Arrow Alum Stephen Amell, John Barrowman Share Stories From The Set

While the current health crisis may have forced production on his upcoming pro wrestling drama Heels for STARZ to hit the "Pause" button, that doesn't mean Arrow star Stephen Amell has just been sitting around, catching up on his binge-watching list, and trying to understand why anyone would prefer Twizzlers or Red Vines. Okay, maybe there was a bit of personal editorial there but you know what we're saying. One of the things he's been doing to both keep busy and give his fellow stuck-at-home folks some fresh content to help with the hours is How'd You Do That?.

In the video interview series, Amell gets the opportunity to speak with some familiar faces on how they got to be where they are in their careers. Earlier this week, Amell got to break bread with fellow Arrow alum John Barrowman and get him to open up (really not hard to do) about his first commercial shoot (in high school), reveal what he's doing to stay sane during quarantine, and even an interesting wine idea. But for Arrow fans, you'll want to hear from Amell and Barrowman as they share some behind-the-scenes stories you definitely haven't heard before. A large chunk of the Arrow talk happens around the 30-minute mark, and you should definitely keep the first-season episode "Dead to Rights" in mind.


Arrow season 1, episode 16 "Dead to Rights": DEADSHOT RETURNS — Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Diggle (David Ramsey) learn that Deadshot (guest star Michael Rowe) is still alive and his next target is Malcolm (John Barrowman). Malcolm invites Tommy (Colin Donnell) to attend a benefit honoring Malcolm for his work with Starling City but Tommy refuses to attend. Oliver encourages his friend to mend his relationship with his father while he can. Meanwhile, Oliver struggles to balance his new relationship with McKenna (Janina Gavankar) and his duties as Arrow. Katie Cassidy, Paul Blackthorne, and Susanna Thompson also star. Glen Winter directed the episode, written by Geoff Johns.
