Stephen Amell Gets ‘Emotional’ During Last Comic-Con With ‘Arrow’ Cast
The Arrow cast is dishing on the “cinematic” eighth and final season at 2019 Comic-Con!
Stephen Amell, who portrays Oliver Queen on the CW show, stepped out for the TV Guide Magazine Fan Favorites panel at San Diego Convention Center on Friday (July 19) in San Diego.
He was joined by his co-star Candice Patton (Iris West).
Their other co-stars Rick Gonzalez (Rene Ramirez), Katie Cassidy (Laurel Lance), and Juliana Harkavy (Dinah Drake) attended BuzzFeed Presents: A Batsh!t Crazy Bash With The CW’s Batwoman at San Diego Marriott Gaslamp Quarter.
“Last night was super emotional,” Stephen told ET at the event. “It actually caught me off guard, the number of people who came up [to me.] The director of Supergirl took like five minutes to thank me – which feels weird – for getting their break on Arrow.”
“It feels great,” he added about the upcoming season. “I think that [for] the cast and the crew, it’s starting to feel a teensy bit like a victory lap. It feels awesome … I was about to drop an F-bomb, but it feels awesome!”
“I think it’s a tribute,” David Ramsey (John Diggle) chimed in. “There’s a certain amount of what Stephen said: a victory lap. There’s a lot of stuff from the past. There’ll be some old faces that will show up. And I think, in terms of the pacing, it’s changed because we usually do this in 22 episodes, and now we’re doing it in 10, so it’s going to have the sense of a movie every time you watch an episode.”
“It almost feels cinematic,” Katie, who will be directing episode three, shared. “Each episode is huge.”
