April 8th, 2013 // Leave a Comment

Actors Stephen Amell, Willa Holland, Emily Bett Rickards, John Barrowman and Colton Haynes enjoyed a working Sunday yesterday (April 07, 2013).

The group shot some interior scenes for of Arrow in Vancouver, Canada. After filming, the stars went outside to meet with fans who had been waiting hours in the rain to catch a glimpse of their favorite actors.

While Stephen wasn’t shirtless on set, during WonderCon 2013, we learned why one shirtless scene was included in the show. 

When asked whose idea it was to feature Oliver working out (and shirtless) in nearly episode, executive producer Marc Guggenheim said, “All the crazy stuff we put on screen started with Stephen.”

Apparently the writers saw videos of everything that Stephen was doing to get in top notch condition to play the role and said to themselves “Oh my god, he can do these things?” When they saw him do the salmon ladder they thought they would be crazy NOT to put that into the show.

I second that notion. Check out some footage of Stephen Amell doing his thing.
