With the eighth and final season of Arrow set to hit screens later this year, we’re thrilled to announce that MCM London’s latest special guest is none other than the much-loved superhero show’s main star, Stephen Amell! Canadian actor Amell plays lead character Oliver Queen – aka the Green Arrow himself – on the long-running Arrow, as well as in other ‘Arrowverse’ series such as The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow and Vixen.
Based on DC’s Green Arrow comics, Arrow follows the adventures of billionaire playboy Oliver Queen. After spending five years as a castaway following the sinking of his family’s yacht, Queen returns to his Starling City home a changed man, secretly fighting crime as a hooded, bow-wielding vigilante. Gathering a team of heroes that includes John ‘Spartan’ Diggle, Rene ‘Wild Dog’ Ramirez and love interest Felicity ‘Overwatch’ Smoak, Amell’s character is on a mission to save the city – and woe betide the bad guys who get in his way!
In addition to playing Oliver Queen, Stephen Amell co-starred in 2016’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, while other small screen credits include The Vampire Diaries, 90210, Hung and Canadian sci-fi series ReGenesis. A huge wrestling fan, Amell has also made several guest appearances for the WWE and other pro wrestling promotions.
