bit more rooted in reality and a little bit more human and relatable, but all the Arrow fans, I always get a lot of love and I'm forever grateful to be a part of that as well."
