as Oliver Queen

Stephen Amell plays Oliver Queen/Arrow in The CW’s series Arrow. Joined by his team, John Diggle (David Ramsey), Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) and Roy Harper (Colton Haynes), Oliver protects the streets of Starling City as the vigilante, The Arrow.

Amell recently wrapped production on the feature film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, opposite Megan Fox.

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.
