‘Arrow’ Star Stephen Amell on Playing the Iconic Lead Character: No Pressure (VIDEO)
It helps to be busy. “I didn’t have any time to think about it,” Amell, 31, tells reporters at San Diego Comic-Con. “I had all this super-intensive training. I was meeting people, I was meeting crew and I was meeting cast and I was in a new city.”
It also doesn’t hurt to have friends in high places. Who had the actor's back?
The pilot’s director David Nutter made sure the Toronto native felt supported through the process.
“So, I didn’t have a need to feel any pressure,” he goes on to say. “Because, I felt very safe.”
That’s a pretty good endorsement, eh? Watch the star tell the full story above.
Arrow premieres Wednesday, Oct. 10 on The CW.
