Arrow: 10 Things You Didn't Know About Stephen Amell
3. He Developed A Tic For Oliver
Amell has brought a lot to the dual role of Oliver Queen and Arrow, and one of the most important has been establishing the differences between the two. One of the ways he has done this is by developing a sort of tic with his hands. This is a twitching type of motion that he does with both hands, almost as if he is holding or reaching for an arrow. Amell has confirmed that this is an Oliver trait, not one that he himself has, and it was his idea to bring it to the character, and shows when he is stressed or uncomfortable, and is pretending he has an arrow as a calming method, which highlights how much more comfortable he is when hes the Arrow as opposed to Oliver Queen.
NCTJ-qualified journalist. Most definitely not a racing driver. Drink too much tea; eat too much peanut butter; watch too much TV. Sadly only the latter paying off so far.
A mix of wise-old man in a young man's body with a child-like wonder about him and a great otherworldly sensibility.
