Amell says CW's ‘Arrow' is a hit with fans because ‘they can tell that we care' Stephen Amell, who stars as Oliver Queen on the CW show "Arrow," is very active on social media, communicating with fans of the show frequently.
Leading Arrows flight to success has been Canadian actor Stephen Amell, who stars as Oliver Queen/the Green Arrow (though hes known on the show simply as the Arrow as of now).
When asked how Arrow has been able to win over the fanboy base (a must when trying to develop a comic-book adaptation), Amell says the reason is simple.
The short answer is, I think they can tell we give a [expletive], Amell said by phone. To put it bluntly, they can tell that we care. They can tell that were protective over the script.
Green Arrow, Amell continues, has been around since 1941.
I did like the slow build-up to putting on the mask, Amell said. Once the mask was introduced, it was just on, and now its just a part of the uniform.
I like the fact that it looks like its been there the entire time, he continues.
But its not just all about archery, hoodies, masks and bad guys for Amell on the show. Yes, there is plenty of action befitting a superhero show but Amell says he must employ his craft as an actor, too.
Amell enjoys the challenge of continually having to switch to different versions of the same character.
Its one of the things actually that works to my advantage, because Im constantly having to check in on the character. When I go back to the island, I have to say to myself: OK, we are 18 months into this five-year odyssey what will he have learned? At what stage of development is he, says Amell, referring to portraying Oliver during different stages of his development as a person and a hero.
We are about to explore the island in one of our island-centric episodes, like we did the first season, and our thinking was: Oliver is, in terms of his skill level, is about 30 or 40 percent of the way there, Amell says.
Amell says his life has become a lot noisier thanks to Arrow, and not just because of the on-set explosions.
Amell also works on his social-media presence. He has nearly 1-million followers on Facebook, and he live-tweets when Arrow is airing, does question-and-answer sessions via video and highly encourages the use of funny, fan-made memes.
My brain is so full with the show, that I really do enjoy once I learn my lines and once were getting into a scene just toggling through my Facebook page and seeing things that people write, Amell said.
Amell also appreciates how relatively uncommon it is for a caped-hero show to make it big on TV.
The history of superhero shows on television is not rich with success, Amell said.

An active user of social media, Mr. Amell is acutely aware of the spotlight put on today's celebrities. "If I lose my temper or say something stupid, it does not matter if I do 99 interviews that are fantastic. They are going to take that one and it is going to be everywhere. Everything that you do everywhere, if you make a misstep, if you do not behave like you behave in your hometown with your mom in the crowd, then people are going to see you," he told host Trevor Lai.
Companies can also make missteps by choosing the wrong celebrity, added Adam Roseman, founder and CEO of FansTang, which manages online interactive communities for Hollywood stars like Stephen Amell with their fans in China.
