Arrow, the newest addition to the list of hit The CW television shows, stars Stephen Amell on the title role. Since this is but another action adventure superhero film, it is expected that the lead actor should be equipped in all the skills in making the action stunts more realistic and powerful. With this, do you think Stephen Amell is the perfect person to fit the role? Check on him as he plays the role of the Green Arrow when you watch Arrow Season 1 Episode 1 online.
In an interview given to the actor, he revealed that if he will just be given the permission, Arrow actor Stephen Amell will do all the stunts performed by his character in the upcoming TV Series. However, the lack of time and concern about his welfare means most will be done by a stunt double or through computer-generated imagery, or CGI, he said during a recent panel discussion.
Arrow is set to debut on October 10 on The CW and Amell, who plays the lead role of Oliver Queen/ Arrow, was joined by three of the show’s executive producers at the Paley Center of Media in Los Angeles. The discussion was then distributed on the internet through Livestream.
For those who do not know it, Arrow is actually based on the DC Comics superhero Green Arrow, who first appeared in 1941. To prepare for the role, Amell started with the basic trainings for fighting, then he took up parkour and eventually archery, since this is really the skill that he needs to practice. Amell said that he got to do a lot of archery in the pilot episode alone but a stunt double does most of the shooting in the series because of the time it would take to train him and ensure that he could do all the stunts safely. Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said that if he is only given a chance, he would do everything if he is just allowed, but it is going to be very risky. Watch out for these stunts when you watch Arrow Season 1 Episodes online starting this October 10, 2012.
