We recently reported on an Arrow reunion taking place on the SAG-AFTRA picket line today outside the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank, CA and many fans of the former CW superhero show were keen to know whether Stephen Amell would actually show up.
That's because Amell is one of the few, high-profile actors who actually dared to speak out against the strike when nearly every actor in Hollywood has shown their unwavering support.
So did Amell join his fellow Arrow actors and crew members in California? No.
That's because Amell was in New York, showing support for former Arrow actor Colin Donnell (Tommy Merlyn), who is currently starring in the Broadway play, The Shark Is Broken, which is a comedic take on the filming of Jaws.
In a show of solidarity with his Arrow castmates, Amell actually hit the picket line this afternoon, in New York.
When former Arrow showrunner Marc Guggenheim was asked to share his thoughts on Amell's recent comments, he stated, "I spoke with Stephen last night and we had a great talk. What he was saying really got misconstrued. He was in New York for Colin Donnell's play yesterday. He was picketing Warner Bros. Discovery this morning...Stephen is as supportive of SAG as he is of WGA."
Previously, Amell came under fire for calling the SAG-AFTRAs strike myopic.
"I support my union, I do, and I stand with them, but I do not support striking, I don’t. I think it is a reductive negotiating tactic, and I find the entire thing incredibly frustrating. And I think the thinking as it pertains to shows like the show that I’m on [Heels], that premiered last night, I think it’s myopic."
