Earlier this week, Arrow star Stephen Amell made headlines when he stated that he doesn't support the current SAG-AFTRA strike. The actor did later release a lengthy statement clarifying his remarks, but it was seen as more of an attempt to walk back what he said in the face of mounting backlash.
Now, a video clip has surfaced of Amell discussing the strike in an interview, and it's probably fair to say that this won't win him any new supporters!
Here, Amell indicates that he has no problem being the first to cross the picket line if it moves things forward and "gets people back to work." He also says he would have preferred if the initial comments he made - during a very public appearance at Galaxycon - weren't "made public."
It's worth noting that some have praised Amell for his stance, but most people we've heard from in the industry - including a few of his Arrowverse cast mates - are not too happy with his comments.
It remains to be seen if this will ultimately have a negative impact on Amell's career, but we can't imagine too many other actors are going to be falling over themselves to work with him once the strike is resolved.
