Oliver Queen/Green Arrow on “Arrow”
Stephen Amell plays Oliver Queen/Green Arrow in The CW’s hit series “Arrow.” Joined by his team, Oliver protects the streets of Star City as the Green Arrow.
Amell starred opposite Megan Fox in the feature film “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows,” which hit theatres in June 2016. He also was seen in the television movie “Vixen: The Movie” playing the voice of The Arrow.
Amell played the role of Joran Van Der Sloot in “Justice for Natalee Holloway,” which told the true story of Beth Holloway’s quest to bring Joran, the presumed killer of her daughter, to justice. Amell received praise for his chameleon-like role as the Dutch sociopath.
On the small screen, Amell appeared opposite Zooey Deschanel on “New Girl,” and had a recurring arc as EMT Scotty on the series “Private Practice.” In the final season of the series “Hung,” Amell joined the cast as Jason, a young gigolo who becomes the competitor of Thomas Jane’s character, Ray.
Other notable guest star appearances include “CSI: Miami,” “NCIS: LA,” and The CW’s “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “The Vampire Diaries” and “90210.” In the fall of 2007, Amell won a Gemini Award for Best Actor in a Guest Starring Role for his work in “Regenesis,” a dramatic series on Canada’s The Movie Network.
Amell will be seen in “Code 8” in 2019, playing the role of Garrett and in the short film “Mi Madre, My Father” as Hal.
