Oliver Queen/Green Arrow on “Arrow”
Stephen Amell plays Oliver Queen/Green Arrow in The CW’s series “Arrow.” Joined by his team, Oliver protects the streets of Starling 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.
Amell played the role of Joran Van Der Sloot in Lifetime’s “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,” “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.
