arrow stephen amell facebook q and a cw 'Arrow's' Stephen Amell posts epic Q&A with spoilers and more

Stephen Amell is good to “Arrow” fans. On Friday (Jan. 31), the actor posted two 15-minute Q&A videos on his Facebook page. Why? Simply because he got 750,000 likes. Who knows what Amell will do at 1 million?

The first 15-minute video introduces the Q&A and explains how Amell likes his set trailer to have a Zen vibe.

Highlights of part 1 include:

  • There will be a co-Q&A with Robbie Amell (“The Tomorrow People”) in the future.
  • Paul Darnell taught Amell how to do the salmon ladder.
  • “I like it when other people are in costumes.”
  • Ra’s al Ghul is the DC character Amell most wants to see.
  • He refuses to answer anything about Olicity. Sorry.
  • Amell goes off on a multi-minute tangent about books. It’s kind of related to the question.
  • Christopher Reeve is Amell’s preferred Superman.
  • He is apologetic about using a phone upside-down in an episode.
  • “Especially when you have no depth perception …” Why will Oliver be having this problem in episode 15? 
  • “What sort of paraphernalia they’re sporting shouldn’t be of any import.” Feminism according to Amell.
  • Amell liked his Christmas mustache. No one else did.

A second, even longer Q&A followed on Saturday (Feb. 1).

Highlights from that:

  • “I would just like a third season.” Hopefully, it will be more than that.
  • We will find out what the tattoos all mean.
  • Amell misses saying, “You have failed this city!”
  • He didn’t turn down a role in “Fifty Shades of Grey.” He didn’t even audition for it. “I read the book, and I didn’t really like it … I have a better job than ‘Fifty Shades of Grey.’ I play a superhero!”
  • “I steal things from set sometimes.”
  • There will be information on Felicity in “Heir to the Demon.”
  • A bear visited Amell while shooting the Season 1 finale.
  • “My life is roughly perfect.” Yes. Yes it is. 
  • “At 22 years old, I would have totally f***ed this up.”

“Arrow” airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on The CW.
